Not all polygamous families are created equal! After the success of TLC's hit reality TV series Sister Wives, the network is continuing to document the stories of families who choose to live a polygamous lifestyle with the premiere of its new series, Seeking Sister Wife. Viewers will get to follow three plural families as they go through the process of adding an additional wife into their families — and one of the families is the Snowdens.
Dimitri Snowden and his partner Ashley Kapri are an African-American couple based in Atlanta, GA where they live with their two children, plus one on the way. In a sneak peek from the upcoming season premiere of Seeking Sister Wife obtained by Hollywood Life, Dimitri opens up about the reason why he has chosen to have a plural family even though his family doesn't subscribe to the Mormon faith.
"I don't have a close family myself. My immediate family is all over the place, we're not very tight. We didn't really get to grow up together," Dimitri said in his confessional. "So I want a noisy house, babies everywhere — I just want an epically big family."
He said he started to learn more about polygamous lifestyles when he was around 24 years old, and his partner Ashley agreed that a plural marriage would be the best way for Dimitri to have the big family that he's always dreamed of.
"Part of the reason why having a sister wife is attractive to me is because I'm currently pregnant with my third and I think I'm at my capacity with three children," she explained in her confessional.
According to the couples' TLC bio, they have already attempted to find a sister wife for their family, but it turned out to be a heartbreaking experience for them since their plural relationship didn't end up working out for them, so now they're ready to try again.
Be sure to catch the season premiere of Seeking Sister Wife, airing Sundays at 10 p.m. on TLC.
