Sister Wives is a show that is no stranger to controversy, having made headlines several times in the 10 years it has been on air. However, recent seasons have revealed even more drama in the Brown family, with many fans diving deep to find out all they can about the spectacular breakup of Kody and Christine Brown.
Recently, viewers took to the internet to discuss what impact the significant age gap between Kody Brown and his fourth wife Robyn Brown may have had on Christine Brown’s decision to leave a polygamous family.
Sister Wives tells the story of a large polygamous family, led by Kody Brown and his four wives. Brown’s first three marriages, to his wives Meri Brown, Janelle Brown and Christine Brown, all took place off-camera, long before the reality series began airing on television. The cameras captured the moments when Brown decided in 2010 that he was ready to start courting a new, much younger wife, Robyn.
Kody Brown and Robyn Brown married in 2010. As the first new woman to join the family in 16 years, tensions were running high and many fans wondered how the other women really felt about Robyn Brown joining the family. Notably, Robyn Brown is quite a bit younger than Kody Brown’s other wives; she is currently 43 years old, compared to the next youngest wife, Christine Brown, who is 49, reports The Sun. Brown’s other wives, Janelle and Meri Brown, are 52 and 50 respectively.
Sister Wives: Robyn Brown Feels Guilty
At the beginning of November 2021, Christine Brown shared on social media that she and Kody Brown had decided to separate. Although she didn’t reveal the official reason for the split, fans weren’t entirely surprised by the news. The breakup itself will be documented in the current season of the show Sister Wives, but many fans have already speculated that a fling with Robyn Brown contributed to the breakup.
In a recent clip from Sister Wives, Robyn Brown opens up in a confessional, admitting that she feels a lot of guilt over the separation, and crying that her “family is crumbling.”
