‘Sister Wives’ Family Under Investigation For Bigamy, To The Surprise Of No One

Bigamy is a felony in Utah and Sister Wives is a show about bigamy. That makes Sister Wives a show about a felony — and the authorities are not pleased.

The gang of 13 (including a foursome of wives) are under investigation by the Lehi, Utah police for their untraditional familial ways. Bigamy is illegal in Utah, although it’s usually left alone – unless a cable network decides to foot the bill, of course. Brother Husband Kody Brown told PopEater: “We are disappointed in the announcement of an investigation, but when we decided to do this show, we knew there would be risks. But for the sake of our family, and most importantly, our kids, we felt it was a risk worth taking.”

Oh? For the sake of your family getting to appear on TLC you thought it was worth risking a third-degree felony charge? This proves that four heads are not necessarily better than one.

    I saw previews for this show & it didn’t sit well with me. I’m not one to tell someone how to live their life, but I don’t agree with this lifestyle at all.

    I think you are in error reporting that they are being investigated for bigamy. Bigamy is when you are married to more than one person at a time. They have admitted that Kody is only married to Meri. They are being investigated for polygamy.
    I really don’t see what the big deal is as long as all adults entered into the situation willingly and the children are happy and secure.
