All men have a certain type of ideal woman they want to marry. Some say the top traits men look for in a woman are reliability, warmth and fairness. Others say they look for an hourglass shape, long legs and shiny hair! It varies from man to man. But guys, you may want to shake-up that priority list a bit, in the light of new studies.


According to recent studies conducted by the University of Aberdeen, the quality that men must look for if they want to live longer is intelligence.

Marrying a smart woman prevents degenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s and Dementia, which is the 6th leading cause of death in the US.

Professor Lawrence Whalley, emeritus professor of mental health in the College of Medicine and Life Sciences at the University of Aberdeen, said: ‘The thing a boy is never told he needs to do if he wants to live a longer life – but what he should do – is marry an intelligent woman. There is no better buffer (to dementia) than intelligence.”
