A person's wife being far more beautiful than the hoors of Jannah

Q: An Islamic preacher said that if a worldly wife is compared to a hoor then it is as if she is the light of a candle compared to the light of the sun. What does this mean? Are hoors more beautiful and superior to human wives? Or are human wives superior and beautiful than hoors? 

A: The human wives in Jannah will be far more beautiful than the hoors.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
