Meet Ben Musser, Rebecca Musser Husband
Ben Musser saved Rebecca Musser’s life from being abused and being assigned to or married to someone she wouldn’t want to. She barely knew him when she first escaped from the FLDS church’s compound. But, she trusted him to safely rescue her from the hell she wished to escape from for a long time.
Rebecca made the decision to flee from the compound of the FLDS church which was possible after her husband Rulon died in September 2002. Warren, the new in charge of the church had given her the ultimatum to marry the person he chose.
One night, Rebecca gathered all her courage and escaped from the compound in a sly manner so that she wouldn’t be caught. Rebecca trekked half-mile where Ben was waiting for her who would meet her in his brother’s truck.
At the time, Ben was only 19-year-old. Rebecca spoke about Ben to MarieClaire, “He had shown kindness to me, telling me not to be forced into doing anything I didn’t want to do. Without him, all was lost”.
Reflecting on that day, Ben and Rebecca were escaping from Utah to Las Vegas, she recalled: “In the silence of the growing light, I stole furtive glances at Ben, whom I barely knew. I had just left everything and nearly everyone I’d ever known, and so had he”. They traveled to Oregon, where Rebecca’s brother Cole was expelled from the FLDS for attempting to protect our younger siblings from a beating.
It was difficult for both Ben and Rebecca outside in the world they knew and trusted very little. But, eventually sending countless applications, after two weeks of escaping, they ended up getting a job at a restaurant which helped them support themselves.
In her book The Witness Wore Red, Rebecca wrote, “I also dedicate this book to Ben Musser, whom I’ve watched become a most incredible and loving father.”
