We're a young couple (I'm 29 and she's 25) in Southern Utah's red rock country. We are life-long members of the mainstream LDS church, but have believed in plural marriage since we were both teenagers. We've been married for 7 years. I recently finished grad school and started my professional career in healthcare. We want to find a good woman to join us in building an earthly and an eternal empire. We know we'll lose our membership in our church for this, but we believe in it. It'll be worth it for the right woman. If nothing else, we're open to talking and discussing experiences, interests, and beliefs. We're libertarians, so we're pretty open-minded and non-judgmental ;)
About the person I want to meet
Probably one of the most important qualities to us is honesty. We don't like catfish. Please don't be one. If you're honest and we feel a connection with you, we'll get along famously. If you're honest and we don't feel a connection, we'll certainly be friendly. If you're dishonest and we find out about it, don't expect to hear much more from us. Just be honest and we will be as well :)
I shared this story a couple of years ago on Facebook. It showed up in my memories for the day and I decided that this was a group that might really appreciate it. Maybe some of you out there who also have a love of Mormon history will find it humorous.
Back in the 1880s a group of federal marshals rode into the small town of Lehi, Utah looking to arrest some "cohabs," the term they derisively used for Mormon men living in plural marriage. They stopped their horses in front of the home of a particular man they were searching for and dismounted and found that the only person at home was a young boy. In hopes that in childish innocence the boy would betray the location of his father or another wanted "fugitive," the marshals asked the boy if he knew where any polygamists might be. He was silent for a long moment as he stood scratching his head and pondering their question. Suddenly his eyes brightened and he nodded his head in affirmation that he did indeed know where a polygamist was hiding. The marshals were ecstatic and quickly followed the boy around the house and to the barnyard out back. They ever-so-cautiously crept up on the barn and the boy slowly pried the door open with the expectant marshals ready to pounce on their prey. Once the door was open, the boy proudly pointed out the fugitive and there with his frightened wives was the polygamist...a rooster.I shared this story a couple of years ago on Facebook.
