Abstract from the Study "Personality And Individual Differences" - June 2013. PDF available here

Physical characteristics, such as height, play an important role in human mate preferences. Satisfaction with one's own height and one's partner height seem likely to be related to these preferences. Using a student sample (N = 650), we show that women are not only more selective, but also more consistent, than men, in their partner height preferences. Women prefer, on average, a larger height difference between themselves and their partner (i.e. males being much taller than themselves) than men do. This effect is even more pronounced when examining satisfaction with actual partner height: women are most satisfied when their partner was 21 cm taller, whereas men are most satisfied when they were 8 cm taller than their partner. Next, using data from our sample and that of a previously published study (N = 52,677), we show that for men, height is more important to the expression of satisfaction with one's own height than it is for women. Furthermore, slightly above average height women and tall men are most satisfied with their heights. We conclude that satisfaction with one's own height is at least partly a consequence of the height preference of the opposite sex and satisfaction with one's partner height.

It's just fashion and a taught prejudice. It started in the dark ages because the poor were malnourished and short so it was codified into fairy tales to teach girls to seek tall (wealthy men) it's no longer relevant but like the fairy tales in the bible it just won't go away. Humans are actually evolving to be shorter and more efficient, we have been for 400k years and the  trend continues and short people are winning out in spades. All the equations to predict offspring height always predict an offspring that is shorter than the tallest parent. Western civilization through this taught prejudice is flirting with extinction in the long run.... One deadly STD would wipe out many parts of the U.S. as a result of this prejudice in a couple centuries.
