New Study Reveals Why Married Women Fall Out Of Love Faster Than Men (SEE HERE)

According to a recent study conducted by Carnegie Mellon University, women tend to experience a decline in feelings of love before their husbands.

Published in the Journal of the Association for Psychological Science, the study reveals that women report a more pronounced decrease in their feelings of love over time compared to men.


The research indicates that women initially experience stronger feelings of love than men at the beginning of relationships. However, they tend to fall out of love more rapidly.

The study suggests that this decline is attributed to women feeling stuck managing household responsibilities and raising a family, with a perceived lack of support from their male partners.

To conduct the study, Dr. Saurabh Bhargava, a professor of economics at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, tracked the emotions of nearly 3,900 heterosegxwal adults with different relationship timelines, ranging from recently engaged to married for decades.


Participants were asked to record who they were with and how they felt every 30 minutes for ten days, followed by a longer questionnaire regarding the type and target of their love.

The study revealed that women are far more likely than men to report moments of feeling love early in a relationship, but it doesn’t last.

Women in longer relationships experienced feelings of love while spending time with their partner nearly 60 percent less often than those in newer relationships. Meanwhile, feelings of love only decreased over time for men by 0.4 percent.

Women who fell head over heels reported that the feelings of passion fizzled even faster.

Women’s feeling of “excited love” while with their partners dropped nearly 80 percent over time. The decline was much smaller for men at just 30 percent.

How they’re feeling likely has to do with what they’re doing.

The study found that as they settle into their relationship, women spend more time doing chores and cooking, while men increasingly spend time relaxing and napping.

Bhargava also noted that having children could dampen a couple’s flame, as feelings of love could be reallocated to children and women assume the majority of childcare duties.

The study also found that staying apart helps couples feel closer.
