SALT LAKE CITY (AP) — Brady Williams has five wives, 24 children but no organized religion.
The newest polygamous family from Utah on reality TV considers itself progressive and independent. Williams and his wives slowly withdrew from the fundamentalist Mormon church in their rural community outside of Salt Lake City during the mid-2000s after re-evaluating their core beliefs.
The family no longer teaches the tenants of fundamental Mormonism to their children at home, opting instead to take from other teachings such as Buddhism to instill values in their children.
The family is bracing for newfound attention now that TLC has debuted the one-hour special about the family, called "My Five Wives." The show, which airs again Monday night, could turn into a full series depending on ratings.
