Sister Wives is a hit reality television series that follows the lives of a polygamist named Kody Brown, his four wives Meri Brown, Janelle Brown, Christine Brown, and Robyn Brown, and their combined family of 18 children. Because polygamy is illegal, viewers were made aware, since the show’s debut on TLC in 2010, that Kody was only legally married to one woman and spiritually married to the others. 

In the beginning, Kody was legally married to Meri. The pair’s marriage lasted from 1990 to 2014. Throughout Kody and Meri’s union, he spiritually married Janelle in 1993 and Christine in 1994. Kody’s marriage to Meri would ultimately end in 2014 after deciding to legally tie the knot with Robyn in an attempt to adopt the three children she had from a previous relationship. 

The show has been making headlines, as of late, because of Kody’s breakups with his wives Christine, Janelle, and Meri. Kody and Christine announced their separation in 2021, while the split with Janelle was shared on Dec. 11 during the Sister Wives: One on One special. Meri shared in an upcoming episode of the Sister Wives special, scheduled to premiere on Dec. 18 that Kody ended their spiritual marriage.
