From their brunette hair to their dress sense, twin sisters Vicki and Valerie Darger have a number of things in common.

But the 42-year-olds share more than just their looks - they are both married to the same man.

The sisters are in a polygamous marriage with Joe, 43, who is also wed to a third woman - their cousin Alina.

The Dargers, who are fundamentalist Mormons from Salt Lake City, Utah, live together in a large family home and have 24 children between them.

Busy guy... but that's still just two wives, his first wive's ex had six. Makes you think how they set up their lives... it's a sexual and emotional challenge, not to talk about 24 kids... some alimony if you get a rocky divorce. :unsure2: Not my fantasy, even the bed level is "hmm maybe..."

I'm just dancing, 'till dropping...

He can only be legaly married to one as polygamy is ilegal in the USA.  

I can see the logic or potential advantages to this kind of lifestyle, and don't have anything against it, even though I would never do it myself.  Where I do protest this particular relationship is that the wives are all related.  That, for some reason, I find objetionable.

There is no such thing as fundamentalist Mormons.  Polygamy has been outlawed in the church for over 100 years.  Anyone caught holding to such practices are excommunicated.  These people have no affiliation with the official LDS church.   I get so tired of having to explain it.

I was just going to point these guys out. I'm glad someone else did. They, or rather their leaders, are a bunch of freaks. There are so many books on this church that will horrify you. The key thing to remember is that they are a very small group. Every religion has their freaks.

I have 2 very big issues with it. First, google "lost boys" and "FLDS." Second, because you can only legally be married to one person, every wife (with children) that is not his legal wife is, is considered a "single mom." Single moms are entitled to a lot of government aid like wellfare and food stamps. Not all take advantage of the system but many do...and it is very easy to do.

Well that's a great reason to impose lifestyles on other people.

I don't see anything wrong with adults choosing the way they want to live. It's not for me. I only have the emotional stability for one woman, but whatever floats their boat.

There are plenty of people in monogomous marriages that are miserable. If this makes them happy then so be it. I hate when governments or religions try to tell people how to live their lives. There are many ploygimous cultures some with plural wives some with plural husbands and they do just fine.


"I wish neither to possess, Nor to be possessed. I no longer covet paradise, more important, I no longer fear hell. The medicine for my suffering I had within me from the very beginning, but I did not take it. My ailment came from within myself, But I did not observe it until this moment. Now I see that I will never find the light.  Unless, like the candle, I am my own fuel, Consuming myself. "

I don't care how many people marry each other as long as they are consenting adults.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

Correct, they banned it when the US gov said they would not allow it.

Though there are still likely to be fundamentalist Mormons.
