Chief, can you look over my post #53 and let me know if I have this correctly or if I am explaining it right?
You did a good job explaining the difference between American and English systems over the accepted polygany of Kenya. Obama Sr’s first stepmother had no children which is a big no-no if you will. The second wife had two children with Obama Sr being one of those. Sarah, the third wife was a member of the family prior to Obama Sr’s birth and essentially raised him after his own mother deserted him. It goes into the concept of “sister wifes” as mentioned by the FLDS but Americans cannot relate to having multiple wifes, with many men thinking one mother in law is sometimes more than enough!(Sorry I tried to put a bit of levity into the explanation!)
