Men Who Marry Smart Women Live Longer

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 health, as well as society.

  1. I take care of four years of suffering from dementia, day and night and know more about the manifestations of these patients.
    As discoveries and stories about the longevity of men who have wives smart, it seems a joke.
    Arguments found, are puerile and insubstantial.

    1. HOW TO GET YOUR DIVORCE EX HUSBAND & WIFE BACK BEFORE XMAS

      I want to really use this medium to thank powerful Dr. Ugo wonders for helping me get my broken home back after my husband of 18 years left me for another lady. Two months ago my Husband filed for a divorce through his lawyer when we had no issues at all. i was surprised because our family was a very happy one with three beautiful kids that even neighbors were jealous of us. i never knew a girl he met at the mall cast a spell on him so he will love her alone and forget about his family. i tried all ways to reach him and make peace ordinarily but i could not because the potency of the spell was so high on him that he could not even get himself. a friend of mine who felt pity for me introduced me to Dr. Ugo through his email ( [email protected] ) so i contacted Dr. Ugo and told him all about my marital problem. He assured me that he will help me and that my husband will be back to me in 24 hours, i trusted him because he had worked for my friend who wont stop testifying about him. To my greatest surprise, after 24 hours of contacting Dr. Ugo, my husband called me to start begging and immediately came back to us and now we are happy family again. i cant stop thanking Dr. Ugo wonders and i advice anyone out there with any relationship or marriage problem to contact him immediately for help through his email [email protected] or call his mobile

  2. 1) Who's doing the research on what kind of men make heterosexual women live longer?

    2) This article starts with the question "Think of your ideal wife." Ok, this deserves all caps...I AM SO BLOODY TIRED OF PROGRESSIVE MEN THINKING THEY ARE PROGRESSIVE WHEN THEY USE LANGUAGE THAT ASSUMES THAT THEIR ENTIRE AUDIENCE IS MADE UP OF HETEROSEXUAL MALES.

    1. Maybe he was addressing male readers more, the world does not need to revolve around women or be neutral. Maybe it's because it was written by a man so it's from a male perspective...but heck why should one be understanding and try to see things from another perspective when you can "all caps" people just because you found a flaw in their way of being. A little more understanding and a lot less rage can take you a long way.

    2. The article is a generalization. Wife is a role. Not a gender. A biological male could also be a wife in a relationship with another man.

  3. Well the same would apply to women. Women who's spouses keep challenging them intellectually should show similar results. So while the research seems to state something that seems almost obvious once you think about it, it forgets 1 critical point. Having an intelligent wife is not enough, having intelligent conversations and intellectually sparring with her is important. If your partner is highly intelligent but only uses their intelligence in office while the only thing you two speak of are groceries, kids, and laundry, then intelligence really doesnt count.

    1. In my experience, intelligence can not be switched off at will, it works whether it is home or office.

  9. It was too late for me to realize that my six-year-old marriage was only an episode, I feel that I try every time to convince my husband to love, commit and respect me as the queen of his heart but time worsened everything, he never changes to becoming the man I once fell in love with despite my humanly efforts.
    I was encouraged to share this review eight month after my husband’s loyalty was restored by a man I call my spiritual father; dr. wakina {[email protected]}. My spiritual father practically made our hearts unbreakable and our love 10 times stronger. We have been enjoying the benefits of his spell on us.
    Hope you are encouraged never to let go after reading this review? Note that there is hope and love on the other side only if you begin now to fight for the future. Thanks for your time.
