There is new scientific evidence showing men actually slow down when walking with their significant other.

Research done at the University of Washington showed males slow their normal walking pace by 7 percent if accompanied by their wives, girlfriends, or romantic interests.

Scientists who conducted the study say it could be related to instincts left over from our hunter-gatherer ancestors as a way to subconsciously conserve female energy.
