The Journal of Family Psychology has released a study that finds the best marriages belong to women who marry men that are less attractive than themselves.

Psychologists who studied newlyweds found men who were better-looking than their wives were more likely to be unhappy and have negative feelings about their marriage.

In couples where the wife is more attractive, both partners tended to be very content.

The research, suggests that, in evolutionary terms, women are less choosy about their man’s looks as long as he is able to help them reproduce.

Men, however, are programmed to choose a mate who is most likely to pass on their genes and look for youth, health and physical attractiveness.

The tests involved 82 couples married within the previous six months. if he is hot, than she is unhappy. But if she is hot and he is ok than they are both happy.

I get it!!
