As creepy as I find Kody Brown's hair to be, I think his Sister Wives are some pretty stand-up ladies. Now they are giving me even more of a reason to like them. The Brown family is helping women get out of polygamous relationships. Wait, what?
While Meri, Robyn, Janelle, and Christine love their polygamous lifestyle, they realize that some women are in it against their will. Meri recently ran a 5K to raise awareness for women who have been kicked out of or are trying to leave polygamous relationships like Warren Jeffs-led Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Look out Industry State, the Sister Wives are coming for you! Kody Brown, his hair, and his flock of wives are suing the state of Utah and the county where they used to live citing that its bigamy statute is unconstitutional. The law prohibits people from having more than one legitimate marriage license (which isn’t odd, as polygamy laws go), but it also makes it illegal for someone to hold out as having multiple spouses, even without marriage licenses. The statute also cites it’s illegal for unmarried couples who share a sexual relationship to cohabitate. Essentially the Sister Wives lawsuit could have ramifications on unwed couples who live together as well as homosexual couples who cohabitate.
Kody and his harem allege that they were forced to leave the state to avoid prosecution, but the state’s attorney explains that he won’t prosecute polygamous couples unless there are other charges waged against them. He reveals that people often equate polygamy with sexual abuse and underage girls being promised to older men, and that isn’t the case with the Browns.
Last night was the season finale of Sister Wives. There were college visits, big decisions, and a lot of running around the desert. When you think about it, that would be the best way to best capture the flowiness of Kody’s mane, which, let’s face it, is the true star of this show.
Logan is graduating from high school, and he has narrowed his college search down to Southern Utah University and UNLV. Mariah wants him to go to SUU, but Madison hopes he’ll stick close by as he’s her best friend. Logan reveals that while his dad, moms, and siblings want him to stick around to be close to the family, but Logan isn’t planning on sticking around till he’s forty to see his brothers and sisters grow up. Can you blame him? His mom Janelle thinks he’ll have more ties to his religion if he goes to SUU. Logan isn’t dead set on whether he’ll be a polygamist. He sounds JUST LIKE Kody when he talks.
Last night’s Sister Wives was more like solo wife, as the majority of the episode focuses on Kody and Meri.
Kody is taking Meri to Mexico…she’s beyond shocked. He’s been saying he wanted to take her back to Mexico for ages, but she never expected him to actually follow through. Kody’s having a hard time packing, given that his closet is spread out among several houses. Kody is hoping that trip will provide him with the opportunity to force Meri into a decision about having another baby with Robyn as the surrogate.
Both Meri and Kody admit that there is pressure when such a big trip is planned. Kody hopes the other wives aren’t expecting the same treatment, and Meri hates that she can’t act too excited for fear of hurting the other wives’ feelings. Robyn and Janelle think that Meri is long overdue for a big trip. Christine agrees and says she’s thinking about where she wants to go on her next Kody vacay…cut to Kody talking about the pressure of his wives’ expectations.
