An article that appeared in Time Magazine yesterday is making the rounds this morning.
The article titled “What Two Religions Tell Us About the Modern Dating Crisis” talks about the disproportionate number of females to males in both the Mormon and Jewish religion.
The article boils downs to the fact that “It’s not that He’s Just Not That Into You—it’s that There Just Aren’t Enough of Him.” According to recent data by ARIS, there are three women for every two LDS men.Tristen Ure Hunt who is a 35-year-old who runs a LDS Matchmaking website told Jon Birger: You have no idea how big a problem this is.It’s a spiritual obligation and whether in this life or the next, we believe that ultimately for an individual to reach the highest degree of glory, one must enter into the eternal covenants made in the sealing ordinance.As can clearly be seen by many of the leaders of the church and those who are closely following this trend, the problem doesn’t simply make it harder for women to get married in the church but it also changes their behavior as well.The article points out “according to sociologists, economists and psychologists who have studied sex ratios throughout history, the culture is less likely to emphasize courtship and monogamy when women are in oversupply.Heterosexual men are more likely to play the field, and heterosexual women must compete for men’s attention.” How do we solve this “dating crisis” that we are currently facing?
