    Question This should be interesting -- Who is smarter - you or your spouse?

    OK guys (or gals) time to come clean.

    Who has the greater brain power in the relationship?

    I am sooooo tempted to take this further, but let's just leave it at that and see where it takes us.

    My wife. This is an absolute no brainer. You're talking about somebody who graduated in 5 years with a masters and a 3.8 GPA and passed her CPA on the first try (less than 10% of people in the country do this) and who is one of the fastest thinkers I know...

    And me, who graduated college with an English degree in 7 years with a 2.0 GPA. There are many more comparisons I could make, but I think this is sufficient.

    If you can't tell, I am very proud of my wife.

    I don't know, but I'm smart enough not to answer that.

    When it comes to things economic, political and historical, I would say me.

    I don't think 10% of the people in the country even attempt the CPA exam.

    Re: This should be interesting -- Who is smarter - you or your spouse?

    So am I going to be the first arrogant ***** who says they're the smarter one (not by leaps and bounds) in the relationship?

    Guess so.

    Not arrogant. There's a 50/50 chance that it is you. Those aren't bad odds. ;)

    What I'm most curious so far is those not answering. It leads to assume: 1) it is them (or they believe it is them), and 2) their spouse reads their CF entries and that could make their answer a problem..
