Boring. Didn't enjoy it as much as the book by the Browns (Sister Wives).

Interesting subject matter appropriate to the modern redefinitions of adult contracts of matrimony. Given the Biblical characters who celebrated human diversity by having numerous wives it's difficult to make a case that monogamy is the only spiritually acceptable approach. And in modern times multiple divorces in such high percentages of the population amount to women having multiple husbands and men having multiple wives separated from one another by the thickness of a sheet of paper issued from a courtroom. The Mormon preference for polygamy will almost certainly be revisited time and again

This isn't as good as Becoming Sister Wives. The Browns are way more zany which makes them more interesting, to me at least.

Very interesting controversy. Though the adults involved seem very responsible people and loving parents, it still leaves me uncomfortable with the whole thing. When Alina testfied before the Supreme Court of British Columbia and was as asked if she had the freedom to have three husbands, she said "yes she has that freedom but it is against her values". Why, in her mind, don't these "values" apply to her husband Joe? I would guess the hierachy of the male in religious doctorine is the culprit!

Bizarre, even for this "lifestyle". The timing of "marriages" and "marrying" sisters just seems a bit off. I find it hard to believe the State still finds these sorts of relationships illegal, because women can now find work almost equal in pay to that of a man, but the secrecy of these sects does allow for bad secrets to exist within. Otherwise, it's sort of a self-punishing arrangement, is it not?

Eye-opening in that not all Fundamentalist Mormons are FLDS. A valuable read for anyone seeking information on alternatives to monogamy, even if not personally interested in religion-based polygamy (polygyny in most cases).

Thought provoking! Recommended for fans of Big Love and Sister Wives. HBO actually used a Mormon magazine cover story on the Dargers as inspiration for Big Love.
