In Many ways, the Browns are like any other middle American family. They eat, play, andpraytogether, squabble and hug, striving to raise a happy family, well adjusted children while keeping their relationship loving and strong. The difference is, there are five adults in the openly polyamous Brown marriage - Kody and his four wives - who amoung them have seventeen children.
Since TLC first launched its popular reality program Sister Wives, the Browns have become one of the most famous families in the country. Now Kody, Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn reveal in their own words exactly how their relationship works - the love and faith that drew them together, the plusses and pitfalls of having sister wives, and the practical and emotional complications of a lifestyke viewed by many with distrust, prejudice, even fear.
With the candor and frankness that have drawn millions to their show, they talk about what makes their fascinating family work, addressing the topics that intrigue outsiders: How do the four relationships differ? What effect does a polygamous upbringing have on their children? What are the challenges - emotional, socila,or finanical- involoved in living this lifestyle? It is poosible for all four wives to fel special when sharing a husband - and what happens when jealousy arises? How has being on camera changed their lives? And what's it like to add a new life to the family - or to be a new wife?
“"My life is my family. I enjoy nothing more then being surroundeed by my wives and my children. I draw strength from them on a daily basis. I love the energy and unity that we exude as a group. We are wholesome and upright. We are devout and chaste. We are five consenting adults and seventeen happy children, all free to make our own choices in this world."”Kody
