I read a book the other day that got me to wondering about polygamy. The book, Predators, Prey, and Other Kinfolk: Growing Up in Polygamy by Dorothy Allred Solomon is a true account of a woman who grew up in a polygamous family as the 28th of 48 children with one father and 7 wives.
I know this is a religious thing, but why would anyone want to live this kind of life? Is it that the men think of themselves as so super important that they need to have many subservient women serve him? And what is with the women who would willingly share a husband and all of those children?
I apparently don't "get it". But the book was really interesting. Stumble It! JBlog Me
