I think this might have a lot to do with the fact that men aren’t able to get emotional support and aren’t able to open up with other men the way women are able to open up to their female friends. Women are able to cry, laugh, and support each other. Men really aren’t able to do this with their male friends as it comes off as unmanly. So they go to their wives and girlfriends and unload on them since they have no guy friends they can console in. I think this is a real good reason why women are better able to cope in general, because they are able to support each other in a healthy manner while most men just bottle up their emotions and anger until they explode.
