Love is a pretty complex thing, but a recent study has shone some light into what makes us want to marry someone.

The study claims that men with a higher verbal intelligence are more likely to get married.

Over 190,000 men participated in the study and a range of variables were looked at - including their income, social status and IQ levels. Their IQ levels were then split into 3 sections, verbal, logical and numerical intelligence. 

Verbal intelligence involves having the ability to 'solve problems using language-based reasoning' - those who displayed the highest level of this kind of intelligence and wit were more likely to end up in a long lasting marriage.

The same study also showed that men with more money were also more likely to marry than those on a lower income.
