    Why gorgeous girls are happier with plain guys

    He's had many an unkind comment about his looks when set against the radiant beauty of girlfriend Sienna Miller.
    But Rhys Ifans seems likely to have the last laugh because psychologists reckon that happier marriages result from attractive women who wed uglier men.
    And women who marry handsome men had better watch out. Men who saw themselves as better looking than their wives were more likely to be disgruntled and have negative feelings about their marriage, experts found.

    The University of Tennessee study leaves 40-year-old Ifans set fair if, as expected, he marries 26-year-old Sienna this year, and it might also explain a few other couples such as Catherine Zeta Jones and Michael Douglas and Marilyn Monroe and Arthur Miller.
    The Tennessee team tested 82 newly-wed couples for facial attractiveness and the quality of their marriage.
    Their results, in the Journal of Family Psychology, suggested most men who married attractive women were happy to bask in the glory of their partner's beauty.
    But Professor Jim McNulty reported: "Men who were more attractive than their partner demonstrated a tendency to offer less emotional and practical support to their wives."
    He said "evolutionary perspectives" offered an explanation.
    "Attractive men have available to them more short-term mating opportunities.
    "This may make them less satisfied and less committed to the marital relationship."
    Strathclyde University psychologist Alastair Ross said many men enjoyed the prestige of having a beautiful wife.
    "Men are rated as more likeable and friendly when they have a wife who is very attractive," he added.

    I think tractor seats have less leather, chemicals, and plastics too.

    See ducky this is where we part ways...I don't care if a chick's rack is "real" or fake...as long as it is "real nice" I as happy as Richard Simmons at a cub scout sleepover.

    Who said anything about her tits? I object to her face and hair. All the money spent on plastic surgery, and she couldn't be bothered to fix the one thing that everyone has to look at.

    She has a face?










    (Ok, I admit to alluding to her face in my earlier post but I could not resist).

    Brick, I've missed you. Good to see you're still around.

    The older I get, the more I look like Ernest Borgnine, yet my wife stays beautiful. I could never figure why she married me, but now, it's clear.
    For the morning will come. Brightly will it shine on the brave and true, kindly upon all who suffer for the cause, glorious upon the tombs of heroes. Thus will shine the dawn.
