    Curious Eye
In summary, there is no known research on marriages lasting longer among couples with beautiful eyes. However, this preference for attractive eyes may be rooted in our evolutionary history, where good eyesight was crucial for survival and reproductive success. As a result, people may be naturally drawn to eyes that appear healthy and functional.

People are often attracted to eyes; however, do eyes diminish in beauty over time, like other physical attributes? If not, do marriages last longer among couples who both have, according to culture, beautiful eyes?

I do not know of any research about marriages holding longer when the couple has nicer eyes.

But I guess the reason for this is our evolutionary history. Firstly many diseases will have some visible effect on the eyes, so nice eyes signal health. Secondly vision is an incredibly important sense for humans so a partner with good sight gave much higher chances of raising children than one with bad sight (I mean in evolutionary history long ago, not nowadays). Therefore we may all have inherited a preference for anything that signals good sight, which is probably what we nowadays call "beautiful eyes".

There is no definitive answer to this question as beauty is subjective and can vary greatly from person to person. Some may argue that eyes do not diminish in beauty over time, as they are often seen as a window to the soul and can convey emotions and depth regardless of age. Others may argue that physical attributes, including eyes, can change with age and may not hold the same level of attractiveness as they did in youth.

As for the impact of having "beautiful" eyes on the longevity of a marriage, it is difficult to determine as there are many factors that contribute to the success of a marriage. While physical attraction may play a role in the initial stages of a relationship, it is not the sole determining factor for a lasting and fulfilling marriage. Ultimately, a strong and healthy relationship is built on a foundation of mutual respect, trust, and communication, rather than solely on physical attributes.
 

Related to Curious - a question concerning the eye.

What is the structure of the eye?

The eye is made up of several parts including the cornea, iris, pupil, lens, retina, and optic nerve. The cornea is the transparent outer layer that focuses light into the eye. The iris is the colored part of the eye that controls the size of the pupil. The pupil is the opening in the center of the iris that allows light to enter the eye. The lens is a flexible structure that helps to focus light onto the retina. The retina is a layer of tissue that contains photoreceptor cells and converts light into electrical signals. The optic nerve carries these signals to the brain for processing.

How does the eye work?

The eye works by using a combination of light, lenses, and photoreceptor cells to create visual images. Light enters the eye through the cornea and pupil, and is then focused by the lens onto the retina. The retina contains two types of photoreceptor cells, rods and cones, which convert light into electrical signals. These signals are then sent to the brain via the optic nerve, where they are processed into visual images.

What is the function of the eye?

The main function of the eye is to allow us to see and perceive the world around us. The cornea and lens focus light onto the retina, which then converts the light into electrical signals that are sent to the brain. The brain then interprets these signals to create visual images that we can understand and make sense of.

What is the difference between nearsightedness and farsightedness?

Nearsightedness, also known as myopia, is a condition in which a person can see objects clearly up close, but objects in the distance appear blurry. This is caused by the eyeball being too long, which causes light to focus in front of the retina instead of directly on it. In contrast, farsightedness, also known as hyperopia, is a condition in which a person can see objects clearly in the distance, but objects up close appear blurry. This is caused by the eyeball being too short, which causes light to focus behind the retina.

Can the eye be affected by diseases or disorders?

Yes, the eye can be affected by various diseases and disorders such as cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, and diabetic retinopathy. These conditions can affect different parts of the eye, including the cornea, lens, retina, and optic nerve, and can lead to vision loss if left untreated. It is important to have regular eye exams to detect and treat any potential issues with the eyes.
