One of the oldest clichés is that men don’t like commitment – especially not marriage. For years women have had to wait while the man um-ed and ah-ed about what to do, before finally he would commit to the marriage. But it turns out us men have an excuse – our genes! Research that has been carried out has found that some men lack a certain gene type that is found in most men that compels them to not want to get married.
I won’t go all scientific on you – I didn’t understand it myself really – but it would be fascinating to see a man try and use this defence the next time his girlfriend starts moaning to him down the pub about his inability to commit to her for the long term.
