Kody Brown & his 4 wives and leave Utah

Kody Brown has one legal wife plus 3 religious wives, and left Utah for Nevada last year. They are worried about prosecutions, the State has promised it won't prosecute, but Kody doesn't trust them!

http://www.nationalmemo.com/sister-w...ah-bigamy-law/

I am asking, what is the point of having a bigamy law, and then publicly ignoring it? It also seems some would like a prosecution under the non co-habitation laws which are also on the statutes.

What a funny country, why doesn't he just buy a dishwasher and send the latest 3 wives home?

Maybe Mit Romney could give us his views?

They don't have cars out there, just pickup trucks. So that's one in front of the gun rack, and 3 behind it!

And doesn't Nevada have bigamy laws?

Isn`t bigamy when you marry another person while still married to someone? A "legal" type marriage?

"Traditional" or "Religious" ceremonies are different, arent they? They don`t fall under the "Legal" marriages.

South Africa accepts the indigenous "Tribal" marriages - President Zuma has numerous "wives".

And what about "common-law" partners?

Tis only that contract between the State and the people that matters, I think, the one it takes Lawyers and a Judge to break?

Probably Smoky is correct. He isn't married legally to the last 3 wives, so he is safer in Nevada, but the Utah laws on sexual co-habitation would get them if they went back.
