These are the jobs your father-in-law doesn't want you to do

For many of us, meeting the in-laws is a frankly terrifying experience. Well if you're a doctor, you needn't worry.

A new YouGov poll asked participants: "Imagine you had a daughter/son about to be married. Presuming they were happy with their fiance, what profession would you most like him/her to be in?"

The results found that the most desirable profession for both genders was medicine, with law or teaching filling the rest of the top three.

In-Law Poll

There were interesting disparities in the research: prospective in-laws would much rather a banker or soldier son-in-law than a daughter-in-law with the same profession, but they'd rather their daughter-in-law be a nurse or a teacher.

MPs claimed the bottom spot with a devastating one percent of the vote, whilst actors and models both fell short of in-law affection. It could be worse though - journalists were ranked low down for what YouGov calls their perceived "villainous" nature.

Perhaps we should have taken that architecture course after all.
