We've received a number of questions as well as comments on my co-wife and my relationship with one another. Questions such as, "Are you really this friendly to each other? How do you get along so well? Has it always been this way?" or one of the most common, "Can co-wives really be drama-free?"
The simple answer to the last question is, yes. However, I would be misleading you if I didn't tell you that it takes qualities and skills one must be willing to possess to achieve it....

We all are aware that polygyny is another form of marriage and we also know that it comes with many challenges. Marriage isn’t easy even if the marriage is a monogamous one on the part of the husband. However, one of the reasons why some co-wives find polygyny particularly difficult is because wives can develop the feeling that they are living in the "shadow" of their co-wife.
In this video I discuss that very subject and offer some advice on how to not remain in the...

However, knowing what I know now, I've been able to improve my relationships, correct my mistakes and coach and assist others along the way. I decided to create a video series about the Polygyny...

In my experience, as a subsequent wife, when the subject of polygyny is brought up, the focus turns towards the feelings and emotions of the initial wife. I was informed that as an incoming wife, you know what to expect, you know what you "signed up for". However, in my own journey as a subsequent wife and as a polygyny coach who decided to finally shed some light on feelings and emotions of incoming wives, feelings that are not often heard, I've found out that wives in general,...
Countless times I have been asked, “What made you stay with your husband after he began to practice polygyny?” To be truthfully honest I had to ask myself that same question in the past. The beauty of asking some personal and difficult questions meant that I was willing to harvest my truth.

Many times the term "homewrecker" is used in regards to referring to a woman whom is a co-wife. This terminology is destructive and decisive. It not only is inaccurate but it is also demeaning and hurtful. The definition of a homewrecker is "a person who is blamed for the breakup of a marriage or family, especially due to having engaged in an affair with one member of a couple." In this video, I discuss the difference between a homewrecker and a co-wife.
