I’m very aware that these things have been raised among other threads, but I believe it deserves one of its own. (Oh dear, I hope there isn’t one).
How do we find (caveats apply) either a sister wife or a family to join or even start a plural family. My preamble doesn’t address all these issues but I’m sure you will over time.
