I was just watching a rerun of Larry King tonight with the woman of the F*LDS compound in Texas. I vary between wanting to feel sorry for these women and their children and wanting to slap the snot out of them. Larry asked the 3 main women doing all the talking about where their husbands were. All they were saying was, "The children are gone, we only want the children back." So absolutely scripted. I'm finding it hard to be sympathetic to them, they sound like they're trying too hard to sound like they miss their kids. Just odd. IMHO they should have left the women and kids alone and taken the men off and thrown their sorry butts in jail. It's not women forcing underage men to get married and have their children. Something just stinks in this whole mess. Poor kids, I'm sure they miss their mothers, but I just don't think giving the children back is the answer either. What a mess.

The thing is, all the women were given the option to leave with their children, so they didn't have to be separated. But when you really look at it, the women are just as guilty as the men for letting the underage marriages take place. When it comes down to it, they had to know they were breaking the law.

Ditto. To your post and Eden's comment.
