Pets Are Cuter Than Partners.
Big brown puppy dog eyes, and cute little fluffy kittens make a great picture, and perhaps that is why pet pictures are more likely to be displayed than that of a spouse. But according to a BizRate Research survey of 900 proud pet owners, there are some pet owners who think their pet is cuter than their partner.
An extraordinary 45% of women on the survey thought their pets were cuter than their partner – which leaves one wondering what criteria they used for choosing a partner. A mere 24% of men thought the same.
However, beauty is only skin deep. What really counts in a relationship are things like communication. Which is why 99% of the women frequently talk to their … pets! Not only do they talk with them, the women feel that they had a deeper emotional connection with their pets. Not to be left out, 95% of the men confessed to talking to their pets as well.
The scary part, at least for the men, is that the pets seem to be taking sides. Only 87% of the men reported their pets communicate back, while 93% of the women had a two-way communication with their pets.
Even more scary is the 56% of women and 41% of men who admitted their pets were more affectionate than their partners. Perhaps that is why another survey revealed more than two thirds of Americans would rather be stranded with their pet on a desert island than with their spouse.
Is it any wonder that the divorce rate is over 50% of all new marriages when couples spend more time talking to their pets than their partners? These statistics may show a reflection of modern society being so self oriented that our relationships only last when we have the unconditional love and obedience of the other party. Hence pets winning out in the majority of relationships.
Mankind Threatened By Animal Alliance could be the alternate theory. Have pets banded together to divide and conquer the human race? Will we see an Animal Farm uprising on a scale that George Orwell could not have begun to imagine?
