Pro-Polygamy Article in the Works


Hello, I am currently going to school for journalism in the midwest and am writing an article for class about polygamy. Since the institution is mainly looked at from a patriarchal perspective, I would love to get the point of view of a few sister wives or even a whole family (if it is permitted, of course). I feel that many people are looking at polygamy from the wrong perspective and would like to change their views. If you would like to talk to me, I'd love to hear your story or view any sources you may have to help me. Thanks!

NEW Polygamy Show: Need a Cast



My name is Brian and I am a reality TV producer. There is a network wanting us to film a new show based on happy families that practice Polygamy. I honestly wasn't sure where to look, so I decided to join the 4TheFamily forum and just come out and ask. I hope its okay that I'm doing this. If you have any questions, I would be glad to answer them right here in this forum or if they are private questions, you can hit me privately as well.

Below is the casting call for the show. We would like to begin filming in the next five weeks. Each family involved will be compensated $4k per episode, which is nice. If the ratings are good, the families can renegotiate for the next seasons. We normally run 13 episodes per season. I hope this finds everyone well. Thanks, - Brian

The Kody Brown Family from ‘Sister Wives’ family urges judge to decriminalize polygamy


Posted on: 7:54 am, September 18, 2012, by Ben Winslow

SALT LAKE CITY — In a new federal court filing, reality TV polygamist Kody Brown and his wives urge a federal judge to rule in their favor and decriminalize polygamy in Utah.

The filing in U.S. District Court on Friday rebuts arguments made by the state of Utah, which is seeking to uphold the polygamy ban. A federal judge has scheduled arguments for January in the case
Jonathan Turley, the lawyer for Kody Brown and his wives Meri, Christine, Janelle and Robyn, reminded the court that unlike other polygamy cases that involved minor children in plural marriages — the Browns are all consenting adults.

Deleted Threads


In the 7+ years we have been open I have deleted very few threads, instead opting to move them to the Endless Debate and Whining section if so deserved.

Today, I am exercising another option and deleting a tread. Name calling has never been allowed here and it is not going to be today either. If a person sets out to meet new people, going about it by issuing ultimatums, name calling and general viciousness are not tools to be used here.

There's quite a lot out there, though you have to hunt for it. If you want an unprejudiced look at polygamy, you may have to leave the western, "christian" world, altogether. All sorts of possibilities open up then. Here's a list I typed up for my own purposes, awhile back. I've read many of these books, others are still on my "to do list." Some of these books are quite old, but should be available second hand. The full text of some is available online. Happy reading!

The Rebellion of Yale Marratt (novel) Robert H Rimmer. A young man rebels against his privileged upbringing. The story begins in 1930's New England--the same setting as The Great Gatsby. But Rimmer's tale unfolds very differently.

Three-person civil union sparks controversy in Brazil


From the BBC:

A notary in the Brazilian state of Sao Paulo has sparked controversy by accepting a civil union between three people.

Public Notary Claudia do Nascimento Domingues has said the man and two women should be entitled to family rights.

She says there is nothing in law to prevent such an arrangement.

But the move has angered some religious groups, while one lawyer described it as "absurd and totally illegal".

The three individuals, who have declined to speak to the press, have lived in Rio de Janeiro together for three years and share bills and other expenses.

Ms Domingues says they have already opened a joint bank account, which is also not prohibited by any law.

Interesting Editorial - Polygamous and polyamorist relationships


Friday, August 3, 2012

You knew it was coming.
With gay marriages becoming legal in several states, it was just a matter of time before other people involved in non-traditional relationships wanted theirs legalized too and that is reflected in a story in the Aug. 6 edition of Time magazine titled, "I Do, I Do, I Do."

Polygamy is having more than one spouse. Polygyny is a man having more than one wife, polyandry is a woman having more than one husband, and polyamory is several people involved in sexual and romantic relationships with each other.
