I watched a new show on Netflix last night called Three Wives, One Husband.
I don't know what it is about those plural marriage shows, but they hook me like a train wreck and I can't look away.
And, this one really is different.
It's less side-show-oddity and more this-is-what-is-for-these-people.
The part that really struck me was everyone's acknowledgement that this way of living was a choice.
Women that were considering being a third wife in a family courted the entire family for months at a time. They looked at the choice they were making. Considered the futures it would create.
Widows who had told their dying husband that they would consider his brothers as first choices for next-husbands met with the already-families and wives and everyone together looked honestly at what it would change.
And the ones that were committed to it, were willing to succeed at it, no matter...
