Inside the Emotional Sister Wives Adoption: 'It Was a Validation of Our Family'

Originally posted 10/28/2015 01:00PM

It wasn't an easy process for Sister Wives star Kody Brown to adopt his fourth wife Robyn's three children from a previous marriage.

He had to divorce his first wife Meri – who is one of four women who live a polygamist lifestyle with Brown on TLC's hit reality series – then legally marry fourth wife Robyn before the adoption could even become a possibility.

"We had to do the restructuring so that we would do the adoption," Meri says in this week's issue of PEOPLE. "That was something that I decided to do just for the purpose of the kids. And the adoption, it was something that I knew that they wanted to have their legal name Brown. They really wanted to be adopted."

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.
