Season 6 of Sister Wives

Forums: 


Season 6 of Sister Wives is well underway and this week they are finishing up a road trip with a stop in Montana. They are going to meet the Collier family, a guy with two wives, in Montana. It still surprises and amazes me we have this on TV, as ten years ago I never would have thought this day would come. Big Love, Sisterwives, Polygamy USA, My Five Wives, and a special on the Darger Family, Love Times Three, have all started a movement to take us "out of the polygamy closet". Sister wives airs on TLC on Sunday Nights. If you can't watch, record:) and show our support. They are changing perception and laws!

And Utah Decides to Fight Back

Forums: 

In a somewhat zippy, yet not unexpected twist, the State of Utah has decided to appeal the almost year old ruling decriminalizing polygamy.

One of many articles

For a clear, and deep read into the move by the State of Utah, Jonathan Turley's blog is it. He is the Brown family's lawyer and a professor. Eloquently written, this is the best description out there on the process.

By studying the DNA of 623 males from 51 populations, the researchers found more genetic diversity in the DNA inherited from mothers than they did in the DNA inherited from fathers.

Salt Lake Tribune Comes Out in Support of the Sisterwives Family

Forums: 

The Salt Lake Tribunes Editorial Staff comes out in favor of not perusing the anti polygamy law.

"The Browns, and those in similar situations, aren’t seeking the state’s blessing or recognition. Just the right to be left alone. Without some evidence of another crime, that’s just what the state should do."

I have removed some of the posts in one of the threads this evening. One or two thoughtful, long, posts were removed in the process due to the way the forums operate, and I am sorry to have lost them.

These message stay here as long as we keep the site up. It would be most appreciated if a post begins to degrade into personal insults, if you would take that to the private messages feature. We can all disagree, without being disagreeable. Remember, first and foremost, we have a common belief in the freedom of people to live plural marriage.
