you ever witnessed stunning women dating less appealing men? Nevertheless, they seem incredibly happy and in love with one another.
What makes this possible? Shouldn’t a stunning lady be drawn to a man who is just as attractive, if not more so? Evidently not…
Study Finds Happiest Women Have Less Attractive Men
Women are happier when their husbands are less beautiful than they are, according to research from Florida State University.
In the study, which was written up in the journal Body Image, 113 newlywed couples were examined at. They all agreed to have their attractiveness evaluated.
Tania Reynolds, a doctoral student, and Andrea Meltzer, an assistant professor of psychology, discovered that women with body image issues were more likely to be rated as “less attractive” than their husbands.
In other words, they experience pressure to diet and lose weight if their husbands are viewed as being more attractive than they are.
Reynolds stated, “The results show that having a physically attractive husband may have adverse effects on wives, especially if those wives are not exceptionally appealing.”
However, the wives of men deemed to be more beautiful did not experience this increased pressure to diet and “look pretty.”
What about the guys? Their diet motivation was low regardless of their own or their wives’ appearances!
Of course, the study has drawbacks, not the least of which is that the sample is predominantly Western and that beauty is a subjective concept.
The findings nevertheless bring up some crucial considerations.
The first and most visible problem is related to problems with body image, particularly for women.
Why did the study’s “less attractive” women feel pressured to “look nice” for their attractive husbands?
Is this due to their concern that their handsome spouses won’t think them appealing enough? And eventually, lean toward a woman who is more attractive?
Would these “ugly” ladies overdo it with extreme diets, resulting in mental and physical problems?
Does this imply that in marriages with less desirable men, the females will eventually have no concern about their weight, resulting in obesity and other lifestyle diseases? It goes without saying that this has major health consequences for women.
Not to mention the effects on men’s health since, regardless of how gorgeous they or their partners are, they don’t care about dieting.
