Dannielle and Garrick, a married couple from Buena Vista, Colorado, have been together for more than 15 years. Eleven of those years were monogamous, so their decision to try a plural lifestyle — practicing polygamy and courting potential sister wives — is fairly recent.

“We define polygamy as a man having more than one wife and the wives, we consider to be close, like sisters,” Garrick said during season 4 in 2022. “Polygamy is something we felt God really led us to.
