Deborah Carr of the Rutgers University said that men often don’t want to express vulnerable emotions, while women are much more comfortable expressing sadness or worry. She said that for women, getting a lot of support from their spouse was a positive experience, adding that older men, however, might feel frustrated receiving lots of support from their wife, especially if it makes them feel helpless or less competent. In the study, researchers examined 722 couples, married an average of 39 years, and asked how their marital experience and the reactions of their spouse affected them. Carr said that if older men or women with dementia had reduced impulse control, they could lash out against their spouse if they were feeling frustrated, adding it was very important to keep in mind these dynamics even with long married couples who you may not think have any problems. Carr concluded that there has to be a middle ground between marital suffocation and togetherness, adding that spouses want to feel loved and supported but not trapped.
