Average Relationships Stress Men Out

The better a woman's love life, the less stress she feels at work. For men, it's not as simple. A new study out of Sweden revealed that men who say they're in good or bad relationships have less stress at work than those in "average" relationships.

The woman behind the study explains what she learned about men:

"When we talked to the men, they said that when it's in-between, you have to put more effort into it. You keep doing that until the relationship either becomes better or hopeless. When you get to that point, it doesn't really affect your health anymore."

It sounds like an effortless relationship is ideal for male anxiety levels: either it's so good, they don't have to do anything, or it's so bad, they don't care enough to do anything. As long as they don't have to give the relationship too much attention, they're feeling better.

Do you define an "average" relationship as one that requires effort? What do you think this study reveals about some men?
