Women "Keep More After Divorce"?

"Women are more likely than men to keep joint possessions when getting divorced, according to research. Men on average wanted their ex to keep 19 items from a list of 24 including the home, photographs and pets, while women wanted the men to get just eight. While women did not particularly want items including the television, CDs, DVDs, and toaster, they were keen their ex-husband did not get them. YouGov polled 3,515 people in May and June for Yorkshire Building Society. The poll found men were keen for their ex to keep items including the bed, television, wedding album, lawnmower and garden accessories, house plants, coffee machine, Monopoly board and the family pet."
