Polygamy Problems

Dec 13, 2012

I have recently read the website anti-polygamy.org, and discovered many issues polygamist groups face. Some of these include: domestic violence, cult mind control, religious manipulation, wedding vow breakers, arranged marriages, incest, underage marriages, welfare fraud, and father seduction.

Reading your posts makes me think polygamists tend to have some very bad trends going on in their society! It's crazy to think that things like this are still happening in our modern world. Some of the stories are such tragedies. Do you think that this is even more of a shock to kids who did not grow up in Utah and the Mormon culture?
