Acceptance Of Polygamy Has More Than Doubled In America

The Gallup poll found that acceptance of polygamy has more than doubled, going from seven percent acceptability to 16 percent since 2001. But for some reason, in 2006, acceptance for the lifestyle reached an all-time low with only five percent considering it “morally tasteful.” That same year, HBO’s Big Love premiered, about a man and his three wives, and just four years later TLC’s Sister Wives started its run, so maybe Americans just need TV shows to kill any hang-ups they have. Read the rest here: Acceptance Of Polygamy Has More Than Doubled In America

Season 6 of Sister Wives

Forums: 


Season 6 of Sister Wives is well underway and this week they are finishing up a road trip with a stop in Montana. They are going to meet the Collier family, a guy with two wives, in Montana. It still surprises and amazes me we have this on TV, as ten years ago I never would have thought this day would come. Big Love, Sisterwives, Polygamy USA, My Five Wives, and a special on the Darger Family, Love Times Three, have all started a movement to take us "out of the polygamy closet". Sister wives airs on TLC on Sunday Nights. If you can't watch, record:) and show our support. They are changing perception and laws!

For a clear, and deep read into the move by the State of Utah, Jonathan Turley's blog is it. He is the Brown family's lawyer and a professor. Eloquently written, this is the best description out there on the process.

In the genetic history of our species, the mamas outnumber the papas. A new study in Investigative Genetics reports that females have made a bigger contribution than men.

By studying the DNA of 623 males from 51 populations, the researchers found more genetic diversity in the DNA inherited from mothers than they did in the DNA inherited from fathers.
