    Possives with plurals...

    Ok.

    We have the possesive for I - my, and the masc, fem and neuter.

    мой моя моё (cant put accents on)

    Now I read somewhere that the plural for this is мои - is this correct?

    If it is how would this work? Say for example I was wanting to put this.

    I am talking about my Wives. (I realise you normally have 1!!!)

    Я говарю о мои жены - Is this line correct? I am a little confused.

    No, because мои жены is nom case, but the preposition 'o' takes the prep case, in this case you'd need the prep pl:

    Я говорю о моих женах

    My wife - Моя жена (fem.)
    My wives - Мои жены (plu.)

    My son - Мой сын (masc.)
    My sons - Мои сыны (plu.)

    My window - Моё окно (neut.)
    My windows - Мои окна (plu.)

    In the plural there is no distinction between the genders.

    well, you can find "сыны" in particularly high-style speech ("Сыны Отчизны,...") but that's about it.

    Oh, this is good. When I screw up on my grammar they will just think that I am High Brow and sofisticated.!!!
