Sister Wives Recap: So Much Jealousy!

by at . Comments

"Sometimes, I don't like this."

Pretty much. Being married to one woman is hard enough. Imagine four! Or think about sharing your husband with three other women. Not what we signed up for ...

Only for Kody Brown and his quartet of spouses, they did sign up for it. This is what they do, and like all of us, their lives feature drama and tension beneath the surface.

Unlike all of us, there's a TLC show devoted to the Browns ...

Robyn, Meri, Janelle, Christine Brown

So what went down last night? While Kody was excited to announce the sex of Robyn's baby, he reflected on the problems he faced with his first three marriages.

Marriages that are still going on, of course.

Christine, with whom he's currently having serious marital discord, expressed frustration with the family's new Las Vegas living situation. It's been an adjustment.

She is lonely. She feels Kody coddles Robyn, although she adores Kody and Robyn. It's just that he leaves for four days at a time, and frankly that blows (our words).

The Brown Bomber muses that "jealousy creeps in when one wife says in her mind 'he loves her more than me.'" Dude, when ya got four of 'em, that's inevitable.

In spite of all that, Kody is quick to note that "I've loved [Christine] all my life." Ditto first wife Meri, whom he calls his "soul mate," and who's in it for the long haul.

With Janelle, Kody says their strongest bond is their kids. Speaking of, Robyn's unborn child, the family's 17th in all, is totes going to be a ... boy baby! NICE!

Sister Wives Picture

When Robyn told the doctor that Kody had four wives and 17 kids, his reaction was just priceless, even though he had to know it was coming, being filmed and all.

His take? "That's, I guess, cool." I guess. Gotta love Nevada, where people could pretty much not give a bleep as long as you're otherwise law-abiding. And paying.

That brings us to Kody's other goal, besides marital stability. Dude isn't made of money, and that is a lot of mouths to feed. So how will he accomplish that task?

By going into business with all four of his wives. Somehow. His initial idea is a family food franchise that is health oriented. The wives? Less than enthusiastic.

Hey, TLC isn't gonna front all their living costs for life. Better figure something out, gang. What did you think of this installment of Sister Wives? Sound off below!

I am so curious about the private side of plural marriage. I can't imagine going to bed at night knowing my husband is "sleeping" with one of the other wives. It's not normal to be ok with that. Don't they wonder if he does the same with them as he does with you. Sorry, it's incredibly personal I know, but I can't help but wonder.

I always wonder if part of his manipulation is that he tells each of the wives that they are his favorite and he will eventually commit to them? Wouldn't doubt it is part of his nightly routine

The family from 19 kids and counting is a world different that these goofs... They actually put 110% into all 19 of their kids and have a great normal monogamous marriage. polygamists are living in total deial of the root problem/reason they "need" all these wives- that being A sex addiction, controlling women, pedophilia fantasies, boredom. Kody is just plain selfish and insensitive, and I beg anyone to disagree with me!

Why should we tolerate a lifestyle that oppresses women and neglects children? It's ridiculous to say "it's none of your business" or "then don't watch the show!" If I see a child being neglected then hell yes I care about that. If I see women being treated as second-class citizens in 2011 then hell yes I care about that. Oh and by the way, yes you ARE paying for their lifestyle. Check the public records-- at least 2 of the wives are on welfare.

Kody is having kids recklessly. I wouldn't have a problem with this lifestyle if he had multiple wives and a reasonable number of kids. The environment and economy is already terrible as it is. People don't need to keep making more people as the last few generations that are holding all of the jobs haven't died off yet. SOMEBODY PLEASE MAKE A LAW AGAINST HAVING TOO MANY KIDS BECAUSE IT'S A DRAIN ON RESOURCES! That, and nobody seems happy. They claim to be happy, but you can tell on their faces that they aren't. Kody needs to get his head out of his butt and pay attention to the women that he already sees. Dude better not get another wife anytime soon. Also, wouldn't it be easier for them to be sisters if they had a joined household? If you all have a problem with my comment, who cares. I'm just stating the reality of this situation. Half of you Christians are just as judgemental as non-religious people.

I would love to see this family split up. It's do dysfunctional and he needed Robin like he needed a hole in his head. These women (except Robin) are so unhappy and it's not only obvious in their words and faces but in the weight they are all gaining. Meri was thin, now she's heavy and Christine and Janelle are huge compared to the first season. I feel bad for the women. Hope they stick up for themselves. Meri is happy she lives on her own..im sure so are others...Nuff said!
