Who is Mitch from 'Sister Wives'?

Sister Wives is back, and the drama is already beginning to unfold. While tension is rising between Meri Brown, Kody Brown and the rest of the wives, there is a silver lining to all the chaos: Aspyn Brown is getting married.

Well, she's technically already married, but the season 13 opener introduced her fiancé, Mitch Thompson. Because the show is a little behind what's going on in real life, fans are still only learning about Mitch, 27, and Aspyn's, 23, relationship, including their wedding plans.

Still, it's easy to see how the Brown, despite their internal complications, is already taken with him. Aspyn, who is the daughter of Kody and his third wife Christine, married Mitch on June 18, 2018.

So who is Mitch Thompson? Here's everything you need to know about Aspyn Brown's husband.

1. He's a longtime friend of the family.

A source told TLC that Mitch is a "longtime friend of the Sister Wives family." He grew up in both Seattle, where he also proposed to Aspyn, and the Utah Valley.

"We’ve been dating for a long time, and so I just kind of knew that marriage was the next step,” he said in an interview with TLC after the proposal.

“When Mitch asked me to marry him, I was super excited, very happy to be engaged to him," Aspyn said at the time. "I was expecting it a little bit, but it was all perfect,” Aspyn added. “Right now, I’m most looking forward to the wedding itself.”

The couple got married in Utah last year on top of a mountain in an untraditional wedding party that included 10 flower girls. Kody’s fourth wife, Robyn, tweeted how wonderful the wedding was later that evening. 

“Such a sweet experience! These two were absolutely made for each other. I love you Aspyn and Mitch!”

2. He works as a carpenter. 

Us Weekly reported that he actually built the arch that they exchanged their vows and became husband and wife under. 

How sweet! 

In addition to his carpentry skills, Mitch can also cook (Aspyn says his claim to chef fame is his meatloaf), and ride a unicycle. 

3. He's Scottish. 

Mitch is Scottish. He shows he's proud of his heritage by donning kilts.

And of course it came as no surprise that their wedding was Scottish-themed. Both Mitch and Kody wore kilts and the bride wore a beaded, satin gown.

4. His sister is on another TLC show. 

Thompson’s oldest sister, Vanessa Alldredge, is on the TLC show Seeking Sister Wife with her husband Jeff. She posted a photo from the wedding with a sweet caption.

“We grabbed a quick picture of the family today. And no Jeff is not taller than me! But we were standing on an incline plus I’m in heels! We had a beautiful day!” she wrote. “Congratulations to my baby brother on his big day!”

Seeking Sister Wife is a TLC show that focuses on the journeys of three different families in different phases of their polygamous relationships, which include the men looking for, dating and adding a new wife into their family structure. 

5. He's not a polygamist. 

Despite both Mitch and Aspyn coming from polygamous families, it looks like they're going to have a monogamous marriage. 

6. They met at church. 

The Thompson and the Brown families both attend the same church, the Apostolic United Brethren Church (known as AUB), which is how Aspyn and Mitch first came to meet each other. 

“We were raised in the same church group, and I had a little crush on him,” Aspyn said. “We went different directions until a rally some of my family attended in Utah, where we both happened to be. My dad’s brother asked what ever happened between us, which was nothing, because neither of us did anything about it. So I decided to call him.”

The church is often referred to as "The Work," "The Priesthood," of "The Group." It was also featured in TLC's canceled series My Five Wives. The show was canceled after producers learned that Lynn Thompson, an AUB leader, sexually abused his daughter, Rosemary, when she 12. She wrote about the abuse on her blog. 

"I am not coming forward to get back at my dad or anyone. I have no vendetta against my parents or the group that I grew up in. I still love the good things about my parents and the AUB,” Rosemary said. “This is about advocating for all those girls, boys and women who, either now or in the future, could be taken advantage of by the cloak of silence under which molesters hide.”

Thankfully, Aspyn and Mitch have had a much more positive experience with AUB.
