NEW YORK (PIX11) – When there’s a bump in the night, who in your house goes to investigate?

Usually it would be the big, burly husband, but according to a new study, one fifth of men have no problem sending their wives. So much for chivalry.

The survey, which was commissioned by security company Yale, found that a quarter of the men pretended to be asleep rather than go inquire about a strange noise in the middle of the night.

The reality is, the roles in modern families have changed significantly, where a surprising amount of men admit that their wives are braver than they are.

Specifically, the role of the woman has evolved immensely with a another study from the University of Illinois showing that the number of dads who stay home full-time with their kids has reached an all-time high. The data suggests that more and more women are not only positioning themselves in the role of family managers but also the main breadwinners.
