Last night, I caught up on this past Sunday's Sister Wives, and a few things seemed to be a little, well, strange.
I realize that people say things and they're taken out of context, but Meri (Kody Brown's first wife) made a comment about the fact that polygamy wouldn't be her first choice if it wasn't something dictated by her religion. It was sad, especially coming from Meri, because she goes through so much pain because she only had one daughter while her sister wives had many kids. Interestingly, in a past episode, Meri's daughter Mariah was the only teenager who said she'd choose polygamy. I wonder if that has to do with the fact that she wants a big family, possibly due to the fact that she fears that she won't be able to have multiple children if she follows in her mother's path.
Don't get me wrong - I have no problem with polygamy if all participants are willing to be a part of it. It bothers me that people would hurt their happy lives in order to bring in another wife to follow God's will. I believe that people should live moral and ethical lives, but not live in the fear of God or their religion. In Andy and Nicole's case, the polygamist lifestyle seemed to actually be a downfall of their religion, not something that they genuinely want to participate in.
In other random TV family news, Michelle Duggar of 19 Kids and Counting is pregnant with her 20th kid. Oh, my goodness.
