What's on your Bucket List?

What's on your Bucket List?

The desire to get married is sliding down British women’s to-do list but having a family remains a high priority, according to a research.

The poll,by Bing, Microsoft’s search engine, examined what Brits really want to be doing in various areas of their lives, revealed the top ten most popular items on the UK’s bucket list. Starting a family ranked second on the list with getting married coming in at 4th, for women.

“Getting married would have been at the top of the list for women over a decade or two ago,  but now with our hard-won independence and more equal footing in society women are just as ready to travel the world as men, according to sociologist Jenni Trent Hughes.

Men, on the other hand, are far more interested in driving an F1 car than settling down.

“However both sexes have put having a family high on the list, another sign of the times. And both are finally realising the importance of striking a good work-balance, which of course will be necessary in order to live a fulfilling life,” said Jenni.
