Relationship Protocol: Nagging

I’ve always disliked the term nagging, I guess because it seems to imply something that only women do to men — just think of any sitcom that revolves around a family. It wasn't until the other day at a friend's house that I realized that's not always the case. I witnessed a simple request from my friend to her husband turn into a repeated demand. It was extremely frustrating to listen to as her plea became more and more urgent each time she asked it.

But clearly, her behavior was brought on by his refusal to meet her request, and thus, he was just as at fault as she was in regards to the nagging. It seems to me that it has nothing to do with women and everything to do with the dynamic in a relationship. But ladies, do you agree? Is nagging a relationship issue or a woman’s problem?
