Which came first Sister Wives or Lifetime's "19th Wife"?Suddenly such an interest. It's sad that people believe there's nothing wrong with bad behavior or bad judgement, but there it is. I don't watch reality TV unless it's my day off, nothing better on TV, and since it's my day off, I'm really too lazy to get up and change the channel. Fortunately, that is also a rarity since there's an episode of CSI or Law & Order on almost any channel I watch.
What's with the "gurrrr men" stuff. All the women knew what was going on and what they were getting into. Since they are willing partners(?) in this, they have no cause to be mad. If they do, they should simply leave. If they were dumb enough to have kids with this guy, it really is their problem. The guy's living a fanticy -- four or five partners and they all like it! I NEVER had it THAT good. I really don't see why YOU are getting mad. You aren't involved other than by watching on TV. The solution to that is REAL simple -- turn off the television or change the channel. You proabably have a hundred or more to choose from. As for me, I'd NEVER heard of the program until the lovely Ms Brandon let me in on it. I still haven't watched and won't. And, no it isn't everybody's business just because it's on television. It's simply a case of finding the drumbeat you want to march to.
Yes-it is indeed their business-however when it goes nation wide on a Reality TV show it becomes everyone's business.My hunch on Kody Brown is he is a 41 year old man going through a man's change of life crisis with his age & his eyes are on a 31 year old brunette this time.
I really feel for the 3 other women especially for the pregnant one; could he not wait until she had her baby and was feeling like an attractive woman again? How insensitive of him.
He meets up with this attractive 31 year old babe who he has dated for 4 months and wants her close to him so he can alternate with 4 women to sleep with & one of them young and pretty.
Illegal or not - he's a pig. I kind of liked him when I first watched this show-but not anymore. I have heard of this polygami lifestyle and never had an opinion because most polygami woman are kind of dowdy with there boufant hair do's and all their kids. This new one is is a little different than that-his other women were pretty when they were young too. After watching the show the other night I had a change of opinion-he's a man wanting a young women and like it or not the other women have to accept that he will be sleeping with her and probably spending most of his time at her place. gurrrrrr men!!
Personally I believe it is their own business. He is only legally married to the 1st one & the others are "spiritual" unions. How can anyone say this is wrong, illegal & immoral when you have people that have multiple kids by multiple people...it's basically the same thing. If none of them were married or called themselves married, it wouldn't be an issue. As long as all the consenting adults wish to be there then it's their business, not ours.
Rebecca, it does make economic sense to have multiple bread winners these days also & just look at all those tax deductions he has...I'm actually jealous!
I can satisfy your urges (cough):
Baylee, disturbing suggestion, but some people draw the line to only include consenting human adults. =P
Why does a man need so many wives? I want to hear a story about a woman with more than one husband, after all anything goes. How about getting married to a horse or something after all it's their business, right?
Legion...Trust me on this one -- it IS possible. And FUN, too. I can't explain on this forum -- the VA would freak, but it IS possible.
Rebecca...Several sister-wives? Hey, whatever floats your boat. As for as the other problem, just make sure they're all Cowboys fans. No problem. Annnnd, make'em buy their own beer.
Just tryin' to help.
Seems weird to me, btw to each their own.
I have a little problem understanding how 3 or more women can manage not to get jealous of each other sharing one man, or on the flip side how 3 men can't get jealous sharing one woman.
They must all be just sheep, and follow whatever directions they are given.
Just for the record, I wouldn't want several husbands. Can you imagine all the chaos during football season? I couldn't buy enough beer or make enough cheese dip to please everyone. I might need the help of several sister-wives...
Rebecca...I AM open to the idea of women having multiple husbands -- again provided everybody involved is okay with the arrangement. Either way -- multiple wives or husbands -- it'll provide fodder for the back fence gossips.
I don't think that our "benevelent government" has any business telling its citizens with whom they may set up a household. Think about it this way...if five SINGLE people want to play house, that would NOT be against any law in the land that I'm aware of. Going to some kind of preacher who's willing to marry them shouldn't be any more objectionable.
If you say it should be legal for the man to have several wives, you should be open to women having several husbands. =P
I can understand how polygamy might have been allowed during a time when women were not allowed to support themselves. It probably was a form a welfare when no other form existed. There's no room for polygamy in the modern world. In fact, it would make more sense, in this day and age, for a woman to have several husbands as men can't get pregnant - try as they might.
I've always wondered why bigamy was illegal.
If they are truly fundamentalist Mormons, the fact is that the Mormon faith (originally) allowed (and encouraged) polygamy. Isn't declaring polygamy illegal infringing on these people's right to practice their faith?
Who cares how many wives he has, the children appear to be well taken care of, and they seem to be polite and decent people.
In my humble opinion, Sister Wives isn't nearly as shallow and banal as The Jersey Shore.
I agree with wayward - let them feel the pain of multiple sources of nagging without interference from the government.
Oh but wait for the inevitable claim that it leads to incest, Satan and all his gay minions...
I've never understood the attraction of having more than one wife at a time. I get into enough trouble with one; four might be fatal. But, Kyle, be careful about taking on a polygamist. If he's tough enough to survive a bunch of women in the house, he might be too tough. :)
All jokes aside, how is this a concern of the government? As long as everybody agrees to what is going on, there is no abuse of anybody, and everybody involved in of legal age, why does the state give a rats hindquarters about this? If they didn't claim to be married, the state would have no say in the matter of who sleeps with whom or how many whether singly or collectivly. I think the biggest objections come from people who just aren't happy unless they're bellyaching about how others live and can't keep their noses out of other people's affairs.
I forgot to add "zing" to my last comment.
I'll take on any polygamist - mono y mono.
I appreciate your comment and think you're a pretty awesome poster, but in my defense, that joke was made because I am too lazy to look up how to spell his last name and not because I was necessarily trying to be funny.
I look forward to your next comment, in which you can insult my overuse of the nickname "Schnookum Bear" in regards to my husband.
I'd stoop to make a joke about Utah but it wouldn't be very bigamy.
I have not watched to show only the previews. I find that guy too creepy.
When talking about the creepiness of the show with others the subject came up as to whether the 3 or 4 of them are legally married by the state or whether it is just a religious thing or if they just all live together and consider themselves "married". I considered watching to see if this issue was addressed but decided it might not be revealed until the last episode of the season. The creepiness factor was too much. I haven't watched.
Aprill, I think you're a fairly decent writer and a pretty rad person, but seriously...
"M. Night Schamayalanadingdong"
Very disappointing Brandon.
There are plenty of interesting and fresh jokes to be made about the subject at hand without resorting to the lowest of low hanging fruits. "Hey, I'm going to reference the guy with the funny name and make the same joke every other unfunny person with a keyboard and some free time has made for the last decade."
I look forward to your next post, in which we find out the internet is really a series of tubes.
Interesting Aprill. Granted this is supposed to be "reality TV," I wonder if the law has ever checked the people in those Oprah, etc. type shows in which they are interviewing people that have been abused, etc.
