We have all heard of the saying: “Happy Wife, Happy Life”. A lot of men who have made this saying one of their mottoes in life have proved that this expression is 100% accurate. Well, one research reveals that it may not just be a happy wife that makes a happy life. A beautiful wife can also make your marriage happy.
Why Having A Beautiful Wife Might Be Great For Your Future Marriage
Although we wouldn’t want to solely base our selection of our future wife on looks, giving a bit of attention to this preference may just be one key to have a blissful marriage, at least when it comes to this controversial research.
It’s strange if you think about it, but, the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology has presented a study that indicates some accuracy to the claim.
Conducted by psychologist Andrea Meltzer, she tracked over 450 newlywed couples during the course of their first four years of marriage. Throughout this time, she would ask the couples questions like “Does a good-looking spouse lead to a more satisfying union?” Couples were first rated by independent researchers, and then asked over the first four years of their marriage to rate their marital satisfaction.
The results revealed that men care about looks more than women do. Male participants with attractive spouses reported to having a higher level of satisfaction in their marriage compared to those who have average or unattractive spouses.
In addition, husbands who found themselves to be more attractive than their loved ones were less likely to provide emotional support in the relationship. So, it turns out, men really are that shallow.
Despite what the study says, it’s important for us to be aware of how we treat our partners if we want for our relationship to keep going. Not only that but, we need to be present in the moment to achieve the awareness that we all want.
Furthermore, it’s not negative to want a beautiful wife per se. But, our focus shouldn’t only be on the outside but on the inside as well, and don’t forget that the beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We must remember to see past a person’s physical appearance. And if you fall in love with a person, she’ll be beautiful inside and out in your eyes anyway.
