okay so I was reading an article on askmen.com. the title of the article is "Benefits to marrying and unattractive person," there were 10 reasons, and the scary thing is...they all made some sort of sense. more than others of course, but my question is do people really do this knowingly? I mean we all know that one person (2 or 3 depending lol) that is clearly more attractive than his/her counterpart, but usually the people match in some way...nerd/nerd, ugly/ugly, big/big. hot/hot...I realize its not all about looks; I got that. but I mean, the number 10 reason was something like, it makes you feel better about yourself. really? your talking about someone your spending the rest of your life with...it does make sense though, I mean think about some super attractive girl/guy you know. he/she probably has more than one friend they constantly hang out with that's not near their level of hottness. why? well its kind of obvious, or at least the percieved reason is obvious. it makes them look better; comparatively speaking. so, I was just really intrigued by this article and wondered if people really weighed the options like that...pls respond and let me know if you agree/disagree and why. thanks

is this it? link
i only made it to reason 6 before I had to stop my eyes from bursting into flames... no, I don't think individuals with fully functioning brains consider reasons like that when choosing their partner. furthermore, I don't choose who I'm friends depending on their attractiveness. I'm friends with people who I genuinely like, with whom I share several interests.
overall, that article (and website) is total bullsh*t. save your brain, stop reading such drivel.2
