It's not your imagination . . . your wife does get dressed up nicer and seem a little happier when she's going out with her friends instead of you.

A new survey from TruthDive found that 33% of married women say they actually prefer going out with their female friends than their husbands.

They also say they get dressed up a little more, spend longer on their hair and make-up, and spend more money when they're out with friends.

60% of women surveyed said they prefer shopping with their friends than their husbands because their friends give better advice.

I totally prefer to shop without my husband.
