Men who earn less than their wives have better sex
You can't have the best of both worlds. For married men, it's sometimes a choice between the boardroom and the bedroom.
In a US study of 1,010 people by Time Money magazine, 56 per cent of men who made the same or less than their wives reported a “hot” or “very good” sex life.
The figure dropped to 44 per cent for husbands who earned more than their wives, reported Shape Magazine.
Relationships author Jean Hannah Edelstein told Mail Online: "I wouldn't advocate that men rush out and quit their jobs to improve their sex lives, but it’s another reason for them to join women in the campaign for gender pay equity."
The poll also affirmed that money is the root of all evil - it was the main source of friction in relationships.
Seventy per cent of married couples argued about money. This was ahead of fights over chores, togetherness, sex, snoring and dinner.
All this led to one sad figure.
Sixty per cent of married partners check their bank accounts more than they have sex.
