Love is very simple to explain…
For a woman, you get the feeling of love where there is the possibility of a nest.
For a man, you get the feeling of love where there is the possibility of fertility.
Love is THAT simple. It’s a nice feeling…but it’s very mechanical in fact, and very simple. It’s more or less rational when you have a male and female of roughly equal marketability and roughly equally-limited supply, i.e., in a healthy community. Then you get good families and roughly good marriages.
A female nests, a male inseminates. Rich men give the proposition of unlimited nesting, hence they are given unlimited supply. Young attractive (healthy) women give the proposition of unlimited inseminating, hence they are given unlimited offer. In these bounds are marketability and also disposability. At the boundaries, you get insanity of course and nothing rational at all. Unlimited supply on one hand, and zero on the other.
It’s simply about what leads to, what has the potential to lead to, successful reproduction…which is what genes want.
A woman has every right to value the potential to nest from her partner (agency, wealth, resources), as a man has every right to value the potential of fertility (young, healthy, attractive).
