    that's really tragic. Wow. What an awful thing to do.

    On the plus side they 'get out' of these communities, but it must be so hard to adjust

    Yep it would be incredibly difficult for them to adjust, it's like they have been brought up in a completely different world.

    So sad so not what I was expecting. I assumed they just didn't marry, stayed 'bachelors' - which is sad enough never having a wife & kids of their own, but I didn't think they'd be sent away

    I guess though the other men worked out what I was also thinking which is, if you have women sharing intimacy who may not be emotionally & physically satisfied sharing between 3 wives, and you have as many men around who are unmarried & will never marry... you're bound to have infidelity and not just infidelity, but divorce really... I think even brought up the way they are I think it's in our nature to want to be someone's one & only? Or is that a cultural thing? Maybe...?

    Either way... So so so sad & crap!

    I'm not saying its wrong but a lot of focus of FLED compound investigations are about if girls are being forced to marry. Do they investigate the lost boys as well


    I think the practicing polygamist that live outside a FLED compound are very different from them just from watching sister wives. Was the family that appeared on dr Phil living on a FLED compound?
