With the candor and frankness that have drawn millions to their show, they talk about what makes their fascinating family work, addressing the topics that intrigue outsiders: How do the four relationships differ? What effect does a polygamous upbringing have on their children? What are the challengesemotional, social, or financialinvolved in living this lifestyle? Is it possible for all four sister wives to feel special when sharing a husbandand what happens when jealousy arises? How has being on camera changed their lives?
