Intelligent women should consider marrying less clever men if they want to start a family, according to researchers.
There are simply not enough brainy men to go round so women may need to widen their search, warned the author of a report that found a growing number of professional women were freezing their eggs because they couldnt find Mr Right.
There are fewer educated men in the world for educated women to partner with, said Marcia Inhorn, professor of anthropology at Yale University.
So if women want to find a partner with whom they can have children, they need a more expansive notion of who is Mr Right.

There are - but they’re too smart to want to get married....
Men only let women think they are smart....
Its part of the game
That's the key word right now. So many, female and male, do not want to get married.
In a lot of cases, ‘education’ seems to brainwash the smarts right out of one.
More like “women buried in student loan debt for worthless degrees need to marry somebody who wasn’t dumb enough to bury themselves in student loan debt for a worthless degree to pay off their student loans for them.”
Maybe the smart men are smart enough to recognize a losing proposition when they see one.
I have found only a handful of women that were smart, capable, and not raving emotional lunatics.
Not really, I think they are dumb for not wanting to get married
They have zero risk and all of the rewards
It works out great, if it doesn’t you get half of his stuff
Maybe the institutions of higher learning ought to discriminate against men less. But that would take abandonment of Marxism, oh dear.
And oh yes: what is better, an “educated” man who frets in a feminized fashion when the car breaks down or a skilled man who can fix the problem at the side of the road?
“More like women buried in student loan debt for worthless degrees need to marry somebody who wasnt dumb enough to bury themselves in student loan debt for a worthless degree to pay off their student loans for them.”

What is the incentive for men to get married?
“Smart women need to marry down to become mothers because there aren’t enough smart men...”
Well, it worked for my wife.
Women want to marry men who make more money than they do.
Totally old-fashioned sexist thinking on my part, but I think women are happy if they marry a strong man and focus on home life and raising children. Of course they can choose other paths, but their chance of happiness diminishes as they strive more and more to take the man's role and abandon motherhood, which is their role.
Plenty of smart men out there. That is why you can’t find them. They are smart.
At the extreme right of the bell curve, there is an overabundance of men compared to women. The population of Fields Award winners isn’t exactly a ladies’ club. But she conflates education (and, most likely, social status) with intelligence.
Go Asian young man.
In reality, it never was.
In the past a college education was more an indicator of a wealthy family.
Today it may even be contraindicative of intelligence and education (particularly if it is a liberal arts degree).
