COMMENTS

Every preference profile of this type has exactly one pair of people who rank each other first.
This is the same number of preference profiles as when all men rank the same woman at only the ith place, and all women rank the same man at only the jth place, where i and j can be anywhere from 1 to n.
The total number of possible profiles is A185141.

FORMULA

a(n) = n^2 * (n1)!^(2*n).
a(n) = A342573(n)^2, where A342573 ignores women's preferences.


EXAMPLE

When n=2, there are 4 ways to pick a man and woman who are preferred by all people of the opposite gender, and then 1 way to fill in each of the remaining slots in every person's preference profile. So, there are 4 different preference profiles.
