‘Sister Wives’: Janelle Brown Didn’t Invent Polygamy – Harsh Reminder?

Sister Wives star Janelle Brown recently slammed a couple from another TLC show and now she’s getting the backlash. It seems a couple from Seeking Sister Wife decided to be intimate before their commitment ceremony. This didn’t sit right with Janelle. Apparently, their intentions came out during a commercial for the show and Janelle Brown must have seen it.

Sister Wives: Janelle Brown Pushes Her Rules of Polygamy?

It wasn’t all that long ago when Kody Brown and his four wives felt ostracized by society. This is the reason they decided to do the Sister Wives reality show in the first place. Kody, Meri, Christine, Robyn, and Janelle Brown wanted to show how their family wasn’t much different than other families. It is just that they have four wives instead of one.

Kody Brown and SW Family Wanted to Stop Polygamy Bashing

On Sister Wives, they wanted to dispell any taboo regarding their lifestyle. But most of all they asked people to live and let live. They were tired of keeping their lifestyle a secret. But they had no choice, people attacked them for how they live their lives.

It looks like Kody Brown and his Sister Wives family definitely made a difference. While folks might not understand the plural marriage of the Browns, some people find them a likable family.

Intimacy Before Commitment a No-No?

Janelle hopped on Twitter to offer a “quick comment” about the Seeking Sister Wife show. She said it’s a bad idea to have intimacy before commitment. She even said that in their culture it’s prohibited. “You are dating a family, not a man.”

Janelle Brown and her Sister Wives live a polygamous lifestyle under the umbrella of religion. But not all polygamous families do this for religious reasons. One of the Seeking Sister Wife husbands simply said he wants “more love”.

Live in Glass House and Throw Stones?

Does Janelle Brown need a reminder of how her Sister Wives group asked for more understanding of their lifestyle? As now it seems she’s not willing to do the same for another polygamous family.

Sister Wives followers on social media commented how her family may do this for religious reasons but other families may not. Since the start of the show, people warmed up to Kody Brown and his SW brood. It’s all thanks to the TLC show. So why throw shade on another polygamous family?

To Each Their Own

Sure, SSW couples don’t follow the rules the Browns pride themselves on. On top of this, some viewers find the new SSW show a bit vile. But maybe it should be to each their own. The same type of message Janelle Brown and her Sister Wives wanted to send from the beginning of their show.

Surprisingly, the majority of the comments agreed with Janelle Brown. A number of folks agreed people should wait for marriage before intimacy. But the naysayers also made their point.

TLC might not take kindly to Janelle throwing shade on another TLC show. But she only made that one comment. So far the network hasn’t commented on Janelle’s light reprimand of the Seeking Sister Wife couple.
