Becoming Sister Wives : Becoming Sister Wives
Publication Date: 1 May 2013
The uncensored, New York Times bestselling memoir by the polygamist stars of the hit show Sister Wives, Kody and his four wives openly discuss what it's like living in a plural marriage.
Since TLC first launched its popular reality program Sister Wives, the Browns have become one of the most famous families in the country. Now Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn reveal in their own words exactly how their special relationship works-the love and faith that drew them together, the plusses and pitfalls of having sister wives, and the practical and emotional complications of a lifestyle viewed by many with distrust, prejudice, even fear.
With the candor and frankness that have drawn millions to their show, they talk about what makes their family work, addressing the topics that intrigue outsiders: How do the four relationships differ? What effect does a polygamous upbringing have on their children? What are the challenges-emotional, social, or financial-involved in living this lifestyle? Is it possible for all four sister wives to feel special when sharing a husband-and what happens when jealousy arises? How has being on camera changed their lives? And what's it like to add a new wife to the family-or to be that new wife?
Filled with humor, warmth, surprising insights, and remarkable honesty, this is a singular story of plural marriage and all the struggles and joys that go with it. At its heart, it's a love story-unconventional but recognizable in the daily moments of trust, acceptance, forgiveness, passion, and commitment that go into making one big, happy, extraordinary family.
