See how much they care about those 13 kids they've got. Whose to take care of them if you're all in prison?!

As many of you are probably well aware, polygamy is illegal in the United States and bigamy isn't well received either, even in Utah, where the stars of the new TLC show Sister Wives reside. As we reported this morning, The Brown Family are under investigation for their untraditional lifestyle.

When reached for comment, the family admitted they were "disappointed in the announcement of an investigation", but that they realized what they were in for when they signed up for the the show. They say that the show is worth it:

"For the sake of our family, and most importantly, our kids, we felt it was a risk worth taking."

We'll see about that!

  1. 1

    The 13 kids would be better off in other homes anyway. This home teaches that the man can OWN multiple women. SO WRONG!!!



  2. 2

    Whose? Really?



  3. 3

    "Who's to take care of them", not "whose", genius!



  4. 4

    these people are not normal.



  5. 5

    Why do people care so much about what they are doing? Really, an investigation? Because it's so worth investigating a guy with 4 wives? If they want to live that lifestyle, let them. Typical trailer trash kind of thing, but what ever. Why do people waste time and energy ruining other people's happiness. Clearly, although totally crazy, these people are happy. Let them live their lives!



  6. 6

    HOW IS WHAT THEY DO ANY DIFFERENT FROM A GUY HAVING 4 EX WIVES? UNLESS HES LEGALLY MARRIED TO ALL OF THEM AT THE SAME TIME WHICH HE IS NOT, THE AUTHORITIES CANT DO ANYTHING TO THEM



  7. 7

    Disgusting vile creatures



  8. 8

    their risk is looking like a bunch of fucken dumbasses not an investigation…………



  9. 9

    Who in the world says this is untraditional? it may not be our life style or work for us, but its a religion none the less that we've all heard about. They made the choice to be on tv but why investigate them simply because you dont agree with their lifestyle? Its their life, its their religion, why make things difficult for them?



  10. 10

    I wonder if these stupid mormon bitches get any lesbian action from each other? And if they do… do they lie about it to other stupid mormon bitches?
    I mean, I'm guessing they probably do pet each other's kitties. Hell, there's only so much of that tired old dude to go around.



  11. 11

    THEY SHOULD BE LEFT ALONE. THEY ARENT HURTING ANYONE AND IT ISNT AS IF THEY ARE DOING ANYTHING IMMORAL, LIKE HOMOSEXUALITY



  12. 12

    ISNT THAT TWISTED–IN AMERICA SOME STATES HAVE GAY MARRIAGE BUT A TRADITIONAL POLYGAMIST MARRIAGE IS NOT LEGAL?



  13. 13

    They're just doing this to make a scene, POLYGAMY isn't illegal in the US, BIGOTRY is. If he is only legally married to 1 of them, technically there is no crime. People have tried to say it is, but no one has been arrested or 'investigated' in the United States for polygamy since 1953. Also, the State of Utah has said numerous times they will never try or investigate someone for Polygamy. So, basically this is all BS to get people interested in the show.



  14. 14

    Re: Leonard McNair – I completely agree.



  15. 15

    I don't see anything wrong with him having 4 wives. It's their religion. So be it. Let them live their lives. Yes, they went on National tv, which is a stupid move, and it's illegal in the states, but leave them alone. Jeez.



  16. 16

    These women make me want to puke. They don't have enough respect for themselves or self esteen to realize they deserve their very own husband. Pathetic.

    I feel sorry for everyone of the brainwashed morons' children, but I don't feel sorry for them.



  17. 17

    Consented adults have the right to live their lives the way they want. If you support gay marriage and condemn these people, you're a hypocrite and a bigot. Plain and simple.



  18. 18

    You are judging these people for their lifestyle and yet you don't want to be judged for your life. The marriage part is illegal but he could just live with them and produce that many children and it would be legal. They don't seem to be on the government welfare role. I feel that their level of commitment is commendable. He is being a father to all of the kids. We all know so many men that aren't in their childrens lives.



  19. 19

    If there all consenting adults why prosecute them?? Kinda like your arguments about gay right's Huh MARIO ?



  20. 20

    While I don't necessarily agree with their lifestyle, that is their business not mine. As long as they are not legally married and they are a cosenting adults who choose this lifestyle and it wasn't forced upon them that's all that matters. How is it any different than a couple who swings or a husband who cheats and keeps a mistress? At least there is no deception to anyone.



  21. 21

    Technically, hes only genuinely married to one. He only had "commitment ceremonies" with the other 3.



  22. 22

    It is just like gay marriage! Let people make their own decisions in life and stop letting the government decide for them!



  23. 23

    As down through time, if you want to change a wrong, even if it is a law, someone must have the courage to take a stand, it was once illegal for women to vote, illegal for blacks to vote, everyone is on the bandwagon for gay rights, why persecute this? These are all consenting adults in an long term relationship. They OBVIOUSLY are happy and content and their children seem well cared for. Why do we glamourize Hugh Hefner and his THREE "girlfriends" living with him, make a hit show out of it plus a spin off (Kendra) yet bash someone because they are tired of being afraid on not living who they truley believe they are. Living in fear cannot be a fun time, look at what it does to gay teenagers. I say if your of age, it is not the governments business who you love or who you marry. Double standards need to stop and antiquated laws need to be changed.

    WOW“““““ This dude really knows how ““` to work it!!
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    4 females are ALL OK with sharing him with each other? humm. Wonder if the ladies have a little fun with one another when he's in bed with another wifey each night. Wonder if they use condoms?? It's like ““ ewwwwwwwwww. I would hate sloppy seconds!! But ““““ that's just me!! :) My guess is ““` He makes great $$$$ and is a real good lay?? and maybe these ladies like being “` a p/t wifey?? and or “““ Do they get to get some cock“from another dude,,,, on the side?? JUST WOW!!

    How can people compare polygamy to gay marriage? Gay marriage is just like hetero marriage. Polygamy is a man with multiple wives (e.g., slaves). AND YOU NEVER SEE A WOMAN WITH MULTIPLE HUSBANDS BTW. This way of thinking is sick, and it really tramples over women's rights. The dynamic of their relationship is not healthy. Those women are doormats, and they're teaching their children to not value themselves.



  26. 26

    Re: Pacific Ocean Gal – THEY might feel bad for YOU because you do not understand The Principle and are stuck having ONE husband that will clearly not get you into the Celestial Kingdom. Just because you believe something, doesn't mean someone else can't believe something different. It's not about having self-respect, I'm sure these women feel VERY honored to have the husband and sister-wives that they do.



  27. 27

    This family made the choice to be in this type of relationship & they're happy so where does everyone get off telling them that isn't ok? Why does everyone feel so compelled to tell others what's the right & wrong way to live? Let everyone marry whoever they wants, who cares if they are the same gender or if the want to be a part of a family like this one! This guy isn't living mulple different lives hiding his wives from one another, they aren't putting anyone in danger, other than a law that clearly violates a person't right to live freely as they choose, they aren't doing anything wrong. I live what is considered to be a "normal" life. I date the opposite sex, one person at a time, but I have absolutely had it with everyone thinking they are some kind of god passing judgement on others. People die every day because they don't have enought to eat or they can't or don't have access to modern medicines while others spend more on a one day shopping spree than most of us will earn in our lifetimes. Children & animals who did not ask to be born are neglected & abused everyday. These are serious issues, why are we worried about how these happy, healthy people who are self sufficent are living when it isn't hurting anyone? Its sad, disappointing & the JUDGERS of the world should be ashamed of their selves.



  28. 28

    Leave them alone. They seem to be raising some productive members of society, unlike the rest of the reality tv families. (minus the duggars of course)



  29. 29

    So let us understand this, a loving and caring family where a man has 4 wives and children that they care for and love and wish to show this example to all is questioned by the almighty hypocrite Perez as being questionable and somewhat wrong…but he espouses the gay life style as the second coming and defames everything and everyone who questions that….hmmm sounds like a double standard from the person who loves placing a heart on some dudes johnson….what an ultra maroon

    Re: jerkstore

    How dare you group gays with this as*hole. You are sick!!!!



  31. 31

    I'm sure he would be cool with one of his wives bringing home a couple more husbands. Fair is fair.



  32. 32

    uh, perez shouldn't you be defending them ? After all, separate is not equal in matters of love and sex, right ?



  33. 33

    This is Classic. I always knew there would be something illegal behind a title like "Sisters Wives!" There is going to be a special on this tonight on a show called "Issues" (headline news channel?). They are supposed to be giving new information on this. So creepy!



  34. 34

    These women are idiots and that guy is a real fucking asshole. It's sickening.



  35. 35

    Um they aren't Mormon… polygamy is against the LDS religion. Nice try though



  36. 36

    If a man can marry a woman then he should also be able to marry his dog or any of his livestock. Fair is fair.



  37. 37

    Shouldn't it be the exact opposite? …that it's NOT worth the risk (of losing your children)
    Why should you "risk" possibly losing your children and possibly getting in legal trouble to do a t.v. show showcasing your lifestyle?



  38. 38

    Men sleep with multiple women all the time and they are not investigated… What’s really being questioned here? These women are in that relationship by their own free will. They are not being repressed, beaten, blackmailed or brainwashed as some women are in certain polygamist sects, such as many FLDS women. I don’t honestly see anything wrong with this situation… he is only legally married to one of these 'wives' and as long as they are financially and mentally able to provide for all of the children, raise them to be understanding and have a freedom to choose either a monogamist or polygamist lifestyle for their own futures then I see no problem here. It's when men become abusive or young females are forcefully married off to older men without their consent as part of a cult tradition that I have a problem with polygamist practices.



  39. 39

    TLC has sunk to another low by even promoting a show like this … Those women must be on some good drugs or alcohol.
    I couldn't believe it when I first saw it advertised as a new show - sick people & poor kids.



  40. 40

    Let me guess, 3 of the wives are on welfare and we pay for their "lifestyle"…



  41. 41

    They are idiots and irresponsible parents for going on TV and flaunting their illegal lifestyle. This isn't Big Love, people! It would be like real live hookers or drug dealers doing a show with all of their real-life info and expecting to get away with it! I know this whole polygamy thing is "hot" right now because of Big Love, but we have laws in our country for a reason…and their lifestyle isn't about preference - it is against the law. Felony and jail await.



  42. 42

    Re: Leonard McNair – Duh! This isn't a "lifestyle" this is against the law for good reason.



  43. 43

    SO,ITS WRONG TO HAVE PLURAL MARRIAGE BUT NOT GAY MARRIAGE?
    I'D SAY THAT MAKES YOU,PEREZ A H8TER…EAT YR WORDS FLABBY BOY..



  44. 44

    I understood that he was only legally married to his first wife. If that's the case, then leave them alone! If they haven't broken a man-made law then nothing they do is anyone's business.



  45. 45

    Re: LittleMissMeredith – You're an ignorant sack of shit.



  46. 46

    Their chosen lifestyle does not bother me at all. Who are they hurting? Investigation is a total waste of time. He's probably not legally married to more than one woman at a time or has another plan. Othewise they would not have agreed to be taped.



  47. 47

    I don't understand this quote "For the sake of our family, and most importantly, our kids, we felt it was a risk worth taking."

    My first guess as to what this means is this: The boatload of money they'll be paid makes the risk of jail worth it. Otherwise, what benefit to the children are they talking about?



  48. 48

    from what I have seen and read…. these people are all WILLINGLY in this situation. They are not forcing it on anybody. They are not collecting welfare. They take care of their kids. Who cares? I understand on the compounds where they force teens into marriage…. but these people are mainstream… know their choices. Who cares?



  49. 49

    perez, you're being a bigoted jerk. these are consenting adults; as long as there's no child abuse or forced/coerced partnerships, why do you give a shit? don't you want to be able to marry and be with whomever YOU want?



  50. 50

    what is it with this kind of pople do all big families wee the sam color. If a man can have many wives can a women have many husband since their polygamist?



  51. 51

    What I can't understand is why they say its ok with GOD?? I don't think its suppost to be like this? What this horney ass dude is doing is getting away with having sex with 4 women and the stupid women are ok with this bcuz they think its gods way??? I want to know if women can also have 4 husbands then too–??? I wanna see if its ok with the lord too? Iam sure it isn't ? hahaha—I know my ass wouldn't be ok with all these wifes and to share one man uuuuhhhh NO!!!



  52. 52

    Perez you fucking hypocrite - your all about gay rights and equality for all - this falls under that same umbrella - families of 2010 are different. This guy isn't marrying children underage, they are all consenting adults, he's only legally married to one of them, who gives a shit what he does in his own home? These women CHOSE to live this life, they want this life, who are we to tell them it's wrong? Who are we to tell anyone they can't have two men living together, or two women, or any of number of combinations - hate is hate, you may not agree with their choices but think of all the people that don't agree with your lifestyle?



  53. 53

    Why does anyone care of this guy has 50 wives. If he can provide or the family unit (as defined by them) can support each other financially … then who gives a fuck. It's called FREEDOM people … who the fuck are you to judge.



  54. 54

    What happened to "equality and freedom for all" Perez?? Oh … wit, that ONLY applies to your pet interests and gays. Fuck off hypocrite.
