Sister Wives: Could You Do It?

4 years ago

For the last few seasons, I've been watching "Sister Wives" on TLC.  The reality show is about a modern day polygamist family trying to make it in a monogamist world.  While I don't agree with their lifestyle, I'm incredibly intrigued by it.  The 4 sister wives are Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn Brown who are all married to Kody Brown.  Their children number into the double digits and the show reveals the chaos that exists as a result.

All members of the family seem relatively normal and well-rounded individuals.  However, their choice to live plural marriage is somewhat speculative.  How can 4 women all share 1 man?  How can 1 man manage the households of 4 women?  I try very hard to wrap my head around the idea of having to share husband with 3 other women throughout the week.  How is a life like this healthy for their children or for their individual needs?

I'm curious to know how many women think they could live plural marriage and not be bothered by their husband sleeping with a different sister wife every night.  Or better yet, how many do it and why?  I don't want another woman even so much as oogling my fiance (even if I do think she's nice).  Do these women not think about the relationships between their husband and the other women or are they able to simply be okay with the fact that their relationship with the husband isn't his only intimate relationship, but it is her only intimate relationship.

Anyone wanna shine some light on this lifestyle for me...because I'm sitting here scratching my head.
