The Browns of Sister Wives have always said they agreed to do a reality show to "normalize" polygamy. But after eight years on the air, fans appear more confused about it than anything. Kody Brown's relationship with his four wives is rife with conflicts, jealousy, and even a catfishing scandal. Although Kody says he spends time with each of his wives, who he has collectively 18 children with, his chemistry with each woman is a little different — and even fans have noticed.
"Kody is slowly getting rid of Meri," a fan tweeted. "Janelle and Christine are next. He obviously only cares about Robyn." Viewers have also noticed that the "roles" within the family are shifting and new alliances are being formed. "Christine and Robyn are the true sister wives and Kody is most invested in them," another fan tweeted. "Janelle is the business marriage even though they had a lot of kids but Janelle isn't very motherly imo. Meri doesn't fit in this at all." Needless to say, the web of relationships within the Browns' "plural marriage" are…complicated. Below, a complete breakdown of everyone's relationship with each other.
