In the News (from The National Post): “Women bear brunt of bad marriage woes, study says” Men and women in bad marriages both feel depressed, but women are the only ones to suffer from high blood pressure, abdominal fat and other high risk factors for heart disease and stroke. But the same wasn’t true for their husbands. “Women tend to value the quality of relationships more than men do, and perhaps, even more important, they pay attention more, so when it’s not going well, they’re aware of it and more concerned about it than are men,” says Tim Smith, the study’s co-author and a psychology professor at the University of Utah.
My Comment: Men are less dependent on women and less attached to them. This is Eve’s “condemnation following the sin,” which says: “Your yearning shall be for your husband, and he will rule over you.”
