Women want traditional housewife role back, claims study, but can it really be true?
Women want life to back to pre-feminist times and are happy to play the stay-at-home housewife, according to new research published today, but we want to know: is this really true?
According to a recent survey of 1,500 adults, 40% of women claim 'financial stability' is one of the most important qualities they want in a man, while prowess in the garden is prized way above skills in the kitchen, or with a duster, come to that.
Men, meanwhile, want a wife who will take care of the home, cook, clean and be a good parent, and couldn't care less about what she earns or success at work.
Yorkshire Building Society, who conducted the research, said: 'A lot of women used to think they wanted a metrosexual man.
'But then they realised they were fed up with a man who spent longer in the bathroom than they did.
'Many women now feel they actually want a hunter-gatherer and they will look after their man in return.'
