Re: Women and Plural Marriage -- the Great Re-Awakening?

This is one of the most twisted, wicked things I have ever read. If you really think this I pity you. Satan was called the accuser of the brethren. That somehow he's convinced millions of women to have such a selfish, self-victimizing, shriveled, and judgmental attitude is horrifying and hellish. T...

Re: Women and Plural Marriage -- the Great Re-Awakening?

I think it might help men to imagine what it would feel like to be raped, to understand how sex can feel for a wife who doesn't enjoy physical intimacy. Women can more easily relate to rape victims because many of them have felt used for the man's pleasure during sex. So probably most men, unless t...

Re: Women and Plural Marriage -- the Great Re-Awakening?

I have sat on the church court of a man whose wife told him after the second child that that was the last time they would have sex. He was excommunicated for adultery. I told the other men there that I thought she should have been excommunicated as well. Because we don't have the right as spouses t...

Re: Women and Plural Marriage -- the Great Re-Awakening?

It is basically just monogamy with a verbal baggage clause “Baggage clause”? Look Hyloglyph, thanks, but you’re going to have to do a little better job of explaining it than that, and I know you can. If we’re going to have to “negotiate legal hurdles, church hurdles, and doctrinal hurdles,” we bett...

Re: Women and Plural Marriage -- the Great Re-Awakening?

So here's a scenario to imagine: Pretend that a man breaks into your house while you're asleep, ties you up and tells you that unless you let him do whatever he wants with your body, he will drag your wife and children in the room and torture and kill them before your eyes. You don't have much choi...

Re: Bishop says the church is preparing to house members at youth camps

Tired of you misquoting him. That is not what he says. He said he only shared 40% of what he saw. Meaning there is a whole lot more that happened that is not in the book. Big difference. Ah, you are correct. It has been so long ago that I listened to that audio. I pulled it up and fast-forwarded th...

Wow, I don't know if it's actually loco, but this thread has been going crazy, and my mailbox has completely blown-up, especially the last couple days. There is no question that the discussion is definitely starting to hit some serious nerves. Because obviously some people are still really uncomfor...

Re: Women and Plural Marriage -- the Great Re-Awakening?

That's quite the accusation and suggestion. I love my husband and he is a wonderful man that I have no intention of cheating on. We have great wonderful sex and are in love with each other, and strive to love each other the best we can. We both hope to stay pure and chaste, and have an eternal marr...

Re: Women and Plural Marriage -- the Great Re-Awakening?

I have seen this before I’m afraid. When I was young and dumb, like 18 to 22 range, I got tricked/seduced by married women on a couple different occasions and didn’t realize it till months later. Well I didn’t get fully seduced but they were trying and they got me over to their house and it was all...

Respectfully Sarah, the details of your story are changing. Just over the course of this thread. So I don’t know which parts of your story are true. I’ve read multiple versions from you now.

Re: Women and Plural Marriage -- the Great Re-Awakening?

Sounds logical to me if plurality is what a husband is arguing for. A husband wants a a second wife so he can have more sex, and a wife wants another husband so she can feel more love. What's the problem with that? Did you miss this whole thread? Polygamy isn’t something the guy is after just for m...

Obviously, there is plenty one might say about all of this, but I am only going to make a couple of brief observations. The first has to do with Sarah’s comment that this whole discussion is just a bunch of whiney men b!tching about how they are being victimized by women. The second has to with the...

Re: Women and Plural Marriage -- the Great Re-Awakening?

I can only speak from my perspective, so I will. Men do not feel sorry for themselves in not being able to enjoy orgasms. The drive to have sex for a man is about fulfilling that drive with his wife. When this can't be done, it feels like something is wrong, and there IS. The word marriage means to...
