Almost all married men and women have at one point in their lives wondered what it would be to have another partner. They have wondered what their conjugal existence would have been if someone else was sleeping besides them. However, majority of the times, these thoughts were considered nothing more than short flights of fancy and discarded just as quickly.
But a new survey might indicate that a large number of women do take these thoughts pretty seriously and few of them seem to be taking some bold steps about them as well.
People have fretted over backing up their hard drive or having a backup pair of sunglasses, but as reported by The Daily Mail, it’s time to be introduced to the concept of the “backup husband.” According to a recent Mail survey of 1,000 married ladies, half of all women have a backup husband in mind, should their current one break during use or, you know, should the marriage not work out for whatever reason.
The consideration of a secondary or a backup husband is found more in females who have been married for some time as compared to those who have been engaged for a short time, reported SFGate. Moreover, married women are more likely have a Plan B in the background than those who are just in a relationship. Some truly prepared wives may even have more than one backup in mind ‘just in case.’
Who do the women prefer as their backup? Choosing a spouse itself is a big and arduous task. It takes a lot of planning and level-headedness to jump into holy matrimony. Needless to say, married women have spent the same amount of time choosing a backup or replacement husband.
Interestingly, about 10 percent of the women surveyed didn’t have to start looking as they revealed they already had the guy ready without needing convincing. Around one in ten women said their Plan B had already confessed his undying love, while one in five said they were confident he would ‘drop everything’ for her, if she asked him to.
What is even more worrisome though, is about 10-12 percent of women confessed they have stronger feeling for the backup husband, than the current one and about 5 percent of the ladies’ backup, was someone close and about the same number of females were even considering rekindling their romance with the man in the shadows.
