Some people think this much of a size difference between a husband and wife is weird. American fashion model Rhea Durham has been married to model/rapper/actor/producer Mark Wahlberg since 2009.It's funny…most people don't realize that Mark Wahlberg is a shorter man because he's, well, Mark Wahlberg (i.e., kind of a badass).

Now, don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing bad in finding your man’s height swoon-worthy.I distinctly remember brainstorming who I was going to invite to my first dance as a freshman. He was cute, friendly, funny, and pretty much the ideal first-dance date candidate except for one thing: He was a couple inches shorter than me. If I still felt petite wearing four-inch heels with my frame of 5 feet 6 inches, he was worth my attention.Slowly, this extreme standard of height waned, but I still felt awkward if he was near as tall as I was.“Would you ever consider dating a guy who was shorter than you?”It was a year after college, and the person asking me that was a guy I had just started casually dating.

“Would you ever consider dating a guy who was shorter than you?

”It was a year after college, and the person asking me that was a guy I had just started casually dating.

He actually was a couple inches taller than me, but the question caught me off guard. probably not,” I awkwardly admitted, embarrassed that I had gone with the two-inch wedges. ” She laughed at me and said, “Oh, I promise, your priorities are going to change.” “Not about that,” I replied. When Mark asked me to his dance months later, I not-so-politely declined—“Oh, Mark, you know we are just friends”—and instead accepted a later invitation from his significantly taller but significantly less charming friend.
