Apostle Heber J. Grant writes in his journal: "After we had had our Prayer Circle I asked the Presidency to give me their counsel and advice with reference to what action should be taken about Hyrum Grant or me marrying the widow of Geo[rge] Grant. I told them that I was better able to care for four wives from a financial standpoint than Hyrum was one. Told them that I had no desire to turn away from this matter in case there was a feeling that I should marry the widow. They were unanimously of the opinion that it would not be wise for me to take the step and suggested that I encourage Hyrum to do it." Plural wife writes of her husband: "We are more like lovers than husband and wife for we are as far removed from each other [-] there is always the embarrassment of lovers and yet we have been married more than 37 years."
