One of Kody Brown’s several children, 19-year-old Maddie Brown, is engaged to her longtime boyfriend Caleb Brush, 28. Unlike her parents (Janelle Brown is her mother), Maddie and Caleb have decided to have a monogamous marriage. Everything about their engagement has had a touch of tradition including Caleb asking Kody for Maddie’s hand in marriage. But when Madison tries to join the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (the Mormon church), they hit a wall.
Just days after announcing her engagement, Madison tweeted: “After being rejected from the LDS church because the public association with my family was too much controversy for the Mormon Church. Caleb and I finally after 2 years started dating…I would say God had a plan in that. Caleb is a devout Christian and we are not a part, nor will we be, of the LDS (Mormon) church.” Who will officiate their wedding remains a mystery. Sister Wives airs Sundays at 9pm on TLC.
