Can You Marry A Man Shorter Than You?

These days, we are all aggressive about what we want. And it is not any different with women. Guys want trophy gfs, wives and so on. Now, the question is, how many ladies here can genuinely love and marry a man shorter than they are. I am not saying short ppl are not to be married. Just that, ladies these days want  tall muscular guys as  husbands. What happens to the not-so tall and muscular guys? The word "taller "means you are about 4 inches (and above) taller on bare feet not some high-heel induced height. Honest replies pls.

Of course, the answer to your question is subsumed in the larger question Can you marry someone you dont like? Make you no waste our time, before someone else go come begin ask sey Can you marry someone who has money, or can you marry someone who's light or dark, or can you marry someone from your tribe.

I know its somehow,but i think its really cool when your guy is abt 2-5 inches taller than you,

You feel secured which is what we ladies want.

But i really wonder what happens to the 5ft guyz,will they marry ladies of abt 4ft 7inches and give births to midgets.lmao

Nevertheless,if a lady dates a guy thats shorter,does that mean she's got to forget about heels,when they give her those sexy looks and steps, i dunno ooo

The short women will win over the tall ones because most men want there shorter than them, which is why it's difficult for tall women to date. “ speaking from experience”

Of course they are annoying,if all the short girls (considering they are in the majority) marry the few tall men,what happens to the tall women? just being curious,how do the short women compete with the tall women for the tall men.who wins

I see no reason to attack a sensible woman, unlike your height conscious self.

you seem to be mentally deficient, but I pray you'll grow up some day to understand that your man being 2-3 inches shorter than you would not deprive you of the happiness/success you seek in a marriage.

this thread is for pinheads like you by the way.

ok, now I see what you're saying.

so then yes you are agreeing with me. that height isn't a prerequisite for marriage, and that you won't fall in love based on your woman's height.

so why all the fuss when there shouldn't be any.

anyway b4 I part,

there's just something wrong in say you can't marry a man because he's shorter than you are(assuming the height difference isn't great).

i know it's your preference but it's eye-popping, at least to me.

omg sorry i'm going to say this, but you're so dumb.

You ask:

Where did I say I won't ever fall in love  

and you wrote this:

I said I can never fall in love let alone propose,

now, let it sink in.

and I have been on the subject matter all this time. try to present a clear argument. develop your own fundamental thoughts, don't pull out a non-factual research from nuns-ville.

and not every source of research is legitimate.

you provided me with a research conducted on women born in 1954 if i'm correct, and it's filled with eye-popping conclusions, such as the one i pointed out with regards to the height playing a role in how fertile the couple is able to become.

and the text I bolded, is not true. men can also fall prey to deceit.

anyway, don't be too sure that you won't fall in love, maybe not in the near future, but you will eventually fall in love.

What you have here is someone stating his opinion. The site I referenced was from a study conducted by the Open University of UK. 10,000 people took part in this study, so there is a high degree of legitimacy to it.

I wouldn't fall in love let alone propose to the kind of woman you are referencing here. I am smart enough to figure out if a chick is into me or not, so the issue of marriage proposal doesn't even come into play here.

Only guys with low self esteem date and propose to women that are not into them. I don't belong in that category.

by the way GNature, if the woman you love refuses your marriage proposal because you're shorter than she is, just sit in a corner and say "oh it's okay women prefer taller men"

The overwhelming majority of women want their men to be taller than they are, that's just a fact.

Please provide the link from ezine.com just as I provided one for mine.

"So you hear all the psycological stories and studies that prove that women want a tall man because in a woman's mind tall men come across as protectors and providers and that basicaly women are looking for this feature asa primal maternal instinct.

Puhhlease! Sure some tall women like tall men, but some also like pigmies, some like their men dark, some like their men fat, some like their men skinny, some like their men, short.

You see its all about choice and impression"

many women are indifferent when it comes to the height of their spouse. Love is more important to a marriage than height is.

It is a well known fact that Women prefer their men taller.

Please see the study done by a university below.

Tall men and short women go hand in hand

Tall men and short women are the most successful at attracting partners and having children, UK researchers say.

Scientists at the Open University based their finding on an analysis of data from 10,000 men and women born in Britain in one week in March 1958.

They found that the taller the men were, the less likely they were to be unmarried or childless 42 years later in 2000.

For women, however, the opposite was true. It was shorter than average women who appeared to be best at finding partners.

The results are thought to explain why men are generally taller than women.

Dr Daniel Nettle, who led the research reported in the Royal Society journal Proceedings B, said: "It seems that tall men and petite women are favoured in evolutionary terms, even in a modern population, so the height difference between men and women is unlikely to disappear."

The study showed that an averagely tall 1.77 metre (5ft 8ins) man was less likely to have children than a man with a height of 1.83 metres (6ft 1ins).

In contrast, women who were most likely to be married and have children by the same age were between 1.51 metres (4ft 9ins) and 1.58 metres (5ft 1ins) tall. This is well below the national average woman's height of 1.62 metres (5ft 3ins).

The findings support earlier research which suggested that women find taller men more attractive, said Dr Nettle.

But for men height was less important than indications of a woman's fertility.

Short women generally reached puberty earlier than tall women, whose fertility was often delayed because of the extra energy they spent growing.

In addition because women prefer men taller than themselves, tall women were left with a smaller pool of potential partners. This contributed to the evolutionary selection of short women.

Dr Nettle said: "We have come to think that men pay attention to physical characteristics of their mates, whilst women pay more attention to status and resources.

"In the case of height, this is clearly not true. In choosing a husband, size matters."

now you're sounding funny.

Physical attraction is normal for all humans.

When you see a woman across a room,something attracts you even before you find out she has a brain.

Be honest,it doesn't make you shallow,it makes you human

you dare say all women, and I dare disagree with you, we can go on forever.

@ what if the taller spouse doesn't have greens in his pockets, then what? ehn? "f[i]u[/i]ck all that useless height, it's supposed to put food on the table"

by the way, do you go to sleep everynight telling your husband, "oh hunnie, I'm so happy you're taller than me otherwise this relationship wouldn't work and I wouldn't love you"

Bottom, bosoms, and height, don't draw me to a woman by the way. i'm not shallow.

yeah o whatever you this girl.

it really doesn't matter how tall,cute,or all of the above. its all about the individuals & the compassion you share 4 one another. you don't have to be perfect just to get a guy/girl. just be yourself. a lot of people need that advise, and that's what I'm helping you realize.

There are fat men dating hot chicks, midgets dating lepa shandis, chinks dating dime black girls, , etc,

there was a thread in which numerous people responded about the effect of age on a relationship.  many people on the thread said, "hey it's okay, it's your love that matters"

how come that cannot be applied here.

I hardly contribute in those threads personally but I ain't no spring chicken.

Men are visual beings and they love well endowed women that's why bosom augmentation is big business,the same way we prefer men taller than us.

No one is stopping you from responding, fekuti.

again calm yourself, notice I didnt just say YOU are the one whining about other people's responses. I said why do "GUYS", there are quite another of guys in this thread weeping over the comments made by the girls in here. Like i said before, you males are allowed to want big breasted women so why is it a problem to want tall guys without hearing lame cliches like "oh love is what should matter" "you should look into his heart instead' blah blah yada yada rubbish

How much of height difference is a no-no, because as I stated earlier, a few inches shouldn't be too much of a deal.

I always thought love is the only thing that matters, as is usually the campaign on this forum

still,a woman would prefer a taller man,it's just that way.

We prefer the man to be older and taller.

In marriage the most important thing for a woman is security

And the image of security to a girl besides financial is a man that can protect her and an older,taller man fits that image.That's just the way it is
