FLAGSTAFF, ARIZONA: The Brown family from the TLC hit reality show ‘Sister Wives’ has recently been sparking headlines. Kody Brown and his four wives, Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, Robyn Brown, and Christine Brown were married for years and jointly share 18 children. However, it was revealed in late 2021 that Christine had left Kody. And while this news left many fans shocked, another of Kody’s wives, Janelle, recently announced her departure, adding to the shockwave.

While having multiple spouses is not legal in the US, Kody and his wives share a “spiritual marriage,” and the TLC star is only legally bound to one of his wives, Robyn, since 2014. Before that, he was married to Meri, who he divorced for the reality star to “restructure” his family. Cody and Meri remain spiritually married, but in recent years Meri has opened up to her Instagram followers and described her relationship with Kody as “estranged.” The news of Kody’s separation from yet another one of his wives while facing trouble in paradise with the rest, makes many ponder the current whereabouts of the other wives. So here are all the details about Meri, Janelle, Robyn, and Christine’s relationship with Kody Brown and what they are up to these days.

Meri Brown

Kody Brown and Meri Brown have a long, complicated history. They married in 1991 after a whirlwind romance and remained legally married until Kody divorced Meri to wed his fourth wife, Robyn, in 2014. The couple is still allegedly involved in a spiritual marriage after over three decades, but they have grown apart. Christine even allegedly described Kody and Meri as sharing a “loveless marriage” - and in a recent Instagram post, Meri admitted to followers that she’s now beginning to describe her relationship with Kody as “estranged.” Meri appeared heartbroken in the trailer for ‘Sister Wives’ Season 17, as she noted that she’s “not really sure” they have a family anymore. Despite the changes in their relationship, Meri continues searching for the best in people and situations, hoping they see it too, as per Daily Mail.


Janelle Brown

Janelle and Kody’s relationship has certainly had its ups and downs since they first met in 1989 when their parents were friends. Janelle even noted that when Kody first walked into the room, she had that feeling of remembering something she had forgotten, saying, “it was a singular experience.” The pair became stepsiblings when Janelle’s mother and Kody’s father married in 1990 and ultimately became spiritually married in 1993. Over the years, the couple has welcomed six children together, and Janelle has allegedly shared that she still gets jealous when Kody spends time with his other wives. However, in recent months, things have become more strained between the couple, with Kody wanting to become the “head of the household” and allegedly expecting his wives to “conform to patriarchy.” Janelle rejected this, stating that she thought plural marriage was about independence. In a teaser for the upcoming Season 17, it is confirmed that Janelle and Kody have been “separated for several months.” Kody added that Janelle has clarified that she’s enjoying her life without him, as per Hollywoodlife.


Christine Brown

Kody and Christine wed in 1995 and welcomed five daughters and one son together over the years. Christine was initially drawn to having sister wives, but the couple’s relationship started to allegedly unravel as time went on. In 2014, their problems reportedly intensified when Kody and Robyn decided to take their relationship to the next level, causing Christine to become increasingly jealous. In an attempt to fix their marriage, the couple began therapy sessions. But by 2021, Christine had enough and announced that she was moving away from the family. One month later, she confirmed in a shocking Instagram post that she and Kody had decided to part ways after 25 years together. In a ‘Sister Wives’ special, Christine opened up about her decision to leave Kody, saying, “I just realized I had to make a decision for my heart, and my heart was done being broken. And it felt, well, freeing.” Kody admitted that he wanted Christine back during an episode of the show, and while they hope to become friends eventually, they are currently living completely separate lives, as per Daily Mail.


Robyn Brown

When Robyn Brown and Kody first met, she saw it as a new opportunity for love and a fresh beginning. After the couple “spiritually married” each other in 2010, Robyn and Kody welcomed their son Solomon in 2011 and were legally married in 2014. This was so Kody could legally adopt Robyn’s three children from her previous marriage, David, Aurora, and Breanna. The pair also had a daughter, Ariella, born in 2016. It appears that Kody and Robyn’s relationship is stronger than ever. According to a January report from Us Weekly, Kody has only been spending time with Robyn, even amidst rumored relationship issues with Meri and Janelle. It’s been speculated that Kody’s strong bond with Robyn and her three children from her first marriage is the source of the rift between him and Christine, while the latter noted it was “tough” being the cause of the drama. Kody is very close to them and their mother and has allegedly damaged his relationship with the other children. An insider called them a “dream couple,” adding, “She has him wrapped around her finger. They act like they’re still newlyweds. They’re still very much in love.”
