The polygamist lifestyle is once again explored in TLC’s “My Five Wives.” While the series covers the life of Brady Williams and his wives Paulie, Robyn, Rosemary, Nonie and Rhonda on TLC's My Five Wives, the idea of adoption is considered on the upcoming show. According to Friday's Entertainment Online, the idea of adoption is explored by Rhonda, one of the wives. Sharing with the adoption agency that her man is a good father, but only home so many nights (he is shared after all) there are unanswered questions.
While the situation looks difficult as the family has a Polygamist lifestyle, it appears that the decision of exploring the possibilities is the only path for Rhonda. Brady Williams does have 24 children on the series, but bringing one more child into the scenario is discussed and calls are made for consideration. The focus on making the children feel special and loved is important in any family and especially in such a large family. Being grateful is one of the keys to being happy and in this episode we see plenty of thankfulness, but is it intense because of the holiday or because of the life style choices?
Meanwhile, the family comes together for a big meal and the chance to share the love of the household is felt by everyone as it is Thanksgiving time. With everyone under one big roof, the family showcases how they live and what is important to them. With the new trends in family dinners and the importance of bonding over meals, it is interesting to see how it plays out in an alternate life style.
According to Monsters and Critics, there is a definite negative reaction to this series in general and calls the episode "Polygamist Nonsense." But not everyone is negative, just last week the show was called heartwarming by RightThisMinute.
“My Five Wives” is definitely different than other reality shows as it shares the lifestyle of the Utah family and the decision to have so many wives (and children.)
