I think women are more outward in their expressions of love, while most men may seem indifferent, aloof, or cool. Not saying that they aren't in love with their wives, but the way of expressing it are different, and thus may make some feel that the woman loves more. Not the case.

This applies to either sex. Think of it in terms of this quote:

".....in many relationships (personal, business, etc..) the one who cares the LEAST has the power"

and make your selection appropriately. Incidentally, I can't imagine, as some have said, hor one can determine who loves the most. But its easy to determine when one hardly loves at all - the one with power in the relationship.

I am one with the believe that the man needs to love the woman a tidsy bitsy bit more. I'm advocating that both should LOVE one another, but the man a little bit more. Men psychs are different and they need more grounding. So, IMHO, slightly uneven relationship works better in the long run.

Who wants to be in a relationship that is a power struggle?

There is no struggle at all. If one has what the other desires, they will often put up with a lot to keep them. Perhaps its a case of low self esteem but there is no power struggle. If the weaker party asserts them self, the other usually walks.

Exactly - and those that live that way eventually contribute to our high divorce rate

Were you hoping to rely on that "theory" so the woman does most of the "loving" on you and you get to sit back and take it?

Not with a self-respecting woman, bub.

Its because of this that a lot of women feel that their men either don't care about them, and over time women can become resentful because they feel they are the only one invested in the relationship. So the man has to either show he loves her the way she feels it should be shown, or if he continues to be himself he winds up divorced.

I think it's always better if the man loves the woman more than she loves him.

I know if I wasn't I would have left my husband a long time ago.
