Has anyone heard of this Tom Green? In the early 2000s, he was a middle-aged guy married to a bunch of frumpy-dressed kidults in their 20s. His wives were all 14 to 16 years old when he married them, with the exception of two: the mother of his second wife (his third wife) and her older sister, who later divorced him. They have 25 to 30 children.

Tom Green lived in a trailer camp located on a dusty wasteland 200 mi from Salt Lake City at the time of his arrest. Not much info about the family is around.

GACK!!!!!!!!  🤢🤮  I remember reading about this tool in the 90's, in Women's World magazine, I think. He only had four wives then.

I wonder what has become of his kids, now that almost 20 years have passed.

Prior to embracing polygamy, Tom Green was married to a woman and had 3 kids. After he met his 14 y.o. wife-to-be at age 35, the first wife divorced him. Green went on to marry a 15 y.o. and, shortly thereafter, her mother and aunt, a 16 y.o. and her younger sister.

The family is broke, living in a fantasy world and making plans to turn the barren wasteland they call home into a sort of wonderland dreamscape despite having no means to do it. The wives take weekly turns knocking door-to-door to sell magazine subscriptions with their husband after an 8-hour road trip, and while each wife lives in a trailer with her own kids, all the wives rotate spending the night with Tom in his tacky, greasy bed. Tom himself appears to have lulled himself into his own fantasy world, of which he is the creator.

One of the children died in a fire from an electric malfunction, and one of the children has Down Syndrome.

The wives are all weird, child-like and appear brainwashed. One wife recounts Tom drew with a feltpen on her belly to show her how the deed would happen on their wedding night. When questioned about the need for marrying girls so young, Tom responds by saying that "God makes no mistakes making teenagers menstruate", but he makes no mention of the 1 girl, 1 boy natural birth ratio which would make the case against polygamy, of course.

At age 51, with a son as old as 13, Green was making arrangements to marry the 16 y.o. daughter of a "spiritual son of his", who also happened to be his son's crush. However, problems with the law put a halt to his wedding plans.

Here's the whole documentary:

Such bullshit.  Women ( key word there) in their 20's can make babies too. He does this because he's got himself an infatuation with teenagers.  Who are more malleable.  

The first video......I thought I may have gotten it wrong that Tom was going after that young man's crush. Apparently not.  Wtf. Tom must have them all, huh?  And, marrying a whole family of women is gross.  Daughter, mom, aunt.  Sick man.   That compound was pathetic.

Tom went to jail because one of the wives was 13 when she conceived their son. This story was big news back in the day, especially when he finally went to jail when the son was around 14.

I found the 5 young wives on facebook. They appear to keep in touch with each other and be supportive of each other. At least one wife graduated from college and married a man who appears to be near her age. Another wife seems to enjoy being a grandmother. They've tightened up their facebook privacy since I last looked. Three of the wives are photographed with Tom Green. It's unclear if that's just a photo or if they are still in a relationship with him.

He was creepy then, and he's creepy now.

He’s in his early 70s now. I’m hoping his age has slowed him down a bit. And I also hope that since we haven’t heard much from him, he hasn’t taken anymore wives or had too many more children.

 I was wondering how the wives are doing. I hope Tom's kids don't practice polygamy. 

Here is an interview after he was in prison.

Does anyone know Shirley Green's maiden name? She said she is originally from Short Creek. I'm wondering what family she belongs to. 

I would love to hear from the older 3 wives. His first, monogamous wife, then the mother of one of the wives and the aunt of another. They all left him. I would love to hear their story.

That would be interesting.

Tom lost weight in prison.

I remember seeing this despicable man's little documentary, but I didn't know that he was convicted and went to jail. That slimy cunt of a chumbucket paedophile totally deserved that. I think it was that through shows like like these I ended up finding the Duggars... Holy shit... I found Duggars during my FLDS obsession period in 2012!!!! YouTube really knows what to suggest.

Resurrecting an old one here but I just came across this doc on YouTube and after a bit of googling and facebooking I came running to FJ.

I found this article which lists the maiden names of the wives, apparently Shirley’s was Beagley, same as Leeann who is her sister.

Truly a fascinating documentary especially when you’re able to watch it this much later and find out a little bit about where they have gone in their lives since. Based on what I saw when looking up Leeann these days for example, you’d never know this was once her lifestyle. I hope she, and the rest, are happy in their lives today.

This story was a random news story I saw on some morning news show as a teenager. It was an interview with his wives after his arrest. They were defending their way of life but they had sheets hanging up in all the doorways and were just so out of touch that it was obvious. It furthered my plyg watching habits that started when I went to school in southern Utah as a young teenager. That curiosity is how I first found FJ. It wasn't until I also searched the Duggars many years later that I ended up joining. It's nice to know I'm not the only one. 😄

      So excited, happy. Finally I got my vaccination appointment. The first on the 26th of May , the second on my birthday.  Staying at home is no option, because I work in healthcare, with very close patientcontact. (I make mammograms). Hopefully I can relax a bit more after my vaccination and let the anxiety go.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.
