Donald and Melania Trump are the perfect couple, according to new study

US President Donald Trump and Melania Trump are the perfect couple, as according to a study, men tend to veer more towards good looking women while women habitually seek out men with higher social status.
According to the study published in Royal Society Open Science journal, men rated looks 27 percent more important than women did while looking for a partner. When it came to women, they prioritized men's social standing 27 percent higher than men did.
To conduct the study, specially created teams from the Glasgow University and East China Normal University questioned 99 women, 113 men from the UK and 120 women and 142 men from China aged between 16 and 30, Daily Mail reported.
The authors of the study said that the data confirmed their prediction that "men in both samples would show stronger preferences for physical attractiveness than women did."
While the study did not directly take into account the preferences of men and women of the United States or Trump and Melania's personal dynamics in any way, it did help explain why the pair has managed to enjoy a successful marriage for 14 years despite a host of differences between them - including a 24-year-long age difference - and the constant media scrutiny on their relationship.
Doug Wead, a historian and the author of 'Inside Trump’s White House: The Real Story of His Presidency'— which he wrote after spending two years with the Trump family, appeared on 'Fox & Friends' last month and publicly dispelled speculation that the president and the first lady might be growing apart.
“They are a couple. Well, [Melania’s] so dignified and she handles herself with such grace. In every conversation, [Donald Trump] brings up Melania. Melania this, Melania that," Wead said.
Wead added that the Trump family was a close-knit unit despite being composed of many members. And when the tensions are running high, what with Trump's job, the president still found time to make light of any situation by joking around with his wife.
"Melania, honey, look at this incredible journey I have brought you on," Wead cited POTUS as saying, “And she’s like, ‘Oh yeah, thank you so much. It’s hilarious. I love it.'"
