``professional position'' figured in 71 percent of answers.
``Spending time with children'' was a distant 11th in
importance, cited by just 51 percent of respondents.
The results are to be be published in the November issue of
the German edition of the French-based magazine which hits news
Forty-six percent of those questioned said they would be
prepared to loan their wives or girlfriends out for a fee of
1,000,000 marks ($650,000). Nearly 30 percent said they would
accept even 100,000 marks.
