New research from Scottish Provident reveals that more than nine million adults would buy relationship insurance that would pay out for choosing the wrong partner or spouse. Women are more likely to opt for this than men, with more than a fifth saying they'd welcome financial protection for their love lives.

More than a quarter of people (28%) would buy insurance if it could compensate them for getting old. And women (one in five) would be twice as likely as men (one in ten) to buy insurance that pays out if they pile on the pounds.

Surprisingly, only 6% of men would insure against losing their hair.
