Multiple husbands = Polyandry. Unions without the knowledge or consent of the husband, in cases of polyandry. These married women continued to live as husband and wife with their first husband after marrying Joseph. A union with Apostle Orson Hyde’s wife while he was on a mission (Marinda Hyde). A union with a newlywed and pregnant woman (Zina Huntington). Threats that Joseph would be slain by an angel with a drawn sword if they did not enter into the union (Zina Huntington, Almera Woodard Johnson, Mary Lightner). Unions without the knowledge or consent of first wife Emma, including to teenagers who worked with Emma in the Smith home such as the Partridge sisters and the Lawrence girls. Promises of salvation and exaltation for the girls and/or their entire families. This paragraph in The CES Letter presents a rapid-fire series of half-truths and misrepresentations.
