Not only were these young women raised in a polygamist group, they also were forced to go to Colorado to marry their cousins…first cousins.
Their father, his three wives and their cousins ventured across the Utah border into Colorado where it is legal for cousins to be wed and were forced into these marriages by their parents.
Now, one of the women is remarried (not to a cousin) and speaking out against cousin marriages, even starring on a Lifetime network series Escaping Polygamy.
Upon investigation, it turns out Colorado cousin weddings are not too uncommon. No offense to Colorado, but how does it feel to live in a complete and utter free-for-all?
