After eagerly anticipating each episode of Big Love‘s premiere season, we found our interest wandering somewhere mid-way through the next. And we didn’t pop into the compound once during the entirety of season three. (Juniper Creek? Um, no thanks…)

With a brand new season set to roll out tonight on HBO, we figure we’ll stroll through–check on the sister-wives and see how things are playing out these days.

Here’s a handy refresher recap if you’d like to meet up!

>Slightly lost in the ongoing hub-bub over Kayne West’s outburst on the Music Video Awards, this week MTV True Life premiered an episode, “I’m Polyamorous,” that follows young polyamorous sorts in both NYC and the Carolinas.

Diana Adams, one of these sorts, writes of the experience:

The decision to share my polyamorous life with millions of people on MTV is scary because being non-monogamous is taboo. I don’t think polyamory is right for everyone, and I respect monogamous relationships, but I’ve found that having more than one partner is really right for me. I am telling my story so that young people will realize that there are many choices in relationships, love, and family style. Breaking the rules about what love should look like and sharing that with the world is risky, but being fearlessly open to the world also feels incredibly freeing!


Shortly available online, the episode will be airing on MTV throughout the month and posts from those featured in the show will appear on the blog for the series. Take a look, leave your comments, share with the world what’s worked for you–or not–in polyamory!
