Kim has publicly talked about their open relationship. "We've always been an equal-partner relationship. Everything is 50/50. What I can do, he can do, so as I date, Dustin dates as well," she explained.

Dustin even jumped into the conversation and said that this new era of their relationship is a good thing. "I've gotten a chance to love myself on a deeper level and to appreciate who I am and the courage that I have," he said. "I mean, once you do something like this, not a whole lot scares you anymore".

While Kenya is the one who has welcomed an additional husband, Tiger, into their lives, her first husband Carl was the first to be interested in the idea of opening their marriage. "My husband wanted several wives," she said. "He actually talked to me about this before we got married, and I laughed, like, ‘Whatever!’ I was open to the idea, but if he has the privilege, I would absolutely want the same privilege, which is just fair."

Tiger lives in the house with Kenya, Carl, and their three children. Kenya has shared what it was like to incorporate Tiger into their family and tell their kids. "They had questions — they wondered how would it work, would they have another father? Those types of logistical questions. But overall, there was excitement, because they have a community to raise them, instead of two very tired parents," she said.

In fact, the couple is even considering to keep expanding on their marriage. “What is too many?" Kenya asked. "We like community. We don’t believe that the nuclear family is sustainable, and we think community is more sustainable than a nuclear family.”

New episodes of the series premiere on TLC every Sunday and are available to watch every Monday on Discovery+. Seeking Brother Husband has not yet been renewed for a Season 2.
