A recent study has claimed that shorter women who couple up with much taller men have the happiest relationships – and it's all down to evolution.
This study has found that there is an unexpected scientific correlation between a husband's stature and his wife's happiness.
Researchers found that out of almost 4,000 Indonesian couples that took part in the survey, the happiest were those with the greatest height difference.
In other words, Made in Chelsea's Louise Thompson and her personal trainer boyfriend Ryan Libbey should just about be the happiest couple ever.
Of course there were other factors that played into their happiness, including self-esteem and income but the study found height played a surprisingly big factor in most of the relationships.
As for the reason all these short girls are happy with their tall guys?
Not only do shorter women feel protected by their more traditionally 'masculine' other half but being tall is also a biological indication that your partner is strong enough to protect a family.
Unsurprisingly, this works wonders for the guy's confidence and results in a happy, secure relationship.
So the greater the height difference, the happier the couple who are unconsciously following these prehistoric rules.
The 2017 study also showed that taller men also have an unsurprising advantage in the workplace.
Unfair or not, their statuesque height makes them seem more trustworthy and capable of greater responsibility.
In other words, their mere genetics puts them first in line for that promotion which, in turn, contributes to their partner's happiness.
So does a happy marriage really rest on one personal's (very tall) shoulders?
We're still unconvinced.
