Who's men are bad spellers and how many women are bad at math? I am only asking this just to see if this is something common or if it isn't. I am a great speller but my SO is great at math. But I am horrible at math and he doesn't spell very well. Or maybe the women are good at math and the men are good spellers. Who is good at what?

  • My husband hates spelling. I'm not bad at math, but my dh, and yes - lol, both my high school kids - are better at it than I am.

    My ds is a better speller than my dd, but her handwriting is easier to read, so it's easier to tell if it's spelled right.

    My dd wants to be a high school teacher, teaching band and high school math.

  • My husband cant spell to save his life. I've got notes from when we were first married and dating that he wrote me and a lot of it was written phonetically and I remember struggling trying to interpret them the first time I read them. I am a much better speller than he is. We are pretty much equally math challenged. We've got down adding, subtracting, muliplying, dividing, and some basic algebra, but anything beyond that is way out of our leagues. But we don't need anything more than basic math, so we get by

  • Well my husband is good at math and spelling--even though he says he is not. I am horrible at both. But heck I am fun.

  • My husband spells like a third grader. He sucks at math too. I went to college and made an A in all my maths & Sciences. English and writing papers is another story. But i can spell better by 100% than he can.
