Sister Wives: Why Polygamy Works For Us

TLC is gearing up for its second season of "Sister Wives" featuring Kody Brown and his four wives: Meri, Janelle, Christine and Robyn. Polygamy is seeing a surge of attention from the negative story about Warren Jeffs to the more sympathetic HBO series "Big Love" and the book release "Love Times Three."

According to the Brown family it is a matter of choice:

"We have chosen our life.. It's not something we are asking everybody else to live, this is not what I would say is right for everybody, it's just right for our family and that is why we've chosen it."
