    Smart women need to marry down to become mothers because there aren't enough smart men

    Intelligent women should consider marrying less clever men if they want to start a family, according to researchers.

    There are simply not enough brainy men to go round – so women may need to widen their search, warned the author of a report that found a growing number of professional women were freezing their eggs because they couldn’t find ‘Mr Right’.

    ‘There are fewer educated men in the world for educated women to partner with,’ said Marcia Inhorn, professor of anthropology at Yale University.
    ‘So if women want to find a partner with whom they can have children, they need a more expansive notion of who is Mr Right. . . "
    Smart women need to marry down to become mothers, researchers warn* | Daily Mail Online

    Commenters: "There are - but they’re too smart to want to get married...."
    "More like “women buried in student loan debt for worthless degrees need to marry somebody who wasn’t dumb enough to bury themselves in student loan debt for a worthless degree to pay off their student loans for them.”
    "Maybe the smart men are smart enough to recognize a losing proposition when they see one."

    "What is the incentive for men to get married? Feminism is a cancer in every way. Women today (if they have been "properly educated") have incorrect thinking on almost every topic. Massive brainwashing which almost guarantees that they will be unhappy victims in life. I think that's the whole purpose of making women "properly educated".


    Plenty of smart men out there. That is why you can’t find them. They are smart."

    Looks like a not so scientific attempt to get these college educated honeys off the street. I suppose the author was trying to do good. The commenters were better though.




    I don't think these college women are really looking for smart guys. They like bad boys and money, just like their dumber sisters. They zero in on the college guy cause he makes more money, not cause their attracted to his brains.

    Women go to college not for an education, but because they want to stay in school. The social environment, the classes, the teachers, the gossip about the teachers, the activities, even the assignments - for which there is no real-world consequences if you screw them up. And, of course, the sex. They don't want to get their own housing, make a living, grow up. They want to stay in school forever.

    And the loan companies are perfectly happy to help them do it.

    What a crock. Let me translate:

    When they say 'Smart men' they actually mean 'Rich men'.

    Here's your proof:
    Professor Inhorn found women often desired men from a higher socio-economic level.
    A man can be smart, and NOT be rich. Just because you get a college education, doesnt mean you have the motivation to get a good paying job. Some people are happier with lower paying jobs as there is less stress. Some people wont relocate for more money because they like where they live. There is also the guys who are not materialistic and dont really care that much about money in the first place {you cant take it with you when you die}.

    I like how women fuck up thousands of years of evolution and expect it to work in their favor, just to have it thrown right back in their stupid faces.

    Exactly !

    Your intellect has no way to monetize itself in this system .

    If you are not born in riches the maximum you can achieve is some middle management position and have no life .

    Anything that is higher stays in the family .

    Nobody in his right mind would let a stranger in to a decision making position . I certainly wouldnt .


    Just because you work at some company doesnt mean you know what is up .

    fair point..... this thing we call "civilization" is a rather recent invention (only done in the last five or six thousand years..).... but if women do want someone to blame for men being like they are.. all they got to do is ask Mother Nature herself....
    men are the product of nearly 750 thousand years of cultural and environmental conditioning... and that cant be undone overnight...

    As Chuckhed pointed out hypergamy isn't about women marrying intelligent men they are looking for money the article is severely off course and skewed.

    You didn't see them all queuing up for Nikola Tesla

    ^ This.

    It is also only one side of the trap.
    Lets say blue piller finds a Unicorn that has 100K in student loans and hur degree is good enough to get hur a job at Starbucks.

    They get hitched.
    These aren't exact numbers so if some of the divorced guys wanna chime in please do.

    1. A minimum of 5K for a wedding ring (the useless rock) for hur and whatever a simple gold ring costs for him.
    2. On average a wedding is 30K
    3. Say, I do, and that is an extra 100k in student loans that you are on the hook for. PLUS hur CC balance. Lets call that 30K
    4. Don't forget the honeymoon. We will call that 5K.
    5. Princess just has to have a new car (seen this a couple of months ago). We will call this 30K
    6. Punkin' has to have a new house so she can fill it up with useless shit.
    7. And now the kids come (might have to switch 6 and 7 here).

    Then after people that hate you, make you miserable for years in your own home, you get hauled into family court.

    People are really surprised when places like GYOW show up?

    The main reason why they can't find enough smart men to marry, is because there are too many smart men...

    I remember a certain first date I once had where she blatantly told be she would take nothing less than a $10,000 ring. This was back in 1993.

    By the time these women want to have a family, they are no longer a viable possibility for 90+ % of men. If you have the money, position, status you are going to look for a 20 something good looking and willing. NOT a 40 something hit the wall hard as nails bitch.

    actually.. you can try.. since our "evolution" appears to have "stalled" over the last thousand years and is in dire need of a "push"..

    Re: Smart women need to marry down to become mothers because there aren't enough smart men

    It's not like this is any big secret, but women don't want to marry down financially. You can check statistics, read an article like this, or you can just ask one. They all tell you the same thing. Women don't really have any shame about it, and they aren't really trying to keep it a secret. They want to marry a man who makes more than they do. (And most preferably a man who makes more than the husbands of all their friends)

    So be it. It isn't as if this is news to any man over the age of 13 anyway.

    What I find personally entertaining is that if you ask individual women (who admit wanting to marry up financially) if they should be paid the same money as men, essentially every single one of them will answer with an emphatic "YES!!" before you can even get the question out of your mouth. For me, that's when the entertaining part of the conversation begins. It's the point where I like to calmly point out that it's mathematically impossible for women to make the same money as men, and simultaneously marry men who make more than they do.

    Now frequently when I've done this, I have tended to lose them with the phrase "mathematically impossible". It's the point where I see the confused, blank stare start to appear. So I sometimes have to simplify it for them: Men either make more than women do, or we make the same. We can't simultaneously do both.

    It kind of surprises me that I have never seen this simple, obvious detail pointed out anywhere. But the reaction I get when I point it out to women is really entertaining for me. If you are ever in a conversation with a woman about equality/feminism/wage gap etc, and you want to lock them up and make them start to stutter and stammer, point out to them that a good man doesn't expect to come into a marriage with nothing to offer. (They wont protest this because it feeds their ego and confirms what they already believe, which is that they are owed something for being women).

    Then, drop the logic bomb: Men know that to be a good man, WE MUST MAINTAIN THAT WAGE GAP, BECAUSE THE WOMEN WE HOPE TO MARRY WILL DEMAND IT!!!

    Watch the hamster spin...

    Re: Smart women need to marry down to become mothers because there aren't enough smart men

    Intelligent women need to GET MARRIED to become a mother. At this point it doesn't matter if they marry down or not (as if they could; every fat, lazy, stupid girl thinks she is better than all the men she meets) they just need to get married. Over half of children are born out of wedlock. Statistically the children perform worse on every imaginable metric of success, and so do the single mothers. They relegate themselves and their children to a life of poverty and destroy any chance they had of locking down any halfway decent man.

    I guarantee, you will see plenty of articles for women bemoaning the "stupidity" of men, but you'll never see an honest treatment of statistics and the consequences of their life choices. And since they will never research and discover these things on their own, the downward trend will continue. Expect a lot more unhappy (and unmarried) poor single mothers in the future.

    Re: Smart women need to marry down to become mothers because there aren't enough smart men

    I reject the whole assumption that smart and intelligent = educated (schooled) = moneyed. Do you know people who learned to fix (and build) everything around the house? You may be one of them. Did they go to a university to get a degree in handymanship? No, they taught themselves. Is not that cleverness? Yet, these women would find these men “less brainy”. Because they have less money, no degrees, and they did not start Jack-of-All-Trades Ltd.

    Besides, a woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle. What, they still need a man(’s sperm) to start a family (= mother + child)? They still haven’t found a way to drop this dependency? Not so smart and intelligent, huh?
