Most men want to spend less time at work and more time with their families, even if that would result in a drop in how much they earn.
That's according to a major study on employment carried out by a sociologist at the University of Leicester.
The University of Leicester's Dr Shireen Kanji, and Dr Robin Samuel, of the University of Bern, analysed data on the working lives of more than 4,000 men in twelve European countries, including the UK.
The study found that men viewed seeing their partner as just as important as seeing their children. Male breadwinners with a partner and no children were as keen to spend more time at home as men with both a partner and children.
