  1. It’s estimated that 45% of women ages 25–44 will be single by 2030, according to a study by Morgan Stanley. With the modern dating market, nearly half of women in their “childbearing” years will be without a companion. https://medium.com/hello-love/study-predicts-45-of-women-will-be-single-by-2030-1fbc99bad6a8 This is tragic and sad, IMHO. I'm sure there are many, many causes, reasons, both men and women being at least partially responsible. It seems correlated to what Isaiah prophesied, to me anyway. Isaiah 4:1 And in that day aseven women shall take hold of one bman, saying, We will eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel: only let us be called by thy cname, to take away our dreproach. Institute Manual (https://www.churchofjesuschrist.org/study/manual/old-testament-student-manual-kings-malachi/chapter-13?lang=eng) (13-23) Isaiah 4:1. “Take Away Our Reproach” Verse 1 of chapter four seems to continue the thought of chapter three rather than to begin a new thought. This phrase suggests that the condition mentioned in verse 1 is caused by the scarcity of men, a result of the devastation of war mentioned in Isaiah 3:25–26. The conditions under which these women would accept this marriage (“eat our own bread, and wear our own apparel”) are contrary to the Lord’s order of marriage (see Exodus 21:10; D&C 132:58–61). To be unmarried and childless in ancient Israel was a disgrace (see Genesis 30:23; Luke 1:25). So terrible would conditions in those times be that women would offer to share a husband with others and expect no material support from him, if they could claim they were married to him. - Our cultural hypersensitivity to polygamy seems to have influenced the Manual's content on this verse, no? - I could be wrong but I don't believe that women "eating their own bread and wearing their own apparel" is contrary to current Church teachings and doctrine. I'm not aware of this being a problem, is it? Is it contributing to the 45% of women ages 25–44 will be single by 2030? I don't know. - Isaiah's dualism, to me, seems to be prophesying about the Babylonian Captivity as well as the latter days trails, wars, tribulations, etc. (why else would Nephi include this chapter and verse?) If my view on his dualism is correct, does that not suggest that Isaiah 4:1 predicts and prophesies plural marriage's return (not only in the recent past, and NOT in the present) but possibly in the future?
