Women call their husbands more than anyone else in their phonebooks which, according to a new report, could indicate that wives are more interested in their relationships than their husbands are.
"It's the first really strong evidence that romantic relationships are driven by women," said Robin Dunbar, the study's co-author.
When I read this recent piece from The Huffington Post the first thing I wondered was is this really the first strong evidence that relationships are driven by women? I found that hard to believe. Even more than that, I questioned how it could be determined that the number of phone calls a woman makes is indicative of her level of interest in the relationship. What I thought is that married women are generally responsible for most of what goes on in the family. I think if you asked many women about the content of all those calls to their husbands their responses would have less to do with their interest in the relationship and more to do with what's for dinner, picking up the kids, what bill has or has not been paid, and if he can pick up the dry cleaning.
