Hondo Solomon, author of "Blood and Kindred" expounds on the structure of polygynous families in another spirited discussion about the possibility of allowing men in America to marry multiple wives. Other cultures and religious traditions are examined and he addresses historical commonalities with the practice of polygyny in various parts of the world.  How have American communities lived this lifestyle and protected the rights of women and children? What is the relationship between the women? How do families settle disputes? The author addresses listeners who may still feel distrust toward men who advocate this lifestyle.
