Meryl Streep says ladies invest time and effort into their marriages and romances because they don't want their relationships to fai
Actress Meryl Streep believes women
do more to make relationships successful because they want
them to work more than men.
The Oscar-winning star says ladies invest time and effort
into their marriages and romances because they don't want
their relationships to fail, whereas guys tend to go with the
flow when it comes to their love lives, reported Contactmusic.
"Women have their antennae up more. It is all
self-preservation, they want the relationship to work. Women
make a religion of relationships. They study how to make them
work, while men do not, as a generalisation," she said.
The 63-year-old screen icon also said that she is
delighted that film-makers are finally exploring emotions such
as heartache, embarrassment and lack of intimacy that many
older couples experience.
"They don't make movies like this, about people my age,
where their love life matters. That was very unusual. Love is
uncomfortable, as is being stuck and feeling a need to get out
of the rut that you are in," she added.
