'Sister Wives' Recap: Robyn Worries About Being Asked To Leave The Family!

Mon, March 28, 2011 9:47am EDT by 32 Comments

The Brown family starts to worry about finances, and how they can continue paying for all 21 members of the family!

Sister Wives was all about money this week, and it seems like the Brown family is having as much financial difficulty as every other family in America. There are 21 members of the family, but only three working these days. Yikes.

Kody, Meri and Janelle have become the breadwinners for the family, meaning in a sense that each is almost a single parent supporting a brood of six. Christine is watching the children following the birth of her recent daughter and Robyn is busy looking for work. But she is getting concerned.

The wives seem fine with Robyn helping with the children, but it is clear she and her children are a new and sizable burden on the already strapped family. It seems like taking a new wife at this time may not have been the best idea and Robyn seems concerned her inability to provide may get her the boot.

Furthermore, though the show no doubt provides a salary to the family, it seems like the show may not have been the best idea for the family should any of the adults, namely Meri, lose their job.

Janelle seems to have enough financial knowledge and budget savvy to keep the family above water, especially as Kody seems to be a somewhat foolish spender, but it is clear this family needs another salary — quick.

You need to have your eyes checked. All of these women are nasty looming. You are correct about them being stupid though.

I’m not going to lie , I am addicted to the show “Sister Wives”, as for real life, its the sickest lifestyle I’ve ever seen! Kody is a goober and the most selfish person I have seen. Robin makes me wanna puke, I dont think she attractive at all, she is a lazy, whining , manipulative, attention whore, and worst mom ever!!!! Christine is so phony and only believed in this lifestyle when she was in her comfort zone. Janelle is at least a hard worker but I’m sure she only stays with Kody because she is so over weight and insecure. Lastly theres Meri who is the only legal wife and needs to remind those other three concubines that Kody never was really theirs , He is only married to her ! I actually like Meri shes the only one on there that seems real in her beliefs, and she holds them all together. Robin needs to go, ol herpe lips has destroyed their family….

I am not against polygamy I just have a problem with men who put their own egos over their families needs.
Kody is an idiot and way too into himself to have harmony in a family of this size. His need to draw attention to himself is the very reason that his family had to relocate. Most people don;t have the need to show people the way they live and convvince others their way should be accepted by everyone, why does he?
The law knew who he was and what he was long before the show. They looked the other way untill he made that impossible. aside from that, he can’t afford to be a polygamist and provide all those wives and children a decent life. he was not even born into that life style. he woke up one day and was like… hey, I think I will be a polygamist.

I mthink they have the right to live in any state they want.Kody is only married to one women(Mary).People all over the U.S is having children with out marriage.Look at our movie stars.What makes the Browns so wrong.Leave these happy,normal people alone.Enjoy a real show about a real family,with happy,healthy children that love each other.These people do not drink,fight ,use illegal drugs or exploit children.I love this show and ,Thank you Brown family for sharing your life with me.

Even though I don’t believe in polygamy, I do enjoy watching the show. I think it’s a shame that Meri was fired from her job because she is a sister wife. She is actually the only wife legally married (in the eyes of the law) to Kody. I think they should persue legal action because it sounds like a case of discrimination and that is against the law. From what I see on the show, Kody genuinly cares for all of them and the children all seem to be happy and well cared for.

First of all, they are not all “wives”. Last time I checked, it is illegal to be married to more than one person at a time in this country. It is basically one man with one wife and three mistresses. These women must suffer from low self-esteem it they think it is okay to have to share a man with three other women. Would it be okay of one of the women found another man she wanted to be with and brought him into this family? Or is that option only available to Kody? He seems really creepy to me and I don’t know what those women see in him. They seem to do all the work while for him everyday is playtime. He gets to go from bedroom to bedroom and they just wait their turn. It’s a shame those kids are being raised to believe that this lifestyle is ok.

I totally agree-he’s a moocher and a perv. HE gets to drive around in a sports car, doesn’t involve himself in the kid’s lives and thinks he can “bring in” more women-WTF??? And the women they are just DUMB. Pay for something, moron. work for something of value-busy your mind with that instead of how much pussy can i get in one day?

I agree….. adding another mouth to feed… another kid… I didn’t like Robyn to begin with… feel awful for Janelle- who already works her a** off already to support the family….. feel awful for Meri too :-( I know there is sadness as they never had a 2nd child.

As much as I do not care for Kody, I doubt that Las Vegas can claim to be such a “Christian” region. Las Vegas is a gambling town and if I am correct, prosititution is legal. If the adults involved are agreeable to it, polygamy might work for many families, particularly where there is a high rate of single women and very few marriageable men (not in prison, with a job, in good health). As I mentioned, I do not care for Kody at all and feel he is a bit full of himself and rather narcissistic. However, there are many, many fathers who are not involved with feedings, middle of the night baby care, etc. who are still half-way decent men. Some may be outstanding fathers. And if a mother has a well-paid nanny who does all this work, I doubt anyone would criticize her.

I think polygamy works best when the husband and father has total responsibility for financial supporting his wives and children. I don’t there should be a law against it as it is so much better for a woman to have legal protection for herself and her children. If one of the “non-legal” wives got sick, would Kody be considered her legal representative?

What is THE LAW. Everytime I hear someone say that I want to smack them for their ignorance. This country has gotten out of control in making LAWS for it to be a FREE country. How many times are LAWS put in place then changed a week later. Ever gotten a ticket in a 25 and had it become a 35 zone the next week? I think its great that president Obama said that it was not constitutional to NOT allow gay marriages. NO ONE has the right to control anyone else. We all have our own minds and hearts to follow as long as we aren’t murdering someone. America has become more controlled than I want to live with and I’m a pretty “Normal” person by societal “standards”.

Seriously? Rigid? Narrow minded? Sexually uptight? Gee… let’s see… Possibly because it is against the law? You know… the law? Oh, but maybe I am just too rigid, or narrow minded, or sexually uptight? What a joke? Hey, I know… let’s all get together and illegally marry each other (more than one man too!… don’t wanna be rigid, narrow minded, or sexually uptight!) and suck off the system… and don’t tell me they aren’t. Oh what a beautiful thing… oh puke!

How funny that these idiots ALL filed for bankruptcy and food stamps (wife #3 while her “husband” was getting money from TLC) then they show the jerk/husband riding on a motorcycle and driving around a Lexus luxury sports car and talking about how they all wanted to do the show to erase any stereotypical views of their chosen lifestyle. I think they moved to Nevada to escape prosecution for welfare fraud.
I don’t care what people do, as long as they pay for it themselves and quit leeching off of taxpayers.

I honestly think that people who are so rigid, narrow minded and sexually uptight that they can’t see the beautiful community/family, the support, the commitment and the high level communication, well, if you can’t see that, you’re just socially backward. Most people who hate this family are just jealous they can’t have that kind of support in their own boring relationships.

Most people who hate them do so because they are completely devoid of intelligence. Their relationship is more boring than most. As far as jealous…what is there to be jealous of? These women are horrid looking and kody is a troll.
