It also states that tall men may want to get married earlier but their marriages don’t as long as men with shorter stature.
The research also reveals that short men are more likely to marry much younger women and make more money than their spouse.
Authors Abigail Weitzman and Dalton Conley of New York University who conducted the research say;
“This further confirms an existence of height-based status exchange in which short men compensate for their lower physical status with higher proportional earnings, while tall men appear more likely to use their status to attract women with higher relative earnings”.
According to Daily Mail, the two researchers drew on two different cohorts from the Panel Study of Income Dynamics. The authors show that short, average and tall men’s spouses are qualitatively different from one another.
They indicate that at least one physical characteristic commonly associated with physical attraction influences the formation, functioning, and stability of longer-term relationships.
They also found tall men more likely to do the housework while the proportion of combined housework is lower among men who are shorter than their spouse than among men who are taller.
It is also revealed that short men are 1,450% more likely to marry someone taller, while tall men are unlikely to be with someone who is their own height.
To make up for their lack of stature, short men tend to use money.
