A new study says one in 10 women claims to love her pet more than her partner.

The Brooke Animal Charity in Great Britain commissioned the survey.

Researchers polled 2,000 women who lived with a pet and a partner.

They found 10 percent of participants had more affection for her pet than her partner, and some even turned to their pet for support when they felt ignored by the men in their lives.

Not only that, nearly three out of 10 women polled said they felt the same way about their pet as they did about their husband or boyfriend.

“Pets can’t answer back with sarcastic comments or moan about the state of the house so it’s easy to have a blissful relationship with a pet,” the charity said in a press release.
