Healthy romantic relationships follow a natural progression.

Progression means that she accepts who he is.

Thus, she controls the progression.

Children

Children are the ultimate acceptance of him. The earlier that children (and sex) occur in the natural order, the more likely the relationship is to fail. Early on, she can’t possibly have enough information about him to extend that level of acceptance. This reveals a lack of true strength on her part. So unless there is real substance in the relationship, he has less motivation to stick around.

Following the natural progression allows her to determine whether or not he is a fit partner. This is the most overt sign of true strength that a woman can display. And it is extremely attractive to a man.
