BBC NEWS | Health | 'Younger wife' for marital bliss: "The secret to a happy marriage for men is choosing a wife who is smarter and at least five years younger than you, say UK experts.

These pairings are more likely to go the distance, particularly if neither has been divorced in the past, according to the Bath University team."

I like how it says she should be smarter than the male counterpart. Maybe that's so she can tell her husband how wrong he is and have the proof to back it up. :)

My wife does that all the time, and she's not five years younger than I am. But don't tell her I mentioned that.

My wife is a hell of a lot smarter than me and in my mind's eye, she's still a teenager.

"But if you make an ugly woman your wife,
You'll be happy for the rest of your life.
An ugly woman cooks his meals on time,
She'll always give you peace of mind."

Doesn't say anything about age, though.

Hmm...my spousal near-equivalents have all been at least four years younger than I and all are doing less trivial work than I am...how did I blow it?

Pfui! I'll take one 30 years younger and dumb as a rock.

Back in College I used to tell all my friends that I wanted to marry a woman a little smartter than I. They opined that I was setting my sights awfully low.
