London: One would think that a man’s biggest worry would be paying bills, but apparently it’s not – what really troubles them is that their partner might grow up to look like their mothers.

More than one in ten fear their better half will turn into her mum, a survey by Foster’s beer has found.

“If you’re after a nice slim, fit lady but her mum’s obese then there’s a good chance she might go that way too,” a news daily quoted relationship expert Jo Barnett as saying.

Men also worry about being forever single and chatting up women out of their league, the study of 2,000 men revealed.

“The evidence shows that British blokes are spending far too much time stressing about women. We want to encourage them to instead take a more laid-back approach and live life for the moment,” said a spokesman for Foster’s.
