TMZ just received a statement from the Brown family -- saying, "We are disappointed in the announcement of an investigation, but when we decided to do this show, we knew there would be risks."

The family continues, "But for the sake of our family, and most importantly, our kids, we felt it was a risk worth taking."

Yesterday, the Lehi Police Department in Utah announced that the family is being investigated for felony bigamy ... and plans to turn over all evidence to the Utah County Attorney's Office for review and possible prosecution.

The show features a 42-year-old man named Kody Brown -- who has 3 wives, a prospective 4th wife and 13 children.

I wonder if Cody Brown thinks he looks like Jesus with his crappy hair-do and scrubby hair on face, but he just looks like a fool. As far as I am concerned it isn't love on his part it is lust. If he thinks that he will make it to heaven he will be in for a rude awakening. I feel sorry for the kids. He rules the sister wives and children. I wish wife #4's ex-husband would get custody of her children.

They are unlike the groups who marry their young children into marriage. They are a group of 5 adults who choose to live this life. They do not force it on their children. It is not my place in this world to judge this family. There is no abuse,they are not hurting anyone.
How would you feel about someone telling you how to live your life and make the rules. We are coming to a place in this country where we are loseing are rights.
People live together with out the right of marriage,have children abuse those kids and get away with it.
Then the state of florida lets a child murder get away with it.if you want to fight a process do it for the children who are abused,go hungry,have not family who cares about them.
Why can't each family be based on how they live. Those kids are bing thrown into a witch hunt.Some of them have said they will not be in one when they are older but that is why we have free choice.

we accept guy and lesbian relationships,we dont mind hugh hefners unlimited relationships.this family where every thing is based on honesty and fairness,they are raising well balanced kids and the wives dont have to worry about their husbands unfaithfullness.i would like to know how many couples in America married only once in their life time and stayed loyal to their spouses or lived happily ever after.
