4thefamily.us statement and clarification

Forums: 

I feel compelled at this time to restate the intent and purpose of this site. 4thefamily is a community. It is a place to discuss the subject of Polygyny (closed relationship). Some have come here with the intent of finding a new partner through this site. While it is a possibility that people can meet through a community such as this, it is not the intended purpose of the site. If that is your intent here, you will most likely be disappointed. 4thefamily is not a dating site.

Also, 4thefamily remains open to those who wish to discuss polygyny and all of its ramifications, blessings, curses, successes, failures, celebrations, ups, downs, etc...
That means there will be a wide spectrum of opinion and thought regarding polygyny as it relates to each individual here.

That said, if there is any abuse or infraction of the stated guidelines/terms & conditions of the site, please let a moderator know so we can keep the spirit of this community on track.

Great Review on Polygamy: USA, the new series on National Geographic Channel

Forums: 

During the pilot episode of the documentary series, “Polygamy, USA,” two women are out on a date with their husband talking about how they need a new wife.

Wife One says to Wife Two that she’d prefer a new wife who can cook interesting meals, maybe a Mexican? They chuckle and consider other attributes, maybe she could be a massage therapist? They settle back on the Mexican concept. ”Dude,” says Wife One, “it’s all about the food.”

This glib moment is revealing about several things:

1. Though it’s essentially patriarchal, women in polygamous families do have “a voice.”

2. Fundamentalist mormons use the word “dude.”

3. Mothers of young children care more about getting help around the house than pretty much anything else.

Top 10 Marriage Stories

5. Polygamy Activism

Polygamists, perhaps emboldened by the gains made by same-sex-marriage activists, have started advocating for their type of family. In February, Kody Brown, husband of four, father of 17 and the central figure in the popular Lifetime reality show Sister Wives, sued the state of Utah, claiming religious discrimination. He and others, including the Darger family (three wives, 26 children), have been writing and talking openly about their way of life in an effort to have polygamy decriminalized. The courts in Utah have agreed to hear the case.

DARGER Family Special will air on TLC December 18th at 10 PM ET

Grad Student Studying American Polygamy Attitudes

Forums: 

Hello my name is Phillip Madison and I am a student studying American attitudes toward polygamy. As you already are probably aware, there have been many recent national news stories and television shows that address the topic of polygamy and people seem to be genuinely curious about it as a lifestyle.

I'm currently running a survey for my dissertation and was hoping to get responses to some questions about attitudes toward polygamous lifestyle. Any responses you could help me get would be much appreciated and I'd gladly make my findings available for anyone who is curious. All responses are anonymous and I am not interested in who survey-takers are, just what they think. Thank you, and I hope to hear from you soon!
