What do men look for in a potential partner?
the top three desirable traits are reliability, warmth and fairness.
Guys, those are all fantastic, important traits but we might want to re-jig that priority list a little bit in light of some new information.
It turns out that if you want to live long, you should marry a woman who possesses intelligence.
That conclusion was reached by experts at the University of Aberdeen who found that men with intelligent wives were far less likely to suffer from degenerative conditions like Alzheimer’s disease, the 6th leading cause of death in the U.S.
Many of the men studied even had signs of brain damage that were visible through MRI scans. But the ones who married highly intelligent women didn’t suffer any symptoms.
Professor Lawrence Whalley, professor of mental health at the University of Aberdeen, said:
“If you look at the kind of people who should have dementia but don’t show symptoms, they are highly intelligent people in high powered jobs. They also have a lot of money in the bank.”
