My mother is highly intelligent and was almost the valedictorian of her highschool. Later, she went on to attend Columbia University. But despite all that, she could barely function in the real world in terms of holding a decent job and making a living. And she resented the men she was married to, in large part I suspect because they were betas, and not an alpha chad like my father was... She was unfortunately an alpha widow. My mother didn't want to work, but rather be a housewife (she did keep busy doing housework, and especially gardening, at least when not on a bi-polar mood swing). And yet she resented the men she married, who financially supported her. This made for an unpleasant childhood, especially because her choices in men were not good, to say the least.
