Is it always necessary for the man to be taller than the woman in a relationship or marriage? Tom Cruise married twice to beautiful women taller than him. And is happy too.I know of some that are happy even when the woman is taller, but what do you think?
My wife is happy I'm tall lol. Seriously though it seems to be the norm for women to like taller men. It has to do with our genetic drive to make our species stronger every generation.
There are of course many exceptions to this and by all means anyone and everyone should do what makes them happy.
Believe it or not, it was a serious issue in my first marriage. I'm around 5'10 and he was about 5'4. I didn't think about it before we got married but apparently it really upset him. After a few years he started giving me cute little nicknames like "amazon" and "behemoth". After a few more years, I started countering with "it's not my fault you are a pygmy."
His new fiance is 5'0 tall, my current husband is 6'1.
I guess it would work as long as everyone is truly comfortable. If not, then they could take their issues out on their partner in the long-term.
I'm 6'8 and my wife is 5'4. I purposly have never dated a woman over 5'5 for the sheer fact of how I saw the tall girls in school get teased. I picked my wifes body type long before I met her in hopes that if I had any daughters, now I have three, that they would have a fighting chance to not be as tall and big as I am. So far it's worked great and my 2 boys are giants....funny how that worked out.
I think it's a personal choice that should be respected.
If a woman wants to marry a man who's shorter than her, younger than her and makes less money than her, she has every right to.
But as Melissa pointed out, there is a risk of ego-deflation on the man's part.
So silly, really.

I recently wrote a hub on this. If you are a wife who suffered this, the Other Woman who broke up a marriage, or a husband who left a family - what do you think explains the interest of the OW in breaking up a family?
