When The Polygamous Turn Monogamous

Apr. 25, 2014

There are more than a couple of reality shows about polygamy on TV, and the issue is occasionally in the news here, because of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints communities in and around Colorado City.

But what happens when a polygamous family — one that is not a part of the FLDS church — becomes monogamous? Moroni Jessop was in a polygamous marriage with his wife Martha and his now-former wife, Temple Skousen. Moroni and Temple have separated, and Temple has remarried.
