Default One wife bad; three wives a nightmare?

Especially when they are related? *Tockalosh nods emphatically*

I know this is in the ghastly Daily Fail, but it's still a weird story about weird people who are part of a weird cult.

And why do they have to have so many children? To propogate their weird beliefs? And how are they paying for it all?

I'm fascinated by the wives. How do they manage to look so much better as middle aged women compared to when they were in their 20s? And after having 24 kids amongst the three? Shouldn't they all be hugely overweight with tits down to the ankles by now?

A woman's body does not automatically collapse on giving birth...

I just asked my husband if he would like to have a second wife. He looked absolutely horrified: "I've got enough on my plate with one of you. Why the **** would I want another?"

You are right - it's more of a total apocalypse

"soo many children" = male spreading his seed as much as possible , a survival of the fittest mindset.

A little fact checking might be in order. Plural marriages have been illegal in Utah since statehood. Nothing to stop them calling themselves married, but it would not be recognized by the state or U.S. government.

I guess it's just their way and everyone seems happy with the arrangement, the Mormons are fiercely family orientated, hence all the children. I am guessing the husband in question is mega rich
