Men Who Marry Smart Women Live Longer

in Health January 27, 2017

When thinking about who you want to spend your life with do you consider their brains? If you don’t then maybe you should!

New research has brought about the idea that having a brainy lady by your side might extend your life and help protect you from dementia. Professor Lawrence Whalley from the University of Aberdeen mentioned that there is no better buffer to dementia than intelligence during a talk called ‘Dementia: How Can We Protect Ourselves?’ 

Research done at his University has examined the health of identical twins. They found that when protecting one’s self from degenerative diseases having a smart wife was important. Researchers were able to come to the conclusion that men who choose to marry smart women live longer and happier lives. These men are less likely to suffer from things like dementia and Alzheimer’s.

It has been found in the past that challenging games like crossword puzzles and sudoku can help ward off dementia as well. This is because it stimulates the brain so it does make sense that a wife who stimulates the brain as well can help. She will engage and challenge her husband and in doing so benefit his health. The value of a woman’s brain is worth far more than her beauty. If you have a smart woman in your life do not take her for granted you may be getting more than you’d think by having her in your life.
