    Jef Holm's book of Mormon doesn't involve polygamy.

    And, according to Emily Maynard's Bachelorette-approved main man, neither does his family's!

    "Now they're going after my family? My family DOES NOT, has HAS NEVER had any affiliation with polygamy. Ever. Mormons = 1�� & 1��. �� = ��," Holm tweeted today (the squares are male and female face emoticons tweeted from a phone).  

    Jef and Emily dished to E! News about their relationship

    Holm's reaction was prompted by an In Touch story that claims he has aunts and uncles who are members of a fundamentalist sect of Mormonism that still practices polygamy and that his paternal grandfather had 11 wives.

    The magazine also reports that Holm's dad, Monte, has left the polygamy-tolerating Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints that his father helped establish. Monte Holm is reportedly one of 15 kids from the same mom—and one of 64 brothers and sisters overall, per the mag.

    As if meeting your fiancé's family isn't intimidating enough!
