We all have a wish list when it comes to who we want for a partner and co-parent of our prospective children. Most would agree that intelligence is a desirable quality. New findings, however, suggest that it is possibly crucial.
The data for the study was culled from input generated by about 200,000 military Finnish personnel. Their ages ranged from 18-45. The men’s intelligence was evaluated and they were followed, most from a single status, through their following marital years. A definite correlation over time appeared between intelligence and marital glue. Within each age group the number of men getting and staying married rose with their levels of intelligence as evaluated by the standardized testing.
