@peachacid:  It’s funny to me how you’re so open to insulting certain aspects of religion. I’ve been on this site for 2 years, and you’re always the first poster to scream “racist!” or “politically incorrect!” in any controversial thread.

@canarydiamond:  ITA with everything you wrote.

When I first started watching this series I was not prepared to accept their lifestyle. However, I have come to respect their family and that it works for them. As long as as there is no forcing involved and they are of legal age I no longer have an issue with it. These women where not coerced into pursing a relationship with Kody.

As far as the bankruptcy, it’s with their legal right to do so. If multi billionaire Donald trump and numerous corporations can employ that tactic, many times over, then oh well.

@peachacid:  it’s because people like to hide behind the curtain of perceived neutrality. It’s like the honor killing of women in India and the Middle East because she wanted an education – people are more likely to say “It’s not my culture, so I can’t judge” than “That’s wrong, they should stop that this instant!”

It’s retarded.

Yeah I said it.

I have only seen a few episodes here and there, so I really can’t comment much on it. However, I do have several friends who are polyamorous (two of them actually come talk to my students when I teach a certain class. My students always ask ifI’m dating them/poly myself, and honestly I’m so busy that I’m lucky to have time for one person and remember their name!). Most of my poly friends do not live together (like, one couple lives in their house and their girlfriend lives 15 min away with her boyfriend who is not dating them). I don’t think that their relationships are any less or more valid than mine, just different.

@MrsPanda99:  “I cannot fathom watching my husband marry another woman

@jadlnc:  “So basically they’re just girlfriends he has kids with. Baby mama drama. Damn. I’d rather be single than fight for the attention of my “husband” who gets to stick his dick in 3 other pussies on a regular basis. 

Sorry for being crass.

And that is how I feel about polygamy.

From a sociological aspect, it is extremely interesting.  However, I would never condone this nor do I feel it is right, evolutionary speaking (within psychology) it isn’t,   It goes against what we believe to be sexual jealousy and how the human species developed because of it (I’m not talking about Darwinism lol).  In a very simplistic explanation males would not want their partners to be unfaithful due to the consequences namely having someone elses child without them knowing etc hence men being more concerned with sexual infidelity.  On the other hand, females would not want their partners to cheat due to the consequences such as having to share resources etc.  Its clear that it is far more complex than my overly simplistic explanation but needless to say, it goes against many explanations and beliefs of human behaviour (even in some biological aspects).

However, I believe everyone deserves respect but that does not mean you agree with their practice especially in an instance where is it not out of pressure or obligation.  I guess it is something I will never understand and in all honesty I can not imagine an independent and intelligent women being able to handle such a situation.  Personally, I couldn’t be one of several wives, I think a partnership should be equal and if my FH had multiple partners but I couldn’t, how is that equal in any measure?

Nevertheless, if they are not being harmed and it isn’t out of obligation, my opinion doesn’t count for much even though I may not agree.

@Mischka:  Hahaha totally agree! There are times where I think that relationships are too time consuming (you know those male-time-of-the-month that they always deny haha), can you imagine having a third/fourth/fifth party too?  Ughhh!! I’m not even going to go into having your husband have sex with another woman in your house or seeing them make out etc… that would just be disturbing!

Our president has many wives, so it’s the sort of practice I don’t have a knee-jerk reaction to. It’s not for me, but those ‘sister wives’ seem to be happy and frankly real freedom is the ability to choose how you want to live without (or in spite of) the judgement of other people. I don’t think you have to agree with something in order to understand it.

@MrsPanda99:  Man, I have a hard enough time getting ONE person to put up with me… more power to anyone who can find four women who they can all make happy… I couldn’t do it myself. I would do polyamory (as I am bisexual) in a situation where we were all on an even keel and romantic with each other, but I wouldn’t be down with the sister wives thing. 

The way I see it though in those situations, it’s often actually the friend-sistery relationships with the other women that seems to drive the family, not so much the romances with the husband. I don’t think it’d really please me as an arragement or be something I’d look for but I can kind of understand where they’re coming from, and if they’re happy, awesome!

Would be OK if the women were allowed to bring in additional husbands.

@MrsPanda99:  I agree with pp’s while I don’t agree with it I also say to each there own. Though I am way to territorial over my husband to share him with other people. I also agree that it should be decrimlinalized even if its not strictly legal.
