Husband Scarcity’ has become one of the challenges faced by many young girls today. If you go to prayer houses, majority of the intentions are prayer for a life partner. And this calls for concern.Casting our minds back to the time of our mothers and grandmothers, was there really much of a ‘Husband Scarcity’ problem? Or, maybe there were more men than women then, or there were adequate corresponding numbers of both genders. Maybe then, the women had values and were prepared to build a home and not park into a built home. Then, once a young man comes of age and can at least feed himself and his wife, he goes out in search of a wife and the woman really appreciates him and helps him to build a future.
 We created what we now see as ‘Husband Scarcity’ for ourselves. Today, the reverse is the case. Ask an average girl to define her dream husband; you get things like “he has to be tall, handsome, fair, and rich, own a house at least, and be presentable,” and then she adds “God fearing” in order not to sound so worldly. Then, check the number of girls around you and the number of men that meet that standard, and you will see the problem.
You hear girls say, “I cannot suffer in my father’s house and then go and start suffering with a man.” What a wonderful dream! What if from the beginning, you have everything you want and there is no suffering, and later in the marriage, the table turns around, and then comes suffering? Will you run away? No one prays for suffering, but it is good to start small and end big, than start big and end small.
The problem is that the description majority of girls give of their ideal man is virtually the same. When 50 girls want the same kind of man and the man that fits what they want is just one, and that man can only pick one, then, what becomes of 49 others? They simply start lamenting of “Husband Scarcity”.
Another irony of our time is that it is hard, due to the face of our economy to find a man who is of marriage age who possesses all those things these ladies want, legally. Except those involved in pen or internet fraud! Even the number of those in pen and/or internet fraud is not enough to match all those searching for already made husbands.

True!every gal want a well to do ,but forgetting what's important is love,care, understanding and God fearing, a guy that isn't well to do but loves the woman,with prayers and faith, hardwork he can be more than a well to do person in the future...but most girls want the present, they don't care to know what the future holds.. just peeping!!

No woman want to marry a man who is managing, they want rich and handsome guy which is rare now. and with the case of woman living their husband to another man most men don't wanna experience it so they prefer being single till when God pick their call

God didn't create a man without a woman so mostly it from the women who claim that they have to marry the rich men. So they keep waiting.

Why men no go they scarcity, for my own concern rate of women pass rate of men of nowadays. People are given birth to female more than male. And secondly, women of nowadays don't want to work hard with men. All they want is ready made men and that is scars, rate of poor men pass rich men. So women work really they una hand to do.
