Researchers have discovered what they believe is one the keys a happy marriage. A difference height the two partners could be a secret ingredient marital bliss. Professor Kitae Sohn of Konkuk University South Korea has discovered that the taller a woman's husband is, the happier she is. Mr Sohn said: "A greater height difference a couple was positively related to the wife's happiness." However, he said the attraction and benefits a woman having a tall husband do not last forever and diminish time. Sohn said the appeal a taller husband "gradually weakened over time". He said he was surprised to find that it took 18 years of marriage this appeal to disappear.

Professor Sohn said he was intrigued as to why women seemed to prefer taller men. He said: "Although it has been known that women prefer tall men mating evolutionary reasons, no study has investigated whether a taller husband makes his wife happier." His study included analysing data 7,850 Indonesian women who expressed a preference taller men. The women said they did not know exactly why they preferred a taller mate. Sohn wrote: "Women simply like tall men, while unable to say why." He added: "This is similar to people favoring fatty, salty and sugary foods without knowing exactly why." However, the BBC noted that shorter men can be more stable, better husbands.
