As someone who has an outsider's view on Mormonism but who has taken some time and effort to get to know it, I would want to raise this point.

1) They are practicing Mormons, and I assume it means they are believers too?
2) The LDS Church does not condone polyamory. Am I right to assume they risk excommunication or other spiritual/social penalties if they enter this lifestyle and are found out?
3) I find it sad that even if this turns out happily, i.e. her DH is on board and the two of you can pursue a full-blown romantic relationship, their options as a couple are either to lie, deceit and hide or to leave their church.

I personally would never want to be closeted again. In a rush of NRE your whatever-she-is might feel she can do it, but living in constant fear of exposure eats away your soul. I strongly advice against it.
