When a Washington state resident marries someone who is more attractive than he or she is, it could spell trouble for the relationship. Men who marry a more attractive woman could still be headed for divorce even if they are attentive to the needs of their wives. There are a couple of different reasons as to why this may be the case. In some relationships, the less attractive partner sabotages the relationship because of jealousy.
It is also possible that the more attractive individual is less committed to the relationship. Research does suggest that those who were friends before they started dating may have stronger marriages regardless of how attractive each person is. In such a scenario, what a person looks like may not matter when it comes to starting or maintaining a relationship. Research also suggests that men who marry women who are more attractive than them are happier overall.
It is also worth pointing out that most people have a good idea as to how attractive they are. Therefore, a person is likely to seek out and find a partner that is roughly as good looking as he or she is. This could minimize the chances that a person is in a relationship with someone who won't be in that person's life for the long run.
Those who go through a divorce may experience a variety of emotions. However, making decisions based on emotion may not often be prudent. As a result, it might be advisable for someone in this position to have legal assistance when negotiating a comprehensive settlement agreement.
