The star of TLC’s Sister Wives,Kody Brown is presenting his case on challenging Utah’s ban on polygamy to Utah’s State District Court. Judge Clark Waddoups ruled that the rules prohibiting “cohabitation” violates the First Amendment guarantee of the free exercise of religion and due process.
Kody used the same argument that proponents of same sex marriage have used in the past that the government should stay out of people’s bedrooms and protecting their legal rights. Kody has four wives and a total of 17 children. The family moved from Utah to Nevada because of the fear of legal prosecution.
While marriage and civil unions are a part of the government purview because of tax reasons, the Browns have postulated that they should have the same legal and tax benefits because they believe that there’s no difference because there’s is also a lifestyle choice. The horrendous history of polygamy may be what has contributed to the backlash against modern day polygamy. The Mormon Church has been quick to distance themselves from the Browns and their reality show.
So will polygamy become the next big debate in America? Are the underlying issues of personal privacy issues that the same sex advocates used in their arguments for equality?
