According to a new Australian study, men are happier when they are married to smart women.

"Every extra year of education a wife has under her belt significantly increases the chances her husband will report being highly satisfied with life."

If you want to make your husband happy, go back to school. Seems simple enough. (As if there's not enough on our plates to begin with.)

On the flip side, according to the study, women don't seem to care how educated their husbands are.

Sound off - what do you think about these findings?

  • Frankly, I couldn't see myself with a boy-toy who didn't have any gray matter between the ears any more than I could see any sane, intelligent male with nothing but tits and ass (see Applause) and nothing inside the head. I mean, I know a lot of men think with the little head and not the big one, but in most that I know, unless they're totally narcasistic, they WANT someone to talk to and who can talk INTELLIGENTLY.
    As KatieK said, DUH!!!!!

  • Well, duh. I can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan-- and then have a discussion about the formation of neo-liberal economics in periphery economies. Who could beat that??
