Author Hondo Solomon, who has researched the cultural practice of polygyny (men marrying multiple wives) talks about his upcoming book "Blood and Kindred" in which he examines common aspects of this lifestyle as practiced in communities around the world.  Do American men really understand the position and responsibility of a husband with several wives? What is the relationship between the women? Do all women live together or are they in separate homes? How does this differ from a married man having several girlfriends on the side? Listeners express opinions in this spirited discussion about one of the most controversial issues of our time.
