There are always scientific studies released claiming to have found some incredible nugget of information. And though statistics are neat and can measure results, nothing is truly proven to be entirely factual. Meaning, the study’s subjects provided the results. The outcome might not be the same if you participated in the research. Variables such as culture, nationality, race, sex, employment, education can all influence a study’s results. Nevertheless, they are cool to read and analyze.
The outcome of a 2017 study with 8,000 Indonesian participants found a correlation between a husband’s height and his wife’s perceived happiness. The taller the husband and the more inches which separate the two physically, the more significant pleasure the wife will have. Though after 18 years of marriage, there appeared to be a substantial drop off in this delight.
You might think the wife’s perceived happiness is only due to the inches between her and her spouse. Not so.
There are other factors that can also contribute to this emotion. The man’s income, self-esteem, and confidence also play a key role in her overall joy.
