On Saturday’s Say Yes to the Dress, Kleinfeld bridal salon welcomes its a first polygamous throuple: Jennifer, her fiancé Peter and Peter’s wife Ellen.

In an exclusive clip from the episode, Jennifer explains to consultant Debbie Asprea how she became ready to say “I do” to a man who’d already walked down the aisle.

After 10 years of marriage, “Ellen had some serious health issues which put a strain on their marriage,” Jennifer says.

Ellen reveals that a bout with Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder after the birth of her daughter left her repulsed by touch, which she felt was “unfair” to Peter.

He shares, “I never wanted to embarrass Ellen. and I never wanted people that don’t understand all of the details of our life, to know that I was lonely.”

Peter continues, “This isn’t really religious-based. We were all Catholic, [this is] clearly pretty far from the religion in which we were raised.”

Says Ellen, “This was something that I kind of pushed. I wanted to be sure that he was okay.”
