Okay, so I watched this show on TLC or discovery or whereverthehell it was last week for the first time ever. I know they have been doing this for months, maybe years. I've just always managed to have something else to do or watch when it was being aired. This past, whichever night it was, I actually sat through an episode. Wow.
Let me just get this out of the way to clear it up. I'm not about to go all 'Christian judgey' on anyone. Not my style. If it works for them, more power to them. I personally think it is a huge waste of the area's police and DSS resources to investigate them. He isn't breaking any laws that I can tell. He is legally married to the first wife and she is simply allowing him to have 3 mistresses besides.
I have a number of issues with it and questions about it. The issues are just mine because I am one seriously jealous bitch. I'm good with plenty of things, Darling Husband has always been an incorrigible flirt. He likes women and women like him. I had to learn to deal with it. He's curbed his nature somewhat but it doesn't change the basic fact that, like me, females are completely charmed by him. However, there are a few things that are just for me. Like his cock. It's for me and only me.
So most of my questions and bizarre curiosity are centered around their sex life. Surely that isn't a surprise to anyone. I mean, how do they determine who he sleeps with? Do they have a calendar that says wife one gets him on Sunday and Thursday night, wife 2 on Tues and Sat, wife 3 on Wed and Friday and when the hell does that leave for wife 4? Oh, Mondays, of course...what was I thinking?
Now assuming that none of the women are 'into' one another, that brings up a whole 'nother question. If he just happens to be being affectionate with one of the wives and they get all hot and bothered, is it cheating if they proceed and it isn't her turn?
My other problem with polygamy is that it all centers around the man. Why should so many women be content to share a single cock? What if I wanted brother husbands? Three of them could go out and earn good livings so we would be financially secure, the other one can stay home and help with domestic projects around the house. At night I would have my choice of 4 penises. Because every one is different, sometimes I would go with the sensitive one who makes sweet gentle love to me, sometimes I would go to the one who likes to play freaky deaky role playing games with me, some times I would go to the one that likes to be dominated, and sometimes I would go with the one who just likes to prop me on my knees and do me doggie style. Whatever my fancy at the time.
Fortunately for me, Darling Husband thinks that having more than one wife would surely be a nightmare (he lives with me y'all don't - he would know). But just for fun, I asked him how he would feel about brother-husbands. How would he feel about sharing me and my affections with other men. He's really not feeling that at all. I guess that settles it. We are a one man, one woman household.
