    Relationship between beautiful and ordinary, will it work?

    The relationship between a beautiful girl and an average looking guy or a handsome and ordinary girl, will it work? will it last forever?

    handsome guys and ordinary girls work all the time but average looking guys need a lot of money if they want a real beautiful looking girl

    A relationship or marriage between practically any 2 adults can be healthy and long lasting, as long as the couples learns and practices evidence-based relationship stabilization and maintenance skills.

    There are no guarantees!

    Case in point Cindy Crawford & Richard Gere, Brad Pitt & Jennifer Aniston. Both couples were considered to be made up of "beautiful people" and those marriages ended up in divorce.

    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
    Very rarely do relationships end because of anyone's looks unless there has been a major change in their appearance after they got together. (packed on a lot of weight..etc)

    Most relationships end over bad behavior, attitudes, or when couples are not on the same page/wanting the same things.

    It is a state of mind. like the old saying, "beauty is in the eyes of the beholder" If one is in a relationship, what he or she should be looking for is happiness not beauty.

    good looks may fuel the attraction, but love is blind, it will eventually look through the eyes of a heart and not the eyes in the head. Beauty sure didn't love fall in love with beast because he was good looking. Maybe a fairytale, but, it happens all the time.

    I'm sure there are a lot of relationships between a beautiful and a not-so-beautiful that are successful.  What is beauty after all?
    As Miss Piggy says:

    "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and it may be necessary from time to time to give a stupid or misinformed beholder a black eye."

    Forever is a term that can't be reduced to a simple measure of attractiveness.  Many issues come into play........

    The beautiful rose, grows contentedly, along side the simple daisy in many gardens.  The tall and waving corn stalk, bears no distaste for the lowly potatoe vine.

    It is people, and not nature, who over complicate things.

    I agree with dashing scorpio, as beautiful is truly in the eye of the person him or herself. Beautiful is so many things. People can have a beautiful soul, a very sweet personality. If you have dated some drop dead gorgeous people as I have but found them shallow as an ass crack, then you will appreciate a genuine beauty in other ways. It is quite possible to fall for someone who may not be beautiful, but still be attractive to you in other ways...

    If the relationship is based less on looks and more on feelings and at an emotional level, I believe the relationship can last as long as you both want. It will certainly work. I hope it works out for you. smile

    I don't think looks has a huge impact on the longevity of a relationship especially once it has passed the initial bonding stage.

    I think once you have been with a person for a while, it is not always the exterior looks that matter but the more powerful and forever beautiful HEART and SOUL.

    The initial stages of 'attraction', 'love', 'romance' and 'bonding' - over a period of time being with another person takes second position, what takes priority is their behavior and personality. 

    All the best.

    I believe there has to be a certain level of attraction for a relationship to work. Attraction is usually (but not always) based on looks.
