The key to a happy marriage is apparently all to do with this

Good news for all you short people....

What makes a happy marriage? Shared interests? A good sense of humour? None of those.

According to recent research, the key to a successful, long-lasting marriage is having a decent-enough height difference.

In a study published in the Journal of Personality and Individual Differences it was revealed that the greater the height difference between the couple, the happier they tend to be. 7,850 women were studied and the researcher discovered that a greater height difference in a couple directly correlated with the wife's happiness.

"The long period of the dissipation indicates a powerful impact of male height on women's psychology, probably prepared by evolution. Although it has been known that women prefer tall men in mating for evolutionary reasons, no study has investigated whether a taller husband makes his wife happier."

The researcher also added that the height differences happiness effect would, "gradually weaken over time and entirely dissipate by 18 years of martial duration."

Well, there you go. What does everyone think? Any truth to the research?
