Although all Utah criminal bigamy charges have been dropped for the Sister Wives‘ Brown Family, it still is a third-degree felony in the state to just say you have more than one wife (as in, not filing the legal documents, but having “spiritual” marriages like the Browns have.) Because of that, the Browns are fighting back, and have filed a lawsuit against Utah in an attempt to get a “federal judge to overturn the state’s bigamy law as unconstitutional.”

The Brown Family has a reason to relax and celebrate this weekend! Thursday a Utah prosecutor wrote in court filings that criminal charges would not be pursued against Kody Brown and his four wives Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn.
The Brown family from TLC’s Sister Wives recently published a very honest and open book called Becoming Sister Wives about the complicated history of their lives in a plural marriage. There’s a lot of great stuff in there, but one thing that’s making a lot of headlines is Janelle’s revaluation that in the eighth year of her marriage she moved away from the family for several years.
The Brown Family of TLC’s Sister Wives fame have 22 mouths to feed (17 kids, 4 wives, and one dad/husband,) and have had to move from their home in Utah to four separate residences in Las Vegas, Nevada because of a threat that their family may be broken up due to state laws. First wife Meri lost her job after they went public with their life, Robyn left her job to join the family, and the main breadwinners Jenelle and Kody had to leave their jobs behind when they moved. Their move and living expenses afterwards came mostly from what supposed to be their retirement savings, and many of the kids are nearing college age. Soo, how does this huge family support themselves?
A group of concerned elementary school parents wants what happens in Vegas to stay in Vegas and they’re making noise over TLC’s polygamy-themed reality show Sister Wives invading their Valentine’s Day dance.
Congratulations to the Brown family of TLC’s Sister Wives as they have welcomed their 17th child into the world in the form of adorable little baby Solomon.
hey all attested to Kody’s love for curvy women, but at this point weight loss for the wives is really about health concerns. Janelle, the brightest and most savvy of the bunch, has watched her weight creep up slowly over the years (especially during her six pregnancies) and was mortified by having to reveal her weight on national television. It was heartbreaking to watch her almost forced into doing so, and facing the words of the trainer who laid out the emotional and mortal consequences of remaining at a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 44 (She weighed in at 271.) The ideal BMI range is 18-25, with over 30 being obese.
The Brown family of TLC’s Sister Wives made an appearance on Anderson Cooper’s new talk show ANDERSON and were candid and entertaining as usual. Kody and three of his wives, Meri, Jenelle, and Christine sat with Cooper to discuss their lifestyle and a couple of interesting tidbits surfaced during the interview.
Apparently Sister Wives’ patriarch Kody Brown is open to his wives having multiple husbands, as long as it’s Brad Pitt.
On September 25th TLC’s popular polygamy themed reality show Sister Wives is returning for a 3rd season. During last season’s run the family left Utah in light of possibly facing prosecution based on state laws involving bigamy and cohabitation.
