Brainy women face handicap in marriage stakes: British survey

I think there are 3 reasons for this.  The first is in the article and men just want women like their "mum". 

The second is because career women don’t have time for a family.  Men want off-spring and we don’t want it to coincide with our mid-life-crisis. 

The last reason, which I think is one of the biggest amongst many males:  Men find dumber women more attractive for some reason.  I believe that this is because smarter women intimidate dumber men.  This reason perturbs me the most.  Men should be grateful to have a smart woman to back them up.  I know I am.  I’m pretty sure Anthony is (just kidding man).  Just suck it up men.  You don’t have to be the best at everything.  And if you are out for looks, those will fade in 10 years.  In 20 years they will be pretty much gone.  The "person" inside those looks will be there forever.

Yo punk, don’t talk about my mom.

Anyway, in America and probably the UK too, our culture promotes egotism very strongly.  That contributes to your #3 which I also think is the biggest reason for this phenomenon: such egotistical men (which is most men) are intimidated by anyone smarter than themselves, so they are not likely to marry such a person.

I think your #2 is more true for "decent" men who aren’t so egotistical.  These kind of men don’t want a wife whose job is more important to her than her family.  Such "career women" are typically very gung-ho about their jobs and very feminazi in general (not naming names here but I think the same person comes to your mind as to mine...) and very few men want a woman like that.
