Half of Men Would Leave Partner Over Weight Gain
According to a recent poll conducted by Cosmopolitan and the website Ask Men, nearly half of all men surveyed would leave their partner over weight gain. Comparatively, only 20 percent of women surveyed said they would depart because of weight gain. The poll included 70,000 men and women. The results come hot on the heels of a study linking marital happiness to the body-mass index of wives.
The survey found a number of differences between the sexes. While over 50 percent of men surveyed said they wished for a larger penis, less than 20 percent of women expressed the same desire for their partner. Two thirds of men have sexual fantasies about their wives’ friends, while approximately one third of women surveyed have similar fantasies about their husbands’ pals. When asked about status symbols, men named family as the top priority, to the tune of 38 percent. Women, on the other hand, selected a beautiful home, with 43 percent choosing this as their biggest priority.
Defying conventional wisdom, half of all men are likely to lie about the number of sexual partners they have had, compared to a little over one third for women. Men are also less jealous, with two thirds of men having no problem with their partners finding an ex on Facebook. This is compared to a little over one third for women. Three fourths of men consider sexting cheating.
Perhaps the biggest shock — besides the news that men are willing to leave a partner who puts on pounds — is who should pay. Only one third of women think men should pay, with most (38 percent) in favor of Dutch treat. Almost 60 percent of men are more traditional, thinking that men should pay for dates.
