Sure, George has snagged a few Oscars and starred in a slew of great movies, but his wife Amal Clooney (formally Alamudden) is a freaking international law and human rights attorney who reportedly speaks three languages fluently. Point Amal.

But George isn’t the only guy coupled up with a woman who has a more…advanced career than him—and he won’t be the last.

According to data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 38 percent of wives earn more than their husbands. Women are also 21 percent more likely than men to be college graduates and 48 percent more likely to have completed grad school, per a report from the White House Council of Economic Advisers.

To celebrate the women on top, we rounded up a trophy husbands we wouldn’t mind bringing home.
