Because viewers can't get enough of polygamous families, TLC is giving them exactly what they want with their newest show! The network is set to premiere a new reality TV series titled Three Wives, One Husband which will continue to shed light onto how families navigate polygamous lifestyles — but this will be very different than the other polygamy shows that are currently on the air, Sister Wives and Seeking Sister Wife.
Like Seeking Sister Wife, Three Wives, One Husband will document multiple families — unlike Sister Wives, which only follows the Brown family — who all live in the same area, Rockland Ranch, UT. Rockland Ranch is often referred to as just The Rock, and it is a very unique community.
"Way out in the Utah desert is a community called Rockland Ranch where 14 families have blasted their homes into an enormous sandstone rock," the narrator said in a first-look of the upcoming series. "That’s not the only unusual thing about this community. Half the men here have more than one wife."
"They’re fundamentalist Mormons [and] until now, they haven’t wanted to draw attention to their polygamist lifestyle," the narrator continued. "But the families at The Rock are tired of living in the shadows and have allowed us to film with them for a year. They hope once you get to know them, their way of life won’t seem so strange after all."
One of the families that participated in the series is the Foster family, led by patriarch Enoch Foster. Enoch is married to Catrina and Lillian and Lillian is pregnant with Enoch's 17th child, according to TLC. But two wives and 17 children are not enough for Enoch, and he wants a thrid wife — 25-year-old Lydia. The Enochs are hoping that she will agree to join their family.
Another family is the Morrisons, which consist of patriarch Abel, his three wives, and their 11 children. But Abel's newest wife Marina is still having a hard time adjusting to their family dynamic and she will struggle with issues of jealousy. Three Wives, One Husband is set to premiere on Sunday, March 11 on TLC.
