After fourteen years of marriage, I learned my true worth as a Mormon woman -- fifty dollars and a plane ticket for the hit man.
Marriage in a temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints seals a woman to her husband for time and all eternity. It gives him absolute power and authority over her. He alone will determine her worthiness to be resurrected. Without him, it is impossible to get into Heaven.
As long as women believe in these Mormon doctrines, there is no escape from a psychological prison.
The truth can set you free.
Within eight years of my marriage in the Salt Lake City Temple, I gave birth to six children; three survived. They became my salvation, as my marriage and entire belief system crumbled around me.
After I filed for divorce, my husband and father-in-law plotted to have me killed. There was only one way to save my life.
