Men 'more willing' to sacrifice success for romance
There is good news for women who believe that they will always come second to career-hungry partners.
The findings of a new study challenge the popular belief that women put more emphasis on personal relationships than their jobs.
Catherine Mosher of Duke Medical Center and Sharon Danoff-Burg from the University of Albany questioned a total of 237 undergraduate students about the relative importance in their lives of romantic relationships and achievement goals.
Overall, both men and women showed strong desires for individual achievement and relational intimacy.
Perhaps unexpectedly, men were found to be more likely to list a meaningful relationship as their top priority when asked whether they would sacrifice a romance for career, travelling or education.
Men also appeared to derive more emotional support from their friendships with women than their friendships with men.
