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?
The polygamist Sister Wives’ Brown family seem accepting and laid back, but they do have strong religious beliefs (click here to learn more about that.) With so many kids in the teenage age range, dating is kind of a big issue. The Duggar family is another family with focused religious beliefs and lots of teens, and their rules for dating (or, as they call it, courtship) are pretty strict. Hand-holding is prohibited until engagement, and full on-kissing and full frontal hugs are to be avoided at all costs until marriage. Of course, the Duggars make it clear that they are letting the children decide to make these choices for themselves.
Polygamist Kody Brown and his family, stars of TLC’s Sister Wives reality series, filed a lawsuit in 2011 challenging the state of Utah’s anti-polygamy laws and on Friday U.S. District Court judge Clarke Waddoups issued his ruling on the case, essentially tossing out most of the laws declaring them to be unconstitutional.
It has been a rough few months for the Brown family from the TLC reality series Sister Wives as the show’s patriarch Kody Brown lost his brother Curtis Brown in a motorcycle accident back in June and earlier this week Kody’s father, Winn Brown, passed away at his home in Lovell, Wyoming the age of 78.
