Wife smarter than husband?

Written by Jonathan Tan

Continued from page 1

Whilerepparttar husband is advancing himself vocationally, or rising in his company,repparttar 105646 wife busies herself getting up church suppers and organizing flower shows which consume her time and energy, but do not show up in eitherrepparttar 105647 pay check or her vocational standing.

Yet such advantages are not always enough to keeprepparttar 105648 husband ahead. Ifrepparttar 105649 difference in ability is marked, it speedily becomes known.

Such a situation may be concealed by a polite little conspiracy to maintainrepparttar 105650 fiction of male superiority, but everyone knows to whom to go, to get things done. In our day this fiction is becoming more difficult to maintain.

More and more wives are going back to work as soon as their children are old enough to be left by themselves, and are getting real money and recognition.

In some instances,repparttar 105651 wife will outstrip her husband. The problem often becomes a real issue atrepparttar 105652 time when her income exceeds his.

My feeling is thatrepparttar 105653 soundest marriages are those in which husband and wife are on aboutrepparttar 105654 same level of intelligence. We may think thatrepparttar 105655 problem will be serious, only ifrepparttar 105656 girl is markedly superior, but this is by no means necessarily true. The girl who marries a man who is intellectually far superior may face problems quite as serious. She will be safer if she chooses a man more nearly on her own level, so that throughrepparttar 105657 yearsrepparttar 105658 relationship can most easily be maintained.

There is just as much chance thatrepparttar 105659 wife will be superior torepparttar 105660 husband, asrepparttar 105661 other way around. All who marry should face this fact. Actually there is no more justification for a man feeling embarrassed because his wife is superior, than there is for a wife to feel embarrassed because her husband excels her.

In any case, character and personality are far more important, provided each ofrepparttar 105662 couple is intelligent enough to do a good job.

The fermented drink supposedly increased virility and fertility and, consequently,repparttar 105647 first month of marriage was referred to asrepparttar 105648 honeymoon.
