Do these celeb couples match up, lookswise? VOTE!

A recent study showed that partners who match up equally in the looks department tend to make a relationship work better. We take a look at a few celeb couples and ask readers to take tell us whether they're well-paired, appearance-wise!

Your best hope of lasting romance is to find a partner just like you instead of being with someone who is out of your league, according to a new research.

The study suggests that fairytales may be full of mismatched couples -- like Beauty And The Beast -- but new research suggests they are just that: fairy tales.

The study by the University of California shows that when looking for a mate, we select partners whose social desirability approximately matches our own, reports the Daily Mail.

Most strikingly, people who were the least attractive opted for similarly unattractive mates.

"It's called assortative mating," the paper quoted Dr George Fieldman, a London-based cognitive behavioural therapist, as saying.

"By and large, people don't mate randomly. They choose people who they perceive, rightly or wrongly, have things in common with them."

And the most important part of this is looks.

"Similarity is the general rule. How many young women really have sugar daddies?" said the study's author, psychologist Robin Russell.

The happily ever after stories, he reckons, lie in couples whose union defies simple analysis: the clever marrying the stupid, the wealthy hitching up with the poverty-stricken and beauties settling for the beasts.

Now, in light of this information, we're asking you to rate the attraction factor of celebrity couples. Vote on every page and tell us which partners you think look great together!
