Why would any Woman stay in?

I have written a lot on my blog about men who are emotionally distant/constipated.  To be married to one of these men is torture. To have a marriage like this for eternity would be the same as hell.  Now imagine a woman being required to share her husband with many, many other women. Imagine this is the law of heaven. Imagine being eternally pregnant and spending little time with that man because he was off making heaven babies with other wives. Talk about physical and emotional distance! This is the Mormon idea of heaven. It is even  memorialized in their scripture. They deny they still practice polygamy, but it is in their canonized scripture. It is required to live in their heaven. It must be believed and practiced to make it into their heaven:

In D&C 132:  4 For behold, I reveal unto you a new and an everlasting acovenant; and if ye abide not that covenant, then are ye bdamned; for no one can creject this covenant and be permitted to enter into my glory.   52 And let mine handmaid, Emma Smith, areceive all those that have been given unto my servant Joseph, and who are virtuous and pure before me; and those who are not pure, and have said they were pure, shall be destroyed, saith the Lord God.  62 And if he have aten virgins given unto him by this law, he cannot commit adultery, for they belong to him, and they are given unto him; therefore is he justified.64 And again, verily, verily, I say unto you, if any man have a wife, who holds the keys of this power, and he teaches unto her the law of my priesthood, as pertaining to these things, then shall she believe and administer unto him, or she shall be destroyed, saith the Lord your God; for I will destroy her; for I will magnify my name upon all those who receive and abide in my law.

  65 Therefore, it shall be lawful in me, if she receive not this law, for him to receive all things whatsoever I, the Lord his God, will give unto him, because she did not believe and administer unto him according to my word; and she then becomes the transgressor; and he is exempt from the law of Sarah, who administered unto Abraham according to the law when I commanded Abraham to takeaHagar to wife.

Why would any sane woman accept this, believe this?

By the way, this scripture specifically states that any wives multiple wives must be virgins. According to the mormon churches' own website, Familysearch.org, several of Joseph's polygamous wives were already married to other men, thus they were not virgins.
