I suppose intellectually I know the answer to this question, but emotionally I don't. Eve must have been extremely beautiful since everything was perfect before the fall.
In our society, beautiful women often make more money than less beautiful because they get paid for their beauty through entertainment and modeling and such. According to articles I read, pretty women are more apt to be hired in just about every line of work. (And get paid more)
Obviously, guys revere the pretty women and don't even give a plain woman a second glance.
God made us to want to be married, I believe. So why did he make some of us to be less desirable in the way we look? Are beautiful women more deserving even in God's eyes?
When I was younger, I was attractive enough to turn heads, but certainly never drop dead gorgeous, or pretty enough that I particularly stood out in a crowd. And though while plenty of males found me attractive, I never felt attractive enough. You know, the magazines and media tell you all about all the flaws you didn't know you had 'til they pointed it out to you.
I remember being 15 reading an ad in a women's magazine. 'Do you have cellulite?' I went straight to the mirror and started examining myself closely. Horrified, I went to my mom and exclaimed, 'I have cellulite!' As though it was some horrid disease. I'd never heard of it before that ad. (Of course, my mom thought it, and I , was ridiculous).
Now I'm 48 and married. I've gained weight and will never look like Demi Moore or Jennifer Anniston or Angelina Jolie.
I've read so many ugly comments under news articles geared toward women who are not so pretty.
Why did God make some of us less than pretty? Of course, I know it goes back to sin. But does that mean somehow the beautiful women are less sinful than the plain?
Forgive me for this silly post, but I'm at a bad place in my life right now, and sometimes it really does bother me how society treats women like they are less valuable if they don't look like beauty queens.
