Personality really is more important than looks for women when it comes to marriage material, according to a study.
So for all those men who have struggled to find love so far, it’s good news for the future.
Researchers found women look for a good character when choosing someone to tie the knot with, and don’t mind a few physical impairments.
The US study followed 13,034 people and their relationships over 15 years, to the age of 34, and each participant was rated on looks, personality and grooming.
Men rated as having an above-average personality were found to be more likely to get married.
But it’s not all bad news for the good looking ones, because they are more likely to live with their partner but remain unmarried, according to the study by University of Miami author Dr Michael French.
He also said more couples now see moving in together as a trial, rather than a commitment.
