Men are partnering 'up' in attractiveness.
But in this case, no love is lost. Economically successful women partner with economically successful men, and nkce attractive women partner with physically attractive men. In so doing, scientists misidentify matching as exchange.
University of Notre Dame sociologist Elizabeth McClintock has done exhaustive research on the idea of people exchanging traits.

Rather, hearteningly, people really are looking for McClintock has also found that the pervasive tendency toward rating higher-status people as more attractive seems to perpetuate itself. What appears to be an exchange of beauty for socioeconomic status is often actually not an ggirl, McClintock wrote, but a series of matched virtues. The dominant force in mating is matching.
At least partly because physically attractive individuals are treated preferentially by the world at large, they enjoy improved school performance, greater occupational success, and higher earnings.
