Dimitri also revealed what a typical morning was like in the Snowden household: he said he and Vanessa are up at 5:45 am to go to the gym. They come home, clean up and make breakfast while Ashley wakes the children. Ashley said they also try to give each other space for alone time and to work on their individual projects.
And when it comes to jealousy, both Ashley and Vanessa said it’s not an issue, and Dimitri said he constantly works to create a home environment where both women get lots of attention.
“I’ve always lived with the mantra that if I’m happy and whole, me sharing the happiness and wholeness doesn’t take away from me,” Ashley said.
“There’s nothing to be jealous of because I am getting it all, and so is she,” she said.
Dimitri said some advice for men who were considering having more than one wife – and it boiled down to telling the truth and being financially secure.
“My simple advice is that you’ve got to be honest,” Dimitri said. “You’ve got to be transparent. You’ve got to be clear, and own that honesty.”
He added: “Make sure you have the fiscal means or a plan or two or three to be able to support this type of life. This is is not the type of life to do without a plan or if you’re broke.”
