Kody Brown and The Sister Wives Diss Idea of Plural Brother Husbands Preview

We think they’re crazy for wanting to be sister wives but the Brown family think we’re nuts for even asking why they don’t believe in brother/husbands.

This episode, the Browns travel to Boston to face questions from college students in a religious studies class and they seem incredulous that the students don’t get why they wouldn’t be as gung ho about brother husbands as sister wives.

So why do Kody, his wives and their religious community believe in polygamous marriage? Well, they’ve never really answered that question but they came the closest here, responding to student questions.

“All religions have rules and beliefs that they think bring them close to God, and they can be as simple as rules that you can, and can’t eat,” explains Janelle.

Though of course, those rules can also be as incredibly complicated as plural marriage, for the Brown family.

“Living plural marriage is a commandment designed for our happiness. We just don’t do it the other way around,” insists Janelle.

Kody just LAUGHS when the idea of brother husbands is brought up as if the rest of us are just clueless for even wondering about it.

Meanwhile Meri is insistent that polygamous marriage is the cat’s meow. “The way a plural marriage is for us – is one of one man and multiple wives.”

“We just don’t do it the other way around,” says Meri, who has two reasons for buying into that. “From a religious standpoint, I don’t believe in it and from a personal standpoint I wouldn’t choose multiple husbands because then I wouldn’t have any ‘me time’ and I’m just not going there!”

Sounds like Meri is quite happy to only have Kody one/quarter of the time.

Kody- should you be proud of that?

Hmm, seeing as though polyamory was abolished in the mormon faith I don’t see how they can say this is their “faith”.

Did God give Abraham wives and concubines?
Yes, because there are not enough men on the face of the earth for all women. There is not always a safe place in this world. Did God not command that we go forth and multiply and replenish the earth and subdue it? The fact that there are a few men on this earth that force young girls to be married without the child’s consent is as I see it a sin. But for those that are responsible adults that take Gods commandments seriously I see nothing wrong. The only problem may be that all men do not see the word of God the same. And one day I hope soon there will be a clarification of all things that man and Gods word will be as one.

Personally, I don’t know why any woman would want to have more than one husband—just more immature BS to put up with.
