TLC reality television show 'Seeking Sister Wife', a show which focuses on plural marriage, is back in the headlines after Vanessa Cobbs revealed that she has separated from Dimitri and Ashley Snowden.

During the show's second season, we saw polygamists Ashley and Dimitri both court Vanessa, who was new to the lifestyle, before they all decided to move in together and start a fresh new beginning in California.

Vanessa, who loved a good steak even gave up meat and went on the alkaline diet for the couple. After a month of living together, Vanessa became intimate with Dimitri and he proposed shortly after.

But according to Vanessa, their relationship has come to an end:

“After some deep soul searching, I have decided to part ways with the Snowdens,” she wrote. “I love Ashley, Dimitri, and the children so much, and will continue to do so always. However, my love and commitment to them overshadowed my love and commitment to myself. I was not being truly honest with myself until recently. I was ignoring my inner guidance, which was telling me that I do not belong with them in the capacity that they need me to.”

She continued, “Sometimes their long-established dynamic is not aligned with your own personal growth and path forward. Our love and life together was very real. I still believe that polygamy can be, and is, a beautiful thing.”

A crushing blow to the Snowdens who courted a woman during the first season, but ended things after Dimitri broke the rules and slept with her on their first date.
