Acceptance and dishes

I have reached a point on this journey of "Wife number 2" of acceptance.  InshaAllah.  I have sent my soon to be future co wife an email welcoming her to the family.  I have to heal my heart in order to be happy.  Why must I continue to bother myself with this day after day?  I am at a time in this process where I am giving in to the will of God.  That comes along with being a good Muslim right?

My husband is wonderful.  Has given me everything I can imagine.  I love him and want to live the life of a good Muslim family.

So, although I have many difficult roads ahead of me, I begin this journey with one thing on my mind.........Can her and I share doing the dishes if we now will share a husband??  LOL

Remember, this is not court, no need to judge.......  :)

Pandoras Box

Hello to all of you.  This is my first blog entry so I will keep it light.  I just would like to get the topic flowing of polygany.  Lets keep it civil and respect every ones viewpoints.  I myself struggle with the fact that my husband is looking for another but understand the need and the reasons/wisdom behind this decision.(some days) Even though he has not married yet, I do believe it is right around the corner.

I am currently battling my "American Way" attitude and fear that some days I may "Freak Out" on everyone around me!  LOL

I am wanting to hear stories.  The good, bad and the ugly.  I understand I may be opening up Pandora's Box here, hence the title, but I really would like some honest opinions.  I would especially like to hear from men and women already living the Islamic polygamous lifestyle and how it is working out for them.

Always remember, this is not a court of law.....No need to Judge.  :)
