Dear Eve,

"Isn't polygamy itself illegal? "

Of course.

The plural marriages are not state issued marriage certificate marriages. They are "celestial" marriages done outside the normal legal system. Oh, and if one of these men is thrown out of the system, the man's wives and children are reassignd to another man, without any need for state-sanctioned legal divorce.

Thus, all these "single moms" can get welfare benefits.

Seriously - read the Krakauer book.
