Love multiplies! The new series Seeking Sister Wife premieres Sunday, January 14th at 10/9c on TLC.

You'll meet three plural families seeking, dating, or transitioning a new sister wife into their lives. Follow the emotional ups and downs as they begin the intimate process of introducing a new member into their family.

Get to know the families!

The Snowden Family

Ashley and Dimitri Snowden are an African-American family who live in Atlanta, Georgia with their two adorable children, ages two and four. To the naked eye, they are a typical family--the only difference is that they are on the hunt for a sister wife. Ashley is on her third and last pregnancy, but she and Dimitri want to continue expanding their family. Although the couple recently experienced the heartache of a plural relationship that went sour, they are ready to start looking again for a compatible and committed woman who wants to have children. The Snowdens do not subscribe to the Mormon faith, but they have a spiritual union and adhere to a moral code. They have purposefully abstained from a legal marriage under the eyes of the law in order to ensure equality with their future wife.

The Alldredge Family

Jeff, Vanessa, and Sharis Alldredge are a fundamentalist Mormon family. Jeff met Vanessa and Sharis within a year of each other, and spiritually married both. They have seven children combined, all under the age of seven, and they live together in one house where the women share the household duties. As polygamists, the Alldredges believe their family is never complete and they plan to expand their family as large as God sees fit. They are actively dating and in search of their third wife.

The Briney Family

Drew, April, Auralee, and Angela Briney learn that adding a new family member can cause a lot of turmoil in the plural lifestyle. After a two-week courtship, Drew Briney recently married his third wife Angela. Now he and his three wives--along with their 15 children--are all moving into the same house together. April is Drew's first and legal wife, and she has no qualms exercising control over the other wives. And although April and Auralee have known each other for years, they don't always see eye to eye. Angela--the newest wife--had trouble conceiving for 20 years, but is now pregnant just months after joining the family! While April and Auralee are excited to love Angela, they hardly know her. All three women are trying to establish their new normal, but it is a bumpy ride.
