New Delhi, Oct 31 (IANS) A vacation must mean a vacation in its truest sense. A majority of Indian women have admitted in a new survey that they prefer to go on a holiday without their children, primarily due to a lack of personal time with their spouse.
The survey, by Happytrips.com, was spread across Karnataka, Maharashtra and Delhi NCR with a sample size of 1,000 females above 33 years of age.
As many as 63 percent of the respondents indicated that they’d prefer a holiday with their husbands alone, even if it means going out of their way to make special arrangements for leaving the kids behind.
Of the 1,000 respondents, 57 percent were working women and 43 percent of them were homemakers — denoting that there isn’t a wide difference in the aspirations of the two groups.
When the women, who said they didn’t want to travel with their children, were asked the reasons behind their answer, 52 percent of them said they don’t get any personal time with their husband at home.
The second most popular reason was “I need a break from being a mom”, with as many as 30 percent of the respondents opting for it.
Of those surveyed, 12 percent even ticked on “I don’t like my kids, they are a nuisance when out of the house”, while six percent of them said “my kids don’t enjoy family holidays”.
