If so, BY was sure a selfish pig.

If he had 50 wives and had sex each night with one of them, his wives would have to wait for nearly 2 months for their turn.

And if Amelia was his favorite, they'd have to wait longer than that. And probably got a wham bam, thank you, mam!

Nature gave women a desire to do their part in reproduction of humans, they’re more wanting sex during their fertile times… Why hasn’t this been mentioned here?

It hasn’t been mentioned because it’s not true. For one thing, it is not unusual for women to be more interested in sex after menopause.

None of the links you posted addressed the point I made about libido often increasing after menopause. That's not a universal reaction, but not rare either.

my statement was that a woman's sex drive (often) increases while she's fertile (ovulation); I provided lots of documentation for that even tho U denied / disputed my statement.

me: Integrity sometimes means admitting you're wrong, I try to do this myself from time to time.

as it is to men OR MORE IMPORTANT? Women get "screwed" however you look at polygamy.

I can't remember what show I watched about Rulon Jeffs I believe. Even in his 80s, he expected his very young wives to please him. I'd assume they weren't pleased themselves.

Is anything more important to males than to females? How about hermaphrodites?

Nature questions simplifying nurture out are unintelligible to minds not really into oversimplification.

And what makes you think the wives weren’t sleeping with other men, other women (like the other wives) or masturbating? Or what makes you think BY was even worth the trouble?

Many of the women didn't get much if anything in the way of sex, companionship, or financial support out of Young. What good does it do to be referred to as, "Mrs. Brigham Young" if there is no meaningful relationship?

So I have watched.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UbhNxmwh_qc

"An in-depth look into the secretive polygamous sect of the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and the rise of self-professed prophet Warren Jeffs. From forced underage marriage and pregnancy to a complete unraveling into an oppressive criminal cult under Warren Jeffs’ rule, the story uncovers extraordinary bravery battling tyrannical control in modern America."

Women were seen as property or at least that's what I got the impression of. Many women/children did not want to get married to an older man or even their own cousin. Not sure if every one of Brigham Youngs wives even wanted to marry Brigham Young?

"In January of 1873, Ann Eliza Young, by her account the 19th wife of Brigham Young, spiritual leader of the Mormon church, filed for divorce from Young, charging him with neglect and desertion."

To me polygamy does not sound like living a "dream". I have watched "sister wives" on TV and Kody Brown has a favorite wive. Now I have not met Brigham Young but how can he love each wive equally?

"On the advice of her family, Ann Eliza married Brigham Young, the second president of the LDS Church, when he was sixty-seven years old and she was a twenty-four-year-old divorcee. They were married on April 7, 1869. The ceremony was presided over by LDS Church leader Heber C. Kimball."

Per google

That is an age gap of 43 years between Ann Eliza 24 years old and Brigham Young 67 years old. Brigham Young could have been her grandpa.

What kind of family advice it that to marry someone 43 years older? To me it looks more like the family wanted to be connected through marriage with the prophet Brigham Young. Yes, I could be wrong maybe Ann Eliza had the hots for older men?

It Wouldn't / couldn't have been that Ann E & her family wanted in on some of BY's wealth, could it?

Nah, that wouldn't happen bc Mormons are 100 % altruistic, no hidden agendas!

Oh WAIT!! One of the justifications 'reasons' for polyg was to 'take care of the widows of all the men murdered by ChurchCo oppressors/persecutors' (how many was THAT???)
