One of 18 children in the polygamist marriage, Mariah tells her parents “I’m gay.”
In a preview for the next episode, her birth parents Kody and Meri are less than pleased about the announcement.
US Weekly reports:
Meri tells Kody, “You were like smiling and happy and saying you were so happy for her. And I’m just … I don’t …” Kody replies, “We’re not happy Mariah’s gay; we’re happy Mariah knows herself.”
However, in an interview last year sister wife Robyn revealed that although Mormon Fundamentalism does not approve of homosexuality the family believes that “all adults should be able to choose who they love and how they structure their family.”
