Marcus’ wife, Taryn, revealed why they decided to add another woman to his family. He said, “Marcus and I have been together for about 11 or 12 years.” He revealed that he had begun to deceive her. Taryn said, “And Marcus was doing things that, you know, a married man probably shouldn’t do.”
She explained how surprised she was by Marcus’ deception. She said: “It was not an open relationship. It was not clear that I should have been able to go out and have other women.”
Marcus intervened: “I was not allowed to juggle between 5 and 10 women.” Taryn said, “I think Marcus took advantage of the fact that he was so understanding, relaxed, and calm.”
Eventually, Taryn had had enough of the deception and separated from him for about a year. “I got to the point where I needed to know if our relationship could go on. So I decided I was going to leave with our daughter,” she said.
Marcus started dating India
In Looking for a sister wife In the fourth season, Marcus revealed that when his wife, Taryn, separated from him, he met his current girlfriend, India. India was out with friends when she met Marcus. He said, “And then, yes, we’ve been inseparable ever since.”
Finally, Marcus and Taryn started talking again after a year of separation. She said: “We started having conversations to get married again. At the same time, I was engaged in India.”
How Marcus persuaded Taryn and India to accept a polygamous marriage
Marcus wanted to return his wife, but he wanted to maintain his new relationship with India. He said, “I said, wait a minute, I want to keep it, but I wasn’t willing to let go of India.”
Taryn revealed, “When I got back to Marcus ‘house, I said,’ He has to leave. But then I got to know India. I gave it like a month or two and now I know it and I like it. So when Marcus came up with the idea of polygamy. I felt like it made sense to us. “
He revealed that the best part of polygamy is his relationship with his sister-in-law, India. She said: “I also really like the fact that I can be in a relationship and love another person without it being like a relationship that threatens my marriage to you.”
As for India, it was initially hesitant to have a polygamous relationship. He said, “The idea of polygamy came to me. And at the time, I wasn’t even interested in trying out the lifestyle at the time.” She explained: “But he was persistent and I realized how much I loved him, so I decided to give it a try.”
However, it was not the easiest transition to combine her marriage to Taryn and her engagement to India in one home. India remembers that there were “growth pains,” but they eventually became one big happy family. India says: “Dynamics works for us. And I think people have to do what works for them, not necessarily what society says they should do for you. ”
