Sister Wives follows the daily life of a family (notice this is the same boring recurring theme for TLC) composed of four wives, countless children we can only help but feel sorry for, and the husband/father, Kody, who you may think is privileged for having so many wives, but in reality would be lucky to even have his warts infested penis touched by one of his either fat or ugly wives.
Any courageous viewer is tortured with many antagonizing questions like: why would any woman submit herself and her children to such a degrading lifestyle? (to which the answer may vary: 1 the woman is too lazy to work and support herself and her kids and buys a quick ticket to financial support from Kody, 2 the woman just wants to be famous and on one of the worst TV shows since ever, or 3 yes, there ARE some retarded women that support polygamy), how are the children going to turn out? (to which there is only one answer: just as fucked up as their parents), and how can a family more populous than China afford a semi-mansion and more food than Half-Ton Dad and Half-Ton Mom (you guessed it - more TLC failures) are capable of eating? (to which the answer no one knows but to which everyone hopes Uncle Sam will force them into bankruptcy and end the viewers' pain.)
There is no romantic involvement with a sister-wife or her spouse, however she is beloved by the whole family.
