Kody Brown has a message for his four wives – they are free to get a divorce and leave any time they want!

This isn’t a threat however; it is a heartfelt promise that he exclusively tells that he made to MeriJanelleChristine and Robyn Brown when they entered into a polygamist marriage with him.

“We are in this by choice,” Kody vows, and says that the upcoming season of their reality show will delve into how they’re helping others who are forced to live a polygamist lifestyle against their will.

The husband of four and father of seventeen tells that he would never force any of his wives to stay with him if they didn’t want to.

“Any one of them could get a divorce and leave if they want to,” he insists.

As previously reported, earlier this year Meri ran a 5k in Utah that benefited victims who were kicked out of or are trying to leave polygamous groups, including the Warren Jeffs led Fundamnetalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-DaySaints.

Kody says that he is also now committed to trying to help these victims too.

“I’ve wanted to connect to this side of it for a very long time. When people want to leave and they need help to leave we are trying to get involved in that,” he says.

While polygamy remains controversial, Kody says he feels for those who are stuck in the lifestyle against their will.

“I don’t think people really have a choice to stay. There has always been a need for this society to allow this freedom," he says. "If you don’t want to be in you should be allowed to leave. And they make it so hard for them. They already own them financially there is so much extortion going on in that community.”

Robyn was very supportive of Meri’s 5k race, and explains to why.

“The reason why we wanted to connect with them is that everybody should have a choice.," she says. "If someone feels trapped by it, like they don’t have a choice, children, women, men or they become a victim in their situation or people have abused their power in the religious community we want to support people and help them."

She says that not everyone lives the way she and her sister wives do with Kody.

“We had our choice to be in it and if someone wants out of it they should be given that choice too,” she says.

Sister Wives premieres on TLC Sunday, November 18 at 9/8c.
