Big Faith

The show is called Big Love but polygyny really takes Big Faith

One on One?

OK, so here’s the thing:

I love polygyny.

I love having time to myself and I love that when my husband is with me the time is special and I don’t take him for granted.  I love living in a house where the other wing is family, I love our kids running back and forth.  I love family vacations where we caravan together (me and cw in one car with half the kids, dh in the other with the rest of the kids).  I love having a sister who knows the little quirks about my husband that make me want to wring his neck sometimes – and who sometimes reminds me to be patient and other times offers to join me in the neck wringing! 

The prospect of going back to monogamy after all these years is depressing to me.  If it really happens I’ll be so sad.

    I just found this and your beautiful view of P (thus far in my readings) really akes me long for it sometimes. (then I read Safa’s blog and cringe…it’s a 50/50 feeling.
    I look forward to reading the rest soon!

    Ma’shaa Allah, I agree with you sister, I cannot imagine myself alone with DH with no CW (yikes) I love my breaks, my weekends to myself with the children, and I love our family time. I am a second wife, check out my blog at

  7. I feel the same way. I could never have my husband at home all the time.. he’d drive me crazy and i’d be sending him to his mothers house for sure. I could never live life as a ONLY wife.
