A University of Tennessee research team just released a study that they say shows a couple is more likely to be happy when the wife is thinner than her husband.
The study, Miller-McCune magazine reports, looked at 169 newlyweds for four years and found that husbands were more satisfied when their wives had a lower body mass index than themselves. The study also showed that wives with lower BMIs than their husbands also stayed more satisfied over time.
The study also claimed that the weight of the partners didn't matter so long as the wife's weight was always lighter than the husband's. In addition, the study took into consideration the couple's financial standing, education and other factors that could affect the final result.
