Both Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian have been leading ladies in the Sims like animations by NMA.tv. Now they’ve highlighted another news story with their characteristic reporting. The topic? Divorce.

According to the Wall Street Journal nagging is a leading cause for divorce these days and could allegedly be as detrimental to a marriage as adultery. Resent research by University of Denver professor and Center for Marital and Family Studies co-director, Howard Markman suggests that couples who constantly nag each other often end up quarrelling about the nagging itself and don’t look at what underlying issues are causing the aforementioned nagging.

Much blame is placed on the women by the article, as they often tend to feel a greater responsibility to make sure that things get done around the house. That said, men on the other hand sometimes tune out or don’t respond to their wives requests out of fear they don’t have a suitable answer.

Sound familiar? How do you deal with nagging in your relationship?
