And they’re more likely to be the breadwinners: Conley and Weitzman estimate that 78 percent of short men out-earn their partners, compared to 69 percent of average men and 71 percent of tall men.Although other research has suggested that taller men earn more—perhaps because of employers’ biases—they didn’t find evidence of income disparity among the different height groups.Tall men may be, in Weitzman’s words, “aware of the status that is conferred by their tallness”—which might make them less motivated to pitch in at home.Short men are more likely to partner with women who are older and less educated.

I’ve always wished to be a couple of inches shorter so I could wear high heels and not feel like a walking tree.“Short men may have a harder time getting married because they’re viewed as less masculine,” says Weitzman.“Women who have traditional gender ideals may find that less desirable.” If they do find a partner, though, they’re less likely to get divorced: Divorce rates for tall and average men were basically indistinguishable, but 32 percent lower for short men.However, most of my female friends admit that it's still important for them to date or marry a man who is taller than them.And not only a bit taller either, a good two inches taller is required.When a 5’4” blogger added five inches to his height on his Ok Cupid profile, his response rate jumped from 16 to 29 percent.
