I watched this show on a lark, just to see what in the heck they were showing on tv now. It is featured on TLC and into its second season. It tells the story of the Brown family practicing polygamy.
I'm a little confused about the mechanics of this...I know Cody is married to Meri, his first wife, but is he married to the others? They've all had weddings, they've all had honeymoons, and they all have children. They say they are all wives but wouldn't this pop up in a computer program somewhere...BEEEP, this guy is already married! I don't know if they have a clerk just looking for someone married several times, or how do they handle that? I guess now that they have admitted they are breaking the law on national television, the officials are after them...they have moved.
They just moved to another state and they are showing their houses on tv...do they think no one will find them?
Don't get me wrong, I know there is much lee-way these days. Two mommies, two daddies, three generational families...and on and on. If they are not in my bedroom, I really don't care. I know what I believe and I am strong in that belief but there is also freedom to believe the way you want to.
I have been looking at the pluses to this and considering getting me some Sister Wives.
For the man, this is good. He has a schedule and takes turns staying with each wife and their children. What are the chances, during this rotation, that each woman will have a headache? Get one wife to start with, then add a younger one...and a younger one. The women are all glad when it's their turn...yep, tickled pink.
Cody seems to prefer blonds but the wives have chosen a brunette this time, yeah, right...the wives chose her!!! Note in the picture above how skinny she is, how much younger she is and then how far she is standing away from the group.
Don't get me wrong, I LIKE this family. They seem to instill values and respect and the children are happy. Who wouldn't be? One mom is home all the time, loves kids and loves to cook. Two or three moms were working and dad had a job...this is a successful family. Four family houses, four incomes, multiple cars...it just boggles my mind.
...and how about yard work? They have teenagers and they all help with yard work. Did I say this was a reality show? They even can afford to go on vacations! Sounding more like fiction all the time.
I wonder if the wives ever trade nights? Does Meri get first choice since she is First Wife? Does Cody ever say, not tonight, honey, I just want to snuggle?
I think I could do this! Come in from work and someone else has done the shopping, the cooking, and it's not my night...hurray!!! Four pay checks, and if you don't want to talk to your kids, send 'em to the other mom.
Seriously, I do like this show. I like the people. I can't wait to see what happens next.
