 Women Have More Relationship Regrets, While Men Have Career Regrets

A new study by the Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management has stated that women have more emotional regrets about a failed romance, while men are able to walk away from a relationship without a second thought.

As compared to just 20% men, 44% women felt that they had committed mistakes in their past relationships. Relationship experts have cited that women generally feel more responsible for the emotional side of the relationship and try to analyze the reason behind the failure of the relationship. Men feel expressing regret is 'unmasculine'.

Researchers studied about 370 adults aged 19-103 years to find what they considered to be the biggest regret of their life. The most commonly seen regrets involved romance (18%), family regrets (16%), career (13%), education (12%), money problems (10%) and parenting (9%).

While more married women (20%) wished they had chosen a different life partner as compared to men (12%), men (34%) were more likely than women (27%) to cite work-related regrets, wishing they had chosen a different career path or followed their passion.

Thus the study focuses on the idea that more women mourn over failed relationships and reflect on their failures while men appear ready to move straight without looking back.
