Women 'blame partners for relationship failures'Posted on: May 28, 2013 13:37:26
Members of the fairer sex are more likely to blame their other half for failures in their relationship than their male counterparts, new research has revealed.
According to a study carried out by scientists at the University of Texas, women usually point out their partner's flaws and misgivings on a regular basis - which could put even the strongest relationships under pressure.
Experts also found that people who are unhappy in their romantic lives spend more time concentrating on their negative emotions during a dispute, while happy couples tend to coordinate their thoughts so that when one person has many unhappy feelings, the other has fewer.
Lead investigator Dr Anita Vangelisti, professor of communication at the learning institute, said an individual's thoughts during a conflict reflect and shape their wider satisfaction regarding the relationship - and can even affect the feelings of their other half.
Researchers collated responses from 71 young unmarried heterosexual couples in Texas, who had been together for an average of three years. Participants were encouraged to express their thoughts to a researcher while in a separate room from their partner.
It was discovered that during a conversation regarding conflict with a romantic partner, the other person is more likely to become unhappy in the relationship when they believe their boyfriend or girlfriend is making excuses.
Those people who are unhappier are usually inflexible in their thinking and usually attempt to change the topic of conversation.
Dr Vangelisti said: "Our findings certainly do suggest that thinking about how angry and frustrated you are - or thinking about how much power is being wielded during a conflict - is not beneficial for the relationship."
In addition, it was found that women were more likely to blame their partner for problems in the relationship than men, leading researchers to raise questions about widely-accepted differences between the way members of each gender think.
