Why Women Talk More Than Men

Posted: Updated:

Guys, you probably know your girl talks a lot more than you do.

Gals, are you frustrated that he always clams up and seems to have so little to say?

This used to be one of life's little mysteries.

But it turns out there's a scientific reason for what could be one of the most frustrating differences between the sexes.

University of Maryland School of Medicine researchers say women's brains have higher levels of a language protein called FOXP2.

The study also says the average woman speaks about 20,000 words a day. The average man speaks a mere 7,000 words.

Fox's Sharon Crowley has more details in this video report on the explanation... and whether couples are buying it!
