A new study has revealed that over half of the married men are attracted to their wives' moms.
The survey of 1,500 men found that while quarter of men have a genuine crush on their partner's mum, 31% felt their mother-in-law secretly fancied them, and a one in six thought their partner's mother looked better than their other half.
The results discarded the old tradition that men dislike the mother-in-law as eight out of 10 admitted they had a great relationship with their partner's mother. In fact, two thirds of men in relationships said they'd be happy to see their partner ageing as well as her mum.
A bold one in eight even admitted that their mother-in-law is more stylish than their partner when it came to dressing sense and looking good.
Spokesman fashion retailer Peter Hahn, which carried out the poll, said that "the results unearthed a strong appreciation for mothers and clearly many mother-in-laws have much of which to be proud."
The study showed that mother-in-laws were admired both for their appearances, style and personality overall.
Hahn added that today's women over 50s present themselves far more stylishly and possessed a confidence that would clearly make them feel fabulous.
