Wakefield, West Yorkshire (PRWEB) January 31, 2009
SingleMuslim.com is an interactive community of more than 250,000 members who are seeking potential marriage partners.
The website recently polled its members to find out if there are any professions that they are particularly attracted to.
Over 2,700 users responded to the survey and, when asked to state a preference, 463 (16.7%) said that their ideal match would be a doctor.
Teachers, entrepreneurs and lawyers also proved popular with those seeking prospective marriage partners, with accountants, bankers and designers scoring less favourably.
However, over 50% of respondents said that it didn't matter what career their ideal marriage partner pursued.
Adeem Younis, Managing Director of SingleMuslim.com, said: "There is obviously a sizeable proportion of our membership who would prefer that their partner worked in the medical profession. Doctors are widely held to be high-earning, respectable professionals, and it is not hard to see why they are seen as desirable matches.
"Nevertheless, it is pleasing to see that the majority of our members are not limiting their choice of marriage partner because they have firm views about ideal careers or job prospects."
A total of 2773 votes were returned in the survey. The responses to the question "If you could choose the career of your ideal marriage partner, what would it be?" are as follows: Accountant: 98 votes (3.53%) / Banker: 71 votes (2.56%) / Designer: 76 votes (2.74%) / Doctor: 463 votes (16.7%) / Entrepreneur: 145 votes (5.23%) / Lawyer: 140 votes (5.05%) / Teacher: 278 votes (10.03%) / Doesn't Matter: 1399 votes (50.45%) / Other: 177 votes (6.38%).
