Women seem to have more issues than men?

Just for fun ... I can't help but noticing a couple of things:
1. it looks like most participants on this board are women, who bring up issues related to second marriage (yes, I'm included!)... and...
2. I notice that in my own relationship (to be second marriage for both of us), I seem to be the one who bring up issues (most are related to issues that are only unique to second marriage/serious long-term relationship).
That got me thinking why men don't seem to have these issues. First, I thought that men are just not naturally inclined to 'share' their feelings. BUT, (I can't really make a generalization on this one, I'm just curious if other women have observed similar behavior) my DF was most vocal in expressing his being upset when I said that I enjoyed SEX with one of my ex-boyfriends. I 'only' had 4 sex partners in my life, the fourth being DF, but I had enjoyed the experience with only DF and one of my ex-bf. I know that this is probably stereotyping, but my theory is that ,perhaps, while most women are concerned about their/their partners' feelings and thoughts, most men are concerned about sex. It bugs me that he used to be in love with and married to another woman, it bugs my DF that I used to enjoy sex with another man. HA! What do you guys think?
