That being said, I try to keep an open mind about the brainiac status of my potential matches. I would love to have someone who matches or even surpasses me in intelligence, but I remain open to anyone with reasonable intelligence who is a practicing Catholic. :) I do seem to gravitate to the men who demonstrate intellectual "thirst" and prowess. Conversation is often easier with these men, especially if we happen to share intellectual pursuits. But again, I won't rule out someone who isn't an intellectual.
It worked in my case. She died just 25 days short of our 51st anniversary and she had a higher IQ than I did. I was classed IQ wise as only an average above average.
My late brother's IQ was in the high 130's and he married someone who at best had a low average IQ. Other than her chest size, I could never figure out what my brother saw in her. Their marriage lasted.
