Sister Wives Family Bringing Utah To Court Over Bigamy Law

sister wives vs utah

Watch Out, Utah! Kody and his wives are coming for you!

Back in January, the Sister Wives family moved to Nevada, and at the time they SAID their reasoning was to "explore new job opportunities."

We'd say, though, that a major influence for the move was the fact that Kody Brown can live with 4 wives legally in Nevada.

While Kody and his wives may have moved on to Nevada, they're still unhappy about Utah's bigamy law, which makes their polygamous lifestyle illegal, and they've decided to fight it in court.

The Sister Wives family's attorney Jonathan Turley says their lawsuit will "challenge Utah's right to prosecute people for their private relationships."

Here's a statement from the family:

"We are not demanding the recognition of polygamous marriage. We are only challenging the right of the state to prosecute people for their private relations and demanding equal treatment with other citizens in living their lives according to their own beliefs."

This is a pret-ty big issue, but the Sister Wives family are certainly widely known, so at the very least they'll bring lots of awareness to the issue of the legality of polygamous marriage.

What do U think about this lawsuit? Do U think the Sister Wives family have a case here?
