Christmas Shopping

[sponsored] This sounds about right.

Do you know any families where the husband takes control of the Christmas shopping and the wife isn’t involved?  No?  Don’t worry.  It’s because they probably don’t EXIST.

A website for newlyweds called TheNest.com surveyed 500 married couples about their holiday preparations.  They asked who takes the lead on holiday shopping . . . the woman, the man, or both equally?

73% of couples say the woman takes the lead.  27% say the man and woman split it equally.  And 0% . . . yes, 0% . . . say the man takes the lead.  Out of 500 couples, not a single man runs the holiday shopping.

42% of the women surveyed say they wish their husband helped them more with the shopping . . . especially getting gifts for HIS parents.  62% of women say their husband’s parents are the hardest people to buy for.
