How does obesity truly affect sperm count and fertility?

In both men and women...if the man is obese and if the woman is obese... whcih one being obese affects fertility? Does it only lower the chances if BOTH are obese, or just one of them?
My BIL is very obese and he and my DH's sister have been trying for a long time and it hasn't happened. I really think it's because he's so fat and refuses to even touch a vegetable besides mashed potatoes or corn. She's a skinny thing but what are the odds that she is infertile when he is that obese??
