25. Unfortunately, our cannon fodder young men were sent to war

in recent years, by their Daddies and granddaddies.
Moms and grandmoms seldom advocate for the chest-thumping wars our nation has engaged in in the last half-century.

This is meant as a comment, not an argument.

And, yes, I agree with OP that aging of both men and women without family is tough.

I'm widowed, and can't imagine how much harder and emptier life would be without my adult children looking in, helping out now and again. Though I want to stay in my home as long as possible, I think if I had no family I would seek a community for older adults, as they do usually look out for one another.
