Wives are happier with uglier husbands, study confirms

  • A study has found that wives tend to be happier with uglier husbands.
  • Wives with handsome husbands were more likely to follow strict diet and constantly attempt to lose weight for an obvious reason- to look hot for their partners.

Do you ever wonder some gorgeous women end up with ugly dudes?

Science has finally confirmed what Filipino rapper Andrew E. has long concluded in his famous 90’s hit Humanap ka ng Panget– women tend to be happier with less attractive husbands.

The ugly truth about attractiveness was determined through a study carried out by researchers at the Florida State University. In the study, relationships of 113 newlywed couples in their 20’s were evaluated to determine the role of attractiveness in an individual’s overall happiness.

Respondents were asked to to answer a questionnaire about their personal desires to be fit and to diet. Moreover, each respondent was ranked on desirability based on face and body attractiveness.

Results showed that wives with handsome husbands were more likely to follow strict diet and constantly attempt to lose weight for an obvious reason- to look hot for their partners.

Just by thinking about crash diets and rigorous exercises can make one very worried and a little less happy.

Meanwhile, wives with less attractive husbands didn’t feel the need to do these things just to please their husbands. Instead, they spend most of their time enjoying life with their not-so-attractive beaus.

“The results reveal that having a physically attractive husband may have negative consequences for wives, especially if those wives are not particularly attractive,” researcher Tania Reynolds said.


“The research suggests there might be social factors playing a role in women’s disordered eating,” she added.
