The household whom helped motivate the hit HBO series Big like has written a tell-all of types: a unique guide called like Times Three: Our real tale of A polygamous wedding.

Inside it, Joe, Alina, Vicki and Valerie Darger tell their tale of plural wedding, parenting 23 kids and surviving in a community where view that is many with scorn. The Dargers describe themselves as separate, fundamentalist Mormons. They are maybe not people of any arranged faith that is polygamous like Warren Jeffs’ FLDS church, and they’re maybe not welcome into the Mormon church, which officially renounced polygamy in 1890 and asian brides will not tolerate it now.

Joe and Alina Darger join NPR’s Neal Conan to share with you the options they will have made, and exactly how they make do in a society for which polygamy is unlawful.
