    Second season premiere on TLC tonight. Looks like they're in a bit of trouble. Anyone plan on watching?

    I've seen just bits and pieces of a couple shows. It took a few minutes to figure out what was going on. When I lived in Arizona, I would occasionally see polygamist families.

    They seem like decent people with well adjusted kids. But it's still pretty creepy. And illegal of course.

    I'm anxious to see if he's been charged.

    I saw their interview with one of the major news anchors. (Can't remember which one)

    Anyways it seems like he is a whipped little puppy. Also his first/legal wife has hooked up her husband with some of the other wives if I remember right.

    Nice family with a strange custom. Definitely not my cup of tea but what ever floats your boat I guess.

    I'm not sure what the legal issue is, but they live pretty large. Huge home, many cars, etc. I have a feeling they may be using some creative accounting to avoid taxes or are getting some govt. cheese. That's the issue with many of these polygamous families. Wife #3 doesn't work so she gets welfare for her "illegitimate children". I may look into it later. I haven't seen the show yet. I taped it.

    From what I understand from that interview is they have to be pretty frugal with their money. All of them work except one of the wives so she can stay home and take care of the children.

    Who knows. They may be collecting some sort of welfare......

    I was surfing along one night a few months ago and came upon this "Reality" show. My curiosty is still sustaining an interest in it. The women seem to truly care for one another and the husband seems very sensitive to the needs of the "sister wives" and has an innate ability to tolerate with understanding, their many moods as they fluctuate daily to make demands upon him. For some reason though..lol..I have a feeling he is very happy when he has to leave for work every morning. :)

    Nobody can live large on welfare.
