In the February 16 episode of Sister Wives, “Why Not One House”, Kody asked his four wives to discuss the pros and cons of living together.
While Janelle Brown mentioned the potential for greater community and shared space if they all lived together, some of Kody Brown’s other wives were more concerned about the health of their individual marriages to her husband.
Christine’s main concern was privacy. She admitted that she enjoyed being the queen of her “personal domain”, as she had been in Las Vegas. And since Brown wives have an unspoken rule of not showing physical affection to Kody Brown when they are together, she was concerned that she could only have an intimate marriage with Kody in her bedroom.
Kody Brown claimed it all came down to “jealousy.” The Sister Wives star said his wives were wondering, “How many times do I have to see the other woman’s face?”
Sister Wives: Meri Brown took issue with Kody Brown’s claims on Twitter
Meri Brown, who married Kody Brown when they were both just 19 years old, twittered live during some of the February 16 episode.
She earned thousands of likes from Sister Wives fans when she proclaimed Kody Brown because she claimed that “all” his wives rejected the shared house out of jealousy. “I have to say I can’t speak for all of us, but if Kody says that “all of us” can’t stand to see him with another woman, then he’s so wrong and he shouldn’t speak for me,” she wrote on Twitter.
Kody Brown quoted his first wife and apologized for hinting that all his wives had the same opinion about PDA. “Okay, sorry I ‘generalized again,” he wrote on Twitter. “It’s true that sometimes I accuse them of ‘everything’ that they do something that’s usually just one woman.”
A fan responded that viewers knew Christine Brown was the most important woman who seemed to be struggling with jealousy over Kody’s other three marriages. (Christine Brown also struggled the most when Robyn came into the family, because she was pregnant with her last child, Truely, when Robyn and Kody were courting).
“Christine Brown has shown more moments in recent years of longing for monogamy, which makes me sad for her,” the Twitter user wrote in response to Meri’s tweet. “She’s in a difficult position right now, because there’s no way to talk to Kody, and she’s obviously very much in love with him and wouldn’t want another man”.
