"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 ...
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!
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!
