Rather than spending Valentine’s Day with their partner, one fifth of adults would prefer to be with their pet, according to a joint global poll by Reuters/Ipsos.

The survey of 24,000 people in 23 countries found 21 percent of adults would rather spend Feb. 14 with their pet than their spouse.

That’s poetic … I guess. /Gary
