A 60-year-old Ohio mob enforcer-turned-pastor married his teenage bride and got her pregnant, all with the blessing of the other lady in his life — his 44-year-old wife.
“The whole situation works for all three of us,” Thom Miller told Barcroft Media. “I am the only one who is allowed to have more than one partner — and both of my wives understand and appreciate that.”
Miller is now building a bigger home so he can split his time between his two ladies, whom he calls sister wives.
And he believes their polygamous lifestyle is strengthening family ties.
“It means they always have a friend with them.”
Miller met his 19-year-old gal pal, Reba Kerfootruba, seven years after he married his wife, Belinda.
“I wanted to have more of a family — having another lady in the house not only makes our family whole but individually it’s a beautiful thing because it’s like having a sister around,” Belinda said. “Thom is the love of my life and Reba is the blessing of my life, so it all works.”
Reba said her arrangement with a married couple initially troubled her family and friends, but now they support her.
“They’re happy as long as they know I am happy,” she said.
She admitted that she doesn’t love sharing her man with another woman.
“But I try not to get jealous and when it’s not my time with Thom, I just try to occupy myself by going out with friends,” Reba told Barcroft. “The baby will have two moms, which I’m okay with.”
And while Miller’s ladies are both on board with their love triangle, his church in Mansfield, Ohio, isn’t.
“I don’t preach about polygamy, but I feel it’s a very Christian lifestyle,” he said. “This is America and my wives and I have a right to live any way we please, providing we’re not hurting anybody.”
Miller turned to Christianity after he spent seven years in jail for stabbing someone during a bar fight following years as a member of the mob, according to the news outlet.
“I knew I had to make a change,” he said. “I wanted to live a more Christian life.”
Now he has that — and just wants to settle down with his wives.
“We just want the opportunity to live together and have our marriages recognized,” he said.
Polygamy is illegal in all 50 states.
