My friend Jenny has a theory, first formulated in college:

Women meet the right guy and decide they want to get married. Men decide to get married and ask whomever they happen to be with at the time.

I have always found this a plausible theory, but the men I know continually deny it. MSN had an article called “Why Men Dump Girls They Dig” and I clicked it to see if there was any insight. And oh my God, there it was, number 1 on the list:

“Women get serious when they meet the right man. Men get serious with whomever we happen to be dating when we're finally ready to settle down. That means after every other aspect of our life is in order — whether it's finishing grad school, finally pulling down a good-size paycheck, owning a car outright — or when our friends start dropping like flies (that's guyspeak for getting married).”

Then I saw the article was originally printed in Cosmo. (Ugh.) But still – validation for Jenny.

My mom has told me the same thing. I wouldn't doubt it.
