One Man 29 Children and Six Wives Real Story documentary
One man and six wives
This is the home of one man Tom Green. One man and his six wives.
Linda, Shirley, June, LeAnn, Carrie, and Hannah. They have chosen to live in the desert two hundred miles from Salt Lake City in order to freely practice their fundamentalist Mormon belief. But the greater the number of spouses and children one humankind can have, the more elevated his status will be in heaven. I am twenty-eight.
Interviewer: And when did you get married to him?
I was married when I was fourteen. One man Tom was, uh, thirty-five. I had my mothers’ allow. Since they are visualized one man Tom was a very good man and and they could see his mettle that he was not just out to take advantage of a young girl.
He wanted to build a family and we really did sincerely genuinely enjoy one another. I met Tom when I was just fifteen years old and I wasted a month in his home working for his wife and I got to know his family and I became very close with Linda.
Interviewer: And who did Tom marry after you?
Tom marriage my mother after me.
Interviewer: How did you meet Tom?
My older sister was married to Tom. And, uh, I lived in southern Utah. And she produced him down to meet us. And. Concepts exactly went from there. I thought that he was strange. Cause he was an intruder when he came. Maybe that’s why I fell in love with him, because he was different. I don’t know. I matched Tom when my mom moved to Salt Lake and wedded Tom.
Interviewer: You were Tom’s step-daughter?
Yes. I was. I didn’t see him as a father figure for very long. I anticipate I fell in love with him right away. And, I have been married to him for nine years now. He let me know that he was serious. And if I was serious, was serious that I needed to let him know. And so I told him yes, I want to marry you. I want to be your bride. From the time that we firstly caressed, to the time that we were married was about two days. So it disappeared fairly rapidly. He reached over and took deem of my kuki-chin, and kissed me really nice.
Interviewer: And how long was that after your sister, Carrie, had married him?
Um. Two, three weeks. Two, three weeks. And then after that, I guess the next thought that happened, was, uh, they had a reception for Carrie and Tom. His family and everybody got together and a lot of their own families came.
And after the receipt, on the way back, Carrie, Carrie wanted me to marry Tom, too.
And so she says, why don’t you sit in the backseat with Hannah. Tom and I sit in the backseat. And then we were sitting in the backseat and it only, it just came up and I was looking at his eyes and I exactly desired his eyes, and I said, I want their own children to have seeings like yours.
And he says, I know how we can do that possible.
Interviewer: Tom is fifty-one years old.
His three eldest children from a previous wedding have left home. He now has twenty-six children aged twelve years and under, living off Greenhaven. When I first saw this property, I disliked it. It was ugly. It was dry and barren, and brushy. And I wanted someplace beautiful and quite. But we were forced to move our home, and we have now get onto parked somewhere and this was the only situate I could buy with nothing down. And so we bought it began raking all this brush off. And uh, these mobile homes are only temporary. They’re like tents. We moved one out, and it got destroyed. The gale came along and bulldozed the first dwellings we got. So we bought more old mobile homes.
But, in time, we’ll have these homes parked in a curve, all the way around here and all this in the middle is likely to be lawn and trees and heydays and little benches to sit on and a playground for the children. And they’ll be able to come out of any one of the the house and go into this inner courtyard area and we won’t have to worry about them wandering into the bushes with the coyotes and the snakes, And they’ll all be right here.
Interviewer: Tell us, though, why you choose to marry the wives so young?
I’ve married the partners that I have because those are the brides that God brought to me and, and informs me that these are the girls that I should marry. These girlfriends wanted to marry me, and demonstrated to me their extremely rare caliber of being capable of managing responsibilities at such an early age.
You know, a lot of people have blamed me, soundly, for marrying young girls and I agree that there’s hardly at that age that are ready for wedding, but these girls were.
These girlfriends have demonstrated that they genuinely were no longer not too young because they have succeeded in building a successful relation in union. Which beings sometimes twice their age or more have not been able to do.
Each of Tom’s spouses have a trailer where they have a bedroom in it. And, um, this is where quarry is. This is a kitchen, which is going to be turned into a walk-in closet. And, um, we’ll put up a wall. And um, isolate itself from my bedroom, which is right here. And it used to be our front room. It’s now my large-scale bedroom. This is where I invest my evenings when I’m not with Tom. Tom has his own bedroom, and each of his wives invest their darkness there.
This room is my bedroom. And um I invest all my nights here. Each partner, uh, comes here at their, according to their own planned and invests their time with me. Um, the only furniture I genuinely have in here is my armoire. You may notice there’s, there’s seven drawers, so, there’s room for two more wives there if things happen that way.
Interviewer: Do “youve been” seem promiscuous?
Promiscuous. You signify with the partners that I have? No. I’ve entered into solemn covenants with the brides that I have. We’ve had, each wife has been married to me by a very special and sacred religion ceremony. And so, um I don’t feel the least bit sinful or promiscuous in what I’m doing. My agreements and my alliances with each wife is just as sacred as it is among any person of any other religion. Down the passageway here, I have my nursery. And this is where Melanie and Elizabeth expend their meter. This is for Elizabeth and Melanie. And um, this bedroom here is a spare bedroom. We’re gonna compounds it with the bathroom bedroom and pass it all into a large bathroom.
And here is where the B unit girls spend their season. This is their bedroom. My reputation? Oh. Joseph. Interviewer: How old-fashioned are you? Eight. Interviewer: And what crew are you in? B Team. Interviewer: Who else is in B squad? Lauren, Mindy and Kelly, and Sarah.
Linda has Melvin. And then Johnny. And then Lauren. And then Phillip. And then Rebecca. And Rosanna. And those are Linda’s six.
And then Shirley had seven children with me. She had Chris. And then Hyrum. And then Sierra. And then Gerry. And then Alonzo, or Lonnie. And then she had the twinneds, Elizabeth and Melanie. And those are Shirley’s. And then let’s see, uh, next was LeAnn.
LeAnn’s first one was Kelly. And then she had Misty. And then Emerald. And then Hunter. They’re all appointed emblazons. And then, uh, next was Carrie. And Carrie had Bonnie. And “wheres” he? And then Wesley. And then Benjamin Franklin. And then Hannah has had two with me. She’s had Sharon. And Brigham Young. And those are all the children of each mom. All of us try to was pregnant at the same experience. Because we really like having children around the same age. Close together, like, four or five of them. And we’ve managed to do that several times. We’re down to an E team now, starting from A, and every one of those teams are just unique in their own little way.
And it’s a lot of recreation to have teams.
I think that most people when they assure plural union they see this horny old person that wants to have sex with young women. And that’s not one man Tom. That’s not him at all. It’s a woman’s choice. It’s a woman’s issue, you know what I entail? It’s more about our rights and our impunity than “its about” his. I signify, we get to decide when we’re going to have sex with him. He doesn’t ask. It’s not his plaza. It’s a young, it’s a girl’s neighbourhood to choose her husband. And, we decide to one man Tom. I opted him. I, he, you know, he didn’t ask me. He let me know that he was interested.
But, but it was me that went to him and said I’d like to be your wife.
one man Interviewer: Do you affection him very much? I do. I adore him very much.
I am very madly in love. My life has not been able to are similar and I would be a very lonely woman if I had to live without him. I wouldn’t, I wouldn’t wishes to do that. But, if I had to I would. I hope that God never has asked me to do that. Then I would be forced to find out how strong I truly am. Interviewer: Do you knowledge sharing him? Um No, I don’t mind sharing one man Tom. Um. He’s a very good man, and I, and I would feel very greedy and very guilty if I, if I had him all to myself because he is very capable and of loving other women and taking care of them and experiencing their needs and he’s a very good papa and I would feel, would feel very greedy restriction him to simply me and my children.
Ok, are you ready? Is everybody here? Hey, Hannah.
Sneak around and sit down over there. Carrie? Kelly, take over. I’m the old person. Children, are you ready to sing? Brigham, Brigham, let’s sing to mother Hannah. You ready? Ok, everybody. Glad birthday to you, happy birthday to you. Happy birthday, mother Hannah. Happy birthday to you. Sit up, stand up, stand up and take a submit, a bowing. Stand up, stand up, stand up and take a fore. How old-time are you now, how old-time are you now? How old-time are you, Hannah? How old-time are you now? Twenty-two.( Cheer) At last. Finally. Hey, Alonzo, wait just a hour. The what? Tell her. Tom: Say heavy, heavy hangover. Heavy, heavy hangover, thy poor front. What do you wish this person with a protrusion on the intelligence? I wish you a horse.
A horse!( applauds)one man Interviewer: The Green family have just thirty-thousand pounds a year to feed, clothe, and residence all thirty-three of them. Hmm … I wish you, what do I wish you? I wish you a dolly referred Emerald.( laughs) I wish you a horsey. Do you want a horsey? And a cow. And a cow? Ok. Interviewer: To retain their fundamentalist way of life, “their childrens” have little contact with the outside world-wide and are educated at home by their mothers.
I wish you a spouse that they are able to plow you like an angel. Each of my partners have their own independent personalities. And I encourage them to develop their identities individually. I, I find that I relate with each one of them differently. Linda is, uh, she’s very level-headed. She’s very mature. She’s very intelligent and has a awesome memory.
Just so amazing in her abilities that I find excessively fortuitous and blessed to have her as a partner in my union. And Shirley is as devoted and attentive as a baby as I have ever seen. I triumphed great respect for Shirley because of that.
Shirley’s just a lot of enjoyable to have around. And, um, LeAnn continues life really fun, for the family and for me. Besides that, I really like the lane she dresses. It, it’s just recreation to look at her tread by. I get a thrill just out of watching her saunter by. And um, Carrie is such a stalwart.
Uh, Carrie stuns me how she simply diligently, devotedly toils her nerve out for this family, without complaining, ever. In eight years of marriage with Carrie, we’ve never had an argument.
Carrie’s like the pillar that holds up the family. And uh, Hannah is uh, Hannah’s an amazing girl. She’s, she’s athletic and she’s strong and she’s competitive. And she’s extremely committed to this family.
It’s just really fascinating to me to see how she’s striving to do best available she can in this family. Interviewer: So one man have five brides that are all highly attractive, they’re young, they’re very lively, how do you fill them? Which aspect of enjoyment are you talking about? I, I, I, there was a truck driver one time that was talking to us on the CB radio, and, and was talking to my brides and detected they’re all married to the same guy. And he was fascinated, and so he, he asked me how do you, how do you do it, I’d like to get a bunch of wives.
And I said, well it’s very simple. All you were supposed to do, is be able to satisfy all their physical demands. And one man says, oh, yea yea, I can do that. But he was only thinking of their sensual requirements. He wasn’t thinking of all their physical wants. And I said, and you must be able to satisfy their intellectual motivations. And their psychological demands. And their spiritual motives. And if you can meet all of those demands, you’ll find all kinds of women that will come to you.
And he, when he actually thought about it, he said well I don’t want a bunch of brides that bad. You recognize, there’s a great toll to money. But um, Were you referring to the erotic? The physical?
Interviewer: Yea, yea, yes, and then as individuals. Interviewer: You know. There’s a big volume. Oh. All of their needs. Interviewer: Well, let’s talk about the sensual needs first. Interviewer: That’s a lot of fornication, isn’t it? A slew of, um, sexuality you’re having, ages five.
No , no, I, I, I have the average sum. And they’re the ones that go without. Listen. Stand up. Sit up. That’s enough. Sit back. LeAnn, made her out front. Sit back, please. Sit down.( whistles) Quiet. Are you ready? How many. Raise your hands and don’t say a word. If, if you want to go on the safari. Ok? Has Phillip gone to sleep already? Phillip went to sleep.
Wesley, do you want to do the safari? Ok, everybody. Get your grease-gun. Employ your grease-gun on your shoulder. Ok? Got your binoculars? Put those on. Now, open the door careful. Look outside. Is it all clear? Is it all clear? Ok. Le’ts go down the footpath. Our nights are planned on a rotational basis. Um, it’s not up to Tom at all. It is left up to the spouses. And we have all decided together that if it’s just one claim after another and in turn then it would be a lot simpler to keep track of and also to assistant enter into negotiations with, you know, jealousy.
And uh, when it is our darknes with one man Tom with six wives, it is totally up to the woman to establish whether or not she wants to be intimate with him or not.
Through the towering grass. Quiet, Misty. Ah, here’s a tall tree. Let’s climb it real slow. Prevent clambering. Don’t climb it fast. Interviewer: What was one man Tom like on your wedding night? So, of course I’d have to say he was experienced. So, he’d tell me and explain things. One situation he did is he would draw on my belly where the, the, what.
( titters) Back, rewind, be borne in mind that persona. Interviewer: He would what? Explain. Uh.( chuckles) Uh.( chortles) No! This isn’t, ok, let’s not do this part.
Interviewer: What, he’d draw on your belly and tell you where a child “wouldve been”? Uh, well.( exhales) Well, how it makes, actually. Like where the uterus is, where the ovaries are. And would explain. Just, explain it. The reproductive structure of the female. Get your binoculars. Search all around. What do you construe? A lion! Oh no! Rapid! Down the tree! In the water.
Swim the river. Speedy! Down the footpath! I experience our hut. Quick inside and shut the door. Slam! Hooray!( Clapping and encouraging) Interviewer: It’s unusual for a mom and daughter to be married to the same male. I’ve heard of a lot of them, but, most people think it’s wrong. I don’t see anything wrong with it, truly. It, it is kind of rare to have your mother wed your partner, but, in some areas and regions it’s not. Interviewer: But isn’t it strange to see your mom exiting off to spend a night with your husband? It may sound really strange expressed the belief that my mother was with my husband, but you have to realize that this is the way I feel life is expected to be lived.
And this is very deeply held religion for me and my family and through my whole childhood growing up I was schooled, taught the concentrations and the same reasons and the whys and the hows and and for me it was natural.
Interviewer: And what was it like to have two newborn sons on the same day by the same man and be mother and daughter yourselves?( laughs) She was real mad at me. Yea, effect I was firstly. I was gonna have the first assume. I had my baby in the morning and she had hers in the evening and, and, I merely moved over. She had hers in the same smudge I had quarry. Interviewer: And they were both Tom’s children? Yes. Yes, they were. Interviewer: What were your sons’ ties-in to one another? They were brothers to themselves and the latter are, they were sons to us and and they were also their own children was my brother and my child was her grandson. So it’s, I think there’s about every relation you can have. We are very closely related. Interviewer: Sam, the newborn on the left, was born with Down’s Syndrome. Gerry, the babe on the right, died in a attack 3 years later at the Green’s home.
one man not expired. He’s in heaven , not in expired. Um, a duet winters ago our home burnt down and Gary and Linda managed to get all of the children out and Gerry was the only one there is no way to get out.
And, and, he burnt. He died in the burn. And um, we all miss him. The darknes of the shoot I had represented plans to go to Salt Lake because I was a month prior to having my twinneds and, um, we weren’t sure if they were going to come early. And we had drawn plans to go to town that night.
And I had made a point to not say goodbye to my son because he gets so sad when I do. And several hours after going to bed that night we got a call on the phone and Tom refuted the call and it was Linda. She was at a neighbor’s home. And said, she had told him that, she said, Tom, the house burnt down And we got everybody out. And he exactly, his chest exactly sacrificed a exhale of relief and then she says, except for Gerry, which was my son, my fourth child.
And um, there were twenty-five children in the old-time homestead we were living in. Afterward on we found out that it was a wiring problem. Well, Gerry croaked right here.
And we used to placed members of the board over it, but now my mother, the person who is borned Gerry, she has his figure in a bit container. And his torso is ash now but they did find a couple bones and substance, so we had a funeral and I precisely didn’t like the barrage.( sigh) And Gerry died here. Interviewer: Do you come here often? No , not so often. We go to here more than his grave, though. I go to his grave more frequently. Hardly anybody’s gone to his grave. I got to help bury him. I …. I ….. simply didn’t like it. When that attack occurred, the offend of just knowing that my son did not get out I, I simply kept hollering no, I symbolize, in my soul you know when something happens that you just don’t ever want to have happen and you want to make it unhappen, but you can’t, you know? And then I contemplated, but it’s winter, and the snow’s deep.
And we don’t have any shelter.
Where am I going to employ all my children? Interviewer: Do you have enough time to attend to all your children? I don’t have enough time to attend to my children. I know that I’m, I’m in over my brain. But I’m too convinced that we can realise the time. For the last two or three years I’ve been saddled with the just trying to to covering the basic necessities and it seems like each time we start getting close then, then, a air comes and razes our homes or a wino operates into one of our the house and dismantles it. Or a fervor burns it down. Or interesting thing come along just when we’re ready to settle in and decides us back. And, you are familiar with, we’ll never quit. Interviewer: Why have you done this to yourself, though? Place ourselves in this position? What we’re doing is a very key and elemental part of our religious belief. And it’s tremendously challenging and commensurately it’s tremendously honoring. If it wasn’t challenging, it wouldn’t be fair and equitable to pour out these sorts of honors and approvals that we receive, so it has to be tough.
( Classical music playing) Interviewer: What are your dreamings for this place? To have a great big-hearted grassy neighbourhood for the children to play on and a covered sand expanse where they won’t get so sunburned and a waterfall.
And we’ll have a skating rink and in the wintertime it’ll be an sparkler skating rink. Move the frost over the plaster and there’ll has become a hearth in the center in it. Might be covered. And Self sufficient. Everything it is necessary to self sufficient. Graineries, and cows for milk, and obligate our cheese and yogurt and butter. And horses to extend research everywhere. With, with the different teams, take different squads at a time and get explore.
Interviewer: Tom used to be in the dry cleanup business. But now the family support themselves exchanging magazine subscriptions door to door in Salt Lake City. They stimulate the eight hour recall trip once a week. It’s an erratic business, but Hannah and LeAnn are often successful, especially when accompanied by a couple of children.
Tom: Now we’ll have you segment up as we generally do, work towards one another. I’ll be working elsewhere. You’ll have to take us around or make us figure out where we’re going. Tom: We’re not gonna stir much. We’ll simply do this one part right over there. What it is is the TV Guide is setting up a service route in your orbit. Where they deliver the TV Guide right to you through the mail every week. And as positive incentives to get the direction put together they’re offering what they call a$ special where that is….
( float off) Interviewer: LeAnn and Hannah manage to sell only one subscription, earning another eighty pounds for the family, enough to feed them for three more epoches. Tom is planning, hoping, to take another bride, to take a sixth wife. And so are we. We would love to have another sister partner. And uh, it’s I, I think it’s very exciting because it’s gonna be a brand-new pal, you know.
This is my courting shirt. I bought it two weeks ago so that when Candace comes to visit I could look nice.
My wives all told me, get, get something neat, so that you’ll make an impression. Interviewer: Who is that Candace? It genuinely tickles me that my wives was very concerned about me making a good notion on her because they like her and they hope that she’ll choose to join our family. But Candace’s father is my adopted son. It’s a religion affair that we have. And, though we’ve known Candace since she was young, it’s only lately, uh, in fact after she revolved sixteen that she began to show an interest in the family in a different way than she had before. She has, uh, she’s begun to flirt with me a little and, uh, it’s kind of fun.
( chortles) Oh, he’s, you are familiar with, he’s off in the clouds. He’s, he’s, fallen in love. He’s, it’s that feeling that you get when you can’t think of much else except the person that you’re in love with and that you want to be with and and so that’s what we entitle la-la district. Interviewer: Are you allowed to fall in love with anyone else? Um…….
No, I mean, am I allowed to fall in love with anyone else? No, we believe that, that uh, that the status of women should only be involved with one man and adoration one man and uh, that’s, that’s how it should be.
That’s how it labours the best. Interviewer: The Green family prepares for Candace’s visit. There’s a lifestyle on offer here, as well as a wedding. When a potential new partner is get interested in our lineage it drives best available when she wastes period with the partners and the children and, and gets to know us, us firstly because, you are familiar with, that will be a very big part of her life.
It’s, it’s important that, uh, that she does get along with us and does have a relationship with us because she’s also marrying us and not only Tom. Interviewer: Candace, tell us a little bit about yourself. Myself. Ummm …. Interviewer: Who are you?( laughs) Uhhhh( titters) What, what, what, what do you want me to say ?? Interviewer: Tell us where you live, how many brothers and sisters you’ve got, how old you are? Um …. I’m Candace McKinley. And I live in Manti, it’s, in central Utah.
And I have thirteen brothers and sisters. And I’m sixteen. When she’s seventeen then I would, uh, be able to take her as a partner without having serious problems with the law. Even though this is the, this lifestyle is still illegal here in Utah, uh, this girl’s quite full-grown, quite capable.
And She has a personality where she smiles all the time and that’s really, really fun to be around her. I suspect if, say, Tom, is falling in love with other women then I guess we’re all gonna have to deal with a kind of gumption of jealousy watching him fall in love again, but at the same hour, we are all involved in this new rapport at the same period when he is building a relationship so are we.
It simply moves you feel good inside, knowing that he’s falling in love again and that we’re gonna have an addition to our pedigree. Person that’s going to have more children and new relationships. Its, it’s, it’s exciting. Interviewer: Why aren’t you apprehensive? Well, I …. Because it’s what Tom craves. Um. And what he craves is what I want.
And, I might get resentful. I don’t know, I’ll try not to, because I think it’ll just cause me more affliction and sadness than there needs to be. But,( ambiguous) Interviewer: You ensure, I visualize the majority of members of us very difficult to share somebody else. It’s very painful to share someone. And it’s very interesting that you don’t. So I want to know why you don’t. Well, the reason I don’t is because, because I adore Tom and I, I like his brides and I, I crave for them what’s gonna prepare them glad. And that sees me joyous. So where’s the hammer? I don’t know. I defined it down. Lauren, did you take the mallet? Goose! Lauren.
Give me the hammer, please. No. Yield me the hammer. Ok, here it is. This is my son, Lauren. He’s a practical joker. Now give me my mallet. Quick. I can’t!( giggles) Interviewer: What do you have to offer a young girl then? A most likely interrogation may be, what does a young girl have to offer me? Yes, she can give me children.
But there are plenty of young girls that can give me children. These wives have all rendered me children. Whatever a young girl has to offer me, I already have. There, I can’t think of often of, of, of much at all that a young girl could give me that I don’t already have with the wives I have. What can I offer her? The same concept that these madams have gotten. That’s this family. It’s not just me. It’s not me they buy when they, when they, they buy the whole parcel. To find a girl who are able fit in a relationship like this and progressing well within their own families like this is really rare. It has to be somebody who is secure in themselves.
When I read a girl like that, uh, I want to at the least get some exposure of my family to her, and vice versa, so that, should the Lord decide to set flavors in her centre for us, and employed the relevant recommendations in her recollection that she could be part of this, then at the least the possibilities of “il be there”. Emmy. Emerald, you must stay up here on this side.
Don’t go down past those bushes or I can’t see you. It may be strange to our children if their father-god marries a woman that is close to their age. When I wedded Tom, he had children my age. So it was a little different. They’ll, they’ll possibly won’t, uh, they probably won’t baby them like the other mothers wil.
But I think that they could must be upheld and they could be friends. Interviewer: Do you have a girlfriend now? Yes, I do. Interviewer: Can you tell me about her? Yea, she’s absolutely elegant. She’s very smart, and friendly. She reads very fast. I don’t know anybody that can read that rapidly. And, she, she’s a really good placard musician. She plays posters a lot. And I certainly believe she likes me.
But not everybody thinks that. Interviewer: Do you like “ve been with” her? Yes, it’s, it’s pretty enjoyable. But sometimes it gets a little embarrassing, because everybody tantalizes me.
Interviewer: Why do they pester you? I don’t know. It’s just that Chris and some of my other brothers they just really don’t understand what it’s like and so they tease me about it. I predict. Interviewer: Can you show us a picture of your girlfriend and tell us what her name is? Yes, I only got this painting. She gave it to me. Her name’s Candace. Interviewer: Who gave you that paint? Her. She gave it to me. Interviewer: Does she like you? She has a picture of me, right by her bed, extremely. Well, I anticipate she likes me. She certainly carries it. Interviewer: Do you worry that his center will be broken? Yes, I’m concerned that it could be.
But, uh, but I think that if he enjoyed her enough that he would want her to do what she craved and be happy. You had a joker? Interviewer: Is it mystifying sometimes to know how to be with a girl? Mm-hmm.
I think, you are able to, tell her shape her own decisions and be friendly around her, and I just feel like you should stimulate them feel desired and necessary. That’s kind of how father ordinances around my mothers and they just love it. If I do wed a young partner again, uh I would restrict her sovereignty over the older children until such experience as I felt that she had the experience and the maturity to effectively supervise them. And plainly the time “il come when” uh, the time may come when I have a wife that’s younger than the children that we have here.
one man Interviewer: And just how do you think you are children understood that their leader could have sexual relations with someone who is younger than they find themselves? How are you going to face that in the future? The children that I have ought to have brought up in a plural lineage where their leader has numerous spouses and uh.
I aim my children understand about sexuality and how it wields and what it’s for. And that it’s confined to the bonds of union. And They understand that the road that we have more children come into this family is that the mothers and I have sexual relations. They don’t think anything of it. And if I had another bride , no matter what her age was they would understand that I would be having children with her and that sex is exactly what you do children. I disbelieve gravely they’d generate it any conception. I really do. Interviewer: How do you deal with the sort of charges that could be leveled against you as by perhaps applications? In Britain you’d be prosecuted for child abuse for wedding girls age fourteen.
Hmm And how would I respond to that? For about ninety-five percentage of the recorded history of humankind girls got married when they were ready to have children physically.
I think divinity had a pattern there. And, I think if it’s a mistake for a girl to get married when she’s able to conceive children, then the error is God’s for seeing them able to be babies long before they were ready. It’s not God who obligated them physically able to have children before the latter are mentally able to handle it that’s at fault.
It’s our society’s. Our western society’s that stopped devising young men and women for the position of a family and began altering that to preparing them to go to work in the workplace. One man Interviewer: In Utah, it is still illegal for a humankind to have sex with a woman “whos not” recognized to be his wife. The powers do not acknowledge religion plural unions as lawful. Interviewer: Are you likely to be arrested? Right now there’s a great pushing by an anti-polygamist group to get me apprehended.
