Sister Wives is a quality reality show, full of relationship drama, family drama … just all the drama, really.
And the vast, vast majority of that is because of the family’s beliefs: namely the belief that polygamy is the way to be.
Kody Brown has four wives — Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn — and he has children with each of those wives. He’s legally married to Robyn, but he calls the other three his “spiritual wives.”
And in Utah, where the family is originally from, that’s against the law.
That’s why all those crazy Browns packed up and moved to Las Vegas a few years ago. If they didn’t, they risked being arrested, simply because of the way they choose to live.
But this weekend, they went back to Utah. And they went for a fight.
See, bigamy has always been illegal, but there’s a bill in Utah that makes it illegal not only to have multiple legal wives, but to have multiple spiritual wives.
On one hand, it makes sense. Many women and children have been abused and mistreated in polygamist families.
But on the other hand, there are families like the Browns. They may be strange, but they’re all consenting adults who’ve made a choice to live a certain way, and should that really be a felony.
A local news station in Utah caught Kody at the march, and he was able to outline his issue with the bill.
