A married family of two is bound to face tough times here and there, so to think of the drama a husband and his four wives go through is almost unimaginable. But that’s just the case with the cast of the hit TLC reality show Sister Wives. From facing trouble with the law and divorces to war with the church and endless jealousy, you won’t believe what this family of 23 deals with on a regular basis.
1Only One Legal Wife
Although Kody Brown is known for having four wives, he is currently only legally married to Robyn, his fourth wife. Kody had to divorce Meri, the first wife he married in 1990, in order to adopt Robyn's three children from a previous marriage. In 1993 and 1994, Kody "spiritually" married Janelle and Christine. And even though Kody and Meri are now legally divorced, the two are still spiritually married like the others.
2Meri Was Catfished
While first wife Meri was going through her divorce with Kody, she began talking to someone who she believed was a man named Sam. But as it turned out, “Sam” was preying on Meri’s loneliness and lying to her the entire time. And it wasn’t just little white lies either. In fact, the person Meri had fallen for was actually a woman named Jackie Overton! And even worse was that one of the other wives knew the entire time!
