My dad had 150 kids and 27 wives – this is what it was REALLY like to grow up in a polygamous cult
A TEENAGER and his two brothers have revealed what it’s like to live in a family with 150, while their dad has a staggering 27 wives.
Merlin Blackmore, 19, comes from “Canada’s largest” polygamist family and has spoken out about his unusual upbringing on TikTok.
Merlin and his two brothers, Muray, also 19, and Warren 21, are the sons of 64-year-old Winston Blackmore, who lives in a giant polygamous family in Bountiful, British Columbia.
Posting on the TikTok account @merlins.life, the teenager revealed he used to try and hide his upbringing and only recently decided to speak out.
Merlin now lives in the US and finally feels comfortable talking about his experiences online, he said, “‘I’ve wanted to talk about this for years. Now I’m in a position I can, the world is going to know.”
The family was so big, the kids went to their own school, while instead of living with their mothers, the teenagers all lived in a “motel house” together.
