Apart from maintaining amicability in a plural family, raising kids in an alternative culture is a task. Meri has mentioned that she wanted her kid to have a different experience from her as far as upbringing is concerned. Let us take a detailed look at this.
Sister Wives: Meri Says The Kids Are Free To Be Whoever They Want, Credits Kody And Other Wives
Meri revealed in a sneak peek for Sunday’s episode that her husband and her co-spouses have created a household where kids can be whoever they want as reported by People. Combined, the Brown family has 18 kids. On a recent visit to flagstaff Arizona, Meri’s only daughter Mariah revealed that she is going to move to Utah with her fiance Audrey.
They are moving from Chicago to be closer to the family. Meri loves the fact that her daughter and her fiance got to live the experience of residing in Chicago. She described it as different and fun, stating that it wasn’t something she was able to do.
Meri’s family had a Polygamist culture. But her folks were a little more orthodox and expected their kids to get married at a young age. She added that they needed to have kids and stay mum about who they were. All in all, according to Meri, her parents expected her to live in a little box.
Sister Wives Star Meri Reveals That Having a Plural Family Isn’t Unusual For Her
Just like her daughter, Meri had a handful of siblings who weren’t from her own mother. So it’s safe to say that her own plural lifestyle isn’t unusual for her. Meri explains that even though they had an unconventional family situation for raising kids, they offer them full freedom to be who they want. Of course, we can see that Mariah is doing the same and Meri is proud of her
When Mariah was coming out to her family, she felt like jumping off a cliff. If she didn’t jump then and there, she wasn’t going to jump at all. But even though the Mormon faith of the Brown family doesn’t accept homosexuality, all five parents embraced Mariah. It came as quite a shock to fans as well!
Kody Sad His Job as a Father Is To Respect and Love Instead Of Judging
We have got to give this one to Kody Brown! Most fans think that he doesn’t treat his wives well. But going against his Mormon faith and embracing his kids’ choices is highly commendable. He made it clear that being a father of 18 children brings a great possibility that someone is going to turn out to be gay. He decided to love and respect his children’s life choices instead of judging them. Not only does the family supported Mariah, but they also extend the same love and respect to her fiance.
