Polygamy. Family Tension. A fascinating story. Sister Wives has always had so many different elements of issues to bring to the table. When the show first premiered, America was fascinated by the family. The kids, their religion, how the wives dealt with their husband sleeping with another woman. We have followed along for several seasons while we watched their move to Las Vegas, Jenelle's weight loss story, problems with the kids, and Kody taking on new wife Robyn.
All the wives have very different personalities, and my favorite wife is Jenelle. She is always calm in the face of chaos, and she seems to be the glue that holds the family together. She is very accurate with her finances, and she takes good care of her 5 children. No matter what is happening with Kody, she is always there, a pillar of strength, while battles wage around her. Sometimes I wonder how she is able to put up with Meri considering how Meri has treated her in the past. Christine is always whining, and Kody shows lots of attention to new wife Robyn. In fact, he shows her SO much attention, it's frankly amazing that the other wives haven't tried to take her down! As my husband jokes, it is probably a good thing that alcohol is not part of their religion, otherwise things would get ugly VERY fast.
Now, all the kids are heading off to college one by one,(as I wonder how they pay for all of this) and right on cue, their mothers have meltdowns as they leave. The family just bought four large homes on a cul-de-sac in Las Vegas, and they hope that it will entice the older children to come home again. All of the homes are brand new and look expensive. I have to wonder how they are going to pay for all this once the show is done! There are only so many storylines producers can come up with, and it seems like Sister Wives could be drawing to a close. I would miss the family, as I have enjoyed watching their journey over the past couple of years. I have to wonder, however, how they are planning for their life after the show. Hopefully, they have managed their finances well and will be able to keep on the mortgages on their new homes!
What do you think? Will you miss Sister Wives when it is finished? Let me know in the comments!
