Kody Brown: You Blew Off Wife #3 Christine's Marriage Concerns

Kody Brown Sister Wives Fight

Kody, when you married wife No. 4 Robyn, it understandably sent Christine into fits of jealousy. But now you’re refusing to repair your relationship with Christine — and that’s irresponsible!

Kody Brown, it’s bad enough that you feel entitled to have multiple wives and 17 kids, featuring them all on your TLC show Sister Wives – which returned May 13 — but if you have taken on the responsibility of “marrying” and keeping four wives happy, you can’t blithely blow off the deep marital concerns of one of your wives, like you did to Christine on the season premiere.

I felt sorry for Christine, the mother of six of your children, including 2-year-old baby Truely. For many years, she was your newest and youngest wife. Who could blame her for being green with envy when, while she was pregnant with YOUR baby, you were romancing and PDA-ing with a younger woman Robyn – who you then married just after Christine gave birth?

Instead of you focusing, as you should have, on the birth of little Truely and lavishing attention on Christine who was coping with her newborn, you took off on a two-month honeymoon with Robyn. It’s a miracle Christine didn’t throw in the towel on the Sister Wives!

On last night’s episode, Christine revealed her marriage to Kody is in a bad way. They aren’t even working on it anymore; It’s at a standstill, and she’s just hoping time will heal it.

Kody finally gave Christine a few minutes to talk. He looked like a school boy who had been misbehaving as he gave her a grin and said, “What are we going to work on? Communication?”

Christine replied to that setback, “It would be a good place to start.” Then when Kody accused her of being afraid to spend time together, she admitted her deepest and loneliest fear:

“I don’t think you want to be with me at all,” she said. It was a real moment of truth. She feels abandoned by you, Kody!

Kody, you claimed you were excited to go to her house to see her, but then there was tension. Hmm… I wonder why? Could it have to do with you bringing another woman into your life as a supplanter?

Christine pointed out, “You can’t wait until the last possible minute and then leave as fast as you can.”

But instead of responding thoughtfully, Kody, you just started making excuses: “We’ve been busy a lot lately.”

Yes, Kody, of course you have been busy, you have four wives to take care of fiscally and emotionally and 17 children. You decided it was God’s mission for you to take that on. But you willingly took it on and now Christine is hurting as any normal woman would who has to share her husband with three other wives — she feels neglected.

“But if we don’t work on our relationship and we just ignore each other and play on our phones when we are together….” Christine replied.

Kody, you couldn’t wait to end that minimal heart to heart! As soon as Christine admitted to play the part in your marital issues, which was big of her, you did your mischievous littly boy jump hypen up thing.

You hopped up, hugged her, kissed her quickly, said “I love you,” and then you just walked off and left her devastated and hanging.

She and her marriage have been royally blown off on national TV.

Gee, Kody, have you ever wondered why all of your wives pooled their money to buy you a high powered gun for Christmas? Could there be a little hostility going on there?

I would love to know where all the money is coming in for all the property and houses..What kind of work does Cody do to to help take care of all the children he produced..What kind of work does Robyn do to contribute to the family..Has she even worked at all since they got married? Are the other wives supporting her and Cody? I’m sorry, but I would through Cody out to the wolves, because that is what I think of him..

All is well and good on t.v. But for real it takes more and Cody….you didn’t expand your life to be part of all your wives and particularly, children. Sorry for them.

Cody acquisition should be a lot. Build the exact house you had in Utah but expand each wife’s area by 500 sq ft….and create a new wing V out the back and leave a larger area to the left as a pool and rec/ area for the children. Remember…you may have to subcontract jobs out separately. If you cannot, check the auth subcontractors to do the jobs needed under separate financing. I am sure that with all checks reeceived by the wives that this can be done uniformally or as a gift.

I thought of this too, but many cities have strict zoning laws that prohibit multi-family homes, etc. I would think they’ve thought of this already. Maybe not. I agree it would be less expensive and would allow for more space for those with more kids.

What alternative did poor Christie have? Not many:

#1) Live off welfare with 6 kids in a mobile home in the desert.
#2) become a sister wife to the only kind of man that will take a woman in her situation: an abusive fundamentalist
that may molest the kids, or even marry 1 of them.

I agree. Christine is in a tough spot. She obviously wants to be loved, but that isn’t going to happen.
IMO, she needs to work on herself–lose the weight and get into shape (It’s hard because by her own admission, she’s always been “chubby”). She’s (IMO) the prettiest of them all facially. She could get a degree if even online. She needs something to build her self-esteem instead of looking to Kody, who is obviously so wrapped up with Robyn and PW’d by Mary that he isn’t inclined to care about what she thinks. I feel bad for her.

Even though I think Mary’s been treating Christine & Janel unfairly lately,I feel sorry 4 her w/her fertitely issues.I’m very gr8ful 2 God 4 blessing me & my hudsband w/3 kids.Only having 1 child that’s almost grown would be sad.Christine & Janelle have blessed Kody w/the other kids that he & Mary wanted.It’s sweet that Robin wants 2 be Mary’s & Kody’s suragate.I wonder why the other wives didn’t give Mary the same offer yrs ago?There’s potential good n everybody.God gave us all indivual souls & a consions 2 know right from wrong,& the ability 2 forgive,give back,& help others n need.Kody & Christine plz read this,call ur minister & other pologamist from Utha’s LDS church & thru God & for ur kids’ sake,work out ur marital problems.My hubby & I have nearly divorced,but were not giving up(18 yrs still married)

Mary’s recent disrespect 4 Janelle & Christine (by telling Christine that she’s @ fault,nothings Kody’s fault,she has 2 change Kody wont.Also that Mary went from being BFF’s w/Janelle & Christine 2 she’s only been close 2 Robin’s reaay rude of Mary,Kody & Robin’s behalf.Since Kody & Robin have a baby 2gether.Kody needs 2 apologize 2 Christine & communicate the problems (off aire w/Christine thru a marriage counsler.I luv the show,but feel sorry for Christine & Janelle & their kids since Robin joined the family.Robin & Mary seem like nice people,as does Kody but they need family & indivual counseling from an LDS minister (by phone daily,since goin back 2 Utha,could get them arrested 4 pologamy).

Meri may be disrespectful, but she knows where her bread & butter comes from. Kody is the provider.Without him none of them could live in that style and only have to put up with him 1x a week, if that.

They are all at fault. The welfare system will take care of everyone and they sit and do nothing. Kody…what a joke. Get a haircut and a job. Robyn is the most unstable of them all. The other 3 call him out. If I were Christine I would cut my ties and have him pay up. BTW everyone, our tax dollars support this circus and it needs to shut down.

If you sincerely beleive that they are on welfare and it need sot shut down, why not contact Las Vegas Family Court?
Others may/may not have. At least you’ll act on your conscience.

Even within what I perceive to be an insane lifestyle there are supposed to be certain rules of behavior. He abandoned Christine. She should have been his entire focus while carrying and delivering Truly. Christine knows whats up and Kody doesn’t want to hear it. I expect this to be chalked up to a “jealousy” issue, but it isn’t. I hope Christine doesn’t let him get away with that cop-out! This scenario has proven to me that their ideal is simply not possible in human nature. A single man cannot maintain intimate love with every woman in his harem.

hes only legally married to the first one. all the others are only thru the church.and these are entitled to welfare benefits for themselves and all their children born out of wedlock. warren jeffs was bilking the government and the state of utah out of 650k$ a yr in benefits along with lots of others in this cult and then the money is spent in this utah town that is owned primarily by the same cult. for a rude awakening you all should read “under the banner of heaven” which is all about this cult from back in the 1800′s and the group that fled to mexico, (mitt romneys) family

I agree.
Some of these “wives” are so brainwashed they will state they don’t know who their child’s father is to protect him from having to pay child support.

I agree with E below. Kody is obviously “in love” with Robyn and only “loves” the other 3. No wonder Christine is jealous. I would be out of my mind–he is having an affair essentially and any wife or girlfriend would feel shoved aside and unattractive. That said, the other 3 wives are beautiful. Robyn is young.
It also bothered me when Meri said that she has a connection with Robyn that she never had with the other 2 wives. Whaaa? I thought they were all besties?

To Aileen….iWhy should Kody stop breeding?….he married these ho’s, these women knew what kind of life they were getting into……Kody should do what most black guys fo….have as many children with 8 different women .( his mistake was marring these pig’s)…don’t pay child support…so the baby’s mama’s can collect welfare….Live life ghetto style!

Maybe some man somewhere is capable of being emotionally available to 4 wives, but Kody Brown isn’t the guy. This family is such a train wreck. I hope the children learn from their parents’ mistakes and run run RUN from this lifestyle.

The LDS church is based on patriarchy (men in charge). Christine knew what she was in for when she married Kody. He is a jerk. I would love to see the ladies turn their feelings outward & get in shape emotionally & physically. The boys need a father & Kody is not there for them either.
He brought all those children into the world & he should be taking care of their every need. I hope they don’t breed anymore.

I just don’t believe that the 4 wives have this deep loving relationship they let on for the cameras. Christine is obviously jealous of Robin. She states this every chance she gets. Janielle just works all the time and leaves the responsibility of her children up to Christine. I gotta give props to Mari though she rules the roost.

Aaaand Kody, when Robyn enters the room, he lights up. He says that he is polygamous, but his heart is definitely not.

So true EVERYONE!!! I lost all respect for Kody when he was hanging over Robins house when Christine was in labor. What the hell was he doing at Robins anyway? He should of been at the Hospital!! Then when he leaves Robins to go to the Hospital he gives Robin this ling kiss. Are you kidding me Kody?? He loves Robin and the hell with the rest. I was starting to fall for this when it fist came out but since Robin came into the picture all there values have changed. Kody would rather be with Robin than any of them. What a sin for the other 3 wifes. I feel so bad for the other wifes and the children. Kody you look like a fool this time around!!

I think Robyn knows that she is Kody’s fav and is just waiting for the other three to give up and move on; then she will have succeeded in having Kody all to herself. She loves that the other wives are jealous of her.
