Why Do Couples from The Bachelorette Do So Much Better Than Those from The Bachelor?

 

In my recent blog post, A Message for The Bachelorette, Emily Maynard: Don’t Follow Your Heart, I talked about the importance of leading your heart instead.

And just today, I read comments from Author Steven D. Levitt who asks, “Why Do the Couples From The Bachelorette Do So Much Better Than Those From The Bachelor?”

He says, “Of the sixteen The Bachelor shows, only four relationships from the show lasted at least a year.  Only two couples are still together.  In contrast, five of the seven The Bachelorette seasons led to relationships that lasted at least a year. (Although only two of the couples are still together.)”

So, why do you think there is a difference? Does this give us any insight as to what men and women look for in a person and in a relationship? Please share your comments with me.
