    According to a single study of Indonesian women, who are shorter than average, therefore we can make sweeping statements about evolutionary behaviour. Screw this psychology ****, I'm going back to the natural sciences....

    Obviously height is an attractive trait and people are, when controlling for other factors, probably gonna be more happy the more attractive they find their partner, so it makes sense. This means very little for any given individual's circumstances and this is essentially a nothing article.

    edit: I do like the comparison with people favouring certain foods; it is similar to why I figured height preference exists, evolution can't keep pace with us lol

    Yup. I'd explain the correlation in terms of gender norms. There's a higher rate of divorce in couples without traditional gender norms for a reason. Equally, with a greater height differential there is more likely to be more manifest dominance in the male, vs. submissiveness in the female, psyches (whether conscious or not)

    There is?

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/0...n_5731688.html (just one article on this I chose because I found a stat in there, there are a lot)

    "Short men were found to marry later in life than average or tall men, but were 32 percent less likely to divorce."

    I mean you are probably talking in general and it may well be different in that case but it doesn't seem to be the case with height. I couldn't see the original study though loads of articles cite it; I only seem to find a link to the abstract. But I doubt all the different articles would be lying lol.

    That's interesting but couples these days don't care so much about gender roles! I'm a pretty rally girl to some people I guess but I still would prefer a taller guy even if he was just a few inches taller
