If you think you are constantly married to a bone head you may get tired of it. Thank goodness for autocorrect!

I don't view it as a problem or problematic. I view it as a chance to learn. We have backgrounds in different studies and we help each other consider things we may not have before.

When the more educated person has to compensate for the lesser educated person. Or the lesser educated person is jealous.

I guess when one believes they know better than the other because they perceive themselves to be more qualified in the matter.

When there is no respect for the person. Education is relative to the person, not always taught in a school.

Agreed with Jessica. However, we usually agree on educational matters :)

It can make a difference, good thing I'm edge a macated 😁

Lo he vivido. Cuando estas diferencias educativas suponen que mi pareja sea una persona intolerante, machista y xenófoba. También es cierto que normalmente he acabado aburriéndome en relaciones con gente poco culta (pero se puede ser muy culto sin estudios)

En lo personal considero que el nivel educativo no tiene nada que ver en los problemas de pareja, solo son una excusa para ocultar la falta de madurez, que si el gana mas que la mujer o esta mejor preparado que ella, quiere decir que es superior a ella o viceversa... es una completa tonteria, hay hombres con un nivel maximo de estudios y su actitud es mediocre, asi vcomo tambien hay hombres que por alguna causa no pudieron concluir sus estudios y han logrado muchas cosas, creo que todo esta en e

Thinking the education makes you a'better' person

When it starts bothering one that they're smarter than the other or they feel like a "better" person just because they're more intelligent

When one person thinks they're better than the other person because they have more education. Or they know more than the other person because of an education

I feel like it's only relevant when used against someone.

Wanted to hear your thought on it. Thought you might get to it eventually

I don't think it can be a problem at all. If the people are both contributing to the relationship emotional and financial and not using the other than not a problem

When the said educations didn't teach at the end the same values.

no creo que exista algun problema que surja a raíz de eso
