51 Women and 86 men have answered
Take the survey
This survey came about because of a discussion on the blog musings by carly. The question – is Emerson Eggerich’s idea that men want respect while women crave love really valid? Is it valid for traditional couples, but not for other couples?
So men did choose respect over love, and women did choose love over respect, but a significant minority of each gender went the other way.
In the comments, many said love always includes respect, while others felt you could not separate the two. Several said they could not put one over the other.
