Men Should Marry This Kind of Woman If They Want to Live Longer


What do you look for in a potential partner? Most ladies will say, caring, listening, good looking, and romantic, while most men will be very sexual in their choices, and include cooking, respectful as supplements.

Well, intelligence should be your top priority when looking for a woman

Well, we all know that marriage is not easy, Americans tell us that everyday, with the high numbers of divorces, and African countries tell us with the high number of domestic violence against women.

Men, if the traits you are searching for are those above, you might have to rethink that.

It turns out that if you want to live a long life, 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.

I totally agree.

Stay Healthy, Stay Wise

Brainy babes may be better for you than beautiful ones. Marrying a smart woman helps fight Alzheimer's disease because it keeps your brain active, experts say.

Long Story

Men with smart wives live longer, happier lives and are less likely to suffer from Alzheimer's disease and dementia, mental health experts claim.

Bright people keep their partners intellectually stimulated, which helps prevent symptoms of the condition such as memory loss.

So just in case you're not already thinking past 'HOT', we'll have the professor leading the study spell it out for you: "The thing a boy is never told he needs to do if he wants to live a longer life – but what he should do – is marry an intelligent woman," University of Aberdeen professor Lawrence Whalley said at a conference on dementia in Oxford England last week.

Wives who inspire their husbands to think – and challenge them with good conversation – help serve as a “buffer” against dementia by keeping their brains active, the mental health professor said, according to TV3. “There is no better buffer than intelligence,” Whalley said.

Researchers studied the health of identical twins and found that a man's environment, including the woman they marry, plays a role in whether they develop dementia, Whalley said.

Guys who showed physical signs of dementia after a brain scan but didn’t suffer from symptoms were usually "highly intelligent," he said, citing studies.

But some factors make men more likely to suffer from the condition, such as the death of a family member early in life, researchers said.

Children without siblings who lose a family member early in life are more likely to suffer from dementia 80 years later, Whalley said.

"Studies have shown that the death of a mother before the age of five is a very important risk factor for dementia in later life. But positive parenting as a child, a longer time in education and a good childhood environment all have a huge buffering effect against dementia 70 or 80 years later,” he said.

Brain-boosting activities such as crossword puzzles, reading and visiting museums can help to reduce a person's risk of developing the condition, according to past studies.

But a partner who “intrigues” could be even more important, Whalley said at the conference , titled "Dementia: How Can We Protect Ourselves?”

Dementia affects nearly 35 million people worldwide, with 7.7 million new cases each year.

Think of your ideal wife: are brains at the top of your list when you name her best qualities? Perhaps they should be.

New research suggests that having a brainy bride may extend your life and ward off dementia. During a talk called Dementia: How Can We Protect Ourselves?, Professor Lawrence Whalley, emeritus professor of mental health in the College of Medicine and Life Sciences at the University of Aberdeen, said: ‘The thing a boy is never told he needs to do if he wants to live a longer life – but what he should do – is marry an intelligent woman.  There is no better buffer (to dementia) than intelligence.”

This research study, done by the University of Aberdeen, examined the health of identical twins and found that having an intelligent wife was an important factor in protecting against degenerative disease.

They Determined That Men Who Choose To Marry Smart Women Live Longer And Happier Lives, And Are Less Likely To Suffer From Alzheimer’s Disease And Dementia.

Past research has found that intellectually challenging games such as crossword puzzles can help to ward off dementia and Alzheimer’s by stimulating the brain, so it would make sense that a wife who engages and challenges her husband’s mental faculties could benefit him in the same way.

Shockingly, some men who were married to these clever women even showed physical signs of dementia in a brain scan, but didn’t suffer from any symptoms of the disease.  In fact, they were determined to be “highly intelligent” and fully functional.

Encouraging Both Men And Women To Value A Female’s Brains Over Her Beauty Is A Tricky Business.

This has long been an important feminist issue, and one that is well understood by most people. Girls who grow up taking pride in their intelligence are more empowered and independent. Boys who share this mindset have better relationships with women and create a more supportive world for their wives and daughters.

However, this research suggests that a man choosing to value intelligence when choosing his wife may benefit his physical and mental heath, as well as society.
