Yes, I watched it because I too was curious.
I stopped. Had to ask myself how I would feel. I cannot imagine tolerating my husband having sex with me and then being intimate with three other women whom I live with and must embrace as “sisters”.
There have been shows regarding Mormons and those wives who have left because they would not be one of many wives. The book, THE 18th WIFE, is about the 18 wife of Bringham Young. There’s also a TV movie by the same name.
Apparently, Young was the one to introduced polygomy to the Mormons. One wife came back at him stating she wanted more than one husband. The men said no. Big surprise. So this idea wasn’t an easy sell among the women.
Number 18 married because he threatened to financially ruin her brother if she didn’t. She suspected she was actually his 50th wife. But he assured her that there were more but some he wed just to make sure they got into heaven. Others were dismissed because they couldn’t produce kids and were off on their own. He no longer counted them among his wives.
Young cut off #18 after she gave him a son. He kept cutting her allowance until he cut her off advising her to plant a garden for food and to take in boarders. One boarder was a “Gentile” lawyer who advised her to get a divorce. They had to get out of town when Young’s supporters showed up. She divorced, and supported herself by giving talks on Mormonism. She disappeared in 1902. Hmmmm.
