A Different Kind of Women's Mission Guild

From Kristin's reading: When John Calvin decided to marry, he put together a committee in Strasburg (where he had gone in exile from Geneva) to find him a wife. Their attempts failed several times.

I wonder what his reasons were for employing a committee? I can't but wonder at the "failed attempts."

Finally he noticed the widow with 3 children of a former Anabaptist he had converted and was wed to Idelette de Bure.
