Does height matter in a relationship?

How tall are you? Oh dear, you are too short for our boy. To a majority of girls reading this, I'm sure you would have come across this conversation at least once.

Honestly, I don't understand why height is so fantasized in a relationship. I myself dint grow more than 5'2'' but I'm married to a guy who is way more than 6 feet. The other day I bumped into a blog that told, studies prove that short wives and tall husbands have the happiest marriages. I mean? Now I get it, why we are happy together! To be frank, I love all the advantages that come with having a tall partner. From changing light bulbs to taking out things from wardrobe advantages are endless. People generally think that all tall guys either belong to the army or police forces. Although, mine is not. So wherever we go, he always gets extra respect. I don't have to hold an umbrella when it rains. Whenever there is a big queue for dosa, samosa, or chai nothing is impossible for a tall guy. But for me, all I need to do is just sit back and relax. And the best part, A tall guy naturally needs bigger beds and bigger bedsheets. But I, get to enjoy the king-size beds.

All that matters in a relationship is trust and friendship. Height is no big deal. At least has never been for us. And I hope not for you too. As I write this I remember one phrase he often tells me. "The best part about us is that when we hug, you are always at the level of my heart and that's where you belong. Awww, isn't that sweet of him?
