Would you be a sister wife or a brother husband? Why or why not?

    I could never be a sister wife. I am unwilling to share my man with another woman. I also think it's unfair to the children in polygamist families where there are many children. I grew up in a mixed family. I had my sister, my step-brother and sister, and their half brother. That was hard enough to deal with. I can't imagine trying to do that with multiple children coming from different mothers. There just isn't enough time for the father to be an active part of all of their lives.

      I totally agree. I think whether it's acknowledged or not, the multiples in these relationships have to compete for attention. Having multiple spouses makes the commitment of marriage null and void, why get married?

    I'd never be a brother husband nor would I ever want to have multiple wives. I'm not the romantic type and I'm not the super sensitive type, if I found a girl who was willing to accept me I wouldn't want to share her with another man!

    Also having multiple wives is dangerous. The mores wives you have the less likely one of them won't be mad at you! ...well in reality I'd feel obligated to love each of them equally and seeing as I'm not some well of sensitivity to begin with that'd be nearly impossible.

    I believe when someone is "madly in love" with another person they are not likely to want to have that person be intimate with others. Not many men would enjoy hearing the moans and screams of pleasure coming from the woman they (love) who is in the next room with another man. One man's opinion! :-)
    The notion of marriage is to remove one another "off the market". If both or one of people wanted to continue being intimate with others then there is not much need to sanction a marriage between the two. "Friends with Benefits" makes more sense than getting married under those circumstances. I do however understand if somone was brought up with sister wives/husbands how they might see it as "normal" or if a person is not in love but wants the structure and financial help that comes with living in a communal arrangement.

    absolutely not. I think it's repulsive. If I'm married to someone, I'm married to them and only them. I'm not willing to share myself with anyone else and I'm not willing to share my spouse with anyone else either.
