Sister Wives star Kody Brown hit TLC with three wives, adding another on-camera as his polygamist brood grew. Over the years, however, the dynamics within Kody’s relationships began to fall apart. These days, the former car salesman has gone from four wives to one in less than two years. Keep reading to find out how many sister wives are left and which of his plural marriages have ended. 

Are Kody Brown and Christine Brown Still Together?

Christine Brown was Kody’s third wife but the first of the family patriarch’s wives to leave the group. She announced her split from Kody in November 2021. “After more than 25 years together, Kody and I have grown apart and I have made the difficult decision to leave,” the TLC star wrote in an Instagram statement on November 2. “We will continue to be a strong presence in each other’s lives as we parent our beautiful children and support our wonderful family. At this time, we ask for your grace and kindness as we navigate through this stage within our family,” she added.

Kody and Christine spiritually wed in 1994 and share six children: Aspyn, Mykelti, Paedon, Ysabel, Gwendlyn and Truely. She has since moved from the family’s home base in Arizona to a house outside Salt Lake City, Utah, and revealed on social media that she was enjoying filming in her new digs.

The Cooking with Christine star often voiced her concerns throughout the course of her marriage, referring to herself as the “basement wife” and calling out perceived inequality between the wives. Of her dynamic with her ex now, Christine revealed in the February 20, 2022, episode of Sister Wives, “Kody and I are divorced. We’re completely separate. We’re just gonna be friends, eventually. I just realized I had to make a decision for my heart, and my heart was done being broken. And it felt, well, freeing.”

Are Kody Brown and Janelle Brown Still Together?

The Strive with Janelle founder was Kody’s second wife and she became the second wife to leave. On December 9, 2022, In Touch broke the news that the pair had finally split after months of speculation, with a source exclusively revealing that Janelle had “outgrown” her husband. Kody and Janelle were together for 29 years in their spiritual marriage.

“Janelle is a strong independent woman and realized she can do it on her own,” the insider explained about the Utah native.

Kody confirmed the split on the December 11 finale of Sister Wives season 17, admitting, “I am separated from Janelle, and I am divorced from Christine.”

The pair wed in a 1993 spiritual ceremony and share six children together: Logan, Maddie, Hunter, Garrison, Gabriel and Savanah. Janelle has gone on to share her self-growth on social media since her split, focusing on her impressive weight loss and her role as a mom.

Are Kody Brown and Meri Brown Still Together?

Kody’s first wife, Meri Brown, was the third spouse to confirm her separation from Kody. Revealing that he was the one who pulled the plug on their marriage during the Sister Wives: One on One tell-all, Meri expressed her shock over her husband’s choice.

“It just doesn’t make sense to me that he would be so frustrated with Christine and be like, ‘She just made this decision,’” Meri confessed in the sneak peek clip first obtained by People. “We didn’t consult, we didn’t talk … and then he says, ‘No, I don’t consider myself married to Meri.’ Like, he just made the decision. I’ve never heard him say that to me.”

Meri then watched a clip of Kody admitting that he didn’t consider himself her husband anymore while sitting with tell-all host Sukanya Krishnan. “If she wanted to move on and marry another, she wouldn’t get an argument with me,” the family patriarch said.

Meri and Kody broke their silence on their split on January 10, 2023, by sharing a joint statement to their respective Instagram pages. “In light of a recent unapproved press release, we feel compelled to share our own truth, in our own way, and in our own timing. After more than a decade of working on our relationship in our own unique ways, we have made the decision to permanently terminate our marriage relationship,” the statement read. “During this process we are committed to kindness and respect toward each other and to all members of our family, and we are also committed to the continued healing of any and all relationships within the family so that we can move forward with forgiveness, grace, and love. In the kindness, Meri and Kody.”

In her caption, Meri explained that a TLC clip of the Sister Wives: One on One special made it seem that Kody and Meri’s marriage was already over at the time of filming, they didn’t make the decision until after the tell-all was recorded.

“In the month’s since the taping of those interviews, Kody and I have had many open and honest discussions that have led to our announcement today,” she wrote in the caption of her split statement via Instagram.

The pair legally married in April 1990 but divorced in September 2014 so that Kody could legally marry fourth wife Robyn Brown to adopt her three children, Dayton, Aurora and Breanna, from a previous relationship. Despite the legal divorce in 2014, Kody and Meri remained spiritually wed until his decision that they were no longer husband and wife. They share one child, Leon.

Are Kody Brown and Robyn Brown Still Together?

While Robyn was the last wife to join the polygamous family, she eventually became the last wife standing. Christine, Janelle and Meri had all accused Kody of playing favorites with Robyn throughout their plural marriage, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The first two rebelled against Kody’s strict rules, while he continued to have marital issues with Meri. As a result, he spent the majority of his lockdown time starting in March 2020 with Robyn, much to her consternation.

In a January 2, 2022, episode of the TLC hit, Robyn said she was “worried” that Kody wasn’t seeing his other wives and the current arrangement wasn’t siting well with her.

While discussing the situation with Janelle, Robyn told her with a laugh, “Yeah, could you please figure this out so I can be in a plural family again,” adding, “Oh my gosh, you guys, I’m like, ‘This is what it would be like to be …’ I never signed up for monogamy! I never did.”

“I have been really like, surprised and kind of horrified in ways, because I’ve been like, ‘Wait, I thought we were this cohesive unit,’ and we haven’t been,” Robyn revealed in a confessional. “And it’s been a huge disappointment for me.”

In another segment, Robyn shared how she had multiple opportunities to be in monogamous relationships, but that she had no interest in a one-on-one marriage. “I had proposals before Kody, and I turned them down and I said, ‘No, I want to live plural marriage,’ and here I am. And I’m like, ‘Hey, guys, I want to live plural marriage!’” she explained.

Kody and Robyn spiritually married on May 22, 2010, and make their union legal in 2014.

Despite some bumps in the road, Kody and Robyn appear to still be going strong despite his three other failed marriages. The couple share two children, son Solomon and daughter Ariella, in addition to her three kids whom Kody adopted.

Will Kody Get Remarried?

Now that three out of his four marriages are over– and his fourth wife has made it clear that polygamy is her preferred marital status – fans have already begun asking the question, “Will Kody search for new wives?” While it is unclear if there are any new wives on the horizon for Kody, some viewers are urging him to get back into the dating pool. After all, the show is called Sister Wives for a reason.
