Today women tend to have a higher education almost in the same level with man. So tell me my fellow women will you marry to men who have lower education than yours?. I don't mean to be rude just curios. In marriage usually men have higher or the same education with the woman. Share please

When my husband and I met, I was working for my high school diploma (at sixteen), but he had barely gotten his GED (and at the time, he was twenty-one). Regardless, the man is one of the smartest people I know. He has the ability to think things through and usually picks a side on the opposite of the majority...something I highly, highly respect. I married him because I love everything about him, and he IS smart. I know he had issues in school and it's the reason he dropped out. I, myself, was expelled in middle school despite being a perfect student (never had a detention, never had less than a B+) because I'd threatened some kids who made my life a living hell for a few months in my eighth grade year. Both of us had been loners; the difference between us was that I came back to school and fought through high school, he simply never came back. Despite the fact that he never graduated but he'd gotten his GED, he had potential. So a few years after we first got engaged, I encouraged him to enroll in an online college. He's now halfway through with earning his degree. To me, degrees or certifications mean nothing. If you can't carry on an intelligent and decent conversation, you aren't educated in the sense that I need someone to be. I need to be able to SHARE knowledge, yet many intelligent people are very quiet. My husband's always been super smart, and a degree next to his name really means nothing to me. But at least he'll have the confidence that comes with it.

I would. I don't think it's very likely to happen, but if I fall in love with someone I wouldn't care what they did or what they look like or whether they've been to college. I think that people who only date people in their small circle are going to end up unhappy. Who knows? Your Mr. or Ms. Right could be a sanitation worker or a rocket scientist, you never know. Perhaps the universe has them waiting just for you and your defying the order of things by not meeting them because you think they are out of your league in one way or another.

His level of education does not bother me, but his intelligence does. I want a man who can keep up with me. Education does not necessarily translate to intelligence. If I make that a qualification to marry someone these days, I would have slim pickings. No offense nangisha, but there are more women who pursue higher studies than men. The question really is, would you marry a man who earns considerably less than you? That's a whole different ball game to me.

I don't mind. Why? because higher education doesn't guarantee us to have a good living and good characters. They depends on the quality of the persons themselves.

The guy I'm with right now has a lower education level than me. Although our relationship isn't there yet, if it does come to marriage, I know that his education level wouldn't keep me from marrying him. I think it's interesting to know if this would bother any men, would men feel like their masculinity is being threatened if their wife is more educated than they are?
