Sister Wives: Why All the Interest in Polygamy?


sister-wives-returnsSister Wives is back on the air and everyone is buzzing about the reality series about a real-life polygamist family! Sister Wives second two picked back up Sunday night. The TLC reality series stars Kody Brown and his four wives—Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn—along with their 16 children.

Why is this show such a hit? What makes polygamy so interesting to watch?

Sister Wives season two follows the Browns’ bold decision to go public as polygamists on national television and the consequences of going public about their family.

In Sister Wives, Kody Brown is shared by four wives. What makes Kody Brown special enough to share with other wives? I don’t get it. What am I missing? Kody Brown is kind of scruffy, not that good looking and doesn’t appear to have an especially engaging personality!

Maybe I would understand the whole SHARING thing if it were, say ROBERT PATTINSON but Kody Brown?

The whole polygamy thing seems like it’s a bad deal for the wives but a good deal for the husbands. Please enlighten me as I’m not trying to judge.
