The iron is there during my times of happiness, sadness and anger. The iron is there available through the 4 seasons and inclement weather. The iron is there to either comfort me or motivate me. The Iron manages to show me how strong I am or how humble I need to be. The iron does not yell, but it always demands respect. The iron is not a disciplinarian, but when disrespected, I feel it for a long time. The iron does not love or hate, but we definitely share a strong bond. And no matter how far I stay away or for how long, the iron is there, waiting to be lifted.

Same thing here. It's very rare that I feel cold. If I'm walking in the mountains with Mrs T, she can be layered-up while I'm in a T-shirt.
There are many reasons for the sex difference, some of which have been mentioned, but it's partly down to men being heavier (which Moe alluded to) and hence having a lower surface area/volume ratio.
Think of it like this:
Imagine you have an animal that's roughly cube shaped, and he measures 1cm X 1 cm X 1 cm. So his volume is 1 cubic centimetre. He has 1 cubic centimetre of tissue that is doing all the metabolic processes that generate heat.
He loses that heat through his surface. He has six sides and each measures one square cm. So his total surface area is 6 square cm.
So his surface area: volume ratio is 6:1. For every cubic cm of volume he has 6 square cm to lose it through.
Now imagine his bigger brother who measures 2 cm X 2cm X 2cm. He has a volume of 8 cubic cm, and a surface area of 24 square cm.
His surface area: volume ratio is 24:8 or 3:1. This means that he loses heat much more slowly than his little brother, because his ratio is only half as large.
Bottom line: the smaller your body mass, the harder it is to stop radiating away all your heat. Even if everything else was kept equal between the sexes, this alone would mean that women get cold more easily. It's also one reason why children and very old people get hypothermia more easily: they just have lower body mass.

My wife is always colder than me. I come home from work and the house to me is hot in the summer but she says that she is chilly. I agree, it could very well be the testosterone in men.
