These rituals are believed to have been practiced by the members of God’s true church in Solomon’s Temple.
Some Latter-day Saints feel obliged to hold to the view that Masonry derived from King Solomon’s Temple, because it is theologically less complicated to do so than accept the historical roots of Masonry. As one Masonic writer recently noted: With books such as McGavin’s Mormonism and Masonry still in circulation, and perpetuation of the tradition of antiquity in the Encyclopedia of Mormonism, it is hard to overcome the Latter-day Saint belief that Masonry is derived from King Solomon’s Temple.
As long as LDS believe in the origination of Masonic ceremonies with Solomon, resentment of this ‘apostate’ ceremony will continue on the part of many Mormons.

Anthropologist Jack Goody ‘s comparative study of marriage around the world utilizing the Ethnographic Atlas found a strong correlation between intensive plough agriculture, dowry and monogamy. This pattern was found in a broad swath of Eurasian societies from Japan to Ireland.
The majority of Sub-Saharan African societies that practice extensive hoe agriculture, in contrast, show a correlation between ” bride price ” and polygamy. In all cases, the second marriage is considered legally null and void. Besides the second and subsequent marriages being void, the bigamist is also liable to other penalties, which also vary between jurisdictions.
