Participants surveyed for a new study were more apt to report that the most difficult people in their lives were female family members such as wives, mothers, and sisters, researchers report.
“With female relatives, it can be a two-sided thing. They may be the people you most depend on, but also the people who nag you the most.”
Close female kin may be disproportionately named as difficult because they’re more likely to be actively and emotionally involved in people’s lives, researchers say.
