If you had to choose, would you rather have a spouse who is more intelligent or less intelligent than you?

My fiancé has an IQ over 160. I'm as dumb as a doornail compared to him.

Would rather you be more intelligent if I'm more attractive ;)

I like the way we balance each other out. I'm book smart & my husband is mechanical. (He can fix just about anything.)

I have always gone for guys who are highly intelligent. In fact, I fell for my first boyfriend when he was talking about string theory at a party.

I talk about string theory at parties and all it gets me is shut up. :/ ;)

My fiancé is ten times smarter than me. I don't mind it, I like it actually. I love to learn, and it's nice to have someone who is extremely intelligent help you learn new things.

I hate when people treat me like I'm inferior to them, and honestly, smart people tend to do that without noticing. I know. I am one.

Yes! That's the biggest issue with having a genius spouse.

More intelligent. What can be wrong with more smarts in the family? It's not like I'm overflowing with it or anything [insert joke here]. :-)

I dunno

I say smarter for him, as long as he isn't uppity about it. Knowing I could go to him when I couldn't riddle something out would be great

Early. Your supposed to go up to my comment and say something like , "oh no okie, you're a smart guy." You're leaving me hanging there. :-)

According to my extremely credible source, Urban Dictionary, someone who finds intelligence the most sexually attractive feature is known as a sapiosexual :)

I am pretty intelligent, and like opportunities to learn more. I enjoy being around people smarter than me.

Surround yourself with people dumber than yourself and you become dumb surround yourself with smarter people and become smarter.

It'd be nice to be challenged, but they don't have to be "more" intelligent than I am :)

I really don't know.
I'd really want an equality of intelligence. Out of the two, I say less intelligent since I enjoy being as intelligent ask am, but I really just want love - I could care less whether they're more or less intelligent than I.
