Researchers have discovered what they believe is one of the to a happy marriage. A in height between the two partners could be a ingredient for marital . Professor Kitae Sohn of Konkuk University in South Korea has discovered that the a woman's husband is, the happier she is. Mr Sohn said: "A greater difference in a couple was positively related to the wife's ."

He said: "Although it has been known that women prefer tall men in for evolutionary reasons, no study has investigated a taller husband makes his happier." His study included analysing from 7,850 Indonesian women who expressed a preference for taller men. The women said they did not know why they preferred a taller mate. Sohn wrote: "Women like tall men, while unable to say why." He added: "This is similar to people favoring , salty and sugary foods without knowing exactly why."
