EXCLUSIVE! Inside Secrets Of The 'Sister Wives' — How They Make It Work In A Family Of 20!

Most Americans couldn’t imagine living with and supporting three spouses, a fiancée and 16 children — but somehow polygamist Kody Brown does it with a smile. How can he afford to keep up his multi-marriage lifestyle?

It’s kind of creepy to think about marrying a man who already has three wives and more than dozen children, but somehow Kody Brown and his brood — the stars of TLC’s new reality show Sister Wives — relish their lifestyle. Sources close to the family tell HollywoodLife.com Kody cuts a ton of corners to keep his family living in what appears to be the lap of luxury!

Insiders tell HollywoodLife.com how Kody, 42, has turned to others in the polygamist community for support.

“They all pitch in,” one source spills. “The house isn’t tough to take care of once it’s built since you have three wives and all of the kids. The building supplies are cheap since one of the leaders of the polygamist group 20 miles from where I live owns a lumber place. Their homes aren’t REALLY nice.”

But even if the home’s exterior do serve as a facade for a not-so-nice interior, how do the Browns afford groceries, gas, clothing and other basic necessities?

“They have mostly mini-vans, and the kids start working as young as they can usually 14 to 16 years old,” our insider informs us.

The possibility of adding more children and wives to the brood hasn’t been ruled out, but for now Kody is concentrating on his sales job and heading up Kody Brown Family Entertainment.

In all the interviews I’ve seen with Kody and his wives, or any polygamist, it seems they talk about their reasons being because of a desire for spreading love and family. But, if that’s truly their belief, why not add “Brother Husbands”, too? Wouldn’t that spread the love and the family even further? I’ve NEVER heard that question seriously asked of any polygamist. It makes me question the true sincerity of the lifestyle – or belief.

As long as the the clan is happy, I don’t see any reason why they should not be left alone and be legally prosecuted. To each his own. Go on with your lives, girls. I would rather hear a happy polygamous family rather than a monogamous family fighting all the way….And congratulations, Kody!

Some of these individuals in polygamy community draw government benefits for unmarried individuals without Father so they take your taxes and live off.

They are not as self sustaining as they say.

I cannot stand these people. All the 1st wife has done is given him permission to cheat.The rest “Sister Wives” have done the same.All these women are, garden tools Hoe’s. He is a ManWhore. I hope this show goes off the air. I still cannot believe TLC has this on. I thought TLC was a family channel.
