I am secretly/not-so-secretly obsessed with this show:
I have been debating why I like this show so much. Daniel hates it, I don't know if I necessarily LIKE it so much as I am ENTHRALLED by it. (Okay, I like it. Actually, I love it. But not the point right now.)
Polygamists have always been weird to me. Not so much because of the multiple wives for the husband (though I think that's...different.) but more so for the Sister Wives part.
I am WAY too jealous to deal with that. I have horrid horrid jealousy problems and it's hard for me to imagine someone else NOT having the raging jealousy problem I have. I mean, he procreates with all four of them. That just...in my brain, it's wired to think that's cheating and that my husband didn't think I was good enough on my own. So I know I would ever be okay with it.
I think that's why I find it so fascinating. I just have no foothold to understand it. It's like watching unicorns prance around in a field full of four leaf clovers while Harry Potter gives me a chocolate frog while talking to me about how he saw Wolverine the other day walking down Cherry Tree Lane.
It's truly unbelievable to me how well this family functions and how normal they all are. They have such a great family and I am in awe of it because it's not something I expect when I think of polygamists.
I think of the long dresses, french braids and to be frank, abuse. So it's nice to see a family that's just a family. They are normal people with normal people who live a different life than my own.
I think they are awesome and I am glad they came out of hiding because they have nothing to be ashamed of. I think it's GREAT how they are changing people's perceptions about polygamy. I know they changed mine. In the long run, this is their faith. They aren't harming anyone. What's the big whoo-ha?
|See how happy they all are? Do they know that their husband made a baby with someone else besides them? HOW ARE THEY NOT FUMING? My peasant mind doesn't understand it. But I applaud these women who whole-heartedly live their faith.|
I am pretty sure Janelle is my favorite Sister Wife. I think she is just so nice, and level headed and awesome. But then again, Meri seems like someone awesome I would want to be best friends with and Christine seems like so much fun and Robin is so understanding. So I mean, really, I can see why Kody wanted to marry them all.
They are all freaking awesome.
And I will continue to watch this show until my brains rot out.
