Kody Brown, the star of the reality show Sister Wives, may return to having multiple partners despite currently being in a monogamous relationship with his wife, Robyn. This is due to his religious beliefs and past experiences with polygamy. Kody’s faith and religious upbringing make it difficult for him to have a stable, exclusive relationship with Robyn, as he believes that God wants him to “multiply” and expand his family. He sees plural marriage as a higher calling and feels like a sinner if he were to give up on his ideals and continue in a monogamous relationship.
Kody, who gained fame in 2010 when he debuted on Sister Wives, was originally married to Meri, Janelle, and Christine Brown, and was looking to bring in Robyn as a fourth wife. The Mormon religion, specifically the Apostolic United Brethren, allowed him to have multiple partners and build families with each one. However, over the past few years, Kody’s relationships with his wives have deteriorated, with each one leaving him one after the other. In 2021, Christine split from Kody due to favoritism, and Janelle and Meri left him a year later.
Despite his previous failed relationships, Kody entered into a monogamous marriage with Robyn. However, it is unlikely that he will stay in a one-on-one relationship for long. His faith and years of practicing his religion may prevent him from fully embracing monogamy. He may feel like a traitor if he were to give up polygamy. Kody has also expressed that he cannot relate to monogamous husbands, indicating that he may be too brainwashed by his religion to have a stable, exclusive relationship with Robyn.
A major reason why Kody may be tempted to return to having multiple partners is his belief that God wants him to “multiply.” He already has 18 children with his four partners, and his religion encourages him to continue expanding his family. According to Kody, “the gospel” tells him and his family to flourish, and this is how God has intended them to live. Given his strong faith, it is possible that he may bring another wife into his family to bear his children and fulfill his religious goals.
Kody’s devotion to his religious beliefs and family goals is evident. He sees plural marriage as a higher calling and expects himself and his partners to be their best selves in order to maintain the plural marriage. He may feel like he has sinned if he were to continue in a monogamous relationship and give up on his ideals. Kody has expressed these sentiments to Christine, telling her that marriage is a call to be better than one is, and plural marriage is an even higher calling.
In conclusion, Kody Brown’s religious beliefs and past experiences with polygamy may lead him to return to having multiple partners, despite currently being in a monogamous relationship with Robyn. His faith and the importance he places on plural marriage make it difficult for him to have a stable, exclusive relationship with Robyn, and he may feel like a sinner if he were to give up on his ideals.
