Legally speaking, he only married to two of his wives -- Robyn and Meri. He divorced Meri, his first legal wife, and married Robyn in 2014 to adopt the latter's kids.

Meanwhile, Janelle and Christine are the results of Kody's spiritual marriages under the Apostolic United Brethren. Interestingly, reports suggest that Kody and Christine are more than a married couple -- they are cousins.
