Polygamy isn't for everyone.
Just ask Sister Wives' Christine Brown's aunt, Kristyn Decker.
Decker defected from the Latter Day Saints polygamous sect, Apostolic United Brethren, which the Browns - Kody, Christine, Meri, Janelle and Robyn - happen to belong to. According to Radar Online, Decker's father, Owen Allred was once the leader of the sect.
Decker told Radar recently that she doesn't "believe" Christine is happy, and it's showing.
“I call it ‘miserable happiness.’ That truly describes those that were in polygamist marriages and those that left,” Decker said.
“I think they are just miserable and the show started showing it.”
From watching the TLC series, Decker notices a "lack of connection between the women.
“They don’t know where to stand when they’re talking about their relationship with the other women. They don’t get the quality time they want with their husband. Neither do the children. The spousal connection isn’t there."
I'm no expert on the subject, but I can't imagine polygamy makes it easy for a husband and wife to connect when there are at least two other women involved.
"They are happy because they believe they are serving God or their God. But it is miserable happiness," Decker went on.
“I think the Browns are precious people. They are just misled like I was.
"They were born and raised with it. They are not representing the majority of polygamy.”
Decker didn't elaborate on that last quote, which begs the question "What exactly does the majority of polygamy look like?'
Last year, Meri was caught up in a catfish hoax; she got involved in an online relationship with a woman from Oklahoma who pretended to be a man.
The woman then made threats to Meri, forcing the reality star to come clean on air.
