Of all the aspects of church history I found polyandry to be the most surprising and the most shocking. But because I hold the Book of Mormon to be authentic and brought about how Joseph Smith stated. I have to give Joseph Smith the benefit of the doubt that his actions were not malicious in anyway.
Having given polyandry much thought I believe that those who also see Joseph Smith as a prophet who was not perfect in anyway should not have any problem with polyandry.
Because polyandry is not only practiced by the church today but sanctioned by the church. I believe that polyandry was practiced in Joseph Smiths day as it is practiced today. An example of how it is practiced today is as follows. There are thousands of women who are sealed to their husband widowed or get a divorce and get remarried to another man having the wedding officiated by their bishop and in some cases married in the temple for only time. In the churches eye, unless a temple divorce is sought after and granted the women is married to two men. In some cases a women will be married longer to their second husband in their mortal existence yet in the after life be with the man she is sealed to.
I would say that most people who were shocked and repulsed to hear about Joseph Smith’s polyandry but when it comes to our day when sealed divorced women marry again those same feeling are none existent.
Of course if you believe that Joseph Smith is a fraud and a crook these views will mean nothing to you. On the other hand, if you want to give Joseph Smith the benefit of the doubt polyandry practiced by him is no different than it is today.
