Season 1 Episode 107

Do men have a harder time committing than women? If so, why? Relationship expert and Tyrese's personal life coach, Iyanla Vanzant, weighs in. Iyanla, who was married three times before and never wants to get married again, reveals why commitment can be so daunting for many people.

"We have unrealistic expectations of our partners," she says. "I want you to make me happy, earn the money, father the children, wash the car, take out the trash and be good in the bed—as you brush your teeth and have your vision and pay your bills on time. That's 10 things."

According to Iyanla, it's not that men don't want to commit; it's just that they might be overwhelmed by the prospect of clearing a bar set impossibly high. "They are leery about whether or not they can live up to the demands and the expectations that are placed upon them in a relationship."
