TLC Introduces a New Polygamous Family in My Five Wives

Move over Sister Wives, there's a new polygamous family in town.

My Five Wives is TLC's latest foray into the world of polygamy. The one-hour special profiles Brady Williams, his five wives and 24 children, who all live together on a large family property outside of Salt Lake City, Utah.

Brady and his wives maintain that they practice polygamy not only for religious reasons, but also out of mutual love and commitment to each other. They are estranged from their church and therefore shunned by their community and many family members, but the Williams family believes the sacrifices are worth it.

No charges will be filed against the polygamous family featured on the TLC reality show Sister Wives.

Before the show premiered in 2010, Utah authorities had begun investigating charges of bigamy against Kody Brown, 44, and his four wives – Meri, 41, Janelle, 43, Christine, 40, and Robyn, 33 – who have 17 children among them, but the case is now closed, reports the Associated Press.

Brown moved his wives and children to Las Vegas in the wake of the investigation and sued Utah County, as well as the state governor and attorney general.

The state lawsuits were later dropped, and on Thursday, Utah County prosecutor Jeff Buhman filed a motion seeking to have the case against the county dismissed.

"Mother's Day is a great day at our house," says Brown, who divides his time between his wives and kids in their four separate houses in Las Vegas. "We want to spend it as a family and make it so my wives don't have to cook."

Kody and Robyn welcomed baby Solomon in October, further cementing the family's ties after Robyn and her three kids Dayton, 12, Aurora, 10, and Breanna, 8, joined the Brown clan, whose show returns to TLC on Sunday (9 p.m. ET).
