Plural marriage, or polygamy, continues to be one of the most well-known doctrines and practices associated with the Mormon tradition. Though LDS President Wilford Woodruff announced the official end of the practice in 1890, Mormon leaders continued to quietly marry plural wives up until the issue of the "Second Manifesto" in 1904. Today the Mormon church excommunicates any member involved in a plural marriage, but it is far from a dead issue. A common question is: Do Mormons today still practice polygamy? Much of today's confusion about this issue stems from two facts.
