More non-traditional marriage practices are taking place in the Sister Wives brood.

Details about the relationship of one member of the openly polygamist reality TV family is raising eyebrows.

Kody Brown and wife Janelle’s 19-year-old daughter, Maddie Rose, got engaged back in September, announcing her relationship change to the world via Twitter. But now we are learning that her fiancé, Caleb Brush, is allegedly a lot closer to the Brown family than we first thought.

"We support Maddie’s family with their choice of living plural marriage and they support us with our choice in just marrying each other."

This is the second bombshell to be dropped about the reality TV family, after reports broke earlier that one of Kody’s wives, Meri, confessed to having an emotional affair with a person online who ended up being a catfish.
