Research is revealing that when a woman is successful she is having to ‘trade down’ when it comes to finding a partner. Historically, women have looked for partners who were richer and better educated than themselves. Now that’s changing.
Philadelphia-based Pew Research Centre study, published in The Atlantic magazine, suggests female graduates are being put in similar situation to that faced for some time by black women. Apparently 70 per cent of black women have no husband and there are twice as many black women as black men with university degrees.
So, where does that leave smart, educated women these days? Confused. What can they do? Instead of dumbing down to find a man, look for one who loves you for who you are. Yes, he may not be as financially successful as you are, but if he has other great qualities, and is not threatened by your powerful ways, you just might make it together.
