Why Beautiful Women Marry less Attractive Men- by George Odok

One factor that plays a very prominent role when it comes to taking a decision on the choice of a partner is how good looking the person is. It is so important to some people that it wholly forms the basis of their decision.

Findings have shown that while men gives so much prominence to a woman’s look or attractiveness, women on the other hand, pay less attention to a man’s look but rather give more attention to other factors, like security and a man that would appreciate and support them.

Other factors that influence women’s choice of a partner include personality, focus, wealth, social status, intelligence, background, fatherly qualities, reputation and sometimes masculinity.

Anyone who feels a beautiful woman married an unattractive man because of money might be living in the past. Given beautiful women’s preference for less attractive men, does it imply that these women chase ugly men? No.

A study published on points out that men who are less attractive usually go after the beautiful women, unlike handsome men who wait for the women to come to them.

It stressed that the confidence, optimism and persistence of such ugly men who approach beautiful women could make such women find them attractive eventually.

Some women who spoke to this reporter explained that being in a relationship with a less attractive man gives them security, peace of mind, as ladies would not find such men attractive, and that such men often reciprocate by being committed to making the relationship work.

“Most women want men who can make them feel loved, secured, appreciate them, and if a man is able to do those things, coupled with an appreciable social status, among other things, then, he would be a woman’s choice, one of them said.

Men tend to behave better when in the presence of attractive women, thus, it can be argued that men who are married to such women tend to do everything possible to sustain their marriage, which will make the marriage to be more exciting.

Men behaves positively when their wives are very attractive. An ugly man tends to see a beautiful woman as an asset that should be preserved and appreciated, thus men would want to nurture the relationship. It is possible for men who are handsome to take a less attractive woman for granted because of the likelihood of being able to go after better looking women.

Juliet also told this reporter that “the reason why some women marry less attractive men is, if a lady is conscious of her beauty, then, she would want someone who can appreciate her and help her preserve it, and ugly men, would help her preserve it more than handsome men.

“For ugly men, it is a sort of psychological compensation for the ugliness and they could use it as a form of defence mechanism. Thus an ugly man will pay what ever price payable to get a beautiful lady” , Juliet said.
All in all, whether handsome, beautiful or ugly, married couples should respect their marital vows, feel safe in each others arm and show unconditional love which is the foundation of togetherness.
