Truth As I Know It
Perhaps many leave the church because they gloss over the repetitive assurances that all women are divine. Divine is not synonymous with weak.
We must understand that polygamy is a calling. Even when the church did practice it there were only a few families who were asked to do so. I haven't read any accounts of multiple wives who felt subjected to become such. From what I have read, these women were happy and found joy in living this celestial law. Sister-wives fulfilled a woman's need for female companionship and her husband provided his love, support and let's be honest, physical needs. To me, polygamy makes solid sense.
