I see intelligence, in any relationship, as to whether she can pick up on my diabolical plans for world domination.

I have some thoughts, though - almost axiomatic - those who think they are intelligent, in my experience at least, have a slightly exaggerated perspective of it. And there's some very bright people, who don't think they are.

For me personally? I think I'm reasonably intelligent around some subjects / matters, and have a reasonable intellect - but in some things can be a complete fecking retard. Whereas 'er indoors, well I'd probably say she's as "clever" as me, but also is much more socially intelligent, both in the workplace, and normal social situations.

We're both the same , I'm good at some things , she's good at others, there is a minor dispute on occasions when we both think we're good at the same thing though :shock:

Mrs B has a degree in law and accountancy, a masters in Hr and is one of the most numerically gifted and logical person i have ever met. She works in reward designing pay schemes for 60,000+ individuals and manages a multi billionpound budget each year

She can detect my diabolical schemes for retro gold, keep me a baby and a house in order but.....

She Can't tell left from right and i have to regularly ask "which left" but then again that's what me (the uneducated dimwit) is for...

Intelligence, per se, is impossible to quantify, even using the intelligence quotient scale. This system is only really designed to quantify it with a number, but it is flawed as a system..

I'm intelligent in some aspects, and my missus in others.. Where I lack, she smooths the gaps and vice-versa, it's just part of life, and for us it seems to work well. Don't think either of us are arrogant enough to think either is more clever than t'other..


This ^^^ really, although I always say that I'm as thick as pig shit anyway.
Probably not far from the truth, to be honest.

Al, I'd look into that one further. It may mean that you're technically classified as veal and your household could thus be eligible for some sort of EU agricultural grant. ;)

I hope you are kidding.

It is a myth that the years go by and relationships get boring. Things get much better with time.

Or they end!

Go and talk to her.

Take an origami rose you made from a napkin covered in glitter.

nope,not kidding,we argue nearly all the time,good job we both work different hours so we dont spend so much time together,if it werent for the kids and the house i would be out of here..........yes,really.

so does that make her smarter than me???????

Nope, but you really need to have a think about where your life is going fella :(

My wife makes our house a home, whilst there is a difference in IQ we are both inherently logical people and balance each other in areas of weakness.
