Skip to comments.The Twin Sisters who Share a HUSBAND (and he’s also Married to Their C0usin)

From their brunette hair to their dress sense, twin sisters Vicki and Valerie Darger have a number of things in common.
But the 42-year-olds share more than just their looks - they are both married to the same man.
The sisters are in a polygamous marriage with Joe, 43, who is also wed to a third woman - their cousin Alina. The Dargers, who are fundamentalist Mormons from Salt Lake City, Utah, live together in a large family home and have 24 children between them.
Vicki, currently a stay-at-home mother, has been married to Joe, who runs a construction company, for 22 years. Valerie joined the family as his third wife in 2000.
In the eyes of their Fundamentalist Mormon religion, all three women are equally married to Joe.
They each have their own bedroom, and Joe alternates between the three rooms each evening.
Valerie, who works in the family cleaning business with Alina, 43, said: 'The fact that Joe was married to Vicki didn't bother me at all. I took it as a sign he would be a good husband for me as well.
'As teenagers, Vicki and I liked some of the same guys. I thought it might even be good if we married the same man.'

Wise words,I'd say.
Get ready for one story after another about marriages like this ..from now until Nov....drip...drip...drip...
Where one man has three wives, two have no wife. Being married is what stabilizes a young ma and makes him a more productive member of society.
The excess males are doomed to being queers and cannon fodder, if history and biology are any indications.
But, what is mere history and science against the wisdom of the polygs?
I’ve had fantasies about twins, but they didn’t involve marrying them....
“Twins Bazel TWINS!”
As long as nobody is on any government aid I don’t care how these adults choose to order their lives. Neither should anyone else.
Well, we’re not supposed to look at history, or think about whether polygamy or homosexual marriage or polyamory or any of that is good for society. We’re in an age where we say that consenting adults have virtually unlimited “rights” to do whatever the heck they want.
And, with the move towards homosexual marriage and possibly polygamy, we’re also saying that society and culture and government have to officially endorse whatever it is that these people want to do.
So while you make a good point about how you would have large numbers of men with no wives, and what impact would that have on society, the liberal thought process does not allow us to go there. Instead, the desires of the consenting adults who want to be polygamous is paramount.
And THERE is the money quote, FRiends. Not enough that they're living illegally, they want the rest of us to ACCEPT IT and LEGALIZE IT.
What are the odds these folks are Romney fans???
"One famous Mormon is U.S. presidential hopeful Mitt Romney, whose father George W. Romney was born in 1907 in a settlement in Mexico that had been founded in the 1880s by Mormons fleeing American anti-polygamy laws. The last polygamist in Romneys direct ancestry was his great-grandfather Miles Park Romney, who had three wives."Pretty good, I'd say.
Three wives? That ought to be punishment enough... LOL
Joe is guilty. Must be more to the man than what meets the eye.
You ain’t kiddin...how come bald guys weren’t cool 30 years ago?
(Admittedly I just came looking for the pics!)
He must buy vitamin E by the case.
Like I said as long as they aren’t taking tax money, I couldnt care less.
If you step back for a moment and look at the actual results numerically, what you’ve just described is what happens when women look to Big Daddy Government as their sugar daddy.
Obama’s little advert of “Julia” perfectly encapsulated this for us. There’s no husband in the picture.
So from a numerical results issue, if men who marry multiple wives can actually support their women and offspring without *any* transfer payments from Big Mack Sugar Daddy, I’d see it as an improvement over our current situation, with high out of wedlock birth rates swelling the ranks of the feral male population and huge increases in things like food stamp rolls, etc.
Americans were all wondering which perversion would be the next to demand acceptance.
If was between polygmay and lowering the age of consent (with anmial sex a long shot possibility.
Looks like we are getting our answer.
Point of order, they are not married to the same man.
They are pretending to be. Only one of them legally is, though.
The rest are just concubines with no civil, legal, or moral protections.
“As long as nobody is on any government aid I dont care how these adults choose to order their lives. Neither should anyone else.”
I care, because there are usually kids involved, often many kids, all of whom are American citizens.
These kids get the ingrown genetics over time. Also, the girls tend to get “married” earlier and earlier, and the boys get thrown away.
Real marriage is a protection for the most vulnerable in our society - children. The definition of marriage is of paramount importance.
