Re: do you want to marry someone smarter than you?

I get irritated b/c my SO is not as intellectual as I am, and doesn't have as much common sense.  I would like him to be smarter, but I enjoy that superior feeling of being smarter than he is.  At least I admit it!

I want someone equal, or slightly smarter.  I'm tired of dating the dummies.  I wonder if it's because I am stupid because everyone seems so much smarter when you dont really know them.  My last 3 boyfriends were a complete shock.  You think engineers/computer science majors would be smart, but these guys were all idiots.  And its not just that they're missing common sense, which they are, but they cant hold intellegent conversation about anything other than math.  You'd also think programmers would have a good grip on logic. Thats not usually the case in my experience...

So does anyone else constantly get duped into thinking they people they date are smarter, only to have the horrible realization 3 months in or so?

i want to marry someone who is of about the same level of smartness as me. Not too much smarter because he may try and look down upon me!!

i just keep thinking how i would be more disapointed if my kid were dumb than if he/she were not particularly good looking. 

seriously, who would you rather be the fruit of your loins: oprah or federline?  gates or britney? 

i bet if oprah had gates' child the kid would have an iq over 150 AND be good looking.  britney's kids are destined for public school.  hell, they might be riding the short bus if she keeps forgetting the car seat; not to mention receiving free lunches if federline makes any more albums.

Two things my mother told me about marriage:

1.  Marry a man who love you more than you love him.
2.  Don't marry a man who is smarter than you.
