Kody Brown, with his four wives Meri, Janelle, Robyn and Christine and their combined 17 children, attempt to navigate life as a "normal" family in a society that shuns their lifestyle. From their unconventional family structure and living arrangements to financial challenges, each half hour episode exposes the inner workings of a polygamist household, revealing the unexpectedly tight-knit and loving relationships between Kody's wives. The series also captures the intense dynamics surrounding a man juggling three wives while attempting to keep it a secret from the outside world- but the general public is not the only challenge that the Brown family unit is facing.

Freedom to live your life as you like without hurting others.
2 January 2013 | by (California) – See all my reviews

I do not see anything wrong with Kody and his four wives being married. His ideals and motives are that love should be spread around and all of their beliefs are that Pologomy is their perfect way. I was raised a strict Catholic and have since shy-ed away from the "church religion" and have remained spiritual of my own choice.

I think Kody and his wives have the issues and problems any normal marriage with children may bring, but with 4 different women that all have very distinct personalities and different wants and needs. Kody is only one man trying to live as they believe. I have learned so much about Pologomy from watching this show and I can honestly say I love the idea of having sister wives and one husband. I love my husband with all my heart and soul and we have been together going on our 34th year now. But I would not have minded been in a marriage relationship such as the Browns have. So much love is there. Each has their own marriage with Kody, yet each are as sisters to each other. They all seem to help one another as it does take a tribe to raise children. And as I see it, this would be welcome in our home. I love large families, and love the idea of sister wives all working toward the same goal within their own marriages and lives yet they do it all together. Imagine the support you can get from each other. It does not bother me that my husband would be with another woman down the hall instead of with me. It is not like its someone I don't know or dislike. I welcome the others to share in his love. He is a very loving man and loves to please me in all ways. If he could make my sister wives feel as good as I do when I am with him. Then where is the bad in it? That I share my good life and good husband with 3 other women and in that they get to feel and share what I have? Where in the bible does it state it is wrong to give good love and a good life to others? I welcome the chance at having my bed all to myself and not having to deal with a man once in awhile. I imagine he would welcome the idea of being with another woman he could be with and share his heart and not be cheating. I would never mind sharing something wonderful. I admire the way he is the head of the families and they are all different, yet the children are all brothers and the wives love each other as sisters. In Gods eyes where would this be wrong. I think its beautiful. Life would be much more exciting, you would always have someone to talk to and visit with. God Bless the Brown families in their lives. I think Kody has beautiful families, and he is a loyal man with loyal beliefs about not having sex outside the marriage. Hooray! I just wish I had known about this sooner so I could have shared my life with 3 other great women with the same thing in common. Sharing our love and children with religion in our life and seeing our children love each other. I think its great and the government should stay the heck out of peoples personal choices on how they want to live their lives. We are a modern world not third world,we should be able to live our lives in freedom of choice of how our personal lives should be. After all we are the ones who live it. As long as you are not cheating the government for anything and you are doing your own thing and being enterprising. This is America. Live your life in freedom and freedom of choice and be at peace with it. Its your business and should not be anyone elses. My personal opinion..everybody has one. Thank you Brown family for allowing us to learn about how Poligomy really works.
