Why more and more women are 'marrying down' | Mail Online

Quote:
One woman who embodies the spirit of the '81 girls is Princess Anne's daughter Zara Phillips, who could be said to have 'married down' when she chose a husband without an aristocratic pedigree - England rugby player Mike Tindall.

I do have to agree, sadly, that Zara married down, even though they do appear happy (when he is sober).

Why all the focus on Zara? In fact, it was Princess Anne, Zara's mother, who very notably 'married down' when she married Mark Phillips back in the early 1970's. Then again with her second marriage, Anne has led the way.

Or maybe something else is meant by 'marrying down'?

To my mind, someone like Crown Princess Victoria married well, as did her father when he married Silvia. A good man (or woman) is worth everything no matter beginnings.

The article focused on research of women born from 1976 to 1981, I believe. Anne is, of course, no longer considered contemporary.

And, I do agree with you. However, I have to admit that I was extremely cautious when I was choosing a mate. I don't know how it would have worked out, long-term, as I was widowed after 6 years.

Royal approval for Una Healy and Ben Foden as Zara and Mike will watch the couple tie the knot
Quote:
Zara Phillips and her husband Mike Tindall will be special guests at the wedding of singer Una Healy and England rugby player Ben Foden next month. The Saturdays star and Ben, pictured together, right, have asked former England captain Tindall to be an usher at the ceremony, set to be at Holycross Abbey in Una’s hometown of Thurles, Co Tipperary, at the end of June.

I agree that Zara married down, but not because Tindall lacks an aristocratic pedigree.

I agree that "marrying down" is not a pedigree matter...it has to do with other troublesome matters which the "down" person may have.

I have thought that the current royals are often marrying commoners today to deliberately escape the genetic problems caused by centuries of marrying in their own families. Some people may marry commoners unconsciously, though, without thinking of this genetic problem. Maybe nature urges them on.

And I agree that Victoria marrying Daniel was definitely not marrying down. He has been her rock and her health coach and her loyal support. What a guy!

At some point in history, royal people "became" royal when they had not been so before. Usually it was from a victorious assault on land and people, not a very good way to start. Other times it was due to being "elected" by one's peers, not so bad but still working within the "family." I think the royals will correct their gene pool and then perhaps once again start marrying each other...if the world lasts that long in its present state.
I know nothing about Zara's Mike except that he has a broken nose which has not been adequately repaired, so can't comment on him.

Prince William married "up" by marrying the first woman with a university degree who will become Queen. (of course degrees are not the only criteria for "up", hardly!) In other words, they are more or less "equal", because he too is well educated.

Keeping the royal mother-in-law happy: Mike Tindall plants smacker on Princess Anne as they watch Zara at Blenheim Horse Trials
Quote:
Looks like someone's keeping in their mother-in-law's good books. Mike Tindall plants a great big smacker on Princess Anne as he accompanies her to watch wife Zara Philips compete at the Blenheim Horse trials. The Queen's sister could be forgiven for having her doubts about her burly, rugby-playing son-in-law whose past conduct could be considered anything but regal.

LOVE this picture of Anne and Mike.

LOL at referring to Princess Anne as the Queens sister.
