I'm reading a book by Carolyn Jessop called "Escape", it's essentially her autobiography. She was born into the FLDS and was forced to marry a 50-year-old man (who had three other wives) when she was 18. She had 8 children in a 15 year period, and endured physical and emotional abuse from the moment she was born to the moment she ran away in her 30's. It's a real eye-opener and a really great book, if you're into reading and that sort of thing.
(In case you don't know, the FLDS are a fundie group that originally belonged to the Mormon church. They separated from them a long time ago because they refused to stop the practice of polygamy. It is no secret that women have little to no rights in this group, and violence towards children is encouraged.)

the only problems i have with them is the way they treat some of the women, children and the arranged/forced marriages...
