You've heard the phrase, "Always have a plan B." So what about a plan B in case your marriage doesn't work out?
According to one survey, more than 50 percent of women said they have a "backup husband" just in case.
A survey asked 1,000 married women if they have a "backup husband." At least 500 of them said yes. In some cases, women have more than one "backup" in mind, according to the survey.
It also found that women are most likely to fall back on an ex or an old friend to fill that void. Most of the women who were surveyed also said the eligible bachelors they have in mind are "ready and waiting" for them.
One in five women said their "backup" man would be willing to "drop everything" for her if she asked him to. But what is perhaps the most startling discovery of all is that one in four women say they have feelings for their "backup husband" that are "as strong" as their feelings for their current husband.
"For our research to establish that 50 percent of women in relationships have a 'Plan B' is a worrying sign," a spokesman for OnePoll.com said. "Men need to be aware of any old friends that turn up out of the blue that's for sure."
With sites like Facebook and Twitter nowadays, it's "easier than ever" to reconnect with a potential "backup."
