  • Time is running out!
  • It's programmed into us from day one. Dolls Mom Dad and Baby..I could go on but you get it!
  • I dont get the urge but think its the whole commitment/ family thing once we feel we are with the right person. Although men get a little scared of being tied down do men not want that security and loyalty based love from one person too come a certain point??
  • ..whats funny is that the second i turned 20 that urge dissipated..i don't mind living with someone but marrying them? i really don't feel like going through all that..at least not any time soon and i'm not rushing it..no way
  • So they can coast the rest of their lives, worry-free on someone else's income... have babies so they can dress them up and take them to the park to be with their girlfriends - it's a regression to childhood when they would play dolls. And, if the marriage doesn't work out, they can always take half the guy's stuff and a chunk of his income for life. Marriage, for most women, is like a loss-proof investment. Well, I'll catch hell for this answer, but hey, you asked. Don't shoot the messenger. This is true in a lot of cases. Granted, it's not true in every single instance - so don't be going ballastic on me just because it doesn't describe you or someone you know. There are naturally exceptions to the rule.
  • Because they need or want more money. They find some poor sap of a guy , marry him, then knowing they are the favorites in divorce court, take them to the cleaners and leave the man on the street. If women married for love there wouldnt be such a high divorce rate, and women wouldnt be the primary ones seeking the divorces. So my answer is that they develop the urge to marry when they develop the urge for money and entitlement.
  • The ones that actually do this claim their biological clock is ticking, but the real problem is that they watch way way way too much Dr. Phil, Oprah, Oxygen, and Women's Channel. They are thoroughly brainwashed into good little consumer bitches and man-leeches.
  • Because woman have an animal instinct of getting pregnant and raising kids to continue the race. Religion has associated this with marriage. That's why women have the urge to get married.
  • Not all women do and many men develop that urge. It isn't gender specific. I have been married for 24 years so far. I never wanted to get married at all, it was my husband who wanted marriage. Because it was something important to him, I actually proposed.
  • becoz ..its nt good to be alone
  • Insecurity
  • Well, if you do it once then divorce the urge is much less strong ;)
  • b/c all of their friends are getting married and they might start to feel like they are the only one who's still single. or b/c they want to have kids, and most women want to have kids with the man they are married to. plus that biological clock is ticking.
  • I think it's just programed into our brain. From the time we are old enough to watch movies and understand them we see the princess get married to her prince and live happily ever after. Unfortunately for some woman they never figure out that it doesn't quite work that way. But in all honesty I think we were just programed to want to get married and be in love.
  • I'ma gall and not yet had that urge, hope you don't get tied down, more fun to life fast and int he most awsome way. As they way the brightest flame is only a short burst, the boring ones are the slow ones that ast forever Pandora Hearts from the Black Lagoon
  • I suppose b/c it is what is expected of them...
  • It's in our nature. Woman love the sense of security and protection. It makes us feel proud of who we are and there is no better feeling than being loved by commitment,
  • Because women want the man in their life to make that ultimate commitment to them
  • I think it's the sense of security that comes with marriage.
  • so they can eventually divorce you and take half your money.
  • ...The question should be...WHY DO SOME...women get the urge to get married. Not all of us do...some of us are just fine being "togather" if the commitment is there then just let it be there, getting married is...IMA MAKE YOU stay with me... Of course though, if the time comes and it happens...let it happen. Marriage is being legally bound, but 2 people can be married...without it being legally bound, and just a commitment between the 2 of them...and that alone.
  • Security
  • They want to feel secure and not lonely.
  • Beats me! Originally it showed strict ownership and important to the family geneology line. They were little more than slaves totally subserviant to their master who didn't treat them anybetter than a slave. I guess women still like to be owned is the reason why
  • Personally, I never wanted to get married... I just didn't see the need for it. I don't think I need to have papers to say that I'm going to stay with someone the rest of my life(which, more people than I can count get divorced now anyways.) I don't see why you can't have all that marriage has to offer.. without having it be something legally binding. If the commitment is there.. it's there, papers, legality or not. However, now I'm wish someone and it just seems like another step to take and something I wouldn't mind doing now. More of a.. Why not? And I want a ring on my finger that shows I'm committed to him. I want a ring on his finger that shows he's committed to me. It's not really for us, more so that when other people see it they know. I want other people to know how much we love one another. I know. He knows.. and now I want everyone else to know. Also... I WANT A PRETTY DRESS! WOO!
  • it was my husband that wanted to get married; i had to be talked into it. Of course, maybe he only wanted to get married becasue I wouldnt move in with him. who knows?
  • Funny, I've never had that urge.
  • They want to start a family and have kids. +5
  • Women are natural nesters. They are nurturing beings and wish to establish a firm hold on family and love in a sane manner.
  • I don't believe they have an urge to be married. I believe they have an urge to be with someone. That comes from nature as they are supposed to mate and bear children. It's a nature thing not a mental thing. Some women do not have that urge at all.
  • Low self esteem and security.
