Love and Anger

It turns out that women believe the two are related:

It revealed women most likely enjoyed spotting when their partner was dissatisfied because it showed his strong “engagement” or “investment” in their time together.
Dr Shiri Cohen, the study’s lead author, said: “It could be that for women, seeing that their male partner is upset reflects some degree of the man's investment and emotional engagement in the relationship, even during difficult times.

It has been said that the opposite of love is not hate but rather apathy; the results of the aforementioned survey would suggest that it is indeed the case.  In a way, it makes sense, since you only fight over the things you care about.  So, if you’re fighting about your relationship, it stands to reason that you care about it.

Incidentally, this is a lesson betas need to learn.  It is almost always better to express anger (though it’s probably best to avoid doing so in a manner that can land you in jail) than to bottle it up.  And if you don’t get worked up over your relationship when things start to go south, it’s quite probably doomed.
