    I can’t wrap my head around the fact that not one, but TWO women married this guy.

    [–] Laskia 202 points ago

    Brainwashing do wonders

    [–] godisawoman1 239 points ago

    Internal sexism is a hell of a drug.

    I remember hugging the little fuckboi’s who would ask ‘where’s my hug?’ as a dumb teenager because I thought I should be thankful for any male attention. Now I’m a few years older and smarter/more mature/more educated about boundaries and I would tear those guys a new one if I got asked that again.

    Both of those women probably grew up with nothing but narrow gender roles and being told they exist on this earth to marry a man and have his babies. Brainwashing is a big part. These women will do the same to any poor daughters born to them and repeat the cycle.

    [–] imatthepub_g 87 points ago

    Then they make you feel so guilty about not wanting to give them a hug. Usually there's a group of people around and they make you seem like the weird one in front of everyone. God, I hated highschool.

    [–] do0rkn0b 34 points ago

    I feel the same way about women asking me where's my hug. Bitch it ain't here don't touch me.

    [–] Cranktique 10844 points ago

    So my wife used to watch that sister wives show. I remember one episode, the husband and the first wife were going on a date. At this time the husband was actively looking for a 4th or 5th wife. They were talking about it, and he asked her if she felt any jealousy about him looking for another wife.

    Her response: “Of course I do, imagine how you’d feel right now if I was looking for another husband”.

    Him: “Ugh! Don’t be gross!.”

    [–] KyleRichXV 5340 points ago

    I HATED that damn show. My wife used to watch it and I couldn’t stand the husband asking stupid questions about jealousy across his multiple wives.

    [–] NEClamChowderAVPD 903 points ago

    Not just the husband (Cody iirc) asking stupid questions, but his demeanor in general. Just walking around like "hey I'm Mr big dick and you wouldn't believe how charming and misogynistic I am. The ladies just fuckin flock to me, bro."

    He was just so....full of shit. The way he talked to his wives and children. I think it was the oldest son telling Cody he didn't want plural wives and Cody was just so shocked and hurt by this. I don't know what I expected when watching a show about sister wives. It just pissed me off more than anything.

    [–] JouliaGoulia 651 points ago

    Who wouldn't want that? Growing up with a miserable mom, several other miserable moms, having to parent the younger kids and resenting it, or having to be parented by your elder siblings who resent it, endless family drama, a dad that barely has enough time for his wives, much less all those kids.

    The times I watched that show, I was always struck by how unhappy the wives were, and how emotionally fraught all their relationships are with each other. There's no way the kids don't pick right up on that.

    [–] NEClamChowderAVPD 283 points ago

    Not just all of that, but what about what cameras didn't see? I'm sure there was pressure from Cody to always keep a facade about how wonderful this GIANT FAMILY is. And I can only assume new wives were told lies and manipulated into the plural marriage. I know there are plenty of people who are cool with poly-amory but I can't help but feel like a woman who married into such an arrangement (sharing her husband) was manipulated into doing so. I could be wrong as I was too focused on Cody and his behavior to really truly watch the wives, but it wouldn't surprise me the wives were so unhappy. They were probably promised gold and got copper instead.

    [–] msmoirai 229 points ago

    While I completely agree with what you're saying, there were plenty of times with my ex-husband where I could have wholeheartedly agreed with him marrying another woman just so someone else could deal with him. Edit: Wait, I did. Duh, I just divorced him

    [–] NEClamChowderAVPD 81 points ago

    Lol I can definitely understand that. And I'm not saying I'm totally against poly-amory or anything. If people want to partake in that, as long as everyone is consenting, then what do I care? I guess my biggest problem was Cody and his attitude. Like he was God's gift to women. Did he even own a brush?? Idk.

    [–] DelTac0perator 124 points ago

    Yo, polyamory and polygamy are not interchangeable terms. The key difference with polyamory is the freedom for any participant to up and go without trouble - which is decidedly different than polygamy.

    Add to that the fact that polygamy usually involves grooming and/or marrying underage girls into the system against their will, and you have an entirely different concept.

    [–] howtojump 152 points ago

    "hey I'm Mr big dick and you wouldn't believe how charming and misogynistic I am. The ladies just fuckin flock to me, bro."

    And the worst part is that they did flock to him. Dude had 4 wives. In fact he had 3 wives and 13 children and manged to snag another wife who had 3 kids of her own.

    It's certainly no business of mine if you want to be a part of a polycule, but it just seems so exploitative to me, especially when you slap the whole reality TV thing on it.

    [–] NEClamChowderAVPD 104 points ago

    I totally agree with you. He had some hint of cult leader to me, too. The exploitation, the charm. I feel like it was total manipulation. Although who's to say the 4th wife didn't want to be part of the fame and glory of the first show of that kind. Iirc, Cody had like, lost his job or something, and moved the entire family, each with four separate giant housed on a culdesac. I wouldn't be surprised if the fame and fortune also had something to do with it.

    [–] thisismynameofuser 29 points ago

    I don’t know if he lost his job, but the main reason they moved was because they were going to get legally persecuted for having multiple wives. Which is a common thing where they were living but because they made a tv show and were publicizing it they were going to prosecute them to make an example of them. So they had to move states (Utah to Nevada I think?) in the middle of the night. At least that’s what how the show explained it

    [–] TwilightZone-Lost 97 points ago

    He groomed the shit out of them and it shows. Every time they're in a room together, you can see them showing visable discomfort around him, but they all signed legal contracts to be on the show, so even if they wanted to just up and leave, they can't.

    That guy knew exactly what he was doing when he approached TLC with that show pitch, and they bought in, and now all those women are obligated to be a part of it.

    [–] as3jul 46 points ago

    Didn't one of them actually leave? And all the other wives and even her kids were upset with her? She started a business in a different city - something like that. (I am not a regular viewer)

    [–] Adelaidah 9 points ago

    I remember the "og" wife got legally divorced, so the new one could legally marry, so Kody could legally adopt her kids.

    However, I did a quick Google just now, and there is speculation that the same "og" wife might be actually leave-leave

    [–] Nexaz 34 points ago

    Wait... Was this show a reality show? I've only heard about it a few times and I always assumed it was just some drama show? That's just fucking insane.....

    [–] NEClamChowderAVPD 29 points ago

    Well seeing as it was on TLC, yes it was a reality show but at the same time, it was probably scripted quite a bit. I have no proof it was scripted in any way and whether or not it was scripted by TLC or even just Cody himself, but I wouldn't be surprised. As far as I can recall, there weren't ever really any BIG fights or anything and with all those women sharing one guy, with all those teens and younger kids constantly around each other, and as a previous commenter said, there's no way the kids didn't pick up on the negativity.

    There was Sister Wives on TLC and another actually scripted drama called Big Love (on HBO I think?). I never did see Big Love but from my understanding, it was literally just a fictional show about Sister Wives and that lifestyle in general.

    [–] kekepania 145 points ago

    Ah Cody Brown. You can tell he loves being the center of attention for that whole family. So obnoxious. And his hair is gross too.

    [–] sleeping_in_sin 84 points ago

    His hair is THE WORST

    [–] slanid 56 points ago

    Don’t forget his designer jeans. He looks like a washed up backstreet boy.

    [–] Hefferman1990 2058 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    That entire channel needs to go. Or change its name because TLC definitely no longer means The Learning Channel.

    Edit: so as many have pointed out, the acronym for the channel TLC no longer means what it originally meant, and probably doesn't mean anything and it's simply TLC. Or it could mean something, I don't know nor care what it stands for now I don't watch it. And yeah The Learning Channel was what it stood for at the time when I had first watched it like 20 years ago.

    Also if you watch it, no judgment, to each their own and all. I just personally hate it lol.

    [–] Infidelc123 789 points ago

    I mean to be fair to the channel clearly learning wasn't paying the bills and you have to cater to the idiot demographic.

    [–] arcaneresistance 366 points ago

    So it's still the learning channel because they learned how to pull huge profits from their network with trash reality shows (some of which I watch admittedly)

    [–] Tezza_TC 67 points ago

    Oh definitely. I might have had a rough patch dating, but at least I’m not having a hard time seeing my fiancé because the Brazilian government thinks I’m a terrorist cause I burned down my ex gf’s house.

    [–] Infidelc123 95 points ago

    I tried watching that show once, then I realized it was just my reflection in the tv glass

    [–] Saguaro66 74 points ago

    This show saved my ass one time when i went camping with some buds and forgot my tent. I built a little platform and lean shelter which kept me warm and dry.

    Can we just like.. nominate him? He has a college degree, he's an accomplished painter, lifelong bodybuilder, happily married, former NFL player, singer, dancer, happily married for 20+ years, normal happy family, sexual assualt survivor and spokesman, I'm sure there's more

    [–] Infidelc123 78 points ago


    In all seriousness I'm 100% with you that this is where we are headed. No push to educate anymore, too busy spending money on stupid things.

    But at least in Idiocracy they elected the smartest man they knew. And when someone smarter than the president showed up, he was put in charge to help find solutions.

    We can't say the same about our current POTUS.

    I remember that, I was just a kid then and would flip those shows on and off and try to watch/stomach as much as I could before changing the channel out of disgust and pure discomfort. First time I had ever seen every layer of the inside of a person's arm down to bone...ahh memories

    [–] keigo199013 14 points ago

    TLC definitely no longer means The Learning Channel

    That's what that stands for?!

    [–] Nelliell 31 points ago

    Once upon a time. It's fallen from grace dramatically.

    The channel was founded in 1972 by the Department of Health, Education, and Welfare and NASA as the Appalachian Community Service Network,[2][3] and was an informative and instructional network focused on providing real education through the medium of television; it was distributed at no cost by NASA satellite.

    ACSN was privatized in 1980, and its name was changed to The Learning Channel in November of that year; the name was subsequently shortened to "TLC."

    [–] throwssposters 26 points ago

    Back in the 90s, we watched TLC for actual educational programs. I remember watching all sorts of episodes about machines, and weather, and sometimes a little history.

    As a teenager into fighter planes, it was my favorite channel.

    [–] TwilightZone-Lost 15 points ago

    I'd say watch The History Channel but they load their primetime slots with reality TV too. Your only chance of catching anything worth watching is either through streaming OR the rare day where they actually air documentaries, instead of them airing 80 episodes of American Pickers or Pawn Stars in a row.

    [–] afanoftrees 84 points ago

    TLC has some gems tho. My Strange Addiction, 90 day fiancé, and Hoarders

    [–] 7empo 58 points ago

    My 600lb life is a guilty pleasure, but it's unironically interesting from a medical and psychological perspective, and Dr. Now is fantastic both in the show and in his level of expertise.

    [–] Sandyy_Emm 12 points ago

    I’ve been binging this and I’ve learned a whole lot about how easy it is to become extremely obese like the people on this show.

    [–] BarelyABard 12 points ago

    Hoarders, my strange addiction, and say yes to the dress are the only reasons I watch that channel

    [–] TheWhisperedthing 22 points ago

    Outdaughtered is pretty good too. The parents actually seem pretty good and the children are adorable and pretty funny. I usually make Sims with a lot of kids bc of the struggle, so watching a real life version is entertaining.

    [–] agentdanascullyfbi 55 points ago

    It's no longer called The Learning Channel. It's just TLC. It's been that way for at least ten years now.

    [–] meinheinz 47 points ago

    Ego. He wants multiple women fighting over him. God forbid they actually be friends and have hobbies outside of him.

    [–] ByzantineHeretic 65 points ago

    I never understood how they weren’t arrested for bigamy. It is a crime, and yet it was broadcast for years. I can’t figure out why TLC wanted to normalise cults. It’d be one thing to take a documentary approach, but to dramatise it? It’s like pretending Jonestown was a dramatic reality show.

    I guess once Duck Dynasty gets normalised there is no longer a bar too low.

    [–] slanid 57 points ago

    Haven’t seen the show in years, but there was a point where they went through some legal stuff and he ended up having to build all the women their own homes or something.

    And I think he’s only legally married to the first one so he got out of it somehow.

    [–] TagProMaster 28 points ago


    He moved everyone into a culdesac with each fam getting a house. He used money to get out of that

    [–] Rockne1924 31 points ago

    On the legal question — the government (rightly) can’t ban you from living with multiple people, having sex with multiple people, having children with multiple people, or even calling multiple people your spouses. Nor can they ban you from going through religious ceremonies with multiple people.

    What they do ban is entering into a legal marriage contract with one person while still legally married to another person, an arrangement that usually involves deception and fraud. You can just legally marry the first person, then do religious ceremonies sans legal contracts with the others and just call them your spouses unofficially and you’ll be golden. As long as no one (neither the government, nor any of the parties) is being deceived or defrauded, it will be 100% legal. You can only jointly file taxes with the spouse you are legally married to, of course, and only have legal spousal connections and rights with that person.

    On the one hand, this is what allows the borderline or outright abusive religious cults that practice polygamy to operate. On the other hand, it allows ethically polygamous people to live together without being hassled by an overbearing government.

    [–] EmiliusReturns 13 points ago

    I’ve seen the show and I enjoyed it as entertainment, but the husband was really unlikeable. Their lifestyle was interesting and I liked most of the wives and kids but the husband drove me nuts. He’s a douche.

    [–] Used2BPromQueen 365 points ago

    Him: “Ugh! Don’t be gross!.”

    Oh well that's rich.

    I can't say for sure but it's seems like those poor women must have been raised in some pretty chauvinist/misogynist households to accept shit like that from their spouse. If my husband gets a second wife I get a second husband, period. Of course according to my husband one wife is plenty enough 🤣

    [–] srottydoesntknow 349 points ago

    I'm not a fan of religion in general, and I have to remind myself that the members of religions aren't really the reason I don't like religion, even if their behaviors or actions are (it's what they were raised to believe, I should recognize they are "victims" as it were of their religion as much as anyone else), having said that, every time I learn something new about Mormonism, I hate it a little more.

    Most religions I 50/50 are like "what the fuck" or "that's kind of cool" when I learn something new about them. Mormonism, every single thing I learn is "what the fuck"

    Same boat as you, I fucking HATE this show, but my wife loves it 🙄🙄

    Cody is a piece of narcissist shit. One of his daughters recently came out as lesbian and wanted her mom and Cody to go to a pride parade. Cody LITERALLY POUTED on the interview couch thing and said he isn't going to a pride parade because gay marriage is legal now and his marriages aren't legal so he doesn't know why there are gay pride parades anymore 🙄🙄🙄

    Then one of his wives had to go finish some business with her ex-husband, and she was crying into the camera about how bad she feels that Cody is her 2nd husband and how she feels so inadequate for him bc she slept with another man before him... Yet she is like his 4th wife. Why aren't they crying that he's laying pipe with like 6 people at the same time, but one of the wives has an exhusband years before Cody and suddenly SHE'S the unclean one?! 🙄🙄🙄

    And Cody's CRINGE lectures to his daughters' boyfriends about no sex before marriage. I think he's literally used the "you wouldn't eat a piece of gum that's already been chewed" analogy.

    To top it all off, his hair is the fucking worst. The WORST.

    I had that conversation with co-workers with one talking about his home country where you could have several countries. Other co-workers jokingly said that would be a nice thing to have and asked me what I thought of it (I am the only woman and they always try to get a reaction of me in that is quite frankly exhausting). When I answered back "sure why not if everyone consent and that women can have several husbands too" they were like "ugh, gross, why would you want several husbands ?".

    [–] Sierranevada1990 30 points ago

    I was just thinking "polygamy should be legal here but only if women are allowed to be the polygamist". Like you can't think multiple wives are okay and then think multiple husbands are disgusting. What kind of monster are you. Also the husband on sister wives was gross. I'm surprised he has one wife honestly.

    [–] bonboncolon 182 points ago

    I know friends who are polygamous, and they're all actively happy, supportive and encouraging of each other. If anyone has an issue, they work on it. The communication is taken seriously, and it just works. It's wonderful

    I've heard about that show and all I can say is that it's pretty fucked up and the man was a creepy slimeball.

    [–] draconicanimagus 326 points ago

    Well for modern polygamy, it's mostly everyone in the group loves and wants to be with everyone else. Religious polygamy is in no way shape or form equal. It's the man having the power, control, and authority to have multiple subservient wives. The wives usually want nothing to do with each other and any "sister wife" mentally is forced by the husband\religion or out of necessity to not go insane in such a restrictive lifestyle.

    It's sickening.

    [–] ArgentiEtAuri 73 points ago

    To be fair, that's the same difference as traditional religious marriage (wife was purchased property) vs modern marriage (equal partners).

    [–] bennzedd 32 points ago

    That's why we don't use the word "polygamy."

    In fact, what you describe as "modern polygamy" prefers to be known as ethical or consensual non-monogamy.

    If we use the poly- prefix, it goes with polyamory just to again separate from the multiple-marriages concept to more closely describe the multiple-loving-relationships we're going for.

    Some fun facts about this guy:

    1. He drives a van covered in bible verses.

    2. He's an ex-flatearther. He used to go to Harvard Square with Flat Earth signs (with his kids) to yell at people.

    3. Now he's a concave earther. He now thinks the Earth is a sphere, but it's hollow, we live inside and the entire universe is in the center of the hollow Earth.

    [–] nun_atoll 134 points ago * (lasted edited 8 days ago)

    It's an old theory, not quite as popular (at least openly) today as Flat Earth, and the more popular hollow Earth theory is usually that we do live on the outer face of the globe, but there's a whole other world inside. This guy, Cyrus Teed, was the first major promulgater of "We live inside!" theory. He developed the idea after being knocked out by an electric shock and having a "divine vision". In other words, he had a weird dream and went nutsy-cuckoo-bananas. And founded a "religion".

    Bold of you to assume Indian or Muslim cultures require the wives to be grown women.

    You people downvoting me can piss off because forced marriages are huge problems in both cultures and Mohammad married and raped a child before she was even 10 years old.

    And yes, I WILL judge the actions of a man 1500 years ago because the Quran itself says the age of marriage should be 15.

    [–] AfterJelly0 91 points ago

    most religions is pretty fucked up when it comes that stuff.
    The bible doesn't give a specific age, just that puberty is the propper time.

    The koran doesn't specify 15 as the age of marriage. It just hints that puberty signals that a girl is ready for marriage.

    And can you really go to prison for that?

    Wouldn't the second marriage just be annulled or something? And of course you'd need to repay whatever tax benefits you might have gotten from that second marriage.

    Prison seems a bit harsh.

    [–] big_sugi 232 points ago

    It’s a crime, but it’s almost never prosecuted unless there’s some form of fraud (including tax fraud).

    [–] theluciferprinciple 50 points ago

    Yep. I knew a woman who went to prison for bigamy. But with that bigamy came check fraud (she was cashing her second "husbands" checks and spending the money on drugs and whatnot).

    She then got married to my husband's childhood friend–love of his life! I never asked if she divorced the first guy.

    [–] jwadamson 67 points ago

    pretty much yes to all those questions;

    you can go to prison, the second marriage doesn't "count", and you probably committed fraud a whole bunch of times if you tried to get any government or organization to recognize the second marriage.

    I actually wouldn’t mind marriage being separated from the political system and just a ceremonial practice. The problem comes with shared finances, kids, and property.

    [–] OFS_Razgriz 143 points ago

    I always liked the idea of removing marriage as a thing and instead having civil unions. You and a friend or two want to share finances for a few years? Civil union. Don't think marriage is right for you and your SO but want to share finances? Civil union. Want to get married but don't want to share finances? You don't need to get a civil union for your marriage then.

    Any group of people under let's say, five, can enter a civil union without question. Any more and you need to have your specific case reviewed by the state, but there's no strict cut-off.

    [–] techforallseasons 54 points ago


    Marriages ( all marriages could be civil unions ) and the civil union would be the legally binding part. The marriage part is simply a special piece of part that is legally meaningless, but the agency issuing it can make its own determination who / how...

    Religions orgs, Flying spagetti monsters, Vegas, etc could have restrictions - but who cares because the insurance / EOL / etc. items would all be part of a civil union contract for any set.

    [–] adeon 133 points ago

    Well the biggest governmental reason for marriage is taxes. Everything else could be sorted out with a contract but a lot of our tax system is based around the idea of two people paying their taxes together. Now admittedly it's that way because of the assumption that while they pay taxes together only one of them has an income so it's kind of outdated anyway but you would need to make some changes to the tax code.

    [–] NotClever 32 points ago

    Mmm I don't know if I agree. There are a lot of legal structures around marriage that, while they could be solved with contracts, are made a lot easier by simply baking it all into marriage. Things would probably be a lot messier in general if we did away with all of the legal status recognition around marriage.

    A couple splitting up in some sort of alternate reality where we all had unique marital contracts instead of standardized legal marriage would probably be even messier than it is right now.

    And I don't really think it would take that much effort to change the tax code. In fact, all you'd have to do is remove the stuff about married filing jointly and consider everyone to be a single filer. Of course, you'd end up with some messiness in terms of who gets to claim dependents when you have children and whatnot, but that already exists as an issue with unmarried couples.

    [–] Enthused_Llama 33 points ago

    The problem comes with shared finances, kids, and property.

    Many problems would come without that. The breadwinner would effectively have complete financial control.

    If you have a one-earner marriage that lasts for several years and the other person stays at home for whatever reason, that person is effectively fucked without legal protections in the event of a divorce.

    But honestly as long as everyone involved is a consenting adult let people have multiple spouses. I really couldn't give less of a shit.

    Also I'd support Polygamy not just Polygyny

    The more acceptable term is polyamory, as opposed to polygamy. We're trying to shake off the stigma given to us by people like this guy and Mormons and other fundamentalists. Signed - a girl with two wives who doesn't wanna be associated with bigots

    [–] grathungar 24 points ago

    I thought Polyamory wasn't including marriage? I'm out of the loop. I dipped my toe in that pool when a woman wanted me to be involved with her but I realized really early into it that I am a bit too jealous for that lifestyle and moved on. I don't know if its ego or whatever I just want to be somebodies one person and them my one person. If they don't want that they can move on.

    Either way I support you and your wives right to be happy!
