I know people select their partners or something of that nature. You also various cultures (former and current) that select the spouses of their children. Would that be consider selective breeding in away the couple is being chosen and then will have children with each other.

The Chinese have been claimed to do this to breed super athletes. The story of Yao Ming, 7'6 basketball player is one such example where his mother and father were "matched" for breeding. People do it with plants all the time to breed the best phenotype.

This reminds me of an article a few years ago saying that humans are splitting into two species.
One tall, rich and good looking, the other short, fat and poor.

selective breeding?
yah, i'd say this happens all the time... ON FARMS!
for horses, cows etc. it only makes sense to breed the best traits, as it is a lot of effort and resposibility to raise colts / calfs to mature productive livestock.
humans? i personaly do not see this happening, standards these days seem to be pretty low.
men are usually picked for their 'financial prowress', i.e. the biggest cheats and best liars are the ones most likely to make it in this society of useless eaters.
i think many men pick the women they do because they want a like minded 'partner in crime'.

Selective breeding. I was involved in that. My dad had over a hundred chinchillas.

I prefer half breeds as they come with less problems than purebreds.
Worrying about my dogs health problems is one headache I don't want.
And the idea of having to put one down mid life due to bad bloodlines is unacceptable.

You bring up a goof point here. Pure breeds are all inbreds, like close cousins, or siblings, having children together.

Which is where half breeds being better animals comes from.

They don't suffer from the many inherent chronic conditions, associated with pure breeds, and are also known to have much better personalities and are much smarter over all.
