Sister Wives stars Kody and Robyn got things out in the open on their first date, including sharing some embarrassing things. From what Kody remembers of their first time alone, they even aired some mildly dirty laundry. But unlike other couples in the mainstream population, a lot went into making this date happen. This is especially true for Kody Brown.
The first date of this Sister Wives couple was a formal step that led to a marriage. Even before it could happen, several people had to give their consent. This was true for his other wives as well as for Robyn’s father. So in order to court, the couple had to put their ducks in a row with different people.
The Sister Wives patriarch courted Robyn. But he did so with the goal of marrying her in the near future. Robyn Brown had already met and spent time with the three wives of Kody Brown and his offspring. This happened even before the courtship stage came into play.
So Kody’s three fellow wives gave their blessing. Then Robyn Brown’s father gave the green light, so Kody Brown got up to go. The courtship would allow Kody and his next wife, Robyn Brown, to be alone for the first time.
Sister Wives: Time Is Of the Essence
It seems that courting within a multiple marriage can get a little messy if it is not done properly. This is something the Sister Wives viewers witnessed early on when the series was first rolled out. A premarital kiss caused quite a stir.
At that time Robyn may have courted her future husband, but at the same time she is dating a married man. So the rules dictate that talking is fine, but it’s basically hands-off.
Since wives were waiting at home while Robyn knew her future husband “Sister Wives”, time was of the essence. They didn’t have the luxury of a long date period. But their first date was also the first time they were alone for a long time.
