Should Husbands and wives have the same educational level?  (2010-05-17 15:26)

Yesterday ,one of my friends started a discussion about having/being a house wife/working wife.

 

This triggered a question in me Should Husbands and wives have the same educational level?


Will this create problems in our life,if the qualifications vary ?


Chances are there..


I think this a major reason for most of the family quarrels.


Unconditionally, home life is impossible without conflicts.


Will a higher education level for husband make them feel superior over their wife?


I think the best solution is same education level ...

 


What do you think ?


All suggestions are welcomed

    It's best if both people in a relationship have the same education level , so that one doesn't feel superior over another. Also if one partner is more educated, this leads to the other partner feeling that they're not as valuable in the relationship. Depression can result because of this.

    I guess the degree doesn't matter as long as you respect, love and value each others opinion. My mom and dad had the same situation, my mom finished her masters while my dad wasn't able to proceed in his masters. They talk calmly and value each others opinion. Educational level has never been a problem to them, maybe because they are both mature and they love each other so much.

    I don't think the education stuff matters the marriage. I've seen couple with the same education level (my parents, all P.H.D. s), couple with the wife having higher education (my cousin and his wife) and also couple with the hunsband having higher education (my hubby and I), and all the couples above own a happy marriage

    I don't think a difference in education level would make much of a difference in a relationship unless it was rather dramatic.

    They should be about the same, with some variation (not too much). True love is hard to sustain (or even exist) between significantly unequal people.

    But love seldom is equal...

    Qute so. Love itself is a separate matter. But proper relationship has its prerequisits too.

    This is depend on the character, on my opinion, if they have the same way to deal with the matter, or there is less divergence, they will stay longer. The similar knowledge breadth insures their conversation well, but it doesn’t means they should have same educational level.

    It is easier at first, if you have similar education. After a long time, it really doesn't matter.

    I think it's better to be same level. If you can make it, at least try to be close to. Because understanding means everything for a couple.

    I don't think the education level really matters.  As long as each spouse respects the other one.   If there are going to be concerned about who has the better education then they likely have other bigger issues.

    Personally feel that to maintain the same level of reality is not easy, there are gaps, or to maintain tolerance, mutual complementarity and mutual learning to improve is better!
