Actress Meryl Streep believes women do more to make relationships successful because they want them to work more than men.
The Oscar-winning star says ladies invest time and effort into their marriages and romances because they don't want their relationships to fail, whereas guys tend to go with the flow when it comes to their love lives, reported Contactmusic.
"Women have their antennae up more. It is all self-preservation, they want the relationship to work. Women make a religion of relationships. They study how to make them work, while men do not, as a generalisation," she said,
The 63-year-old screen icon also said that she is delighted that film-makers are finally exploring emotions such as heartache, embarrassment and lack of intimacy that many older couples experience.
"They don't make movies like this, about people my age, where their love life matters. That was very unusual. Love is uncomfortable, as is being stuck and feeling a need to get out of the rut that you are in," she added.
