4. Why did Tori Marry Zach?
People are visual creatures, so a lot of people are attracted to outer physical appearances. And if one person chooses someone with lower physical traits, people start questioning why they chose him/her. Well, the same thing happened to Tori when she tied the knot with Zach.
Well, coming to the point, her husband is shorter than her, and most people criticized her for marrying him. Simply, she has one thing to say to everyone who thinks physical appearance is important; “Love people because of their minds. Not their bodies.”
Roloff revealed in a statement in one of her Instagram posts on Jan 29, 2018,
So I was a wandering target… as I do… when I heard a man say to his wife, “well, at least I’m taller than you.” And the wife responded with, “well, I would hope so.” Some of us just have the idea of beauty and love so backward. It doesn’t come from outward appearances but rather from inner beauty. I don’t love Zach because of how he looks (although he is quite handsome if I do say so myself) but rather what things weigh on his heart. It doesn’t matter to me that I’m taller than my husband. Honestly, it gives me an excuse to never wear heels. Ever. I can’t imagine my life if I had never given my husband a chance because he was shorter than me. Love people because of their minds. Not their bodies.Tori Roloff on why she married Zach.
Well, now we know why she wedlock with Zach, right?
