Watch out Kody Brown your wife #3, Christine, is fed up with the family situation and says being a sister wife isn’t what she signed up for.

Kody Brown‘s wife #3, Christine, is fed up, and she doesn’t want to take it anymore, she announced on last night’s, Dec. 16, episode.

Christine, who is mother to six of Kody’s 17 children, including toddler Truly, 2, says that she’s sick of leading a separate life from Kody and her three sister wives. “I look at our family, and we’re isolated from each other and we’ve failed. It feels like we’re living our separate lives, and we don’t need each other every day,” she laments.

Two years of living in Las Vegas in four different homes — one for each of Kody’s wives and their children — has created Christine’s intense feelings of isolation.

“My relationship with my sister wives is dwindling,” Christine says sadly. “It’s not as strong as it used to be. We’re not each other’s support system.”

Christine’s Real Reason For Choosing To Be a Sister Wife

Christine reminds Kody and the other wives that “I wanted sister wives more than a husband. I don’t want to raise kids on my own — I don’t reach out, and you don’t reach out for support. I’ve been raising my kids on my own for two years, and I don’t want to do it anymore!” she tells the other adult members of the polygamist family, emphatically.

Poor Christine — she’s at her wit’s end. Especially because she’s been desperately trying to study for her real estate exam after failing it the first time.

The big problem is that she has six children interrupting her at all times, and then also laying on the guilt.

“If I fail one more time, my daughter Ysabel said that ‘you’ll just be studying more and ignoring me again!'” Oy! No wonder Christine is down in the dumps that the sister wife thing just isn’t working the way it’s supposed to. Jeez- we suspected that this sister wife thing wasn’t all it’s cracked up to be.

Christine Feels Like A Loser

She’s also having serious self confidence issues. “Failing the first time (at the real estate exam) was just one of many failures — I don’t need another failure,” she confesses. “Passing the test will be a personal goal — something I personally achieved.”

But here’s the big question: Where has Kody been for the past two years? And where’s he been while Christine’s been struggling to get her real estate license so she can help support the family?

Why hasn’t Christine confided in Kody about her feelings of isolation? Why hasn’t he done anything to bring his sister wives together to help each other?

Kody’s sole focus has been trying to buy four houses together, but his polygamist family needs more than just side by side houses to stay close.

And if Kody really wants to take on four wives, then isn’t it his obligation to make sure that “sister wives” get along?

Kody- Is Sperminating His Biggest Priority?

Or does he really just see that his major role is “sperminating”? After all, he recently told Meri, wife #1 that he will have two more children, whether with her or not.

Seems to me that Kody Brown needs to concentrate on making his four existing marriages work and needs to have close relationships with his existing 17 children, before he marries or impregnates even more!

What do you think HollywoodLifers? Do you agree? Tell me now.
