My Five Wives
- 2 Seasons
My Five Wives is a television show on TLC that chronicles the life of Brady Williams and his five wives in Salt Lake City, Utah. The show follows Williams, 42, and his career as a project manager while he juggles raising 24 children in his polygamist family. Initially, the family was committed to Mormonism, but slowly left the lifestyle in the mid-2000s and now incorporates Buddhist beliefs into their home. In the first episode of My Five Wives, each wife discusses her personal struggle as one of the wives and how their family has changed with the addition of each wife. The main struggle in the episode shows the family celebrating Brady's birthday, but also having to celebrate one of the wives' birthday on the same day. Each wife admits to feeling jealous and envious that they aren't able to share the special day with their husband. The series also covers financial issues that the Williams family constantly struggle with, as well as one wife's issue with her weight. Another wife is shown to wanting to adopt a child as the other wives protest to the cost and strain that it could put on their family.
