The differences were so significant that the scientists on this occasion published a separate article. The study failed to install: rich women want to have an even more successful man. Successful men are not as important wealth ladies. But attractive appearance, on the contrary, occupies a leading position in the criteria of choosing a partner.
The survey was attended by 28 thousand volunteers aged from 18 to 75 years. "We were very surprised to learn that preferences of women and men are so different," says the New York Post, Professor of health psychology David Frederick, one of the authors of the study.
Only 24% of men believe that a wife should not earn less than the husband. 33% of respondents told the researchers that his wife does and should earn more than their husbands.
Serious differences were found in the group of people with high income. The appearance of the man for the rich ladies, as it turned out, does not play such a significant role. Almost all rich men want to live exclusively with an attractive woman.
