The findings are based on a survey of 1,250 women aged 35 to 44 by the Bradford & Bingley bank.
The results also showed that only 58 percent of the women were "very happy" with their choice of hubbies.
And while they may not want a man in their lives, most women do want kids, for one in five plan to have more children.
"Over 35s need not despair — as there is plenty of time for them to change their lives for the better," The Sun quoted spokesman Paul Whitlock, as saying.
The survey also found that more wives than singles had savings, as well that a sixth of divorced women had wished that they had not relied on their ex to sort their finances.
