how they met...

In early 2009 Ashley worked as a K-8 teacher in center city Indianapolis. During the school year, Ashley’s computer seemed to always be “broken”.  Coincidently, Dimitri owned a technology firm that provided IT services to Ashley’s school. 

Like a scene from a predictable love story, the frequent support tickets for Ashley’s “broken” computer led the pair to become closer.

Before getting too serious, Dimitri shared his personal vision and version of a family unit – polygamy.  Tri-lingual, well traveled and equipped with a Masters Degree in Anthropology, Ashley wasn’t surprised and further supported the vision.

From that moment on Ashley and Dimitri dedicated themselves to each other, rising to excellence and actualizing the shared vision for a plural family. 

Ashley and Dimitri currently have 3 children and live in Los Angeles, California.


In 2017 TLC reached out to Ashley and Dimitri about sharing their unique vision and version of family with the world.

After much consideration, the pair decided it could be an opportunity to share their journey in living a polygamous way of life and how it may be different or similar to more familiar polygamous references (IE Mormonism, Muslim etc)
