What Would You Trade Your Spouse For? Twitter Weighs In

In February, a survey conducted by software company TeamViewer showed that 5 percent of Americans polled would be willing to divorce their spouse if it meant they could quit commuting and work from home instead.

In a send-up to the strange stat, The New Yorker recently ran a mock confession of a commute-weary woman forced to reveal to her husband that she was, rather unfortunately, among the 5 percent. Cora Frazier writes: "You see, this was the choice the survey offered me, as I understood it: I could continue to take a forty-seven-minute train ride (or a thirty-eight-minute ferry ride) and a twelve-minute subway ride to and from work every day while remaining your wife, or I could work from home and cease to be married to you. I have chosen the latter."

The humor piece got us wondering: What else would people be willing to trade their spouses for? On Friday, we jokingly put that question to Twitter and received some interesting responses: Wives and husbands, for instance, have nothing on Nutella.
