If you think your boss is the biggest cause of stress at work, you may be wrong, for a new study has claimed that spouses cause more anxiety at home than superiors in office.

According to the study, based on a survey of 3,000 people in Britain, there may be no place like home, but if one wants to relax then one might be better off at work.

You can’t drink beer in your underwear at work.
At least I can’t.

Can no one write properly anymore? Your boss IS still the biggest stressor AT WORK. The spouse may cause more stress at home than one feels at work.

Maybe people who choose to work for jerky bosses do it because they're used to hanging around people who cause stress?

What should you expect from Euro-trash, which act more like Euro-Bitches, they can’t even manage their own country with any certainty.

“Your boss IS still the biggest stressor AT WORK”

The effects of a contemptuous, demeaning, overbearing spouse causes stress in every aspect of life.

They have pretty much outlawed any stresses a boss can provide.

Another attack on the family.

These people must live with so much hate, I can hardly comprehend their warped minds.

Well then I would say get out. That applies to either situation. If you don’t like where you’re at, leave. I have and am so much happier.

There was a long-term study that examined the effect of marriage on longevity.

Single men, never married, led the shortest lives.

Married women fared better than single men but as a group did not live as long as their husbands.

Married men led the second longest lives.

Single women, never married, lived the longest lives of all.

Other than the Muslims, I didn’t think there were anymore spouses in England. From what I read (over and over) it’s normally just a guy and his partner (usually a woman, but not always), with different last names, raising some kid or kids.

Of course the Muslims still put value in traditional relationships (regardless of how they treat their women), making it that much more difficult to fight them on a moral level.

I’m not dismissing marriage but I do question the wisdom of living a long life in complete hell as sometimes happens. We’ve all seen it.

I’d rather not live as long and have my great Hubby!
I’d live longer but it would seem MUCH longer too.

Are you sure about this part? Not only would it contradict the fact that women have an average 2 year longer lifespan than men, but it would directly contradict the reality that surviving spouses tend to be female.

My bosses are first class.

Sarcastic. Funny. Pushy. Smart as Hell. Meaner than a snake.

They are my reason for getting up in the morning.

Men usually marry women younger then themselves; that is why it seems wives outlive husbands.

Single women/single men are the stats that effect these statistics the most.

Single men never married reflects the higher death rate for men due to two factors: work and recreation related deaths, and the risky lifestyles of homosexuals. Women do not usually perform heavy construction, combat, or engage in risky adrenaline-driven sports activities.

There exists a high suicide and homocide rate among homosexuals, as well as a well known occurrence of diseases particular to anal sexual activities.

Single women never married exhibit little in the way of risky behavior, whether it be in reacreation or sexual lifstyles. Most have jobs that do not involve physical risk.

Keep in mind that this involves large groups over a long period of time. There will be individual exceptions to the above familiar to each of us.

It’s because they are the closest people to you, and when you feel they get on you unfairly, it’s worse than someone you’re less close to. When they don’t understand you and misinterpret what you did and usually assume the worst intention, it’s worse than if a stranger or acquaintance does it. It’s easier to let it slide when the person doesn’t know you as well. Part of it is we feel they should know us better, give us the benefit of the doubt, and not assume the worst about us. They know the things that bug us and yet when they still do those things it’s like they don’t care. You open up to them about problems and fears and if they get thrown back in your face during arguments, it’s just brutal betrayal.

And then, what if you and your spouse work together? I just blew your mind. Your boss at work could also be your ‘boss’ at home! No place to escape the stress. It’d be like the neutered guys in the Netherlands where the women won’t even let them pee standing up.
