Study: Husbands Always Agreeing With Wife Felt Diminished Happiness

Posted: Updated:

"Yes, dear." If you find yourself always agreeing with your wife, you may want to start expressing your true thoughts and feelings.

Researchers found husbands that let their wives have the last word grew increasingly miserable during a study.

They say that men's quality of life dropped from 7 out of 10 to 3 out of 10 in just 12 days. The results were so alarming that scientists stopped the study.

Opinionated wives' level of happiness only went up slightly from 8 to 8.5 when their husbands agreed with everything they did.

The study was published by the British Medical Journal, and it was done by the University of Auckland in New Zealand. Over the 12 day period, husbands had to agree with every single thing the wife said.

The comments have been extremely critical of the study and also of the modern trends in gender relationships.

Gary, from Yorkshire, writes on the Dailymail website, "Who would be happy being forced to agree with something they think is wrong under any situation? What real life scenario is this supposed to be simulating?"

One anonymous user even wrote, "[Men] overall need to grow a pair, otherwise yes, you are only sperm donors."
