Right fellas, this is the moment you have been waiting for; tall men and short women make the best partners – it has been scientifically proven. In a 2017 study, researchers from Konkuk University in South Korea surveyed over 7,000 couples. And they discovered that there is a direct connection between the ratio of a man’s height to his wife’s and the happiness in their marriage.
Furthermore, Doctor Kitae Sohn noted ‘a greater height difference in a couple was positively related to the wife’s happiness’ and ‘the female preference for male height increased women’s reproductive fitness’ reports Unilad.
And the reason behind all of this according to Science Direct is that the woman ‘might get used to her husband’s height and it correlates such as physical attractiveness and strength’, reports Science Direct. And Dr.Sohn doesn’t have explanations for this; he just simply states ‘women simply like tall men’,
He adds: “This is similar to people favouring fatty, salty, and sugary foods without knowing exactly why. Such foods are essential to survival but were scarce as humans evolved. Hence craving such foods increased reproductive fitness in the past.
And Goodfulness writes: “Taller men may appear more trustworthy and capable to employers. Thus, they might be first considered for raises and promotions. However, in the overall scheme of things, a man’s resourcefulness was only a minor factor. That is when compared to his height and her happiness.”
They add: “It’s not difficult to also conclude when examining the subject of height, how the study also discovered lankier men are considered more attractive than shorter guys. Supposedly, taller men experience greater life satisfaction.”
“With this sense of self-esteem and confidence, it might make it appear that larger men are more appealing. We can blame this on evolution. Women are drawn to bigger, taller men because they were thought to be better hunter-gatherers during prehistoric times.”
