This is tangential but as a woman, I'd approve of these wars but would execute them much more efficiently. So don't vote for me!

In general, it all has a way of coming together like a patchwork quilt once time and maturity set in

Many of those people aim for it because of family or societal pressures, for money, or for attention.

What is one thing women can do that men can't?
Bring life into this world.
Right, it's conditioning fed to women through all those sources... and then some.

And men are conditioned to provide for these occurrences.

Somehow, I think there are fewer men willing to provide than there are women wanting to have kids and a family. LOL. Yikes.

women love getting married but not being married.
i 1/2 agree with what u said about guys. with reluctance, against their better instincts, guys are pressured to "do the right thing" by church and family.

And, ahem, where do you think the sperm comes from? A sperm tree or sperm river?

But women face time pressures which men don't have anything like as much, so they aren't fussed really.

Mostly, I think women are more in love with weddings than anything else.
