If men are from Mars and women are from Venus that difference is amplified during Valentine’s Day.
A new survey conducted by financial services company Bank-Rate found the sexes have very different expectations of how much money should be spent.
Men will spend an average of $339 on their partners while women will spend $64.
But here’s the real disconnect:
Women only expect their partners to spend $154.
Men, on the other hand, wish their partners would spend $211.
Why the vast difference?
Experts don’t know for sure but they suspect it may be due to societal views of masculinity and wage differences between men and women.
