In 2011, the Sister Wives Blog started out as a place to talk about the TLC reality show "Sister Wives", Kody Brown and his wives Christine, Robyn, Meri and Janelle. Today we not only discuss the show, we discuss Polygamy in our society, and the public perceptions of the Mormon Religion. We discuss "Polygamy USA" and will be covering "My 5 Wives."
This blog is geared towards the adult reader, so please, no one under the age of 18 years. Thank you!
"Randy Maudsley, Jim Harmston, and the Kingston Group"
Let me precede this: the two groups you will see, Harmston and the Kingston groups, are NOT affiliated with the Browns – they are in the Allred Group.
I am in the kindergarten stage of learning about all these different groups. So those of you that know far more than me, please pipe in and teach us.
I laughed as I watched the beginning of this video. Roundy Randy, looking so proud of his harem, smiling from ear to fat hairy ear. And they were lookers, no? Randy Maudsley, his wife of 20+ years, Sam, their son Josh, and the Supremes of the group: Gladdel, Angel, and Patty Cake. If Gladdel left 11 children to be with this bear, they must be better off! Her decision making processes must have gotten lost in childbirth.
My favorite part is when Randy says there are women out in the community so suppressed wishing they could have the “freedom” that his ladies do. Yeah. I’d want freedom, too, from him, Patty Cake and Angel Melt can have him all they want! Gladdel, she looks like she’s has been rode around the block. Now poor Sam, the wife, looks nice, and must be miserable. Randy is an apostle of the TLC Harmston group. Josh later left the Harmston group, and sadly committed suicide, his mother quoted as saying, “he didn’t know what to believe”. How tragic.
This is my first real lesson on the Harmston and the Kingston groups, and it’s not pretty. You will just have to watch. But to know that your Mom and Dad are ½ siblings, and they make you marry your uncle, well that pretty well leads into what all Friend of Flora and k.Dee have discussed about the babies. How tragic. The beating of the 16 yr old Mary Etta Kingston blew the lid off of the Kingston’s little secrets. Which made me ponder, you cannot marry your 1/2 sibling in the US legally, so much goes on with this F.M. groups that are secrets it is really unfair the states keep allowing the polygamists to live, as "long as there's peace". Well, have siblings as parents, even if peaceful, is going to bring on all kinds of genetic disorders. (Hence, discussions from FOF and k.Dee of the outcomes). If we are not allowed to do that to our children, why are they?
Beating Mary Etta took at 16 for leaving her marriage to her uncle, from her father.
