  • I personally am wayyyy to jealous to be able to have another woman in the house. However, I respect their decision and after learning more and more about their lifestyle, I kind of admire them. They seem to have strong family units in general and I admire any woman who can control their jealousy that well. On the other hand I kind of think that if you can share you husband that easily, you probably aren't IN love with him although I have no doubt that they love him.

  • In my belief there is one woman for every man and that God intended this from the beginning. I feel that sometimes Polygamists are jealous and or seeking attention. To be able to brain wash a person into thinking that it is "ok " to have sex with other women who are "wife's" is ridiculous BTMO!

  • i think if it works for some people thats good, there are pros and cons to it, having a large family and always some one with you to help raise your kids in your way of belief is awesome but you have to get along with other women and share your husband which isnt..

  • Its not for me, but I fully support the right of any consenting adult to involve oneself with any other (or however many other) consenting adult(s) he/she chooses.

  • I think that it is their lives no one has any business bashing it. And to the "inbred" comment...there is a difference in having many wives (polyamory/NOT inbreeding) and having sex with your son or daughter (inbreeding/incest) I would NOT partake in that lifestyle though.

  • I think its ok as long it works for those people. Not everyone understands it because its an alternate lifestyle, but if everybody in the situation is ok with it why should i judge? Polygamy is the accepted way of life in several African countries. And its been working there for thousands of years.

  • Not something I could handle being a part of. I would get jealous too easily.

  • Why would anyone want one than one set of in-laws at one time???

    I have issues with MIL's CNA that comes in during the week!! I'm pretty sure I couldn't deal with extra wives in the house. It's not jealousy for me, it's about control and how things are done. I have OCD issues.
