We’re all guilty every now and then of dating people who may “lack” a tad bit in the knowledge department. However, a recent study shows that more women are marrying dumb men. Being that times have changed and most females aren’t just sitting around the house cooking and cleaning for their hubby while waiting at their beck and call, the typical housewife role is slowly becoming extinct. Do females who are the breadwinners in their households just want a “trophy husband” to sit around and look handsome while she goes out and supports the family? According to the survey, the answer may possibly be yes.
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution says:
According to 2012 U.S. Census data, 20.7 percent of women are married to men who have less education. In 2012, 19.9 percent of men were married to women with less education.
Researchers say the role reversal is more prevalent among newlyweds because younger women have surpassed men in higher education. Among college educated newlyweds, 39% of women married a spouse without a college degree, but only 26% of men did so.
Check out the break-down of the actual study in the gallery. Do you agree? Did YOU marry a dumb man just because you’re desperate and don’t think you deserve better? Or is love blind and education is simply a non-factor in 2014? Drop your comments below.
