Lisa Ling and Oprah talk about polygamist marriages.

Does Lisa believe the men who say underage marriage is no longer an issue? "Well, I think that they have to be very cautious," she says. "They have [Child Protection Services] coming and monitoring things all the time." Lisa points out, however, that some of families have not returned to the ranch since the raid. "They say that they're constantly under this kind of scrutiny and they would rather not have to deal with it on the ranch," Lisa says.

Although fingers are often pointed at polygamist men, Lisa says Seth brought up an opposing viewpoint. "Seth Jeffs also made it a point to say that on the outside world, a man can have as many mistresses and father as many children as he wants," she says. "But when they want to sanctify it and call it marriage, that's when they are in violation of the law."
