Kody Brown, the Fundamentalist Mormon whose polygamist lifestyle plays out on reality TV, states in this video clip that he and his wives and their 13 children aren’t looking for acceptance so-to-speak. Their goal in coming out and bringing their lifestyle before the public is to try to make society as a whole a better place by allowing people the opportunity to gain insight into polygamy. The rest of us associate polygamy with something bad and illegal. Kody Brown and his wives hope that their story will bring about greater tolerance. They aren’t trying to push polygamy on the rest of the world, says Brown in the video. They just want to be allowed to live their lives the way they chose to live it and freely hold their beliefs without having to hide for fear of persecution.
Kody Brown’s wives are Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn.
