Teenage brides

KNOWN TEENAGE BRIDES of the prophet Joseph Smith, who was in his late 30’s when he married most of them:
Helen Mar Kimball, 14
Nancy M. Winchester, 14
Flora Ann Woodworth, 16
Sarah Ann Whitney, 17
Sarah Lawrence, 17
Lucy Walker, 17
Fanny Alger, 16-19
Emily Dow Partridge, 19
Maria Lawrence, 19
Melissa Lott, 19

COMMENTARY: I’m not sure what’s worse, a man who claims to be a prophet of God and insists he was commanded to marry multiple teenage brides when he is over 35, or the person who believes, excuses, and praises him. But what do I know? I’m just another apostate.
