According to a team from the Geneva School of Business a bride should be five years younger than her groom, should come from the same cultural background, and be the more intelligent of the pair if couples are to have a successful marriage. Here is an excerpt from the Telegraph:
The academic study, published in the European Journal of Operational Research looked at 1,074 couples aged between 19 and 75 years, to find which social factors were most important to a long and happy relationship.
Besides the man being five years older than his bride, and that his bride should share the same heritage, they concluded that a wife should be at least 27 per cent more intelligent than her husband. She should also hold a degree, while he should not.
Perhaps unsurprisingly, the academics found that marrying a divorcee reduced the chance of wedded bliss.
Nguyen Vi Cao, who led the research, promised: “If people follow these guidelines in choosing their partners they can increase their chances of a happy, long marriage by up to 20 per cent.”
Relationship experts thought there might be something in the research.
Now lets look at the photograph and you tell me if any of the statistics matter if you greet your husband everyday like that? Not to say that there aren’t guys out there that do like a woman with a brain but unfortunately most of you let your dicks do the leading and deciding for you. As long as you keep your whistle wet you can overlook the fact that she’s not very bright or can’t cook very well or greet you with a clean home.
