Ladies: If you want your relationship to last, marry a short man, say researchers
Tall men may want to get married earlier, but their marriages won’t go the distance like men with a shorter stature, a new study has claimed.
It found the rate of divorce among short men is significantly less than among average and tall men.
They were also more likely to marry much younger women, and make more money than their spouse.
‘This further confirms an existence of height-based status exchange in which short men compensate for their lower physical status with higher proportional earnings, while tall men appear more likely to use their status to attract women with higher relative earnings,’ said authors Abigail Weitzman and Dalton Conley of New York University.
