    Congratulations. One man will now see this accomplished lady, like what he sees, will want to marry her only to now suppress her because he is the “head”. May God blind the eyes of every useless man to you. May they not see you. Amen.

      Exactly!! the same reason why men don’t marry them because of their certain superiority spirit of making the ship to have several captains,most of them can be arrogant about their intelligence,also their better than you syndrome which normally takes effect after marriage,. and of course the intellectual competition which usually ends up in argument.Don’t get me wrong,intelligence is sexy,what can i say? most men love intelligent/highly educated women from a distance but once they come into contact with such women,there is a decrease in attraction.Although educated and career women are not necessarily the same thing in people’s view but the same in my own view.Most men prefer a simple woman over an highly educated one for the simple reason that highly educated women are too dominant and controlling.No real man want a wife that looks down upon him as lesser.Infact main reason why i rejected my woman post graduate study.This is a big issue in my family right now,i have rejected my brother’s engagement/marriage proposal to his Medical doctor fiance for 3 years now,I have tried to advise him but instead he decided to listen to his fiance.Who is she? A medical doctor “fiance”not a wife yet disobeying my command? I have noticed that my brother is becoming stubborn now because of her.I’m still holding that marriage from happening,that marriage can never hold in my life,over my dead body.Never!!.

      Anyway,the question still remains;Are most men so insecure we live in fear of fellow persons who happen to be educated women? NO…believe it or not most men are not attracted to highly educated women.Especially Alpha males seek to avoid partners who compete with them intellectually instead they look for someone to bolster their ego rather than destroy it.Human nature is such that men are defensive towards people who threaten them.Even at work men avoid highly educated women if they feel undermined by them or if they threaten their natural order. You can’t have two alpha’s bultling heads,it never works.pairing them exacerbates social inequality, and also trying to pair them is a recipe for failure.Opposites attract,most of the highly educated women are attracted to beta males and blue pill men,which they may have to be taken care of.that’s the simple truth.I have seen these beta males who are married to these highly educated women and i have witnessed their condescending treatment from their intellectual wives,being belittled and spoken to like naughty children i squirm for them.

      Yes most men do have problem with dating/marrying an highly educated women but why is it that a man who’s allergic to highly educated woman is deemed as a weak man?Why? for most men the idea of dating/marrying someone more intelligent/educated than themselves may actually be a turn off.Physical attraction and personality catch most men attention not education.Obviously all men are different and to generalize an entire gender would be wrong but i’m speaking from 80-90% of men out there.

      BTW Congrats to the young lady.Please i’m not hating.Wish you best of luck

      Just look at this nitwit called chief.. Senile bitter idiot. Gosh you sound like a whiny teenager.
      “A medical doctor “fiance”not a wife yet disobeying my command? I have noticed that my brother is becoming stubborn now because of her. I’m still holding that marriage from happening,that marriage can never hold in my life,over my dead body. Never”
      You must really think you’re important. May God deliver your brother and his fiance from your ugly and evil hands. Shey the wedding will happen over your dead body don’t worry that’s exactly what will happen. Speaker of 80-90% of men. Agbaya oshi. Say congrats and waka pass no, you much show your insecure misogynistic ass everywhere.
      On a lighter note congrats Opeyemi. Keep soaring higher.

      My friend, i felt chill down my spine when i read that part of @chife, who talks like that over their own brother’s marriage and happiness? I wish the brother in question could by some miracle read his he will know the kind of person he calls family.he is not even ashamed,or even feel some type of way saying that.just because he is afraid of marrying an educated woman,he wants to forced the same thing on his own brother. Claiming that the brother is now stubborn,like the person is a child and can’t decide what best for him.he shouldn’t be happy with his wife-to be because she is a doctor. Godforbid bad thing.may God protect the brother and his fiancé. May they get married and live a happy life.may it be over “the dead body” of anyone who will try to come between jesus name.Amen. @chife shame on you.i split on you. You are a very wicked human begin.

    Yes, it may be true. You have to be at same threshold for you to have those kind of ladies, I mean, highly educated ladies. True, most of the compete and dont succumb when it come to some issues. They can be terrible a times. Their marriage sometimes dont last, they like to dictates – be the boss.
