Love may mean never having to say you're sorry, but new research finds that women are more likely to apologize than men, even if they're not in the wrong. The journal Psychological Science finds that men have a "higher threshold" for bad behavior, so they don't consider things offensive, as often as women do.

The guys in the study were not reluctant to apologize once they believed they were wrong, it just took more for them to consider anything out of line.

Women are more likely to consider something a mistake or offensive.
