Sister Wives: Kody the Idiot Divorces Meri to Marry Robyn

Recommended Posts

Eternalbluepearl

Sister wives is back and I watched Sunday's episode. Oh my goodness was Kody being a jerk to Christine. Christine didn't want Kody to set up a get together with an old friend while the Brown's were on a family RV trip. This old friend had offended Christine by texting Kody and saying he should divorce 3 of his wives and come back to the old church. Kody could not have cared less about Christine's feelings and the whole episode was uncomfortable to watch. He really comes off as hating Christine. Yikes!

i feel really sorry for christine. iirc, she's the one who - at least at the beginning of the series - was really into the poly life and devoted to the faith and the lifestyle of being a sister wife, i'd say even more so than any of the other wives. i really hope she finds happiness in her life. i hope all of them do.

I think Kody likes Kody and whoever is making Kody atm is who Kody likes.

Therefore, I do not like Kody at all.

I have watched the show from the beginning and his clear preference for certain wives is just becoming ridiculous. They aren't a good endorsement for polygamy.

So the SW trainwreck is back, huh? I always felt sorry for whatshername? Janelle? The one who actually went to work, and who actually seemed to care about her children's feelings, and who supported the cult clan when Kody wasn't. I always wished she would see the light and leave and find a guy who appreciated her as a partner.

But then that @$$hat married the sexy brunette who had to one-up every one else and bought herself back into the fustercluck by offering her uterus to the master wife Meri, right? And then KB dragged them all over the country because the state of Utah got wind of their polyamorous clique, didn't he?

What's the status quo? :shifty-kitty:

Yeah, Janelle was the only working wife (I mean, aside from My Sister Wife's Closet :roll: ) and seems to always be the voice of reason. IIRC, she was the only one who didn't think a cool million worth of brand new houses was a good idea. I had to stop watching after the whole debacle with Meri's kid wanting to go to an expensive, out of state private college and she and Meri manipulated and cried until she got to go. Never mind the fact that they have eleventy other children that they plan on sending to school. It was too hard on my blood pressure. I don't know how they even put on the facade that they're all "in this together" after that bullshit.

I can't get over the fact that they just cannot internalize that there isn't a market for for this Sister Wife's Closet situation.

I mean. Next to nobody wants to wear a piece of jewelry advocating your polygamy mess, especially when we see how poorly it's playing out on national TV. They're getting hits because we want to see what it looks like, but ain't nobody buying that. Endorsing other products is the smartest move they could make at this point, and yet...

Am I the only one who can't stand Meri? If there's another perspective on her whining and tantrum-throwing then please please share. I know girlfriend was dealt a hard blow with the fertility issues, and I am hoping that getting an additional degree will mean she can do some work for the family herself, but I was over her when the wet bar happened, and long before that.

You think Robyn is SEXY? I think she looks like a dried out Dust Bowl farmwife who belongs in WPA photos from the Depression.

I had the opposite reaction. Christine seemed to be the only wife to have an issue with what Kody's friend said. Kody took it is a joke, and also mentioned that he had had other people in their families make similar comments, but has been able to move past it. Every other wife had no issue with meeting up with this guy. I thought Christine was just being very immature. She may not like him that much, but at most they were going to spend a few hours together going boating.

Wait wait also...they're selling an engraved ring that reads "sisterwife" for $82.

Totally with you on that. It's pretty obvious that she doesn't like any of the other wives and their children except for maybe Robyn since she's very busy buttering Meri up in order to climb up on the likeability scale.

They all are SO, SO unhappy and the kids are mostly like "Polygamy suuuucks :shifty-kitty: ". If they were honest to each other they'd have to confess that their system failed and that they are failing their kids if they continue like that.

Best would probably be Kody would divorce his first three wives and grant them new partners who really appreciate them and live his life with Robyn, the only wife he actually seems to be attracted to.

I'm not one to pretent I know who's into whom or who doesn't like whom but I always felt it was so obvious with Kody because he can be so upfront about his feelings and be so blunt and hurtful, my gut reaction is to slap his face.

He and Meri are so full of themselves, it really hurts and they're equally bitchy and want to be the center of attention. He obviously isn't all that much into Janelle and I seem to remember he gave her a hard time about her weight, which is just a shit ass thing to do. He couldn't be more disrespectful towards Christine who seems to be very tender-hearted and easily upset. He's being a douche but treats her like a recalcitrant kid when she's hurt because she knows she's the least preferred wife and she'll always feel like the last member of the chain. Like I said, they're all unhappy.

What an idiot he is and what twisted belief he must have if he thinks this is what pleases his God.

I'm watching the episode right now because I haven't watched SW in ages but I feel the wives are much more considerate about each other's feelings than Kody is about the feelings of any one of them. Sadly. :( Janelle was very honest about sometimes not understanding what goes on in Christines head but she's mature enought to know and understand why Christine acts a certain way.

ETA:

No. But I think Kody does.

I was late to the Sister Wives show but started following and watching about a year ago. There's a great blog, cynicaljinxwelcome.blogspot. com if you want more snark on this show. Also previously.tv has a good thread about it.

I couldn't decide this week who was more annoying between Kody and Christine. OTOH he should have tried harder to soothe her feelings, even if he didn't entirely agree with her. OTOH, she took what was probably either a joke line or at most not meant to be a personal dig as a personal attack.

Kody is so squicky I don't know how he keeps one wife, let alone 4.

meri is the first wife, so i'm sure the shift in dynamics after the subsequent marriages was most difficult for her, as she's the only wife to have had totally alone time with kody. and especially after her fertility issues came up, and the other wives kept having children, i think it stung her more and more and she got a little bitter about it, and then redirected that at everyone else, including kody. i haven't watched anything after the big move (i think i watched an episode or two after that, but nothing more) but the vibe i got from her from what i watched was that she was very unhappy and bitter.

her position in the picture on their sister wife's closet website is very telling, to me. kody is in the middle, flanked on either side by his wives, of course, but meri is the only wife who has her back to him and the others. even janelle, on the outside of the group on the other side, faces toward the group and kody, so it's not like it was suggested the outside wives stand like that, or else janelle would also be positioned like that. interesting. (of course, it COULD be a shopped picture, with them all individually put in there, but with the way robyn and christine have their hands on kody, it doesn't seem like it to me, it seems like a group shot taken at the same time.)

I do not understand what any of those women saw in Kody to begin with. He's a J-E-R-K.

He's so full of himself it hurts. I think all of those wives have issues with insecurities and desperately needed approval. Meri's not as annoying if you think of her as Meri not as a sister wife whose life didn't play out the way she planned. Janelle and Christine, the latter despite her polygamous upbringing (which seems to have traumatized her seriously), both seem like really sweet and caring people who'd deserve much better than that ass of a husband.

Robyn must have been desperate for approval as well, I can't think of any other reason why one would marry into that circus.

Yeah, and just think, that fine specimen of manhood has 14 kiddos. Meanwhile, perfectly decent guys have zero. Sometimes I really believe idiocracy is going to happen.

Their kids can't get away fast enough once they graduate from HS. :whistle: Kody is a lazy bum. Jan & Chris should take their kids and run so fast.

I did think Christine was overreacting, but wow Kody was horrible.

I like Janelle, but we've gone over the whole "Meri was mean to Janelle" thing several times already. It was 20 years ago, Meri has apologized, and she needs to let it go.

I'd love to see a poly show with multiple husbands. Or multiple wives AND multiple husbands.

It is already happening. In my family of many many far too many cousins (I'm the oldest of 43 known cousins, we know some of my mom's brothers have kids we don't know about, but not how many), and the few of us who are in working families and who finished at least high school have no more than 2 kids.

The rest of my cousins who are 14 and over all have dropped out of school and have multiple kids, and all of them, ALL of them, are using welfare as their long-term plan to raise kids, which is why I'm very much against people who are already on cash-welfare deciding to have more kids. If you want to become self-sufficient, having more kids isn't the way to do it. I kid you not, ALL of my cousins who are 14 and over who don't work and haven't finished high school have kids. An aunt of mine was a grandma before the ripe age of 30, and was excited because it means her daughter's path in life is paid. It's hard to favor any social aid when I've seen the abuses of it in my family, but I just can't find it in myself to be against the families who are making a genuine effort to support themselves and only use aid when necessary to make up the shortfalls.

My family is like the beginning of that movie. The responsible people waiting until the right time when they can provide a stable life for kids having 2 or 1 or 0, while that moron keeps having more kids with lots of baby-parents while not working and barely being able to string a thought together. It's so disheartening that I had to cut off all contact with that side of the family. I was finding myself favoring nixing all aid to everyone because I was always so angry watching how they abused and played the system. I was very happy when I found out the feds are after an aunt of mine for welfare fraud, and that a few of my cousins were cut off from getting more aid last year, which is forcing them to try getting jobs in a town with so few willing workers that stores keep closing down from a lack of employees.

Re: abuse of welfare

That's another thing that bothers me about the Browns. The nonlegal wives (Meri is the only legal wife) almost certainly get welfare benefits. The children of those wives will get nice college scholarships and financial aid because on paper, they have unemployed single mothers with multiple children.

Don't even get me started on their numerous bankruptcies.

Nix the religion. I know families where there's 1 wife and some husbands, and a friend of mine just moved into a house as a housemate where the rest of the housemates are married to each other. Not legal marriage, but you know what they mean. 1 of the women had a baby with someone else who was part of the group, but he and they split up and are still on good terms, and it's peaceful for their son. They're all grown-ups, not like the Browns.
