  • Alex Hatch By broadcasting this show, TLC shows a deep lack of both ethical sense and responsibility to the community. The practice of polygamy has routinely targeted young women who are often coerced into marriages to men much older than themselves. This is a problem that has been near impossible to combat in the US because of the severe brainwashing done to the women involved. Often, the women are told by their families that it is God's will for her to marry a man oftentimes twice her age, and that if she doesn't obey, she will burn in Hell. The women, often married at a very young age (as young as 12), are legally raped by their husbands, but the issue almost never goes to a court of law because these girls are told that it is the will of God. These marriages also tend to drain government money from welfare programs designed to help poor, single parents. The wives who are not legally married collect thousands of dollars in government assistance each year. The amount of assistance to these families is huge, owing to the usually giant families of polygamists caused by the pressure on the women to have as many children as possible. The practice of polygamy has proved to be extremely damaging to women, and for TLC to condone this behavior is simply disgusting.

  • Anonymous This show glorifies an immoral lifestyle. Anyone who claims to be a Christian or a Mormon & then lives like this is "a wolf in sheep's clothing," & TLC needs to cancel this show. This show is trash & doesn't deserve air time.
