Studies

Love lives of short men:

Short men were found to marry later in life than average or tall men, but were 32 percent less likely to divorce. They were also more likely to marry less educated and younger women. Once married, they did less of the housework and earned a much higher income than their spouse.

Why? The researchers hypothesize that because height is related to masculinity, short men may use other aspects of the relationship -- income, housework -- to demonstrate their manliness. "Short men may exchange their breadwinner status for less housework ... because a lower share of housework or a higher share of relative earnings allow short men to enact traditional gender ideals, thereby performing their masculinity in the absence of symbolic anthropomorphic differences," the researchers write in the paper.

Love lives of tall men:

Tall men were found to marry sooner in life, but were more at risk for divorce later on, as shorter men had more stable marriages. However, researchers note that the link between short men and stable marriages could be because they chose to marry later (or didn't have the option until later).

Tall men were also more likely to marry women closer to their age, and who were better-educated.

Why? "From the perspective of relationship exchange models, this indicates that the tallest men exchange their attractive attribute (height) for better-educated spouses, while short men are unable to do so," the researchers write."

Could be because people who marry later tend to stay married longer.

I think this has more to do with marrying later and taking things slower. Tall men get better looking women on average and better looking woman, in most cases, are more likely to cheat and be in it for money.

The link is money, time, and jobs. That is about it. Short men are more likely to have average jobs so they are home more and have more time to spend with their kids and wives.

It is even said that taller men make more and have higher salary jobs on average so this means less time at home.

Back in the day, people who married young stayed married the longest. I think it is the opposite now because it is too easy to cheat. Not to mention most men who are on the taller side have more options to cheat. Think about it.
