Re: Why do men base someone's worth off of their appearance? The prom queen syndrome
If my memory serves me right, the "Prom Queen" is elected among peers.
It takes more than her looks to gain respect, her character must be admirable.
Whether your husband casted his vote in her name or not, he may very well have considered you as his wife the better in character and looks, yet, his opinion of you or her isn't enough to change her title. She is liked most by her peers, and married a man who is liked least by his peers.
