Who does the nagging in your house?
Researchers say women nag more than men because they have more to nag about.
The study at Ohio State University involved about 50 couples.
It found women are more likely to demand a change in the behavior of their spouses.
And the researchers say husbands are more likely to withdraw in response to a wife's complaint.
That withdrawal may take the form of brief answers, trying to change the subject-- or promising to change.
