First of all – I love this series! Thank you so much for continuing to do it.
Second! My great-great grandmother (an early Mormon) was named Vilate. She pronounced it Vuh-LATE. Not sure if that’s helpful (or a universal pronunciation), but I thought I’d throw it out there!
Thank you for all of your hard work and research! You are awesome!
I second Liz’s pronunciation. Vilate Kimball is my great, great, great, great grandmother. We have always pronounced it Vil-LATE with a hard A and silent E.
I’m so glad to hear a somewhat happy ending to the apologetic story I heard as a child of the 14 year-old wife. To know her name, her thoughts, and her journey is exactly as you say – important. I’m so glad she got to marry a man she wanted and have the joy of children. What a strong woman! Thank you.
F*ckin’ amazing issues here. I’m very happy to look your post. Thanks so much and i’m looking forward to touch you. Will you kindly drop me a e-mail?

Thanks for expressing your ideas. I might also like to mention that video games have been ever before evolving. Modern tools and enhancements have made it easier to create authentic and interactive games. These entertainment games were not as sensible when the actual concept was first of all being tried out. Just like other styles of electronics, video games as well have had to develop by many generations. This itself is testimony to the fast development of video games.

I absolutely love your site.. Excellent colors & theme. Did you build this site yourself? Please reply back as I’m attempting to create my own blog and want to find out where you got this from or what the theme is called. Thanks.
Good site you’ve got here.. It’s difficult to find excellent writing like yours these days. I seriously appreciate people like you! Take care!!
This web site truly has all the information and facts I needed concerning this subject and didn’t know who to ask.
I’m amazed, I must say. Rarely do I encounter a blog that’s both equally educative and amusing, and without a doubt, you have hit the nail on the head. The issue is something not enough men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy that I stumbled across this in my hunt for something concerning this.
The next time I read a blog, I hope that it won’t disappoint me just as much as this one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, however I actually believed you would probably have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something you could possibly fix if you weren’t too busy searching for attention.
May I just say what a comfort to uncover someone that genuinely understands what they’re talking about on the web. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important. More people should read this and understand this side of your story. It’s surprising you aren’t more popular because you surely have the gift.
I could not resist commenting. Exceptionally well written.
An interesting discussion is worth comment. I do believe that you ought to write more about this topic, it may not be a taboo subject but usually people don’t speak about such topics. To the next! Kind regards!
I love it when people come together and share thoughts. Great site, stick with it!
Pretty! This was an incredibly wonderful post. Thank you for supplying this info.
Spot on with this write-up, I really believe this site needs much more attention. I’ll probably be back again to read through more, thanks for the advice!

Aw, this was an extremely nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to create a superb article… but what can I say… I hesitate a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
I love your series. I understand your not wanting to call someone a Pedophile, but if this isn’t it….it is a close cousin. The father connection seems just a creepy. I have learned we had polygamy in our family in the early days of the church. This is not what I was told as a child. I was even told it was only done in Utah for a short time to protect the women. Mind boggling. Just because “other men” were doing it, does not mean it was “ok” to me….it just makes is all the more creepy…..OTHER Men we doing it. Scary. You make it sound like it is ok to do since everyone was doing it when in fact just the opposite is true as you continue with the census report and the average age of female and marriage. I am not sure what narrative you are trying to spin….but it does not hold water. It was wrong. You know it. I know it. The whole world knows it. You don’t marry little girls. Shameful for anyone thinks this is ok. And stands behind the church while these awful things were going on. Hidden to the rest of the world. Have you seen a 14 year old girl. Hung out with them. Can you imagine convincing these girls to marry is wrong and you know it. She wanted to go to dances….not be married. She was a little girl. She was in bed for months (depression would be my guess) My great great grandmother was also married at 14 to a man in his mid 40’s. Glad I am learning the truth about this religion and its disgusting history.
