How Marrying A Smart Woman Makes You Live Longer


It’s always interesting to imagine what men picture as their ideal wife. Does her intelligence always rank among the most desirable qualities?

Well, it turns out that it should. Bright Side learned something completely unexpected but totally fascinating about the wonder known as the female brain, and we just had to share it with you.


It’s no secret that having a powerful intellect is a highly valued personal quality.

New research shows that when this quality is present in a woman, it can actually help increase her partner’s life expectancy, as well as prevent dementia. In a test in which the health of identical twins was examined, it was found that a person’s surroundings have a major effect on their intellectual abilities.

Researchers determined that men who marry intelligent women live longer and are happier and more rarely suffer from diseases like Alzheimer’s or dementia.

So it’s logical to assume that a partner who constantly stimulates your intellect can have a positive effect on your cognitive abilities.

Unbelievably, some men who were married to highly intelligent women turned out to have physically ’weak’ brains when scanned.

But they didn’t suffer from any symptoms of poor mental health. They were completely confident in their own mental abilities and competence.

Girls who are proud of their intelligence grow up to be more responsible and independent.

Boys who share this characteristic also establish healthier relationships with women and create a more pleasant family atmosphere for their wives and children.

Today we are living in a world where physical beauty is increasingly more valued than intellect.

But this research shows that a man who cares about the intelligence of his partner will be better placed to look after his physical and psychological health. And this can have a positive effect on society as a whole.
