SAN ANTONIO, Dec. 28 (UPI) -- Members of a polygamist sect in Texas say they are having a difficult time adjusting to life outside their ranch.
Joseph and Lori Jessop left their sect's ranch in Eldorado, Texas, after authorities raided it this year and removed hundreds of children, The Dallas Morning News reported Sunday.
The couple belongs to the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. After the raid they moved to a subdivision in San Antonio, Texas.
"The loneliness, you can't imagine it," Lori said. "This is not the life we chose."
The family worships alone at home. The closest church members outside of the ranch live 20 miles away.
