no. Practice was abolished in late 1800's but is continuing to be practiced FDLSt, an off shoot of the Mormonn faith.

NO--Groups who have left the church often have multiple wives, bur not active members of the LDS church.

People who practiced polygamy were excommunicated by the church, which led to the various off-shoots.  The original purpose of Polygamy came about because so many husbands were lost as the Mormons moved west to what is now Utah. The men who were left, were encouraged to take on the added responsibility of one or more widows that they were responsible to provide for.

There are 80 sects of Mormonism. The ones that are known are the Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints, and

the Community of Christ which used to be called: the Reorganized Church of Jesus Christ of latter-day saints. I guarantee

you, out of those 80 Mormon sects, more than one practice polygamy. However the two biggest Mormon sects, listed above,

do not practice polygamy.
