The need for The Primer became evident after government officials and social service providers heard the story of Carolyn -- a seventh generation polygamous wife with eight children. Carolyn was 16-years-old when she became the fourth wife of a 50-year-old man. She says she grew up in a society based on secrecy and survival. Even though it was the only life she had ever known, she said three factors persuaded her to leave: her husband was violent and abusive; she feared her 14-year-old daughter would be forced to marry an older man; and teenage boys were now going from home to home to determine whether or not a family was righteous -- if the teen deemed the parent wasn't righteous, their children could be given away to someone else. Carolyn said she was being watched at all times so she fled at 4 a.m. in a minivan without insurance, without a license and with only enough gas to drive three miles out of town. She told her children they were going to get a family portrait. When her children finally figured out what was going on, one child said, "Mother is taking us to hell." It didn't get any easier when Carolyn went to the government for assistance. She said no one was quite sure how to help. "I just didn't fit in the system," said Carolyn. Today she is still struggling to take care of her family and is now trying to find ways to make it easier for the next woman or child who flees from abuse. "Before I didn't have hope," she said. "Today I have hope." The Primer is an attempt to help people like Carolyn who do not fit in the system. It is not an exhaustive resource of everything that goes on in polygamous communities, nor will it settle the debate whether stories like Carolyn are the exception to the rule. The Primer provides basic information about various polygamous communities so service providers and others are better prepared to help victims from those communities. It isn't based on the belief there is more crime in fundamentalist communities, but the premise that victims in those communities face more barriers and deserve more help. People who follow "The Principle" of plural marriage may do so out of deep religious conviction or family tradition. many of the terms, beliefs and practices will likely be different and may not even be applicable to each community or family. The Primer will be updated regularly to reflect changes in the organization's beliefs and practices
