Study: Most women want to marry a doctor, What do you think?
A survey shows that doctors are the most admired and most trusted marriage partners. By contrast, actors and musicians, along with journalists and advertisers, were among professionals that people trusted the least, and were also least likely to choose a partner from, according to a survey by Synovate, the market research arm of Aegis Group plc. The survey polled about 5,500 respondents in Brazil, Canada, China, France, Malaysia, South Africa and the United States. Most showed that the desirable profession of their partner is someone who’s a doctor, overpaid, and they would love to marry. Sixteen percent nominated doctors, nurses and other healthcare professionals as their preferred marriage partners, higher than any other profession. A 10% also admired those in the science and technology field, 14% admired those in the education field. Educators and doctors were also voted the most trusted by an overwhelming 86 and 87 percent. Only one percent picked retail professionals as partner-material, and those in media and marketing, as well as entertainers, did little better at two and three percent.
