@TwoStatesBride:  I’m watching, too, and I respect what they have and the relationships they’re able to maintain. But I couldn’t do it.

I’ve seen the show a few times and I just don’t get it. I don’t see the relationship between any of the women and him… It’s not like the romantic marriage and relationship I have with my FI. They truly seem like life partners who are there to breed and just raise children together.

I don’t know if I only watched some SUPER boring bad episodes… But I just dont like it. I cannot imagine my FI going to bed with another woman at night. And then, being like a sister to that woman. UGH. It honestly makes me sick to my stomach.

Their life is not as glamarous as TV portrays it to be. They have a lot of marital issues just as any normal relationship could have. I watch the show, but I don’t think it is a positive example of relationships. thats just my opinion tho!

I am watching now. I couldn’t because I’d want to see my husband every night but to each their  own. They are with each other because they want to be and they are adults. They must have more jealousy then they let on- I mean how could they not?

@gpsp2B:  I can see your viewpoint.  While I do think somone wives find it more important to be ‘family’ all together, I usually get the sense that the wives are jealous/envious of one another.  And I don’t blame them at all. 

Now I haven’t seen it in years– are they still living in SEPERATE houses in vegas? Because although I would definitely prefer that, it seems like it would defeat the purpose of the family structure. And it’s just a man who’s living 4 separate lives.

It’s not the relationship being polygamist that bothers me, but the fact Kody seems to be a teenager still. It’s like watching a kid with 4 moms. He doesn’t seem to have any autonomy when it comes to family life. Definitely not the kind of man (needy) that I would want to share my life with. 

On the other hand, I’ve watched Big Love (fiction serie) alomost religiously. It is a lifestyle that I can understand would be very fit for some people and I can see what’s attractive about it. I know it’s not for me, not religiously, not sexually. But somehow, I get it. The idea of raising kids all together as sister-wives, in a community kind of way, I find very attractive. But not wanting kids myself, I can only *imagine* how that could be another family model and I’m not totally opposed to it either.

@tampalove35:  It does seem they have some jealousy issues. Despite their best efforts, even if its not intimate stuff, there’s really a reason to be jealous over anything. Or one can make a reason to be! Especially a woman! I definitely give them props for sticking to their religious beliefs..

I mean I also live in BFE MN and the Amish are all over.. I seriously get the biggest shit eating grin when I see Amish. I just love them they are so facinating to me. HAHA. I just don’t and can’t understand the polygamist thing… And like someone mentioned how they are all living seperate houses… I feel like its just a bunch of wives who don’t care their husband has other wives… not even like it’s religious. It seriously just kind of portrays as not caring their husband has other lives… I just cant grasp it.

 

@TwoStatesBride:  I watch TLC so I see commercials and I keep seeing the one where he is asking about who is most strict and something about jealousy… and an episode about “so you dont want to have another baby with me”? And it just weirds me out! I do give them some props for following the religious like I said.. but I totally can not wrap my head around it and accept it, I just find it so odd!

I see FLDS members a lot… and this show doesn’t show what MOST polygamists are like… Not even close. They seem healthier for sure, than the ones I am used to. When I see them they all look pissed off and sad. But thats just what I see. 

The people on this show at least seem pretty normal.

@gpsp2B:  I can only rely on what I’ve seen in the fictionnal serie Big Love, but according to this family, ”The principle” dictates that a man can have many wives, each to have children with, in order to keep the faith and principle alive. So to have many wives has a purpose : having children, the more the better. That’s what I understood from the TLC ad where one of the wives has conceiving issues and asks her husband if he wants/expects her to carry another child (from another wife’s egg donation). 

I think all polygamist relationship deals with jealousy issues at one point. It’s very appreciated that they have always been honest about it (and even the fictional serie I’ve watched doesn’t try to make it look like it doesn’t exist).

I’ve got nothing against whatever form of relationship works for any group of consenting adults.

I’d be totally down for a polyamorous living situation, BUT only if I could be sexually involved with ALL (or at least most of) the other members – meaning each other person was into me and I was into them. None of the sister wives thing. I know it works great for some but I don’t think I’d be happy with it. To be clear, I’d be totally willing to be one of multiple wives, but again, only if the other wives and I were also getting it on in the man’s absence.
