Long before "Sister Wives" hit screens, the Henrickson's brought the idea of polygamy to the masses in the show "Big Love." The show ran for five years with a brilliant cast.


The story focused on the tricky business of trying to juggle life with three wives. Modern polygamist Bill is faced with multiple problems outside his three suburban homes.

The show showcased the evolving nature of marriage at the time. Here is a look at where the cast of the show ended up after the show ended.
