'Sister Wives' Family -- Just Like The Gays!

7/12/2011 7:20 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

The Mormons and the gays -- they don't always get along ... but thanks to a brand new lawsuit about to be filed by "Sister Wives" star Kody Brown, it seems they have more in common than you'd think!

Brown and his multi-wife "plural" family claim they're filing a lawsuit against the state of Utah tomorrow -- challenging the bigamy law that makes their lifestyle illegal.

The Brown family attorney posted a statement on his blog saying, "We are not demanding the recognition of polygamous marriage. We are only challenging the right of the state to prosecute people for their private relations and demanding equal treatment with other citizens in living their lives according to their own beliefs."

The attorney adds, "It is a challenge designed to benefit not just polygamists but all citizens who wish to live their lives according to their own values -- even if those values run counter to those of the majority in the state."

The legal argument is virtually identical to the one made by supporters of gay marriage ... which is illegal in most U.S. states ... including Utah.

So, we gotta ask ...

I feel each person is entitled to live there life as they choose, if pologamy is what they believe in then who are we to say it's wrong. One persons life is not more important than the other. The only thing is the wives should be at least 18 and actually consent. To each his own! Dont judge lest he be judged himself.

I really like the show "Sister Wives" and the family. The wives have jobs and an education and the children are sent to school and seem very normal to me. My concern with legalizing polygamy is for the 12 year old girls in Polygamist sects that are married off to 60 year old men. Many of the women and children (not including "Sister Wives") are sexually abused; married off young and don't receive a proper education. The women and children are not allowed to leave these "compounds" and have no rights whatsoever. I think that these polygamist sects should be investigated and prosecuted like Warren Jeffs was.

I agree with those saying that legalized gay marriage leads to other types of unconventional marriage. The polygamists have a point, why couldn't they marry as well? Why couldn't parents and adult children or siblings marry? IMHO, marriage should be limited to a man and woman, not related and above the legal age, even though I know that's not popular on this site. Having that said, this polygamist dude is not trying to change the law for marriage, just to make their lifestyle legal which BTW the gays already have.

Polygamy is a thinly veiled welfare & tax fraud. You have a wife and 2 kids. Then you take on 3 "sister wives" with 4 kids a piece. Now you collect welfare & food stamps for 3 unwed mothers & 12 kids. You pay no taxes either. Utah keeps records of this. Communities with a high number of polygamists have up to 65% of the citizens on welfare & food stamps. Look it up.

Since marriage is allowed for homosexuals (gay means happy - most homosexuals aren't) then anyone should be allowed to wed whomever they want, multiples, sisters, brothers, children, everything. After all, if it's okay for one special group then it should be okay for all.

--------------------------------------------------------

No, it should NOT be OK for all. Are you kidding - children?! Children are not at an age of consent. They are not young enough to vote or understand any kind of contract they may be entering into. That's just the legal side of it. The emotional side is far greater. They have an older person, an adult, parent, or other authority figure telling them what to do or the one marrying them that makes them feel they have to enter into the union. They may feel held captive, abused in a whole slew of ways, and should be removed from that home by a Dept. of Family Services of similar organization in that area as soon as humanly possible. And I cringe to think what married brothers and sisters or married parents and children that then have babies would do to the human race's gene pool!

Any combination of legal aged adults should be able to marry each other. I don't care what sex or how many of you their are.
