    Higher education

    Hello, what I want to understand please:
    "The percentage of divorce among couples in which wife is more educated than her husband is about the same as among couples in which the husband has the higher education".

    What does it mean 'the higher education'?
    A)In which the husband is more educated than the wife?
    B)The level of education of the husband is higher education?

    Re: Higher education

    The original sentence would be improved with "...husband has the higher level of education."
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
