SISTER WIVES Is Mykelti Brown rushing to wed because of a chaste courtship?


Last night’s double shot of Sister Wives on TLC continued to follow the story line of 19-year-old Mykelti Brown’s rush to marry her boyfriend Tony Padron.

Family patriarch Kody Brown, as well as Mykelti’s birth mom Christine Brown, live tweeted the episodes, sharing their own eagerness to hopefully at least postpone the wedding date.

During “Kody Takes Responsibility,” the super-busy dad rolled out with Bluetooth in ear to chat up Tony about the prospects of possibly delaying the wedding from at least August until December. “I’d love to have you wait until spring, but I feel like a good compromise would be December because I think Mykelti would make a grand December bride,” he explained.


Kody then discussed the topic of the pair’s chastity with Tony: “Listen man….You’ve waited 21 years to have sex. You can handle another six months, right?”

In an interview segment, Kody explained:

It’s like the big pink elephant in the room. Why would you get married so fast instead of taking time to do it? It’s because they’re having a chaste courtship. You know it’s not easy, you start to twitch.


Kody further clarified his position:

All the problems in marriage are because the people who are getting into a marriage aren’t making all the negotiations with each other before they get married, or, better yet, before they have sex.

Here are Kody’s live tweets about the topic:

Interestingly enough, Kody’s first wife Meri revealed during the episode that she and Kody only dated for two months before getting engaged!

In “He Pops the Question,” Tony sealed the will-you-marry-me deal with a romantic hike proposal. Kody, Christine, and Jenelle all weighed in with their support of Tony and their enjoyment over watching the important ask for the first time right along with all the show’s viewers:

While Tony did forget to pack a lunch, he did remember the ring and a special poem he wrote. Oh–and Mykelti said yes!
