Andrea Sachs. “Polygamy Survivor Carolyn Jessop”. Time. Oct. 24, 2007 – “You write about how having children or having your husband sexually favor you is how a polygamist’s wife gets status.

Yes. That’s how I thought. I think that most of us in the community thought the same because it was pretty obvious that the woman he liked to have sex with was the one who could get shoes for her kids and the basic necessities she needed, and the other women in the family had to just basically go without.”
