This just in, ladies: boys will like you more if you’re pretty. Everything you’ve ever heard about a guy loving you no matter what is a lie. Okay, that’s extreme, but your marriage will be better if you don’t start eating 2,000 calories per day and stop shaving your legs, just because a guy decided he likes to hang out with you sober. Seriously. The words “I’m getting used to your bush” should never fall out of his mouth. Attracting your guy is a lifetime commitment. It doesn’t end the second you become Facebook official. You don’t get to stop trying just because he put a ring on it. It’s science.
According to a study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, men with attractive wives reported higher marital satisfaction. Women didn’t seem to care what their husbands looked like, however, but attractive women also reported happier marriages. Why? Because if a guy feels like he “lucked out,” he’s more willing to try to make his wife happy. That’s right. A guy will care more about your needs if you’re pretty. A guy who feels he is more attractive than his wife is less likely to feel motivated to help her out. Sick.
To be honest, I’ve been saying this for years. Men are really visual, which is why they get a semi while looking at a photo of Kate Upton doing nothing but being hot, but the more attractive thing to us is watching a decent-looking guy play football with a six-year-old, because #boyfriendmaterial. Don’t get me wrong, I’m attracted to a muscular guy as much as the next girl, but I’m falling in love with this guy, not this one.
I don’t know what this says about our futures, and I’m not saying marry an ugly guy. I’m just saying marry a guy who’s uglier than you.
Happy Pretty wife, happy life.
