Plyg Talk - TLC's Sister Wives is back and I want to head to Utah for a group hug

Yay! My Favorite Polygamist family is back on Sunday Nights!

TLC's 'Sister Wives' season 2 started Sunday night and I was hooked. In this first episode of the second season we not only see, but I reall got to FEEL the

fear

anxiety

love and

bravery

this family experiences as they 'come out of the closet' about their lifestyle.

Are you brave enough to be true to yourself?

As I watched the premier I found myself admiring this family unit for being so honest with themselves and not wanting to hide anymore.

We witness the behind-the-scenes activity and discussion that happends before they go on the Today Show and launch themselves and their family onto the public stage.

We see the panic that sets in when they realize word has spread fast over the Internet...including BLOGS and they rush back to help their kids deal. Many bloggers were not so nice. (I was secretly hoping they would say "TwoferMom was one of the nice ones".)

As dangerous as it will be for them, they are teaching their kids (and even some of us viewers) a valuable lesson about standing up for who you are.

This is a lesson that also teaches acceptance!

Acceptance but...

Of course, this only works because they seem like a loving, and functional family with a secret that does not seem to be hurting anyone - including their kids. Were this a family of 13 year old child brides I would not feel the same way and unfortunately, until now those are the polygamist families that have been in the press.

This functional and happy family has taken on the role of introducing the world to a more realistic polygamist life so that their kids and grandkids don't have to hide.

At the end of the episode the wives chime in on whether, knowing what they do now, they would still choose to come out. The answers made me want to give them all a big hug.

'Sister Wives' is on Sunday nights on TLC.

Watch then come here and comment. This is going to be a great season!

I find Kody obnoxious and self centered. The women I like, but him I can't stand.

You know, after watching the first few episodes I was amazed that there were still women (*intelligent* women) who would choose to deal with a situation like that -- sharing their husband and their time with other women, other families. But then I realized that women make sacrifices all the time for the sake of their families, and that other decisions (to put up with a man with a gambling problem, or one who works crazy hours, or one who's just not very nice to them) might be seen as just as crazy. So I want to give them the benefit of the doubt...if it works for them, well...

@Jodi what I like about Kody is that he can be a total schmuck and he knows it and admits it. I'm not sure if I read him as self-centered. Obnoxious, sometimes.

@Colleen I thought the same thing then realized these women aren't choosing to share a husband as much as they seem to be choosing to share the role of mom in a large family. Does that make sense? Maybe that's my next blog post on this!

I love the show! I have seen all of the adults except for Janelle and some of the kids. I was surprised to see that they really are the way the are shown on TV, not much "acting" going on and I love it! I was actually looking for reviews on season two so far and ran across your site. I am also a twin mom and just started a blog! www.crazytwinmama.blogspot.com

hello i just wanted to say i see nothing wrong with the way they live they dont take any thing from society like food stamps or afdc,the children are well taken care of and loved. I feel like maybe u should stop bothering people who have a family that is working and making a good family value and raising young people that will make valued adults in this sociaty, and maybe worry more about women have 6 babies on afdc and foodstamps and can afford to be inpreganted withou working. makes u thing were she got that money ? Leave these people alone just because it not the normal does not mean its not wright because who r any of us to judge? JUDGE THY AND LET THY BE JUDGED .
