What is a sister wife and what is the difference between that and a bi sexual relationship? What is the preference?

Depends on the culture from what I'm able to research

As I understand it a "sister wife" is someone who is only physically intimate with the male in the relationship. A "bi sexual" relationship is when the all partners are physically intimate with each other. So an example of a "sister wife" scenario would be me (husband) having a sexual relationship with my wives independently. One wife never with the other. A "bi sexual" scenario would be my wives having a sexual relationship with each other and not with me present. Otherwise that would be more like a threesome. I wonder if this helps.

A "sister wife" is a common term for two women in a polygynous relationship which the type of polygamy between one man and multiple wives. Typically in this relationship the wives are no bi-sexual and do not have sex with each other, just the man. Most faith based polygamist (Judeo/Christian) practice this form of polygamy.


If a man and two women are all in a marriage relationship where they all have sex together that would be considered group marriage which some consider a different form of polygamy.


Polyandry is polygamy where there is one woman and multiple husbands. It is very rare.

Wife Chris: I believe the term commonly used to describe a woman with multiple husbands is "Brother Husbands."

Don't overlook the permanent or at least long term implication of the terms "wife" or "husband." A bisexual relationship can be fleeting and casual. A sister wife is an integral part of the family.
