Description
In 1839 Mary Cragin, at the age of twenty-nine, became a convert to John Humphrey Noyes’s “communism of love” and persuaded her husband to move with her to the commune. In 1846, after having an affair with another member of the commune, she and Noyes developed an attachment. Following a meeting of the church, Noyes proposed that he and Cragin’s husband share each other’s wives. In an understatement, he called the arrangement a “complex marriage.”
