Sister Wives’ Robyn Brown has been urging Kody’s other wives to mend their relationships, despite their crumbling marriages. But why is she so keen to keep the polygamous dream alive? Fans have a few theories.
Sister Wives: Robyn’s Pleas for a United Family
The television show Sister Wives has long been a platform for understanding the complexities of polygamous relationships, and recently it’s been showcasing the fractured marriage dynamics within the Brown family. Fans know that Robyn Brown and Kody have shifted toward a de facto monogamous relationship off-screen. However, we continue to witness the deteriorating relationships between Kody and his other wives, Meri and Janelle, on the screen.
A recent clip from the show, shared by TLC, showed Kody discussing the dwindling emotional connection between himself and his other wives. He openly confessed that Robyn is the love of his life, leaving viewers perplexed: Why are Meri and Janelle still in the picture? And more intriguingly, why is Robyn trying so hard to mend these strained relationships?
Sister Wives: Robyn Brown’s Financial Stability
Robyn’s insistence has baffled many Sister Wives viewers, leading to a host of theories being shared in the comments section of the recent Instagram post by TLC. One recurring sentiment seems to be tied to the family’s finances.
“Because they pay for her lifestyle lol,” wrote one viewer, voicing a common suspicion. Another comment concurred, suggesting that the money from the show and perhaps the other wives are key to Robyn’s lifestyle. “It’s all about the money,” summarily wrote a fan.
While not confirmed, this theory is fueled by the fact that Robyn has hired a nanny for her and Kody’s two young children, Solomon and Ariella, despite not working outside the home. This choice has further alienated her from the other wives, particularly Christine, who famously quizzed, “What does the nanny do?” in a past episode.
Christine’s frustration is understandable. In the early years of the Brown family’s polygamous arrangement—long before Robyn was even part of the picture—Christine, Meri, and Janelle contributed financially and shared childcare responsibilities. Thus, Robyn’s reliance on a nanny has caused some to question her commitment to the collective family dynamic.
Though fans are buzzing with speculation, one thing is clear: Robyn is not giving up on her vision of a united, polygamous family. Whether it’s a longing for the idyllic family she’s always dreamt of or something more materialistic, Robyn Brown remains a compelling figure in this evolving saga of love, marriage, and family dynamics.
