Meet the polygamist family that is so controversial that even other polygamists disapprove of their ways.
Brady Williams is a former church bishop that has five wives and 24 children. The family of 30 takes up two homes right next to one another, with each wife and her kids getting their own space.
In 2014, the unconventional family opened their doors for an unprecedented peek inside their home in Salt Lake City, UT.
Williams’ wives are Paulie, Robyn, Nonie, Rhonda, and Rosemary. Every night, Brady rotates between them so that they get to sleep with him every fifth night. If it’s one of the wives’ birthday, they get to spend an extra night with their husband.
Oh, and then there’s the Brady Pillow…
The Williams family used to be fundamentalist Mormons, but transitioned into “progressive polygamists.” Because their lifestyle includes imbibing alcohol and expressing their more open-minded beliefs, the family has been shunned by other more traditional polygamist families. The Williams’ describe themselves as misfits who are treated as outsiders by their own community.
“It’s not that complicated. We love each other,” Brady says. “It’s just normal times five.”
