Sister Wives
 
I've just been watching some episodes....and I'm speechless. I can't imagine living like that.

It's like a train wreck...I can't look away (just like Toddlers & Tiaras). But, I also secretly watch Big Love. Shhhhhhhh......don't tell anyone.

I'm watching too! The new season starts tonight.

He seems like a con man to me.

I really think he's creepy but he sure doesn't seem to have any problems finding women, wives, whatever?!?:eek:

CAn you imagine your husband of 20 years coming home and saying "Guess what, I'm in love. She's way younger (and thinner) than you. I know your feelings are hurt, but she's great and you'll get used to her. I'm going to marry her, and I'd like you to watch her kids while I take her on a romantic honeymoon. Okay?"

the kind of honeymoon I didn't take you on. . .

I agree with a pp who said it's like a train wreck...you keep tuning in. I'll probably watch it tonight.

Oh and I looooove Big Love. I love Bill Paxton. I don't get HBO so I used to watch it on another channel but now I can never find it. :(

I tell you what, I'd be handing him the phonebook with "daycare" bookmarked before I sat home and watched her kids. And my butt would be on a plane for my own vacation.

I'd tell him to pack his bags and get his :)ss out!

It would not be ok with me or our DD. I wouldnt want to be with anyone that no longer loves me and feels it would be ok to desrespect me by forcing me to except another women in our relationship.

I wonder if big love or whatever his name is would be ok with one of his wives saying I want to marry this younger, good looking, hot body guy. No way would he put up with it

What is Big Love?

I tried to watch the Sister Wives show and it made me sick to watch. I haven't seen it since.

and his 3 wives

I don't get HBO, so I get Big Love on Netflix. So I'm a season behind! I just finished season 4 and I'll probably have to wait a year to get season 5 on DVD.

I tried watching Sister Wives too and couldn't do it. I just can't get my brain around the whole polygamist concept so I read Shattered Dreams: My Life as a Polygamists Wife by Irene Spencer....didn't help. But it was a good story that left me with even more questions!
