So, throughout my adolescent life I've heard quite a few people generalising that usually attractive men/women have a tendency to end up with a partner who is 'less' attractive than they are. (I put 'less' in inverted commas because really that view is subjective to each person).
Perhaps this is a result of relationships they observe in real-life, to which I have witnessed too among the couples in my social circle. Or, it could be from celebrities: eg: Heidi Klum with Flavio Briatore, Catherine Zeta Jones with Micheal Douglas, Hugh Jackman with his wife, and Tom Welling with his wife just to name a few. This list was compiled based on what I've read through people's discussion about this topic on various forums.
Do you or do you not agree with this generalisation? What's your own personal take on it? Do you know any couple that fit the description? Why do you think that this is so, because opposites attract?
