The dating game is rigged, but the problem is not strategic â it’s demographic. Multiple studies show that college-educated Americans are increasingly reluctant to marry those lacking a college degree.

Lopsided gender ratios don’t just make it statistically harder for college-educated women to find a match. 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.“And so today, at my consecration, I hold on to words of promise from the Bible, a reassurance that all this does not depend on me ‘the God who calls you is faithful: He will do it’.” The Bishop of Worcester, the Rt Rev John Inge, said: “This is a day we’ve been awaiting for a very long time and we are all just full of rejoicing.
I wanted to show that god-fearing folks steeped in old-fashioned values are just as susceptible to the effects of shifting sex ratios as cosmopolitan, hookup-happy 20-somethings who frequent Upper East Side wine bars. One of my web searches turned up a study from Trinity College’s American Religious Identification Survey (ARIS) on the demographics of Mormons.
According to the ARIS study, there are now 150 Mormon women for every 100 Mormon men in the state of Utah—a 50 percent oversupply of women.
Rev Williamson, who has brought so many legal cases against the Church of England in the past that he has been barred by the High Court, stepped forward during a crucial moment in the service when the congregation were giving their assent to the consecration, demanding permission to speak.
Rev Williamson, a parish priest from Hanworth, west London, made a name for himself as one of the most vociferous opponents of women's ministry in the 1990s when the first female priests were ordained.
A relative unknown, Rev Lane was not on the bookies' shortlists of female priests tipped to be selected to the historic role.
However, she is a very well-respected figure locally in the church.
Rev Lane went on to study theology at St Peter's College, at Oxford University, where she met her husband, and the pair were ordained together in July 1994, with Mrs Lane becoming one of the first female priests in the Church of England.
Over the last two decades she has served a number of parish and chaplaincy roles in the north of England in the dioceses of Blackburn, York and Chester.
He was publicly supported in his efforts by the Rev Ian Paisley, the hard-line Ulster protestant cleric, and later First Minister, who regularly denounced the Pope as the “anti-Christ”.
Rev Williamson’s intervention, stood as a vivid reminder of the tensions within the Church over many decades over the role of women in leadership.
The announcement came a month after the General Synod formally adopted legislation allowing women bishops.
