Teachers are the Recipe for a Happy Marriage!

New research released today by Britain’s largest married dating site, IllicitEncounters.com, shows that teachers are the best ingredient for a happy marriage! When 1,000 IE members across the UK and Ireland were asked ‘What do you do for a career?’ the lowest percentage of them (0.5%) said they were teachers. As well as that, when asked ‘what job would you like the mother/father of your children to have?’ the highest answer was ‘teacher’ (27%), beating ‘CEO’, ‘salesman’, ‘actor’ and ‘engineer’.

The top six professions the 1,000 respondants had were:

  • 1)CEOs or business owners (243 votes)
  • 2)Lawyers (213 votes)
  • 3)Politician/local councillor/senior civil servant (205 votes)
  • 4)Banker (129 votes)
  • 5)Doctor/Surgeon/GP (106 votes)
  • 6)Personal trainer (104 votes)

Five out of the thousand who said they were cheaters said they were principles (2 men and 1 woman), taught maths (1 woman) or drama (1 woman).

So why exactly are teachers 486% more likely to stay faithful than CEOs or business owners?

“There are many reasons why teachers are more likely to commit to a marriage than other professions,” said psychologist Lucy Redford, “Unless they’ve made a horrific career choice, teachers are usually very good with children. In the classroom they can see the effect of arguing or separated parents, and because most teachers are empathetic, they won’t want to create the same turbulence in their own home. They’ll more than likely have the ability to discipline children because it’s their job (both in school and at home). It’s for this reason that teachers have a high respect and commitment to a marriage and won’t risk fracturing it.”

Claire Page, spokesperson for IllicitEncounters.com said “What I find most interesting about this survey is that people seem to have good instincts, because despite the financial benefits, most people didn’t want the father or mother of their children to be CEOs, and CEOs in this surveys ranked the least faithful profession.”

The top five reasons people said they wanted their children’s other parent to be a teacher were:

  • 1)They’ve great summer holidays.
  • 2)They’re patient – teaching teaches teachers patience.
  • 3)Teachers have good and predictable hours.
  • 4)Teachers are protectors. They don’t tolerate bullying.
  • 5)They are incredibly influential. Teachers shape futures.
