Kody Brown expressed his wish that Christine wouldn’t depart on “Sister Wives.”
His fourth wife Robyn expressed her faith in God’s ability to perform miracles when she declared, “I think God can make miracles happen” in reference to Christine remaining.
Kody acknowledged he was having faith problems and that his message to the world was “dysfunctional” at the moment.
On the most recent episode of TLC’s “Sister Wives,” Christine Brown’s departure from Arizona was drawing near, but Kody Brown and other family members had trouble accepting the news.
Kody told the cameras in a candid interview, “I’m living in a fantasy world where I’m praying that Christine wouldn’t leave,” as he reflected on his daughter Ysabel’s birthday and graduation party, which was likely taped in June 2021 for the show.
He added that he planned to keep up “Some quasi-family relationship” with Christine and that he hoped Ysabel would decide to go to college in Arizona.
“However, Kody is not one to keep his feelings to himself. He’ll be more forthright about his emotions, and I get the impression that he’s really just devastated “Christine said in her own frank interview. “It’s also a little sad. He is probably coming to terms with the fact that he hasn’t spent nearly enough time with Ysabel, despite the fact that the two of them are deeply in love with one another.”
Christine left Kody and moved to Utah with their 12-year-old daughter Truly, as shown on a previous episode of “Sister Spouses” when the former partners broke the news to Kody’s three remaining wives. Kody and Christine butted heads over the fact that Kody had not stopped by to see Ysabel at Christine’s house because the girl had physically gone to school.
Kody has previously stated that Ysabel will “benefit more” from spending her senior year with her pals. He reassured her that “but she’ll be OK.”
Kody Brown‘s fourth wife, Robyn, was also struggling with Christine’s decision to leave Kody and move away from the family, especially when the Browns’ extended Utah-based family gathered for a joyous Ysabel celebration.
“I don’t understand why this isn’t a cause worth fighting for. I don’t get why you wouldn’t want to stick around for this “in a solitary interview she asked the cameras rhetorically.
She continued, “I don’t know, I’m just one of those individuals who hope continually that maybe something would light for someone and they will simply think, ‘Oh, this is worth finding out and hanging around.'”
She claimed she would feel sad seeing her loved ones so happy on that special day. After all, “I think God can make miracles happen,” she said.
However, Kody didn’t look quite as upbeat.
Confession time: “The message that we presented to the public about functional polygamy looks so dysfunctional now,” he stated in his interview.
Christine and Kody made their decision to end their “spiritual marriage” public in November of 2021. Together, they have produced six children: 12-year-old Truly, 19-year-old Ysabel, 20-year-old Gwendolyn, 23-year-old Paedon, 25-year-old Mykelti, and 26-year-old Aspyn.
