That's correct...Jeffs was practicing polygamy with young Women.... Girls in my estimation, and he deserves to be in prison.

Another point worth mentioning is the mainstream LDS stopped practicing polygamy in 1890 when Utah established statehood.

The sole reason for practicing polygamy was to rebuild the church body after the Spanish/ American war
nearly decimated the Mormon male population.

The Wives of the men chose the other wife or wives, and it wasn't a glamorous lifestyle or freewheeling orgy like people might imagine.

Mark Twain wrote about it once... He said while passing through their territory he noticed those were about the ugliest women imagineable, and that they were done a favor, Lol.

Let the adults run their personal lives as think is best for them as. As long as it costs taxpayers no money, and hurts nobody, it's none of my business.
Marriage is being made a mockery for no better reason than to make some of our tv shows. Polygamy is no worse than much of what is allowed.

Geese are monogamous. I am monogamous. They can do what ever they please. I would have to say that why on earth would I want twice or more times of all the challenges. I love my wife and take good care of her. I did the same with my children when they were children. You have to admit a good marriage is a lot of work and sacrifice. I don't think I could do my duties as a husband and provider with more than one. The grass is always greener but I think that depends on time of year and which side of the fence you are on at the time. Probably taste the same or worse after while too.

"The sole reason for practicing polygamy was to rebuild the church body after the Spanish/ American war

Polygamy was being practiced by Mormons long before the Spanish American War.

I want to know if due to the marriage equality act , all states having to recognize the marriage of any other state If I marry a second wife in UT does my insurance company in WI have to then insure her on my family plan.


America only has one issue, we have a Responsibility crisis and everything else stems from it.

For those who approve of polygamy...I wonder what the thought would be if a daughter decided to be the 15th "wife" of a polygamist. I suspect the later wives would be at the bottom of the pecking order and could really have a problem with self esteem. Maybe constant self sacrifice is a step on the stairway to heaven. There has to be some interesting psychology going on there.

I was thinking if I had one that was a lawyer, one a doctor, one a teacher, one to do the accounting, one a banker, one a broker, one to take care of the kids, and one to take care of the house, and one to cook,I could hunt and trap all the time and Eagleye could rent his two to me to skin and flesh. Now that would be the "Life of Riley"
