“My goal is to persuade all believers in The Restoration to embrace the fullness of the Gospel of Jesus Christ by accepting, supporting, and practicing The Principle of Plural Marriage.”

What Is The Principle of Plural Marriage Joseph Lorin Taylor Living the Principle Rulon C. Allred Family Life Magazine

The Principle of plural marriage was first taught to the Prophet Joseph Smith in the earliest days of this dispensation and was later revealed in its fullness as a revelation recorded in Doctrine & Covenants Section 132.

From the 1830’s to 1890 members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints practiced the principle of plural marriage as revealed by the Lord Jesus Christ.

The Principle was first practiced in secret to avoid casting the spiritual pearls of this doctrine before the swine of the world. Rumors of Joseph Smith teaching plural marriage led in part to his martyrdom in June of 1844. The Principle was lived in secret by relative few of the church membership until it was publicly taught for the first time in October of 1852.

During the next 38 years Saints of God were expounded and even commanded to enter into this holy practice if they were able. Said President Brigham Young in regards to plural marriage:

“The only men who become Gods, even the Sons of God, are those who enter into polygamy.” – Journal of Discourses 11:269
