It appears as though the first wife from TLC’s popular polygamist reality series Sister Wives is now a first ex-wife as legal documents reveal that show patriarch Kody Brown divorced Meri Brown in September of 2014. Less than three months later, Kody then officially married his fourth wife, Robyn Brown!

The Brown family featured on TLC’s Sister Wives reality series made history last December when their lawsuit claiming Utah’s laws prohibiting polygamy were unconstitutional went before U.S. District Court Judge Clarke Waddoups and he ruled in the Browns’ favor, which essentially legalized cohabitation in the state of Utah. In addition, Judge Waddoups ruled last month “that state officials (notably prosecutor Jeffrey R. Buhman) violated the constitutional rights of the Brown family in years of criminal investigation and public accusations,” as summarized by Brown family attorney Jonathan Turley.
Tonight’s season finale of Sister Wives (don’t worry, there’s a “reunion” episode next week,) involved a slideshow about the family and ended with Robyn Brown about to make a special announcement. Earlier there was speculation among the kids about whether or not Robyn was pregnant again. Is that her big secret?
After the Brown family of TLC’s Sister Wives found fame by exposing their taboo lifestyle on television, it opened up a possibility in the minds of Americans that polygamist families can be very modern and happy. Last year year the Darger family came out too, giving television interviews, and publishing a book about their family called Love Times Three.
