Polygamy has its origins since the dawn of time. There is a show on TLC called Sisterwives, where polygamist Kodee is married to four women with each new season a wife seems to be pregnant. They appeared on Anderson Cooper and he asked what if the roles were reversed. The women seemed appauled by the mere mention. What do you think?

I agree with you 200% i often think of how tormented I would be knowing my husband is with someone else it has to play with their self-esteem. I'm really have seen a handful of episodes.
I watched the 1st and 2nd seasons on Netflix. I had to watch it when hubby wasn't home lol. You could tell the wives weren't very confident. They recently moved to Nevada and now live in 4 different houses, which has had a huge impact on the dynamics
Lol. I bet it does. Especially now he has to house hop. Smh. What I found interesting was one wife wanted to carry a baby for another that said she was jealous of her at one point.
I'm thinkin the house hopping doesn't help with the jealousy, but at least the other wives can't hear anything... Why is overcoming jealousy a test of faith for the women? How is Kody's faith tested? By sleeping with multiple women? I don't get it
Me either, it makes no sense to put yourself through that kind of unnecessary torment, but i gues its what they chose. His hardest test is oh did i give that wife her 25%.
lol so true. I went and watched a couple episodes again and the wives said this lifestyle assures their never lonely. I couldn't handle that. I need my alone time!
I understand your position and he tries to divide his time evenly (as if thats possible). I was just shocked that they were not even a little open about a woman doing the same as Kodee.
True, but that means there is a double standard in play. Then it makes me question the equality in the relationship and if its even plausible.
Thats what the women said of their union when it comes to jealousy. I have no issues with gays my issue is polygamy. I don't understand how they can show instant disguise at a polygamous woman have several husband when the only difference is gender.
you know, according to the Mormon faith, in the afterlife, the righteous men gets planets and infinent celestial sex with MANY females...their motive to perform well on earth...its so disgusting. WHy can't one man have one wife or husband?
Duffmom I bet he is and it is illegal. I think they are, but don't know it. They willing signed on for the lifestyle.
I'm going to have to check that out. Thanks for your input, love to learn new things, it sparks creativity.
You have a point about staying inspite of being unhappy. I think that may be the case with the character Mary (1st wife) she only has one child. Very insightful!
I agree, but whatever floats your boat. They say they get jealous, but its their duty to overcome it. Like its a test of faith.
Exactly. But, It's definitely not for me. :)
Me either seems a bit greedy, I really don't buy deep sisterly bond, because if one of my friends was with my husband we would not be getting closer, but we'd have issues for sure.
