If smart women indeed only want to marry smart men, Carney retorts, and if smart men "are willing to date outside of their IQ cohort," then it follows that smart men are more open-minded than smart women, and that less intelligent men are at a disadvantage when it comes to marriage.

In a rational dating world, he continues, smart men discount smart women because of their call options.
But smart women don't appear to be discounting smart men in the same way.Back in the 1970s, it might have been raining men, but today there's a veritable drought -- at least for two groups of single ladies.The question of whether America's women have enough marriageable men was taken on by Brookings Institution senior fellow Isabel Sawhill and former senior research assistant Joanna Venator.Their answer isn't all that reassuring for two distinct groups of women: college-educated women and black women.
