From being just a "man's best friend", dogs (and other pets) have been promoted to being "loved more than anyone else."
A recent study, with a thousand participants who are pet owners, re vealed that most of these people love their pets more than the important people in their lives. Around 57% of the participants that are aged 27 to 42 love their pets more than their siblings. A little below the same figure disclosed that they feel the same towards their moms. Around 30% of the participants revealed that they love their pets more than their romantic partners.
This "love for pets over love for humans” may be one of the reasons why previous studies show that millennials are less likely to build their own homes and families.
