In dating, there are tons of social norms that are common to see in a couple. For example -- the man is usually the protector, he is usually bigger in every way, and the women is relatively smaller. Despite the fact that that's a tad sexist, the world is pretty okay with it because that's just the way it's always been. Even in 2016, it's hard not to be thrown off by a woman who's bigger than her male counterpart.
Society has made it seem weird for men date women that are taller than them. In most cases, the man is at least an inch or two taller than his spouse. However, sometimes you'll see men with women that tower above them. As odd as it is to try and accept, a man dating a woman taller than him really isn't all that rare, especially in Hollywood, where models are tall and actors are short. Here are 15 male celebrities who have no problem dating taller women.

1 Chrissy Teigen & John Legend
One of social media's favorite stars, Chrissy Teigen and musician John Legend, met on the set of one of his music videos in 2007. Teigen has definitely become more famous after marrying Legend, but she has no problem holding her own in the public eye. She's known for her social media presence and for being one of the hosts of Lip Sync Battle, even though her main career is as a model and an author. After meeting, Teigen admitted to US Weekly that her and Legend hooked up, but right after he had to go on tour. Not wanting to push into anything, she kind of just let Legend be Legend without questioning what they were. Legend also admits that it wasn't love at first sight because he's "more cautious" than that. However, the couple married in 2013 even though they both never thought they were the traditional type. Given that Legend's hit song "All Of Me" is about Teigen, and that they now have a daughter together, it seems that the couple has fallen quite in love with each other. Teigen is a tad taller than Legend - she's 5'10" and he's 5'9".
