Have you seen this new reality show “Sister Wives” about a polygamist family in Utah?
I haven’t but I read that police are now investigating the husband, Kody Brown, who has four wives, 13 children and three stepchildren. I don’t understand why anyone would want four wives anyway. A wife and a secret hot mistress, I sort of get. But four wives?!
Apparently, he’s facing up to five years in prison. He’s probably hoping for at least a short sentence so he can get a little R & R.
Are there any female polygamists? Probably not. Can you imagine being married to four guys? Four times a day you’d have to say… “The orange juice is right there. On the top shelf. I know you didn’t see it but it’s right there. It might be slightly obscured by the milk but that does not mean it ceases to exist. See. Right there. You’re welcome.”
No, I’m definitely not interested in that.
I don’t think Rick would want four wives either because it would mean he’d have to have multiple conversations like this….
“Honey, I’m upset about our twins going to college,” I said to him this week. (Note to reader… Sometimes I get myself all teary eyed just thinking about Chase and Harlowe going to kindergarten but on this particular day, I decided to get even more worked up by imagining the day they go off to college and the house is blanketed in a sad, lonely silence.)
“You’re upset about the 5 month-old twins going to college?” he responded.
“Yes. What are we going to do with ourselves?”
“Go to the movies.”
“What are we going to do the next night?”
“Ok. What else?”
“Actually, honey, by the time our twins are in college, we’ll be too old to do anything. We’ll probably be in assisted living and they’ll just wheel us to the dining hall for happy hour.”
“Well, that sounds sort of fun. But I’m still sad about Chase and Harlowe going to college.”
“I know,” my husband said.
I’m pretty sure he’s going to stick with one wife.
