A Man’s Height Can Predict His Love Life Success.

This survey considers men over 6’1″ to be tall, and under that to be short. I’m 6 feet even. So I guess I’m short. And for the purpose of this study, that’s a good thing!

Because shorter men tend to stay in marriages longer, according to a big huge study that’s the basis of this Huffington Post article “New Study Reveals Interesting Link Between Men’s Height And Divorce”

“Short men were found to marry later in life than average or tall men, but were 32 percent less likely to divorce. They were also more likely to marry less educated and younger women. Once married, they did less of the housework and earned a much higher income than their spouse.

Why? The researchers hypothesize that because height is related to masculinity, short men may use other aspects of the relationship — income, housework — to demonstrate their manliness. “Short men may exchange their breadwinner status for less housework … because a lower share of housework or a higher share of relative earnings allow short men to enact traditional gender ideals, thereby performing their masculinity in the absence of symbolic anthropomorphic differences,” the researchers write in the paper.”

Huh. Who knew. I still think I’m taller, but this story says otherwise. Although I take a bit of offense with the findings, but that’s just me.
