I just think the women must have really bad self esteem problems. To think they have to share a husband. Sad.

He is only legally married to Meri, the other "wives" are only a church seremony, so I think that is how it's not breaking laws.

It's one big house with three separate living quarters. Except for Robin, she has a house down the street.

I agree with this. I am of the mind that consenting adults can do what they want as long as they aren't living off my dime or committing any sort of abuse.

I don't really get the idea of it breaking the law. It seems to me that a man (or woman) can run around on their spouse and sleep with any number of other people and it's not illegal (clearly immoral, to me), but when everyone is in agreement in the arrangement it's illegal. I've never understood that.

I just can't help but disagree. I believe they are hurting their children. I disagree with the whole thing vehemently, but if only adults were involved, that would be their choice. However, it isn't only adults - there are children being reared this way.

I find it sad that so many people are prejudice against these people. I know that in American society, there's always the lifestyle that everyone finds to be "normal". Just because this family isn't your version of "normal", it doesn't mean that they "have low self esteem" or are doing wrong.

I'm glad that they are out there, teaching people about their lifestyle. While I personally wouldn't chose it for myself, I am thankful that they are able to live the lifestyle themselves. I just hope that they don't get in too much trouble over it

When Kody lets one of his wives bring home a hot new guy (or maybe two or three), the show may be interesting. Until then, it's ridiculous.

In order to be realistic, they would have to force the 13 year old girls to marry 50-60 year old men, and then drive the teenage boys out of the house to fend for themselves.

Me too. Drives me crazy that they release sooooooooo slowly. Grrrrrr.

My husband can't understand why any man would want to have to deal with more than one wife. Wonder what that says about me

Agree, it is not like they are like "other" polygamist, who marry off their 13 yo daughters to dirty old men. Their children seem to be normal. A few of them have said this isn't the lifestyle they will chose to live as adults and the parents were ok with that. Madison had said in season 1, that she would only want 1 husband and just her. So it isn't like they are making their children be like this as adults.

People do this all the time, in that case its called cheating not polygamy.

THey do get jealous-they have talked about it on the show. But, that does not mean it is a bad arrangement. I am sure plenty of happily married "normal" couples deal with jealousy issues from time to time.

I AM SO WITH YOU! Seriously...Not that I care what they are doing but if it's good for the goose it's good for the gander. And they DO get jealous!! One was upset he helped pick out the new wifes wedding dress. The first wife is jealous she can't have more children etc.

I couldn't imagine living with those types of insecure feelings YUCKO!!!
