What happened to happy wife, happy life? A new study says husbands are happier in their marriages when their wife is attractive.
First of all, was research really necessary? Cause the moment your man says; “Hey baby, you wanna enter this study to find out if I’m gonna be as happy with an unattractive wife as this other guy with the attractive wife?” He was destined for the most miserable four years of his life.
Second of all, why are people marrying people that they don’t find attractive. Third of all, how much money did the participants get paid to admit that they found their spouse unattractive, and for wives to be cool enough with it that they kept participating for four years. Did this study also come with some marriage counseling?
The article also said that when husbands felt they were better looking than their wives “They didn’t seem to be quite as motivated to help out their wives when they were more attractive than their wives.” So let’s get this straight…a husband who thinks he is the cat’s meow, and that his wife is kitty litter, and is not pulling his weight around the house; finds that his marriage isn’t going so well. You don’t say!
Now don’t get us wrong, we believe that both people in a marriage should consider the things that attracts their spouse to them. But may we suggest to husbands everywhere (especially those dudes that are married to us) that y’all remember that the bible says; “It is better to dwell in the wilderness, than with a contentious and an angry woman.” (Proverbs 21:19) So, if you’re a husband who signs up for the attractive wives study, and you are not in the; I-think-my-wife-is-so-hot-I-get-burned-when-I-hug-her-group, should you be shocked if you end up sleeping outside?
What do y’all think, does a beautiful spouse make a beautiful marriage?
