Mormon polygamy dating sites
Polygamy made national headlines in two high-profile cases in recent years: In 2007, FLDS leader Warren Jeffs was convicted of sex crimes charges.
(Jeffs is estimated to have more than 50 wives and is reportedly issuing edicts from his prison cell.) And in 2008, authorities raided a Texas FLDS compound called the YFZ Ranch, and found six men guilty of child sexual assault.
While spouse collecting is still illegal in the United States, polygamy is apparently thriving – and not where most Americans might expect.
Polygamists in America The mainstream media tend to focus on polygamists who belong to the Fundamentalist Church of the Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints in Utah, Arizona, Texas and Colorado.

Now I am dating a Mormon, and he's the main reason I accepted to go on with the discussions, but now it seems as though becoming a Mormon isn't such an odd thing.
Reading the Book of Mormon and listening to what they believe has become a part of me.
I can't handle such a major change right now, and I still feel my church to be true as well.
I am a Catholic and became more spiritual these past few years.
My parents aren't that religious at all, but they come to church every Sunday because of me.
The church is sensitive about its historical relationship with polygamy, and entry into a polygamous marriage, even where legal, will result in mandatory consideration of church discipline and possible excommunication.
Since 1985 the church has provided a manual for parents to use in discussing sexuality with their children.
