With all due respect to your vast knowledge, doesn't verse 24:33 clearly defines a very simple and strightforward rule: If one is unable to find a match one does not get a certificate to resort to the forbidden? Please advise how we can use this Ayat to declare taking multiple wives is Haraam? It can be applied to what you say only if we are first able to confirm that polygamy or more specifically, polygyny is Haraam.
Hasn't Allah (SWT) clearly defined between what is lawful and what is not? Then did our Creator, Who is All Wise, All Knowing not know what a big problem polygamy would become due to falsified history that would be written some 300 years after The Exalted Prophet's death? I fail to understand why He left this topic in obscurity; and that is the sole reason I go on arguing on this topic, so I may be able to clear myself on this. Otherwise I gave up N2I years back (to whatever extent I could find the truth.)
