Do you want a happy husband? If so let him go out with his friends twice a week. Professor Robin Dunbar of Oxford University says in a report that while ‘talking with friends on a daily basis is valuable, to experience the real benefits of friendship men must meet up in person twice a week with four friends and ‘do stuff'.
Recommended activities range from playing sports or simply grabbing a beer at the bar. The report says that men who maintain social groups are healthier, recover from illness more quickly and tend to be more generous. Despite the findings, two out of five men claim they manage to meet their friends only once a week and a further third struggle to catch up that frequently.
