Marrying an Intelligent Woman Prevents Dementia; No Word on Intelligent Men
The main finding of this study is encouraging: men married to intelligent women are much less likely to develop Alzheimers. (I should, therefore, be iron-clad protected, thanks to Mrs. G.)
However, it is surprising that the emeritus male professor, in reporting this study, did not even mention whether women receive any protection from marrying intelligent men.
I think this is garden-variety sexism.
It is also a perfect set-up for so many jokes.
