In the third episode of Three Wives, One Husband Melinda and Anazella’s husband Jim recently passed away after a long battle with cancer. His dying wish was for his brother Abel to marry his two widows and bring up his seven children. Abel wants to abide by Jim’s wish and obey God’s will, but he has three wives already. The prospect of further upheaval and even less time with their husband is daunting for Abel’s wives and they’re yet to come to terms with the promises he’s made.
Melinda and Anazella are also struggling with the decision. As sister wives they earned the nickname ‘the two-headed dragon’ and their marriage was marred by jealousy and fighting. Although Jim’s death has united them in grief, they must now choose whether to stay together as a family and risk living through the heartache of plural marriage again, or going their own way.
