Ladies, when did you first realize when the honeymoon was over? Was it the day your husband asked you to pull his finger for the 100th time? Was it when you didn’t shave your legs for a week and he didn’t even notice? That loving feeling doesn’t last forever, but here’s a surprising fact – the honeymoon period you have with your car may last longer than the one you share with your spouse.
LeaseTrader.com recently conducted an eyebrow-raising poll where they asked about 2,500 men and women how long they loved their car and when they came to the realization the car honeymoon was over. The magic was gone for men in about four months. That’s when they started to park close to other cars (33 percent of those polled) and put their sports equipment in the backseat (22 percent).
Women, on the other hand, looked at their cars with starry eyes for an average of 14 months – more than 3 times longer then the men. But when the shine started to wear off of the relationship, women let their spouse drive their car (39 percent) and starting to car pool other kids (24 percent) for the first time.
