One of the most misunderstood aspects of the history of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints is its practice of plural marriage during the nineteenth century. In the twenty-first century members of the Church and those outside the faith have a hard time comprehending why early Latter-day Saints agreed to a marriage pattern so foreign to their traditional Victorian values. This book looks at the reasons they did so.
In addition, it answers some of the common questions about Mormons and polygamy. How long did the practice continue? How many wives did Mormons have? Did all Mormon men marry multiple wives? How did men, women, and children feel about the practice? Scholar and historian Jessie L. Embry examines the answers to these and other questions.
