Abstract:

"For decades, Utah's polygamous families have sought to remain out of sight and out of mind. Men in particular risk prosecution and economic blacklisting when their multiple marriages become known. But now, Joe, Alina, Vickie and Valerie Darger will open up their lives in this personal book-length account of their lives. An attractive, suburban family that look like your average American, they live in the suburbs of Salt Lake City with twenty of their children. In Love Times Three, we'll learn of their childhoods in polygamous families, their decisions to enter into this lifestyle themselves, as well as how Joe courted both Alina and Vicki at the same time and even married them on the same day. Several years later, Valerie, Vicki's twin sister, joined the family. They will explain how their relationships developed, the sister wife relationship, a chapter from Joe on what it means to love three women at one time, their weekly schedule (which wives work, who watches the children, who buys food for a household of over twenty!), and ultimately why they think laws that criminalize polygamy should change"--Provided by publisher.
