Do men have anything in common when choosing their partners? The study found that the standard of modern people's spouse selection has changed a lot, and men also increasingly prefer women with good education and the best income stability. Let's look at the details.
The standard of modern people's spouse selection has changed a lot. A large survey found that men increasingly prefer women with good education, intelligence, talent and stable income. It is understood that this study has been conducted every 10 years since 1939.
In the 2008 study, the "essential characteristics" men want their partners to possess include: mutual attraction and love, trustworthiness, and emotional stability; Important characteristics include: well educated, smart, good-looking, thoughtful; The most expected partners are "good financial ability and job prospects" and "good cooking skills and housekeeping skills".
The "essential characteristics" women want their partners to possess are: mutual attraction and love, independent personality, and emotional stability; Important characteristics include: well educated and smart, responsible for family and children, and ambitious.
Christine Welland, the head of the study, pointed out that compared with the past, this survey shows that generations pay more attention to economic independence when looking for partners. For men, the trait of "good job prospects" only ranked 17th in 1939, the bottom in the 1967 survey, and was promoted to 12th in 2008.
At the same time, more than 80% of women hope that their husbands know how to appreciate and "say thank you". "A word of gratitude is the simplest way to keep a woman happy." Psychologists found through research that women who deeply feel loved by their partners will complain less when faced with heavy housework and are more likely to obtain satisfaction.
