She has "nothing" to (show) for being in a long-term relationship that failed. What does this mean?

I have never heard this statement applied towards a man after a relationship has failed. Both people were in the relationship for the same length of time! Presumably neither party was (selling) their time or services to the other. Is a commitment staying together through ups and downs or is it a legal means to extract financial benefits in the event a relationship fails? Is a commitment the way a couple (actually) conducts their life together?

    A man is left with the same ending and yet no one says, "He has (nothing) to show for his time and emotional investment in the relationship." Most relationships fail. If they didn't we'd all be with our high school sweethearts. No kids is lucky then.
