height and marriage success

Do short people get divorced less often than tall people?

Tall men usually get more benefits in life.

But does it pay to be short when it comes to keeping a marriage strong and healthy?

Listen to all my podcasts

A recent study seems to tip the scales in favor of the height-challenged dudes.

Sociologists from New York University sifted through data collected since 1968 on 4,500 families.

Marriage and divorce have implications for socioeconomic stratification and asset accumulation, our observed effects suggest that men’s height may indirectly affect their economic status and socioeconomic mobility through these demographic processes.

In simple speak, this study finds short men stay in marriages longer than tall men…

That is, short men were 32% less likely to divorce.
