Looking to the future. sister women star Christine Brown has been open about the process of moving forward after her divorce from husband Kody Brown.
“I think what’s healthy for me and for our family is for me to leave,” the mother of six confessed on a September 2022 episode of sister women. “I thought it was okay to be sad. I think I was much sadder than I thought. I tried to be happy as much as possible and I certainly still found joy in things. Plural marriage is difficult.”
Christine and Kody, who were spiritually married in 1994, announced in November 2021 that they had stopped for good. “After more than 25 years together, Kody and I have grown apart and have made the difficult decision to leave,” she wrote via Instagram shortly after moving back to Utah while the rest of the family stayed in Arizona. “We will continue to be a strong presence in each other’s lives as we raise our beautiful children and support our wonderful family. At this time, we ask for your grace and kindness as we navigate this phase within our family.”
The Cooking with Just Christine star — who shares son Paedon and daughters Aspyn, Mykelti, Gwendlyn, Ysabel and Truely, with Kody — later began to feel guilty about leaving plural marriage. Wyoming resident was previously legally married to Meri Brown from 1990 to 2014. He tied the knot with Robyn Brown and remains spiritually married to Janelle Brown.
“I’m like, ‘Am I super selfish?’ I change the whole dynamic of a huge family with so many people,” admitted Christine during the Sister Wives: One on One tell-all special in February 2022. “Is it just selfish? Is that what it is? I just decided that I should live my life for myself too. I was not present. I wasn’t happy. It just didn’t work anymore.”
Kody, for his part, explained that he was struggling with the aftermath of Christine’s decision to leave. “I love her and I, uh… I don’t know what to do because I’m sad, but I’m still mad,” he said at the time. “I will now take the sadness to be out of the anger phase.”
That same month, their son Paedon told: Us Weekly that Christine made the right choice. “Mom is happier now,” he told exclusively U.S in February 2022. “She is now minutes away from her two oldest daughters. And eventually, in the future, maybe more children will move there.”
