W. Wallace Smith presented Doctrine and Covenants Section 150 in the midst of some unique challenges to the church. Richard Howard reminded us that the 1960s and early 1970s was filled with mistrust of church leadership. W. Wallace Smith provided this revelation in 1972 seeking to address these challenges and boldly reminded the church to “get along.” This revelation touched upon a variety of issues; leadership responsibilities, relationships, stewardship, education and training, monogamy, unity and differences.
The Canterbury Tales, by Geoffrey Chaucer, reveals that religion does not make moral individuals. Chaucer goes on about telling how several of the characters on the pilgrimage had questionable lifestyles yet the characters were taking part in a religious journey. Religion can only influence a moral character but does not make its followers untouchable to the imperfections found on earth. In The Canterbury Tales, Chaucer’s character, The Pardoner, is a church official who altered the peoples mind by cheating the people into believing any nonsense.
Marrying more than one is showed throughout the culture due to the fact that many women marry at young ages, even as early as age 14. The ratio between the two sexes was about six to one and by 1680 a ratio of three to one (Berkin, 6). Men are fortunate to find a wife since there is a big difference in the amount of women to men. One of the reason men and women tend to marry more than once is due to the fact that Chesapeake often experience an early death. Early death was caused by bacterial diseases during pregnancy (Berkin, 7).
Monogamy was insisted upon, divorce and re-marriage became more difficult. Concubinage, though it could not be abolished, ceased to be lawful. A general rule is that respect for women is only found in a society in which monogamy is the rule. We must distinguish between the affected idolatry which was enjoyed by the customs of chivalry and the equality which was upheld by the Church.

Marriage Infidelity in “The Lady with the Pet Dog” When two people decide to get married, they’re basically taking an oath that they will be faithful to one another for the rest of their life, but that’s not the case in Anton Chekhov’s short story “The Lady with the Pet Dog”. We witness two characters named Gurov and Anna that are being unfaithful to their spouses with one another. Since social media is becoming more popular, people are finding it easier to cheat in their relationship because of it. Being disloyal to your partner can come with a lot of risks.
In 1874, efforts to prosecute Latter-day Saints who practiced plural marriage were in full effect. The reasoning was that the religious practice was an infraction of an 1862 act, named the Morrill Anti-Bigamy Act. It was declared unconstitutional to have more than one spouse. Polygamy was said to be in clear violation of the Free Exercise Clause of the First Amendment to the United States Constitution. However, the Church of Latter-day Saints viewed things differently.
In Canada, many people understand marriage to be a legal union between a couple that formally recognizes their true love for each other. In other parts of the world, different cultures practice arranged marriages planned by the family or guardians of the bride and groom. Without a doubt, there are successful long-lasting love stories derived from arranged marriages. However, the whole process of an arranged marriage can have negative social implications. In my opinion, I believe that arranged marriages are wrong and should no longer be acceptable across the globe.
