Intelligence is (by my definition) problem solving, lateral thinking and learning from experience quickly.

So who is more intelligent you, or your partner and perhaps more importantly does it matter to you anyway?

As a mathematician he is more intelligent than me as a householder I win, but I'd rather have the degree I set out to get.

Now this may come as a shock to you all.... I'm right fick.

I left school (rough as **** school in Wythenshawe Manchester) at about thirteen as I was having trouble (family reasons) I also have dyslexia, which was discovered when I was about thirty! and therefore didn't gain any qualifications.

The missus went to a posh school in Cheshire and gained loads of O levels and a few A levels then studied economics and Russian History at Uni'.

We get on really well and have done for the last 23 years! Obviously we don't communicate with each other and I live in a wooden crate in the basement.
