As awesome and hilarious as a show on TLC sounds, it will never be what you want. My Husband’s Three Wives will surely be one of those major disappointments.
These folk live in Texas. Now this Brian dude only has one legal wife, but two spiritual wives. So the title of this show is already misleading.
Brian is a psychologist. I can’t quite wrap my mind around that. He doesn’t believe in monogamy since it leads to more divorces. I have a feeling that more marriages were ended by trying to bring a second woman around. I reject your stupid theory, Brian.
Brian married his first wife legally. Then he started sleeping with and then moving in the other two ladies.
The thing about polygamy that rubs me the wrong way is the treatment of women. He just started sleeping with other woman? That doesn’t seem like a responsible and respectful things to do. Have as many wives and husbands as you want! But don’t be a jerk about it, okay?
Would you believe me if I told you that Brian had issues with his parents? He does! Shocker!
They are celebrating anniversaries? That doesn’t seem quite right. A lot of this doesn’t seem quite right.
Did I mention there are a million kids running around? There are.
Wife number one isn’t happy about the potential wife number three. Wife number one stated that one person needed to be the bigger person. Which lends itself so perfectly to the “No, it’s big of me” joke.
Okay, here’s how it works. Everyone should be in love with each other. The man loves the two women? Fine. Then the two women have to be in love with each other two. And, hey, maybe they’ll throw another dude in there. As long as everyone is in love with him, it’s all cool.
Brian just invited the first two wives to help pick out wife number three’s wedding band. There’s salt in the old wound for you.
The kids aren’t too happy about this new wife either. Add that to the reasons that Brian is a complete bastard.
Then Brian can’t handle the stress coming from the three women, so he leaves everyone at home and goes out to the bar. That goes on the reason list.
The third “wife” came in and saved their home financially. With neither of the wives working, you’re saying they were short on cash? How is that even possible? With the husband working one job, they should have plenty of money rolling in!
Then the wives voted number three out. Good for them. Everyone in the house is now happy. Except for Brian. Who is mopey.
TLC is a channel full of people I have no sympathy for.
