Husbands and wives should have the same educational level.

People marry for many reasons and not just love. But in the long run, love for each other will develop if there is patience and respect. But there are people who don't mind marrying the exact opposite of their personality as long as love between them exist. Do you think it's ideal to marry someone who have attained lesser educational degree than you have? How about you, would you mind marrying someone who just didn't reach college degree? Why or Why not?

For me, educational attainment has nothing to do with being in love.Love comes naturally, it doesn't tell one to marry the other person because he has earned a degree but it tells one to marry another because that special someone completes him as a person. If one marries because the other person is a degree holder, then he is not marrying the person but his educational attainment. I wouldn't mind marrying someone even if he has not finished college as long as I love him & vice versa because what matters most is the love between us.

I think it has some importance, but nothing critical. The most important thing for a couple is mutual understanding and love. Education may help them, but I see it helps more to them as individual rather than as a couple. In the first place, how do they know each other is important, and here I guess education makes the difference. When you first meet a girls/boy/whatever you like you look at him as a whole, and if you feel she's "inferior" you may not be attracted, so nothing more happens.

It all depands on the people some poeple like spouses that are dumb for they own reasons of insequeties, but a marrage would go much better in my opinion if both spousese have the same education so more conversation would get started and both would look at each other the same.

Traditionally, the husband should have a better or the same education level as his wife. For me, both of the husband and wife should have about the same educational level so that, they can communicate well to each other. Without well communication to each other, the life will be very tough. They need to talk something which they can understand and share with.

I don't mind to marry illiterate woman if i fall in love with her. Love makes magic mayrah, that' what i believe. Lots of very educated people in here married with a partner who doesn't even finish grade. I gess chemistry & understanding is the key for love to succeed, sometimes education can be good & bad at the same time, it can be a problem if we it it do so, so is illiteracy.

I like you disagree on this. My aunt and uncle are both graduate of college and both working. I reside to their home for more than 7 months. There are more days they are fighting rather than having a peace and happy family for them. I still believe that love is the most important and vital in one relationship and binds with trust.

Beyond the veil, love and honor!Some people get married when they think they want to find a wise woman, beautiful and of money.The problem is that if they encounter a woman with the "charismatic," their chances to seize on it are minimal. I think it's normal for everyone to know their limits in some way. I believe that wives who are on very different levels may be an intellectual scale only if the happy couple make great efforts. It's not impossible, but it is very difficult. Because if people do not share the same desire for study,research, they will get bored with each other. There are,however, and can be completed successfully. A great scientist being married to a woman with secondary education? Even if he can not tell what is working, trying to discover what can she find the love,understanding,moral support.If she loves may be useful for more han an educated woman would not be good at it closer. Question: "If the wife is much smarter than her husband can get a happy life together?" Answer: depends on both. Details are very important, and a trenchant answer may not understand.In principle the answer is still negative.Only if there is a motivation that binds stronger than the force that separates them, than the force made up of pride and selfishness. Usually intellectuals are very proud.They are aware of their superiority and others concerning them up. They are "initiated",the others are laymen. Very hard to resist temptation manages an intellectual vanity. And what love can be between a woman who is ashamed of her husband and a man who lives under the pressure of "brilliance" of his wife? I think it is good only if it fits on another level, spiritually or sexually.It's very important that his wife knows how to mold each other according to the structure.But not only shapes the man. He's not a woman teacher and student.It is true that, out of pride, some men refuse to learn from their wives.But they have not only lost that. And the more love will be greater,the fruit will be richer.
