Looking for a “Convent-Educated Man”?!

I sometimes have to scratch my head in bewilderment when reading papers here in Oman.  In the Matrimony Section of Muscat Daily I keep seeing ads worded like this one:

OK…so this girl is “convent-educated” – I get that…but she’s seeking a groom who is “convent-educated”?!  Does that seem odd to anyone else out there? Hello?!  Doesn’t “convent-educated” mean that you have lived or at least stayed in a convent for a certain period of time? And isn’t it usually nuns that go to a convent? And, correct me if I’m wrong, (Am I really going out on a limb here?!) but aren’t the majority of (dare I so ALL!) nuns actually “women”?!  Things that make me go “Hmm…”!
