I think we may have made it harder for our girls to marry.

girls2We have striking children, and that is coming from the totally unbiased opinion of their mother.  Attracting a man is not hard for any of them, but attracting the right man is going to take a miracle.  Fortunately I believe in miracles.

Let me show you why this may be a bit of a challenge for these girls:

1- Marry within the faith: LDS members make up roughly 2% of the US population.  Let’s say that 1/2 are male, and out of those males 1/4 are single and marriageable (I think that’s generous)  So that leaves .0025 of the population.

2- Return Missionary (RM):  All my girls feel it’s important to marry a young man who has made the sacrifice to serve a mission. About 38% of LDS young men serve missions…=.00095 of the population of LDS young men.

3- Not addicted to pornography – according to one site it claims 12 to 70 percent of LDS young men visit a pornography site at least once a month, we’ll say 20% for math’s sake.  =.00019.

4- Now comes the tricky part, because the above stats are what every LDS girl dreams of.  Will all the vegetarian LDS RM young men who are not addicted to pornography please step forward?   Oh yeah, and be open minded about not vaccinating children and possibly having a home birth!

Let’s crunch these numbers:

Number of LDS 15,082,028 (that’s world wide – we won’t limit them to US citizens).  If 1/2 are male (7,541,014) and 1/4 of those marriageable (1,885,253) and  RMs (716,396.33).  We’ll take those addicted to pornography out leaving 143,279.3 eligible young men.  I found that 10% of the population is vegetarian, so we’ll use that number.

14,327 that’s how many my girls have to choose from…world wide!  I’m assuming those that eat vegetarian are more open to looking into alternative to most modern medicines.

My son, David, was blessed to find a young woman who was open to seeking a healthier lifestyle.  She delivered their son at home and now are eating plant based.

So I guess the girls may be able to find a young man willing to learn and adopt their way of life.

Hmmm what are the chances of that happening?

    Your girls really are beautiful!! What a great picture. And look at Tawny – blonde!!! She’s gorgeous. It’s difficult to find a spouse who upholds your same standards, but we all did it. 🙂 I’m sure your girls will too, in their own time. You have a really great family.
