Sister Wives is a 30 minute reality series on TLC about Kody Brown and his four wives who lived together with their seventeen kids in a polygamist family. The most revealing aspect of the series is how close the relationship is between the four wives. Of course, there are sometimes challenges in a household with five adults and 17 children where everyone doesn't always see things the same way. And then there are further challenges in dealing with people and government officials who don't approve of their lifestyle. Generating enough income to support 22 people is also often a consideration.

Sister Wives Trivia
Kody, his wives and kids lived in Lehi Utah, a suburb of Salt Lake City when the series began and then eventually moved to Las Vegas, Nevada. The family decided to make the move after the Lehi Police Department and the Utah Attorney General started investigations into possible bigamy charges however Kody claimed the move was made to explore better employment opportunities. TMZ reported that they were told that the six hour trip took the Browns 30 hours due to numerous issues with their vehicle including eight blown tires! They arrived in Las Vegas in episode #20, "Sister Wives in the City of Sin".
The Browns are members of the Apostolic United Brethren Church which is a fundamentalist Mormon institution that supports a polygamist lifestyle but is not affiliated with the official Mormon Church, "The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints" which has denounced polygamy.
Kody's only legal marriage is to Meri who he married in 1990. Kody considers the other three relationships to be "spiratual unions". He formed his "union" with Janelle in 1993, with Christine in 1994 and with Robyn in 2010.
Robyn was previously married in a monogamous relationship and had three children who she brought into the Brown family. Since then, she and Kody have had another child together.
The only wife that was not raised in a polygamist family is Janelle.
Shortly after Christine formed her "union" with Kody, Janelle's mother did the same with Kody's father.
