When women are in good positions in life and have the capability to get commitment from men, they always choose a really tall guy to be their husband/boyfriend. Hell, when we look at past marriage data, it was found that when women are the breadwinners and better educated than the men, they often picked a male who was very tall to be their spouse. While women who were financially dependent and not so great position in life were more than likely to give a man that was considered short (5'9 and under) a chance at a LTR.
Thus we see that women see intrinsic value in a male once he is tall and he does not need to compensate by bringing wealth and status to the table for her to consider him good enough. A male who is tall and loses his job will still be seen as having value and worth in a females eye while a male under 6'0 will be viewed as a liability and someone to replace if he does not find employment soon.
