Lower Divorce Rate for Shorter Guys

Share It

ShorterguyslowerdivorceratesIn marriage, the short guys get to keep the girl. The divorce rate has been particularly high in recent years but if you’re married to a short guy, science says you may not be a statistic. Apparently, the divorce rate is lower for shorter guys.  Sometimes the short guys don't always get the girl but newfound evidence suggests that they might be more likely to keep them. But what does height have to do with divorce rates? One of the researchers for the study said, "This probably means that women who don't want to be in a relationship with short men are more likely to leave before they get married, rather than after.”  A new study done by the National Bureau of Economic Research found that short guys, defined as shorter than 5-foot-7, are about 18 percent less likely to marry than taller men, but when they do, they divorce at lower rates. Specifically, 32 percent lower. Divorce rates for tall and average guys are basically the same, the study found. "There’s something distinct about the women who marry short men," researchers noted. But what exactly? The researchers say that shorter men appear to be in charge in the relationship. Their partners tend to be younger, less educated, and earn less at work than they do. 78 percent of short men out-earn their wives, as opposed to 69 percent of average guys and 71 percent of tall guys. Surely this isn’t a scientific approach to marriage but there certainly is some hard evidence to show that there is a lower divorce rate for the vertically challenged.
