These qualities must be present in order for a couple to experience longevity. Too much difference in intelligence is the beginning of being unevenly yoked. Intelligence has to do with reasoning, logic, and behaving age appropriate. A friend told me that he was in a supermarket and an attractive older woman smiled at him for a third time. As he was about to approach, she suddenly stretched to reach something from a shelf and her blouse drifted up exposing a tattoo protruding above her waistline. He knew immediately that they were incompatible because he didn’t believe an intelligent woman her age would tattoo herself.
Intelligence is not limited to academic knowledge but also how well you can envision, solve, create, and comprehend. An illiterate person can be more intelligent that a scholar. Therefore educational level is not as much a glue of your intelligence as smoking, drug use, promiscuity, obesity, and other hazardous lifestyles are glues to a lack thereof. However, according to a documentary on Mensa (an
exclusive club for people with high IQs), it is highly unlikely that two people would have a compatible long-term relationship if their IQs are separated by 15 points or more because higher IQ person would have the view life of an eagle in flight while the other will foster the view of a duck crossing the road.
