Christine Brown’s move to Utah comes on the October 30 episode of Sister Womenand Mary Brown and Robyn Brown was admittedly still shaken by her decision. “I’m really frustrated,” Meri admitted to Robyn when the two ladies met to discuss their family situation (this episode was filmed over a year ago, in the late summer of 2021). Christine has just recently informed her sisters-in-law of her decision to divorce Cody Brown and move away from the family, but the news hasn’t completely sunk in yet.
“It probably doesn’t affect us because we’re not part of their relationship, but it’s bullcrap,” Robyn insisted. “It’s so crazy to sit there and watch this big bomb go off in my family.” Robyn and Meri were upset that Kody didn’t fight harder to save his marriage to Christine. However, they were also furious that Christine was leaving they, as well as Kody. “I feel betrayed,” Meri explained. “It just makes me think it’s been a lie all these years. She always said how much she wanted the sister wives.”
In a confession session, Meri became emotional when discussing Christine’s decision. “I felt that Christine was more than a sister wife,” she admitted. “I felt like she was a friend for many years. We believe this is the family structure for us and now all of a sudden everyone changes their minds just because it was difficult?” She told Robyn that she was taking Christine’s decision “personally”, but she wasn’t even ready to cry about it because she was still so “pissed off”.
Meri and Kody were in a difficult situation they relationship for years, but Meri never considered leaving the family. However, Christine made Robyn worry that Meri could be next. “Stay there with me,” she begged. “We have to rebuild. What I love about what you do is that you don’t just make it about you and him – you make it about everyone else too. It’s not just Kody that [Christine] go away.”
Meanwhile, Christine shed another layer of her relationship with Kody by selling the bedroom set from the home they shared in Arizona. “I don’t want to bring anything into my next home that could bring up painful memories with Kody,” she explained. “He was in my space when we lived together in my bedroom, was toxic. I’m not taking that poison with me.” As for her future love life, Christine added: “Starting a new relationship at 49? I hope. I hope I can find love again and be in a relationship with someone who loves me and wants to be married to me and attracted to me. I don’t know. But what I do know is that I’d rather be alone and love myself than be with someone who doesn’t love me.”
