It must have had a very strong natural selection impetus. Set aside the free-will thing.

If a man were to look for a woman to be the mother of his children, what model should he use? Well, the man survived to adulthood, therefore he knows one model that worked for him. He might also have aunties and sisters, etc. So he has an array of models to choose from. Chances are the models with which he is most familiar are kin and/or have clan/kinship ties. So these will be his proper definition of successful women.
