Im gonna go ahead and speak for the male race for a minute.
For at least one second in every heterosexual man's life, the thought of having multiple wives not only makes sense but sounds awesome. None of us actually give the idea more thought than that because . . . well . . . its illegal; and just would never happen.
I spent the last 3 days with a lot of women.
The Group Skype with Gina's BF

A Giant Bachelorette group of women.
All sorts of women: We had old marrieds, young marrieds, young divorced, recently engaged, recently unengaged, and even recently unengaged that got re-engaged (thats Alex) "wink wink"
The thing I have come to learn about women is that they have many specific needs. And although they might choose to mask them around you in the beginning, eventually those needs will come busting out like an exploding Pompeii Volcano. At that point you have 2 choices. You may either deliver, or choose to run. RUN!!!!! RUN as fast as you can because all HELL is about to break loose. Dating Alex I have come to realize it is much more pleasant to just deliver on those needs. Hence the old marriage slogan "happy wife, happy life"
Well this weekend involved a group of old friends of the female species who haven't all been together in 3-4 years. When this happens its like the Power Rangers all getting together; combining their forces to create and exponentially greater forcefield of strength. When all the pieces of the puzzle are in place there is no stopping them and all outside forces are then ignored.
It was probably just as surprising to them as it was to me, how comfortable they were talking about the female genitalia, menstrual cycles; along with past, current, and future flings / relationships.
The reason for this particular Estrogen Fest of 2013 is actually very beautiful. The perfect wedding of Jenna Metra and Logan Bounds. #JandLwedding
My attempt to take and artsy picture of the Newport Temple
These two are honestly the reason Alex decided to give "us" a second chance. They paved the way for us and showed that even if you decide to call off an engagement, if you truly love someone, you can push through the trials and make it work. Life isn't about finding perfect compatibility so that you can plateau and coast through existence. Its for finding someone that really makes you better by stretching yourself to become more christlike.
These two looked twitter-patted and deeply in love the entire day, wrapped up and enjoying every bit of the moment while focusing on each others needs.
Meanwhile, The Girls of the bachelorette party were very focused on making sure I took the best pictures of them while guarding their purses and phones.
In the end Im sure I would be completely ignored and my wives would have a dance party every night, eventually forgetting I existed.
