Hot Chick + Ugly Dude = True Love?

hotchickwithdouchebagA new study suggests the best marriages are those in which women marry men less attractive than themselves, Fox News reported. You mean, the people running hotchickswithdouchebags.com have it all wrong?

Guys who've lamented over their dream girls going arm-in-arm with ugly dudes are just ignorant; and maybe we all should have paid more attention to the entire plot of Beauty and the Beast.

In this study, involving 82 couples married in the last six months and published in the Journal of Family Psychology, men who were better-looking than their wives were more likely to be unhappy and have negative feelings about their marriage.

Conversely, in couples where the wife is more attractive, both partners tended to be very content. This research suggests (in evolutionary terms, mind you) women are less choosy about their man's looks as long as he is able to help them reproduce. Men, on the other hand, are programmed to choose a mate who is most likely to pass on their genes and look for youth, health and physical attractiveness. Go figure.
