Christine Brown Shares the Moment She Realized She No Longer Wanted to Be With Kody Brown

In a tell-all interview with People magazine, Sister Wives star Christine Brown is baring it all. And she is not holding back when opening up about why she decided to leave Kody Brown.

Brown, as you may know, was one of the four women married to Kody. However, Brown, late last year, made the decision to end her relationship with Brown and step out into the world as a single woman.

As she told People, she’s officially done with polygamy and has dedicated herself to monogamy moving forward. And while polygamy can be a hard concept for some people to grasp, it wasn’t the fact that Kody had three other wives that encouraged Christine to leave.

Christine continued to tell People that she left after Kody “broke my little girl’s heart.” During their 26 years together, Christine and Kody welcomed six children into the world; Mykelti Brown, Ysabel Brown, Paedon Brown, Aspyn Brown, Gwendlyn Brown, and Truely Brown.

In 2020, as Christine explained, Ysabel, who was then 19, had to undergo back surgery to correct her scoliosis. The surgery was so intense that she had to travel to New Jersey to meet with the specialist.

Christine believed, that given Ysabel was about to endure major surgery, the trip to New Jersey should be a family affair, meaning Ysabel and Christine wanted Kody to come along. However, as Christine told People, Kody refused. 

His excuse was that he didn’t feel comfortable traveling during the COVID-19 pandemic. “I really find it hard to stay with a guy who I don’t respect. I understood COVID, and why he couldn’t come, but she didn’t. And she still has a really hard time with it.”

Christine continued, “I was there with Ysabel the whole time in New Jersey for the surgery. And I remember them pointing out, like, ‘Are you here alone? Where’s your husband?’ I’m like, ‘Oh, he’s not here.’ And they’re like, ‘Whoa, isn’t that hard?’ And I’m like, ‘No, it’s hard for her.’ It’s hard for Ysabel, but it’s not hard for me.’ It was a good wake-up call. In the end, I would’ve preferred to have him there, of course, because it’s what Ysabel needed. But I didn’t need him anymore.”

This coupled with the lack of trust and intimacy in their marriage and the fact that Christine no longer believed in polygamy is why their decades-long relationship came to end.
