On Seeking Sister Wife, the Winders have quickly earned the title of the most genuine plural family. Unlike the other four couples, they are following God. When it came to pursuing a third wife, Colton was nervous about the timing. However, he put his hesitation aside and let it rest within his faith. He is also not looking to be intimate or even have any privacy with a potential sister wife without a commitment. Now, the family is reiterating their secret to polygamist success.
The Winders Seeking Sister Wife History
Viewers met the family in Season 2 of the series. Colton and Tami had been married to Sophie for a year but had yet to reveal they were a plural family. Tami and Colton had a daughter, Sadie and the wives did not live together. Sophie lived on her own and they would share their husband. Still, they were actively seeking a sister wife. They believed they had found someone yet it fell through. Fans felt Colton was very dry and bland at the time.
By Season 3, Sophie was pregnant with her first child and a lot of changes had been made. Everyone had moved in together and were making it work under one roof. Tami was doing her best to be supportive of Sophie’s pregnancy but it was not easy. She was struggling with fertility issues and has consistent miscarriages. Luckily, the family had met Kimberley from North Carolina who seemed to be a great sister wife fit.
The wives invited her to come to visit Utah prior to Sophie giving birth and she accepted. Sadly, COVID hit and it derailed everything. Once Sophie gave birth and everything began to slow down, they asked Colton about bringing Kimberley out again. He was hesitant because he felt they had a lot on their plates. Yet, he felt if it was God’s will, it would be. She showed up in the last episode. So, what makes this family work and seemingly functional?
The Secret to The Winders Success
Though they discussed it two years ago on their blog, the family decided to address it against on their Instagram page. The secret to their family’s success. They have a blog where they detail bits and pieces of their life, including the history of polygamy. Tami is also not shy about her fertility struggles on the blog.
