I Want to Have Sister Wives.

Since becoming a fan of the show "Big Love" I have become so envious of the support system there- especially the fact that there are so many adults to do the work for one family. I think it's wonderful that they have eachother. I had somewhat of that sort of relationship with my husband's sister before we moved out of state. She and her two children were abandoned by her ex husband and then we sort of adopted her into our family. I loved her children as my own and she loved my children as her own. We worked together to prepare all meals and did our shopping together and shared household responsibilities and responsibilities with the kids. It was really nice and I actually miss it a lot. I know that eventually she would probably remarry and become her own family again, but I was really happy with our family. But I had a husband and she didn't. I don't know if I would really be able share my husband with another woman, but it would be really nice to have the other woman in the house for companionship and teamwork. It was also really nice to always have another woman on my side when my husband was being unreasonable.

I think the women that share a husband must care deeply for each other or it will be very difficult. Why not share? It doesn't take away his feelings for you. When you have a second child, you still love the first child and in some ways more so. I think it is difficult at first, when the second wife is new. Once the new is over and everyone gets back to normal it is easier.

Hi there,<br />
<br />
I Have been with my girlfriend now for 4 years and we have been having a good time and are madly in love. She recently told me she is Bisexual and has kept from me for a while as she thought i would react negative to it. Howeve I embraced it as was extremely hammy that she was open enough to tell me how she honeslty felt.<br />
<br />
Any way to the point..... i allowed her to experiment with other girls but she always wanted me to be involved, she has been seriously been thinking about having a 3 way relationship with me her and another girl. I have been researching about it and it seems logical that people do get jealous but what seems to be the trend is tri couples who are honest and have good communication seem to weather the storm.<br />
<br />
What I'm asking is not if you think its right but where would i find a female who shared the same values as us and had a lot of love to give not only a female but also a male<br />

I agree, the two women in the relationship have to truly love each other. This will help with the jealously issues. The other thing that is really going to help is learning to talk to the other people in the relationship as soon as any little twinge of jealously starts forming. This is how my poly family deals with this type of thing.

I think the only way the jealousy can be dealt with is if the women truly love each other, and if sex is looked at rationally.

I actually have a co-wife, but the attitudes surrounding this situation are a little different in my faith community. I love her and she loves me and our kids are one big noisy mess, but we love them too. I write about my life with her and some of the real and at times difficult issues surrounding polygyny on my blog, and I am an advocate for Poly-rights. If same sex couples can gain acceptance then why can't we?

I think polygamy is selfish when there is one father and many children. I do think that if there is an equal amount of mother/father influence it makes for a great type of community.

I don't think that I could ever handle polygamy, but I can definitely see the benefit of having several people to take care of a house. I like the idea of community around.
