Letter: Polygamists should move to polygamous nations
I watched with interest as I saw the latest news about "Sister Wives" on one channel and on another I saw one of the compounds of Warren Jeffs that’s going to be torn down.
Maybe some good people can make polygamy work, but it’s not ideal for most women and children. (It often causes second-class citizenship of women and poverty situations for them and the many children that often result.)
It is documented that the way the Browns have the money after going bankrupt is that they do this show! The other end of spectrum has the mentally disturbed people like Warren Jeff’s and many others we’ve heard of, and the terrible abuse. It isn’t a good lifestyle for most and won’t become normal in a democratic society. It has been common in some third world countries, and I guess maybe those wanting this lifestyle might like it there?
