Does this sound familiar? Between you and your spouse/partner which one of you is more sympathetic when the other is sick and who is more likely to embellish their symptoms?
According to this study out of Britain by Nurofen Cold and Flu, MEN are more likely to be sympathetic when their wife is ill. Men are also more likely to be at the ‘beck and call’ of their sick partner and they also have more patience.
A woman has way less patience when her husband is ill but it could have something to do with almost half of men surveyed (40%) admitting they “play up” their symptoms appearing to be more ill than they really are.
Does this sound about right for you?
