I'm going to let you all in on a little secret about me... I watch Sister Wives and I like it. I starting watching it last year. I was flipping through the channels and landed on Sister Wives and started watching it with a preconceived notion about what it was going to be like...and I was wrong.
I did exactly what I don't like others doing, I had made up my mind that these women were brain washed and that their husband was some sort of abusive control freak.
I'm a pretty open person, I don't have a problem with anyone's lifestyle as long as everyone involved wants to be there participating. That includes gay, lesbian, D/s, vegans, vegetarians, polygamist, transgender, furries, S&M, BDSM, swingers, open relationships, and everything in between.
I think I had a preconceived notion of what a plural marriage was because of the bad things we see on tv about the occult like sect of LDS Mormons that live in Utah and now here in Las Vegas. I've seen the women from those occult like sects in Walmart a few times in the past. They all dress alike, have their hair done the same and don't talk to anyone even to say, hello.
After watching the Sister Wives tv show I saw that this family isn't at all like what we've seen in the news. This taught me a lesson...don't go into a situation thinking that you already have all the answers or with preconceived notions of what things are going to be like and that's true of all sorts of life situations.
