There were no wild celebrations by the polygamous family that stars in the TLC reality TV show "Sister Wives" when a federal judge in Utah struck down key parts of the state's polygamy laws.

Kody Brown and his four wives tell The Associated Press they felt humbled and cried last month when they heard of the ruling. The judge's decision marked a legal victory for the Browns, who brought the lawsuit against Utah in July 2011 after they had fled the state for Las Vegas under the threat of prosecution.

They say the ruling doesn't erase the pain of the sacrifices they made by leaving their home state of Utah, which they hope to return to someday.

The Utah attorney general's office hasn't decided if they will appeal the ruling.
