Men who are hotter than their wives, however, are more likely to take them for granted.

They don't want to wonder where your affection lies and have to guess your true feelings.

Having a less attractive man means having someone who isn’t easily going to drop you for a hotter girl.

We’ve watched the evolution of our parents’ relationships and our favorite celebrity breakups; we’ve experienced the beginning of our own slow demise.

Women finally came to the insightful conclusion that everyone grows old and ugly, so we may as well find a man who loves us when our junk goes bad, and we can't remember what we looked like at 25. Women need to hear it, see it and understand that we are appreciated.

According to the study, published in the Psychological Science Journal, “Men who rated themselves high on attractiveness were more likely to over-perceive women's interest.

The more attractive they actually were to women, however, the more likely they were to under-perceive.”It's this eery catch-22 that makes women fall for the unattractive man because he acts like an attractive one.

Women, on the other hand, are less obsessed with the genetic makeup of their children and are looking for stability in a man, not just strong genes.

Having a hotter wife is also the reason husbands are more attentive and motivated to make their marriage work.

As the divorce rate increases, boys continue to let us down, and sexual trysts with hot men only ever turn into one-night stands; maybe we no longer want to waste our time looking for the love our parents never found.
