I think the whole thing is ridiculous- who wants to share a man?

I think it is demeaning to women. Perhaps in biblical times it was necessary to have multiple wives as many women died in childbirth, and I’m sure they needed to increase the population at that time. But now, to share a man, have too many kids to count…who needs it?
I’d like to see a show where one woman have four or five husbands…now that I could see-sign me up:)

Just watched the episode and the Richarfs are SO weird! And one of the wives really ticked me off saying that marriage and having children- whether monogamy or polygamous or having many children or being Barron- they are all options in the Bible. Excuse me, but when did being Barron become an option??? My husband and I have been trying for years to have a baby and cannot conceive…believe me I didn’t choose that option! Don’t use such stupid explanations to try and justify your polygamist life! Idiots!

I am getting a little tired of these men whenever they want something done their way pull out” It came from God” card. Really? And Rebecca….if you are touting anything goes…whatever works for each family …sorry sweetie that is NOT Christian Dogma. That is like swinger life style.

“It seems that some of these Missouri polygamists have crossed that kinky line, but the Richards are down with that.” – Not exactly. While many evangelical Christians polygamists are not as dogmatic about this issue as Mormon polygamists (and it is often debated) there is a whole spectrum of possible behaviors, including sharing a bed and bedroom simply because their house is small. We do not know what they actually felt about it for themselves, only that they thought it should be private and the decision of each family themselves.

“And neither Kody nor Nathanael seem particularly sensitive to ‘first wife’syndrome.” – This is not true. They are sensitive to it. The thing is the first wives are believers in polygamy. What they believe is that it is a trade off, not that there is no downside. They just believe that the trade is worth it.

“why would any normal married man, who didn’t grow up as a Mormon or in a fundamentalist offshoot of the Mormon church, even begin to think about polygamy as an option? ” – Normal is a loaded word, but men often think of having a relationship with more than one woman. There are some people who think mongamy is not normal.

The Richard are weird! They look weird and they act weird…..what is there reason for polygamy besides him being a hound dog and needing a reason for his very bad behavior….as usual plain it on God…who I am sure does not support a perverted and humiliating lifestyle for any of his children!!

A lot of Christians say they follow the Bible as their guide, but few really do. If you did actually follow the Bible as your guide what would it look like? It might very well look like the Richard family.

When the Richards said they knew a family that shared the marital bed, I believe they were speaking about themselves. They just weren’t ready to share that information for fear of judgement and rightfully so! Those three sleep together!

If you notice in the show they said families (plural). They did not answer the question toward themselves. You might note that they had a small house. It is possible that they share a bed and a bedroom without having marital relations with each other. Evangelical polygamists are less dogmatic on this issue than Mormon polygamists.

Ah, religion… Not just a scapegoat for your conscience, but for your marriage too!

Little Abigail Richards, about 10 years-old, is wise beyond her age. She confides to Christine Brown her confusion over why animals like roosters can have more than one wife, but people can’t.

So these kids are “sweet and grounded” huh?????????? Why does this child not know that animals don’t “marry” and that sex to them is just a biological function to maintain survival of the breed. (No dogs breeding cats, for example.)

Why does this child not understand that humans are higher functioning with the ability to think, make decisions, and must live with the consequences of those decisions????

I can totally see why Meri and Rebecca are having feelings of betrayal. If I was a first wife, when the second “wife” was mentioned, I’d be buying a shovel. And making plans to use it. Someone tell me again how “love is multiplied, not divided” for the females in a pleural “marriage.”

Someone tell me again how “love is multiplied, not divided” for the females in a pleural “marriage.” – You are not watching close enough. The first wives are supporters of polygamy. They believe that the advantages of the large families and sister wive(s) are worth the pain that they endure.
