Trapped in marriage by cult leader

Woman says she felt "trapped" in marriage arranged by a cult leader.

I ran across this article in the Warren Jeffs case, the notorious Mormon cult leader that has been arraigned on charges of assisting rape.

Here's the article.

I am just surprised they can't charge him for embezzlement of state funds, or assistance of underage marriage. I guess the current accusation makes the strongest case.

I've heard of arranged marriages in our former cult, has anyone in the cult, perhaps mostly first gen, felt trapped in an arranged marriage by cult leaders?

Speak now.

I think that the cult was more in the business of breaking up marriages and families "for the lords work", rather than keeping them together.

From "One Wife", 10/28/72:

"9. BUT GOD'S IN THE BUSINESS OF BREAKING UP LITTLE SELFISH PRIVATE WORLDLY FAMILIES TO MAKE OF THEIR YIELDED BROKEN PIECES A LARGER UNIT--ONE FAMILY! He's in the business of destroying the relationships of many wives in order to make them One Wife--God's Wife-- The Bride of Christ! God is not averse to breaking up selfish little families for His glory, to make of the pieces a much larger unselfish unit--the Whole Family--the entire Bride --the One Wife instead of many wives!"(reply to this comment

Your right, now that I think about it. So many marriages fell apart due to Leaders taking husbands for the "Lord's Work", causing all kinds of relational and financial problems for the field homes. (reply to this comment
