Do you have a Plan B waiting in the wings?


Over half of the people polled, in a recent OnePoll.com survey, admitted to having a "plan B" namely a man who they can start a relationship with, if their current relationship turns sour!

The study polled 1,000 women and, rather alarmingly, discovered that married women are more likely to have a plan B in the background than those who are merely in a relationship.

I perhaps shouldn’t be too surprised by these statistics, given that 42% of UK marriages now end in divorce but 1 in 4 of the women polled, who have a plan B stated that their feelings were as strong for him as they were for their current partner.  This should perhaps be a pleasing statistic as 12% in fact state that their feelings were stronger!

The only positive point to come out of this research was that around 1/3 of those polled said they “doubted” that anything ever would happen with their plan B man. Thank heavens for that!
