I apologize in advance if this is all a bit jumbled together....I am writing at nearly 6am after having not slept all night. My name is Robin, I am a 24 year old female, I believe in God very very strongly but at the moment I don't follow any organized religion. I have been researching polygamy for years now and have found nothing but fluff sites and news articles, or creepy dating sites. I finally typed in "I think I am called to be a polygamist" into google and found a blog of a Fundamentalist Mormon Plural wife that said this site was the best one she had seen. So here I am, hoping she is correct. I am not now, now have I ever been a Mormon, though I have gone to an LDS church on more than one occasion...as my former foster parents were LDS. I have looked around at alot of different religions and many of them make sense but none really call to me, except for maybe Fundamentalist Mormonism. I have wanted to be a polygamist longer than I can remember...this isn't a perverted sexual thing because when I say as long as I can remember I mean single digit aged here. I remember telling a friend of mine that I wanted to marry a guy in a girl in Junior High School...he told me that I was bi-sexual...I thought that maybe that was the case. It isn't...I experimented and I know. When I was 16 I met an LDS family on vacation, the family had three children, the oldest was married and living on a polygamist compound. Their youngest son and I became good friends and exchanged letters on and off for a few years. He taught me a bit about Mormon Polygamy and I was fascinated. In the last 5 years I have felt that I was going the wrong direction with my life. In the last 2 years the idea of polygamy has become nearly an obsession in my mind. I started watching the show Big Love and realized I wanted a family dynamic like that more than just about anything else in the world, trouble is I don't know how to find something like that. Anyone who can help me out would be wonderful!!!
