Ladies can you marry a short guy?

No matter how much fun kids make it look, the literature suggests that life for short guys generally falls short. Studies claim that short guys are less wealthy, less powerful, less sexually attractive, and generally less happy than everyone else.

Research has shown short guys make better partners, too. A study conducted by two NYU sociologists found that men who are 5'7” or shorter are 32 percent less likely to divorce than taller dudes. They also do more housework than tall and average-height guys and are more likely to bring home more money, the study found.

A short man is shorter than the average woman in his country. Research indicates that most women prefer men who are taller than them. The global average height of men is 171 cm or 5'7, which is a lot shorter than most people expect.

5′8″ males are considered “borderline short”. The ideal height is somewhere between 5′10″ and 6′2″ for males and 5′5″ and 5′9″ for females. To sum up, men are considered short if they are 5′7″/171 cm or shorter and women are considered short if they are 5′2″/158 cm or shorter.


The best reason to date a short guy is because you're not a shallow, regressive woman who associates sexual and emotional compatibility with whether or not the guy is a few inches taller, and because you don't equate your own femininity and sexuality with the notion of being shorter, weaker, than your protective mate.
