Tall Husbands And Short Wives Are Scientifically Happier Than Other Couples





What’s the secret to a happy marriage? It might be your spouse’s height. Scientists have just discovered that tall husbands and short wives are much happier than other more evenly-matched couples. The findings may have confirmed that size indeed matters when looking for the perfect partner.

The study was conducted by Kitae Sohn, who posed the question, “Does a taller husband make his wife happier?” The research involved “nationally representative Indonesian data” and found that “a greater height difference in a couple was positively related to the wife’s happiness.” Although the evidence was only found in marriages that last up to 18 years, it was clear that a tall husband is almost guaranteed to have a shorter and happier wife. Although it was unclear why are so happy, here are a few possible reasons.

The Better Protector

A different study found that women had a more positive opinion about taller men. It was revealed that girls believe they are bigger and stronger than males of average height.

This certainly seems like our evolutionary preferences at work. Women are probably more likely to choose a mate who can protect them and their children.

It’s A Feminine Thing

Who doesn’t want to feel small and delicate once in a while? Taller men also make women feel more feminine because of their size.

The aforementioned study gathered interesting comments from girls who admit they want to wear high heels and still be shorter.

Some men might actually have everything. Another study found that taller men are smarter.

Of course, this doesn’t mean that boys of average height aren’t as intelligent. These are just the average results from the study.

They Make More Money

Believe it or not, scientists have found that tall men are more likely to earn more. An article declared that a person over six feet can earn up to $166,000 more than someone of average height.

So it looks like taller husbands are more likely to appear stronger, smarter, and richer. Is there anything else that a wife could probably want in their marriage? Perhaps there are a few other factors that can truly make a relationship last but if you’re looking for longevity, height is certainly might.
