Polygamy

I started watching Big Love, the HBO show, and it is enthralling! I can't stop watching. I'm not sure how I feel about polygamy. Families are always tricky, and I don't see a huge difference between a polygamous one and a normal monogamous one. Are there any polygamous moms here? Does anyone have an opinion on them?

I have no opinion. Any relationship has the potential for abuse, and the potential to work. It's not my call to decide which is going to work for what people.

Ask me how you can be of at least average intelligence!

I really dont have an opinion on it because I dont know much aboit it. Id like to watch some reality shows about it just to better educate myself.

There are some polygamous wives on cafemom who have talked about it. I'm sure there are more who don't discuss it. I don't have an issue with polygamy as long as each person in the marriage chose to be there. They weren't assigned to someone, they weren't pressured into it and are all legal adults.

It is not for me. I completely respect those who are polygamous. It can work quite well for most people.

Great show. Couldn't do it tho. My guy was curious about that when I met him. I think he's realized I'm more then enough for him to handle tho. Enjoy the show-it's so good:)

Of course. No one should be okay with any kind of coercion or child abuse. I meant adult families and their lifestyle. I'm just so curious about it!

I didn't think I would like it, and now I'm having a mini marathon! It is good. It shows the good and the bad, even though it is entirely fictional.

i just asked my husband about how he feels about polygamy and he says 'does it go both ways'. he figures i can also have a mechanic/home depot kind of husband in addition to him lol this might not be a bad idea after all lol
