The Lion of the Lord: a biography of Brigham Young, pp. 126 – 127 ““Make haste and get married,” Remy heard Young preach. “Let me see no boys above sixteen and girls above fourteen unmarried.” …. Fifteen years later as Dodge’s party listened, the prophet said he had married his wives not “for love or lust” but because God had commanded “all women, young and old, to be made mothers in Israel”.
