Sister Wives – Star Christine Brown Walks Away From Kody Brown

In Season 16, fans see that Christine becomes increasingly upset with Kody. In fact, more than once, fans saw her in tears. Actually, back at the end of Season 15, she ran into Meri’s arms crying that she simply “can’t do” marriage with him anymore. The current season picked up from that point, and fans know that things look very bad between them. Well, fans already knew they separated, so the show goes back in time. While fans might hope to see them actually split, there may not be enough time for them to find out all the details, like how the separation actually happened.

As tension between the Sister Wives couple spirals, many fans take to social media and congratulate Christine for taking the plunge and kicking Kody to the curb. However, she said that she went through some difficult times. After all, they were spiritually married for 26 years and produced six children. Obviously, she stays in touch with Kody as they still raise Truely. But, her grandfather founded the Apostolic United Brethren church and her parents were also polygamists. TLC fans sometimes think that the only reason Meri stays with Kody is that her religious family might disown her if she leaves him. Religion can be very tricky.

Sister Wives – Does Kodyrown’s Church Allow Spiritual Divorce?

In November, The U.S Sun reported that Kody Brown belongs to a sect of “the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints (FLDS), or Mormon religion.” That’s an important distinction, as the various faiths have slightly different ideas about life. Actually, the Latter-Day Saints don’t actively promote polygamy. However, Paedon Brown, Christine’s son talked about divorce in his Instagram Stories recently. He told a fan, “You can marry through the church and you can leave through the church as well.” So, Katie Joy of Without A Crystal Ball suggested that they possibly divorced through their temple.

One Sister Wives fan wrote, “In LDS one can get a temple divorce if there was a temple marriage. If you weren’t married in the temple the couple isn’t sealed for time and eternity so a temple divorce is moot.” However, another person reminded them that “they are not LDS. They are FLDS. There can be multiple temple marriages in FLDS- they just aren’t legal marriages.” Then, another fan noted: “Aren’t they fundamentalist Mormons? If so women can only be sealed to 2 men but men to 7 women. So there’s a ceremony through the church to “unseal” a person.”
