The Daily WTF: Sister Wives Star Proves That According To The Law, Bigamy Is Only A Crime If You Also Commit Another Crime At The Same Time

Until recently, Kody Brown of TLC’s Sister Wives and his four wives, Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn, were being pursued by the Utah courts for violating bigamy laws…you know, since Kody is married to all four of them at the same time, and that’s supposedly illegal. However, the case against the Browns has apparently been dropped because the county now has the same policy toward bigamy that the state did: “they do not pursue criminal charges for consenting adult polygamists unless they’re committing other crimes.” Oh, okay, so it’s not a crime if both people are okay with it? I have some bones to pick with that statement. More »

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

'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.” More »
