Men Who Marry Smart Women Live Longer

Men Who Marry Smart Women Live Longer
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.
