Brainy women face handicap in marriage stakes: British survey

THE DOUBLE STANDARD: WORKING FOR YOU SINCE THE DAWN OF CIVILIZATION

LONDON (AFP) - A high IQ is a hindrance for women wanting to get married while it is an asset for men, according to a study by four British universities published in The Sunday Times newspaper.

WHO AM I TO ARGUE WITH ABERDEEN BISCUIT CONCERN AND TECHNICAL COLLEGE?

The study found the likelihood of marriage increased by 35 percent for boys for each 16-point increase in IQ. But for girls, there is a 40-percent drop for each 16-point rise, according to the survey by the universities of Aberdeen, Bristol, Edinburgh and Glasgow.

UH...WHY ARE THEY INCLUDING 10-YEAR-OLDS IN A STUDY ABOUT THE LIKELIHOOD OF MARRIAGE?

The study is based on the IQs of 900 men and women between their 10th and 40th birthdays.

SMART MEN LIKE STUPID WOMEN; SMART WOMEN NEEDLESSLY PICKY

"Women in their late 30s who have gone for careers after the first flush of university and who are among the brightest of their generation are finding that men are just not interesting enough," said psychologist and professor at Nottingham University Paul Brown in The Sunday Times.

LIKE MY HUSBAND, FOR EXAMPLE

Claire Rayner, writer and broadcaster, said in the article that intelligent men often prefered a less brainy partner.

CHAP, THE HOME, MUM, TUSH, PIFFLE, YAH BOO, UP THE ENGLISH BOYS, AT 'EM

"A chap with a high IQ is going to get a demanding job that is going to take up a lot of his energy and time. In many ways he wants a woman who is an old-fashioned wife and looks after the home, a copy of his mum in a way."
