Sister Wives is a strange show, starring Kody Brown, the lucky or perhaps unlucky man with four wives and eighteen children. Now he has one less female in his life.
Christine Brown, was the third of Brown’s 4 wives. Christine spiritually married Kody Brown on March 25, 1994. Having been raised in polygamous household, Christine was more than happy to be one of three wives. The pair share six children together.
Christine took to Instagram on Tuesday, November 2 to announce that after 25 years of marriage, she has decided to leave Kody and her fellow sister wives.
“After more than 25 years together, Kody and I have grown apart and I have made the difficult decision to leave,” she said in the Instagram post.
“We will continue to be a strong presence in each other’s lives as we parent our beautiful children and support our wonderful family. At this time, we ask for your grace and kindness as we navigate through this stage within our family.”
Kody Brown also posted a statement of his own on Instagram following the news of the split. He said that the news brought him great sadness and that the pair will remain committed parents.
Some fans were shocked to see Christine leave the family first. Fans had speculated that Meri, Kody’s first wife would be the first to leave the clan. As Meri was seen slowly distancing herself from the 28-member-family over the course of the last few seasons.
