‘Sister Wives’ Star Mariah Brown Is Engaged to Girlfriend Audrey Kriss: See the Proposal Pics

“We promise not to have pinatas at our wedding, Dad!”

Kody Brown better get his wallet out (again) because there’s about to be another Sister Wives wedding!

On Friday the Brown Family announced that Kody’s daughter (with Wife No. 1 Meri), Mariah, proposed to her long-term girlfriend, Audrey Kriss, last month.

Mariah chose the Women’s March in Washington, D.C.— which was held on January 16— as the place to propose to Audrey. (Fans of the show will remember that Meri and her sister wife Janelle both attended the Women’s March with Mariah and her friends during an episode shown last year.)

“[Audrey and I] had just started dating when we came for the first time two years ago and it was such a special time for us that I wanted to propose there,” Mariah told People.

In an interview with the magazine, Mariah explained how the proposal went down.

“We were in the middle of where everyone was marching and we moved off to the side, and I was trying to get the ring out of my pocket, where it was stuck,” she said. “I just got down on one knee and said some sweet things that neither of us can really remember because we were so caught up in the moment…

“Audrey was really sweet and started crying and I was crying and then I put the ring on her, got up and gave her a kiss and someone around us goes, ‘Did she say yes?’ and she totally hadn’t yet! Then she goes, ‘I do! I do!’ and then realized that was the wrong thing to say and then said, ‘Yes!’” she added.

Forever sounds just about right to me💍

Mariah and Audrey have been together for two years. Audrey was originally introduced as Mariah’s friend on an earlier episode, but later, Mariah came out to her family and revealed that Audrey is her girlfriend. The Brown family has been very supportive of Mariah since she came out.

“My job as a dad is to love and respect and not to judge,” Kody told People at the time Mariah came out. He said he gives Mariah “total acceptance.”

“We’re just happy she’s figured out who she is,” Janelle said. “It’s tremendous when you see a kid do that.”

While it took Mariah’s mom, Meri, a little while to warm up to the idea of Mariah being gay, she has become extremely supportive of Mariah and Audrey’s relationship.

“This mom is a little excited! Love you,” Meri tweeted after the engagement news broke.

Mariah’s other “mom,” Robyn, also expressed her happiness for Mariah and Audrey.

“We are so excited! We love them both so much and they are a wonderful couple,” she tweeted.

In a reaction video posted to TLCme.com, Kody agreed.

“Audrey and Mariah are a perfect match,” a peculiarly-coiffed Kody proclaims. “They’re kind of like, ‘You complete me.’”

“They just bring out the best in each other and make each other the best versions of themselves,” Meri said in the video.

“I’m gonna make this real clear: this wedding will have NO taco bar!”

Mariah and Audrey recently moved to Chicago, where they are going to school. According to TLCme, they plan to finish school before they start planning their wedding.

As ‘Sister Wives’ fans know, the Browns are no strangers to wedding planning. Over the last few seasons, Brown Family daughters Madison and Mykelti have each had their weddings featured on the show. Daughter Aspyn’s wedding will be shown on upcoming episodes of the show this season.

Eldest Brown child Logan is also currently engaged to his longtime girlfriend Michelle Petty. The couple, who got engaged back in September 2017, have yet to announce a wedding date, though.

  1. It all made sense when she announced she was gay. She seemed to disinterested in normal teen girly stuff It must have been hard telling her family that being their religion or maybe not perhaps she knew they had so much love most would accept, especially the non biological parents. It’s an easier pill to swallow when even though your her mom your not her “mother”. I would still love and accept my children also , but it isn’t our religious or moral beliefs so it would take a minute. I would probably have the same reaction as Merri

    Speaking of Merri. What a nice picture of Cody and her they actually look like they are “ in love”. They never talk about that. I don’t think it’s really right. Cody is all puffed up like a peacock walking around all his wives, and having intimate relationships I’m sure with all but Meri. Hardly fair. In monogamy you have to work things out because people do need that intimacy and you work it out or get a divorce but Cody has 3 other wives to go to. Meri has no one to go to unless she cheats. He hugs and kisses and gives little love pats to his other wives, but not Merri. It’s just not right or Heathy, but everyone expects her to be there and do her part and include her in her business deals. No one is sharing love with Merri, she isn’t getting any intimacy and I’m sure the other wives know. I wonder if they made them pose for that pic. They look like an actual couple.

    I’m glad Mariah had no issues with the family though and I hope they stay happy and they don’t don’t act like jerks ergo the first comment where the person has no life at least they were smart enough to know they didn’t have anything to say and kept it at one word.


  2. Well done you two. I have watched your families programme from the beginning and I love it.

    I wish you and your loved ones all the best for the future.

  3. It’s so crazy watching how Mariah has transformed. Aside from her bitterness with Meri (which she does have reason to feel) she seems so much happier now that she’s come out with Audrey. So excited she’s found her person ❤️

    Side note: isn’t it crazy how mariah was the only kid who wanted to be a polygamist? Makes me wonder how many other girls (who’s families totally denounce homosexuality) find it easier to live as a closeted lesbian in a polygamist relationship, bc it takes the pressure off of them in their marriage? Curious 🤔


  4. Ooooh……how sweet! I love them as a couple!

    Also, THIS is how a religious family supports a gay family member. Mariah is lucky to have such an amazing family support behind her.
