Couples Stay Together Because Women Want Love and Men Like Sex
You might want to sit down for this earth-shattering, groundbreaking news. Researchers at the University of California in San Francisco just finished a study to figure out why men and women are motivated to move in together before marriage.
They found that men are motivated by the opportunity for more sex, women are motivated by the opportunity for more affection.
In the study, men mentioned “sex” as a reason for moving in 400% more than women. Women mentioned “love” 300% more than men.
The researchers say, “Men also linked living together far less strongly to marriage than women. They view it as a ‘test drive,’ whereas women tended to discuss it as a short interval on the way to marrying their partner.”
