Statistics

In a 2011 poll of approximately 300 Japanese married couples yet to have children, 70% answered they loved their partner. There was no statistical difference in replies of the wives or husbands.

When a child was born and became two years old, the same question was asked of the same couples. It elicited very different results. 50% of husbands said they were in love with their wives. Just 30% of wives, though, answered that they loved their husbands.
