Wow! And you noticed they had more males than female. Hmm, we seem to have noticed different things.

I know couples within that age grade who have more female kids than male, my observation made me know their quest for having a male child was the reason why they even had more females...
she's right even here I stay more male kids my father inlaw has 12 grand kids 10 boys and two girls guys are actually more just that women tend to grow and develop faster

I find the emboldened very hard to believe. I mean, in a society that is mainly patriarchal, that places too much importance on the male child, I find it very unbelievable to believe.
don't oo my hubby needs a girl badly he even says he doesn't want boys again

what's there to comprehend? that people living outside africa don't give a flying fvck about marriage and family......and to you it's normal?


The post is about a prophecy in the Bible, do you think ppl that don't believe in the Bible care about this prophecy? Are we solely created for marriage?. My point it's the earlier African men remove the illusion from their eyes that women will continue to worship men the better for our society. Gradually women are realizing that they too are created for greater purpose than marriage and some one is here hoping that a prophecy of 10 women to 1 man will happen. Keep dreaming, when more women are growing intolerable of men filling divorce every second and you are here dreaming, very soon some men will look for women to coexist with them and they won't see, most men will end up being just sperm donors..and that's it, PS. I never mentioned that the fact the west don't give a Bleep about marriage is a good thing, you read btw the lines yet you can't comprehend, SMH

that's how we roll grin grin, we like to take away the hope of society miscreants .

well lezz said something about how the op has little to do with gender population ratio.

and yes wiki is to a point more reliable than a good number of information sources and yes again, your site (the one you included in your quote of me) It's erm..erm, "let me be linient ", It's not recognized.

But the heading and by also including a bible verse, had everything to do with world gender population.

....... In that day seven women will take hold of one man and say, "We will eat our own food and provide our own clothes; only let us be called by your name. Take away our disgrace!" Isaiah 4:1

Stop making a mockery of Christianity. This scripture is not apt in today's realities as the statistics prove there are more men than women even in Nigeria. China and India for example are on a gender ratio crisis. Isaiah 4: 1 is a continuation of the prior chapters 2 and 3. The house of Jacob had deviated from the Lord, taking advantage of the poor and the penalty was that God will remove every support from Jerusalem and Judah. So great would be the calamity that will befall Israel. Isaiah 3:25 Your men will fall by the sword, your warriors in battle...this leads into Isaiah 4:1 where the women would act out of character according to Jewish customs to propose marriage rather than be proposed to because of reduced population of men as a result of war.

Why are you making allusion to population?

And since when does the scripture became a dress to be amended to soothe the shape and weight of men?

Did the OP made any allusion to population?

nice post, that's exactly what we have been saying , in the bible scriptures you made reference to, 'there was a situation then that made women propose rather than being proposed to' .

1: in recent era, the op stated reasons why more women are likely to hold on to an available man (which he metioned how the present state of the worlds general economy negatively affects the fininacial stability of men in most communities ) , thereby leaving just a handful of men who are readily and willingly available for marriage.

2: and I dare to say that the same way the population of men was reduced drastically by deaths in the scripture you quoted, "that same theory " still plays a reasonable role in the unavailability of marriageable number men in recent times .

You've got to be kidding me. This was your opening statement:

These are the foretelling of the holy Book.
Are we already at the threshold of this prophesy or is it still an occurence we await?

By asking that question YOUR initial interpretation was that the prophecy is just now being fulfilled or it will be fulfilled in future. This a verse Nigerians typically insinuate differences in gender ratios as again proven by your statement. Whereas this prophesy in the scripture had already been fulfilled over 2000 years ago, and it is dead and buried. Your statement in bold counters the metaphorical emphasis you are trying to redeem yourself with. You goofed up!

This is what happens when you try swindle religion into secular issues. If you want to discuss faith, discuss it. If you want to discuss economic issues, discuss that. And stop making a mockery of christians like myself.

I agree to an extent and still disagree with this. I believe women are more likely to be unemployed than men, although more women seem to be focused these days on being independent, while some men would rather do fine boy like you pointed out. Most ladies I know are getting their education and even a side skill, how many guys do this? Yh, men are marrying late seeking financial stability which some might not find till their 40s and a woman most likely wld find someone ready to settle down during that period.

They paid their bride price because our Society still pays so much value on marriage. If this continues, marriage will gradually lose meaning. Just get someone to make your babies with, if interested, cest fini

So what's your view about this? Is this a menace of some sort. And what are the causes?
grin grin grin grin

Are you trying to say that women have proven to be more creative at achieving economic independence than men? grin

I saw no allusion to population in the texts you emboldened cheesy

7 women proposing to 1 man is no allusion to decrease in male population. Matter of fact, the following texts: we shall but our own bread is grounds enough for you to draw economic inference from there and not population.

Seems you didn't read the thread in its entirety before jumping at me.

And cease quoting Dcholeric along, if you have issues with his post make your point separately. I'm the OP, address the issues of the thread to me and his posts to him.

No one is uncomfortable. We worry for women.

Latest US statistics just pointed out that women have grown increasingly sad in same proportion to their economic rise.

So the modern woman is actually sadder than her counterpart of the last era.

You know it affects the bedroom, don't you?

That sounds so musical and sexy. You sing?

Ehm, to your point, having women walk long hours, join the rat race, office fights, promotion struggle, competing for office bonuses is not what most women are cut ought for.

They make the money and lost their womanhood, nowadays married women are transferred out of their husbands' state of residence. Isn't that evil?

It wasn't so in the distant past, a woman working in state or federal civil service is often exempted from transfers away from her husband. It's no longer so.

Why wouldn't they be sad?
