Remember back in the day when almost from birth a girl was groomed to become a wife? If so, I'm impressed that you're still alive, because I'm pretty old myself, and I have only the vaguest memories of that world. But in certain cultures this still stands. In these episodes with author Rachel Rueckert, we discuss the challenges of growing up in the LDS with an almost absolute expectation that marriage & motherhood are pretty much the only options in front of you. Rachel offers a very thoughtful personal history of her life, and how she has met and continues to challenge the status quo--all while navigating a successful marriage. Hear how the old Mormon tradition of polygamy still influences the religion today.
