Spending Valentine's Day with your pet? You're not alone

 

ONE IN FOUR AMERICANS WOULD RATHER SPEND VALENTINE'S DAY WITH THEIR PET:

A new Internet poll just surveyed 24,000 people in 24 countries to ask a very important question:  Would you rather spend Valentine's Day with your PARTNER, or your PET?  Listen to the results . . .

--Overall, 21% of people worldwide . . . that's more than ONE in FIVE . . . would rather spend Valentine's Day with their pet than their partner.  

--In the United States, 27% of us would rather spend Valentine's Day with our pet.  That's more than ONE in FOUR.

--Meanwhile, 49% of the adults in Turkey would pick their pet over their partner.  That's the highest of any country.  India came next with 41%, then Japan with 30%, China with 29%, and Australia with 25%.

--Just ONE in TEN French adults say they'd pick their pet over their partner.  That's the lowest of any country.  Mexico, the Netherlands and Hungary were all right around 12%.

--If you're younger, you're more likely to want to spend Valentine's Day with your pet:  ONE in FOUR adults under the age of 35 say that, while just 14% of people over the age of 55 say the same. 

--It's also an income thing:  24% of lower-income adults say they'd pick their pet over their partner.  While just 20% of middle and upper-income adults would choose their pet.  Men and women were evenly split over the question.
