Young couple

Women believe that men should just go ahead and merge with robots and see how they like it.

Move over, sex and money. The new No. 1 issue that couples fight over is the technological singularity, concludes a new Harris Online poll. “Typically, men are all for letting artificial intelligence roboticize and usurp humanity, while women want humans to remain a distinct, vibrant and naturally evolving species,” said lead pollster Sylvester Reed.

“I geek out on the possibilities of accelerating evolution,” said one survey respondent. “My wife just doesn’t get that to make an omelet you’ve got to break a few eggs. How cool would it be to merge with a robot?”

Let us know how the singularity is affecting your marriage or other relationships.
