I don’t know about you, but I’m in no way shocked by the results from a recent survey claiming that 50% of women have a backup or Plan B in the case that their current relationship falls apart.

Furthermore, I’m in no way shocked that this ‘Plan B’ man is someone who they’ve either previously dated or know intimately.

Philly Mag breaks down the survey results:

Half of the women said they had a backup person “on call” should their current relationship not pan out. This was even more true for married women, who were even more likely to have a lurking Plan B than women who were just in a relationship.

One in 10 ladies said that this Plan B was someone who had already professed love, and was, in theory, still pining.

One in five said they were quite sure that Mr. Plan B would totally “drop everything” and come running, should she summon him.

Around half said that this backup person came into their life since they’ve been with their current partner; the other said he was around before their current love.

One in four women who had a backup said that their feelings for this backup human were as strong as they are for their partner. (What?)

12 percent of these ladies said that their feelings for their backup were stronger than for their partner. (WHAT?)

Seven in 10 said they are currently in contact with their Plan B.
Half of these women said that their current husband or partner is aware of said backup’s existence.

One in five of those said that they can joke about this with their person; one in three said that referencing their little arrangement was “uncomfortable.” (SHOCKER.)
One in four ladies said that their husband had met their Plan B, and actually, one in five said you know what, actually, he’s one of his friends!

So women want to hedge their bets, who cares? Wikipedia has the current divorce rate for the USA at 53%, so 3% more people actually get divorced than plan ahead.
