We’re always on the look out for ways to inspire men to see the benefits of pairing with a female breadwinner and join the campaign for gender equality. Today a savvy Scottish female breadwinner sent us the article in The Evening Standard: ‘Lower-earning men ‘better in bedroom’. A UK survey of 1,010 married couples found over half of the men who earned less than their spouses described their love lives as ‘hot’ or ‘very good’. We just had to share this with our forward thinking readers!
The survey by Time’s Money Magazine, ‘Love and Money, By The Numbers’ found:
- 90% of lesser earning husbands reported ‘happy’ marriages compared to 75% of men whose wives earned less.
- 56% of lesser earning husbands reported ‘good sex lives’ compared to 44% of men whose wives earned less.
- Female breadwinners looked after the home finances: 76% of these women paid the bills, compared to 49% of women who earned less than their husbands.
So, is the secret to a better marriage and a good sex life to marry a female breadwinner?
We at Female Breadwinners don’t advocate men quit their jobs to improve their sex lives. However it is certainly another pleasurable reason for men to advocate for greater gender pay equity.
