An interesting piece by David Brooks on the importance of a warm family life to success of men as adults, but equally of the aging (maturity?) effect on men. Quote:

The men of the Grant Study frequently became more emotionally attuned as they aged, more adept at recognizing and expressing emotion. Part of the explanation is biological. People, especially men, become more aware of their emotions as they get older.

Part of this is probably historical. Over the past half-century or so, American culture has become more attuned to the power of relationships. Masculinity has changed, at least a bit.

Hope for us yet!
