The majority of women prefer their pets to their partners

Article

According to a study of pet owners by BizRate Research, pampered pets may now overrule domestic partners in matters of the heart, at least for women.

According to a study of pet owners by BizRate Research, pampered pets may now overrule domestic partners in matters of the heart, at least for women. The study found that 56 percent of women felt that their pets were more affectionate than their partners. Only 41 percent of men felt the same way. And twice as many women as men—45 percent—think their pet is cuter than their partner. Much of this may be explained by the fact that many women reported they had a deeper emotional bond with their pets than men did. Other interesting conclusions:

  • 73 percent of female respondents say they are more likely to date or marry someone who also has a pet.

  • 72 percent of women report their pets make them happier than their jobs, compared to 60 percent of men.

  • 70 percent of women owners feel that their pets reflect their personality.
