What kind of religion coerces you to stay through implied threats to your marriage, wider family, and even your business?

Many...

But in a cult like Mormonism it is far more prevalent. I had a second cousin who always dreamed of living out West because of his love for outdoor pursuits. Shortly after he married he got a job in Utah. It turned out the town was dominated by Mormons. He had little problem because he was Protestant, but his RC wife was totally shunned by the women. he took it for a couple of years but the pressure on his wife was unbearable so he moved back East.

Nice homey folks thsoe Mormons.
