|I gathered that him giving money to the prophet was more of a mafia style thing that tithing|

|Born into a traditional Mormon family, Barb met Bill soon after she started college at the University of Utah. It wasn't long before the two were married, and Barb headed into adulthood armed with a teaching degree and hope for a baby.
She ended up having three with Bill — Sarah (now 16), Ben (15), and Teenie (8) — and for nearly a decade they shared a fairly conventional family life together. But then a crisis struck and Barb needed help caring for the kids. Bill turned to the compound where he was raised, and Nicki Grant was sent to live with the family. Over time the nature of Nicki and Bill's relationship changed, and Bill and Barb agreed to invite Nicki to be Bill's second wife.
Barb's new family arrangement has led to strained relationships with her mother, Ellen, and sister, Cindy, who are still active in the Mormon Church. Barb herself has mixed feelings about her complicated family life. And though she continues to perform the 'first wife duty' of running the households, she's become more open to the idea of returning to the classroom and reconnecting with her own needs outside of the home.
