Don’t expect the mainstream
Mormon church to reinstate official
polygamy anytime soon
Either way, we’re fairly certain you won’t see the mainstream Mormon church seek to officially reinstate polygamy anytime soon. Why? Pure pragmatism. When founder Joseph Smith started polygamy, he was a libidinous young man in his 20s. Today you don’t get to be a Mormon prophet until you’re well into your 80s. Big difference in appeal, drive, stamina and, we suspect, capability.
