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

    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?"

    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.

    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!

    I love this show! If it works for them well, let them be. They aren't hurting me with their lifestyle. But I agree Kody is a lil creeper...But that doesn't keep me from watching.

    I love Sister Wives. I could never live the lifestyle, but it's interesting to watch. I personally don't care if a man has more than one wife, as long as his wives are into it, too. These women seem fine with the arrangement. The wives also seem very nice and normal, but Kody is...stupid.
    I have to admit that it would be nice to have another woman around to complain about a man to, who actually knows exactly what you're talking about!

    Totally agree! I enjoy the show and if they are happy with it, good for them. Now when they complain about not getting enough time with him, that annoys me because they know what they were getting into.

    And I can't get over Robin leaving her kids for that long! 11 days I think? And how long did they even know the other "moms" before that?
