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.
