I respectfully disagree. Kody Brown is legally married to only one woman, i.e.: there is only one ...
Thank you for your input, Ma'am.
With all due respect, I'm afraid we just compare notes instead of helping me out. I wouldn't ask for or accept condescending help from anyone. Besides that, personally I think that was little helpful to me.
Though people don't get the marriage license from the state, the marriage of Brown is de facto polygamyvirtually sanctioned by the court of Utah.
Brown calls the four women who live with him wives, as you RESPECTFULLY addressed them "wives" too in latest post of yours. At least Bill Clinton never called Monica Lewinsky his second wife.
There are more than 40,000 people in Utah who involve in polygamy.
Here is the summary about the laws in different US states. Brown has not been punished at all. On the contrary, he got his mental damage compensation ruled by the court as well.
******** from Wikipedia******
Bigamy is the act or condition of a person marrying another person while still being lawfully married to another spouse. It is illegal in the United States. The crime is punishable by a fine, imprisonment, or both, according to the law of the individual state and the circumstances of the offense.
Many US courts (e.g. Turner v. S., 212 Miss. 590, 55 So.2d 228) treat bigamy as a strict liability crime: in some jurisdictions a person can be convicted of a felony even if reasonably certain there was only one legal spouse. For example, if a person has the mistaken belief that their previous spouse is dead or that their divorce is final, they can still be convicted of bigamy if they marry a new person.
Let me end this post of mine with "have a good one" instead of "hope this helps".
