Sister Wives fans will see a lot of Kody Brown’s feelings during tonight’s episode. Apparently, she’s feeling pretty down about the current state of her family. And it’s starting to feel like it’s her fault.
Sister Wives: Kody Blames Himself As a Failure
Getting together with another plural family during tonight’s episode seemed to be medicine that the Brown family really needed. Kody Brown and all of his wives expressed how much they needed to be with other plural families. Families that understood their lifestyle and beliefs.
But they lived in a place where there weren’t many plural families. Similarly, polygamy comes with a lot of legal issues. And it has an embarrassing stigma. So, finding other polygamists to be friends with is not exactly easy to do. Some families are not open about their life choices.
Kody Brown sees his family falling apart around him. He knows his wives don’t exactly get along. He loves the idea of living under the same roof, but he knows his wives would have to get along for it to work.
During tonight’s episode, Kody Brown began to wonder if he was to blame for the state of his family. He wondered if there were injustices within his relationship that he missed. Could he have done things differently to make his family stronger? Could they have been a more functional plural family?
The Dargers are very open about their lifestyle. And they seem to be good friends with the Brown family. Joe Darger admits that he genuinely cares about the Brown family. He wishes they lived closer so they could spend more time together. Collectively, everyone seems to appreciate plural families spending time with other plural families.
Joe reassures Kody Brown that he should not blame himself or think of himself as a failure. He explains that there is no one right way for plural families to live. His family lives under one roof and it works for them. He thinks the pros outweigh the “little cons.” But he also says he would never impose his way of life on someone else. Joe Darger believes Kody Brown and his family are doing the best they can in this stressful situation.
