Gorgeous women are happier with plain guys

I've been noticing a lot of beautiful girls marrying guys who are not that good looking. Is this a trend or what? Now I know why. Psychologists say that happier marriages result from attractive women who wed uglier men. Wait a minute. I thought gorgeous women are only happier with uglier men with big fat wallets. No? From Daily Mail:
The Tennessee team tested 82 newly-wed couples for facial attractiveness and the quality of their marriage.

Their results, in the Journal of Family Psychology, suggested most men who married attractive women were happy to bask in the glory of their partner's beauty.

But Professor Jim McNulty reported: "Men who were more attractive than their partner demonstrated a tendency to offer less emotional and practical support to their wives."

He said "evolutionary perspectives" offered an explanation.

"Attractive men have available to them more short-term mating opportunities.

"This may make them less satisfied and less committed to the marital relationship."

I should be glad that at least I'm not that good looking.

Evolutionary processes dictate that the female will always look for the best male for the best genes.

If this were really true, Julia Roberts would still be happily married to Lyle Lovett. On the other hand, the blog Hot Chicks with Douchebags is devoted to just this type of relationship. ;)
