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."

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. ;)
