Polygamy is still a reality in many parts of the world, including Canada, the United States, and Mexico. The challenges associated with leaving this lifestyle, since many enter into it involuntarily, are as much psychological as they are physical. Tonia Tewell of Holding Out Help, along with someone who has escaped, explains how people are freeing themselves from such scenarios.
