This explains a whole lot - today on my wedding anniversary - why my wife and I are good!
Although I am suspicious that the scientists behind this study were not the best looking dudes. And that's not me stereotyping scientists. It's me stereotyping the ones who would work to draw THIS conclusion.
A new study out of Southern Methodist University in Texas and Florida State University found that relationships are more successful if it's an attractive woman paired up with a less attractive guy.
The researchers found BOTH people are happier that way.... hence why I'm styling in my marriage!
According to the study, the women are happier because the hard-to-look-at guys are more likely than good-looking guys to give gifts, do extra housework, and really give their full effort you know where and when!
And the men are happier because, you know, they've got a hot wife.
The researchers found that when things were the other way around, and there was a husband who was more attractive than his wife, it led to big problems . . . especially for the women.
Those guys were less likely to do them favors, give them gifts . . . AND make them insecure to the point where they were more likely to obsess over exercising and dieting.
Again... no issue here! Love ya honey, happy US day!
