Thanks in part to inaccurate maps featured on Sister Wives, there is a lot of confusion and misinformation about the Brown family’s infamous plot of undeveloped land called Coyote Pass. We’ve put together accurate graphs and information gathered from the actual county property records and deeds for the property, which is divided unevenly among four different parcels. Post includes the numbers from before Christine’s departure and after, including a video with additional information.

Since the Brown family has shared their story with the public they have claimed to have a more egalitarian setup in their plural marriage in which the women enjoy a depree of independence even as they all make decisions together. In the past few years, however, the family has fractured beyond repair, which resulted in Christine choosing to divorce Kody and live her life separately.
A few years ago, Kody openly questioned whether or not polygamy was a “failed experiment” that hindered the happiness of the women. Now that Christine has left, Kody has been wounded by this loss of power and is responding by trying to tighten his control over his remaining three wives by declaring their family a “patriarchy” and demanding compliance to his will.
Sister Wives is having a resurgence in popularity, with more new fans watching than ever before. New to Sister Wives or just need a quick refresher? Here is a rundown of everything that’s happened with the Brown’s so far.
Fresh off the heels of Christine telling Kody she no longer wants to be with him and plans to move out of state, his own son Garrison tells Kody he’s also done with him in Season 17, Episode 2 Sister Wives teaser released today. Is Garrison’s mom Janelle done with Kody too?
The Brown family never seems to settle down. Here’s the definitive guide of every time the Sister Wives have moved, where they’ve gone, and where they are going next.
Sister Wives viewers assumed Christine Brown’s strained relationships with her sister wives, Meri, Janelle and Robyn, was a contributing factor to her decision to leave the family. Now it appears she may just have been trying to ditch Kody!
Sister Wives‘s Robyn and Janelle Brown have very different viewpoints when it comes to how hard Christine and Kody tried to save their 25-year marriage. Robyn is angry about Christine leaving, feels it’s a “waste,” and doesn’t think she tried. Meanwhile, Janelle thinks that both Christine and Kody tried so much that she repeated the word “tried” multiple times during the third part of their Season 16 One-on-One interview with Sukanya Krishnan.
Kody Brown seems to no longer be actively participating in the polygamous lifestyle when it comes to love and romance. Though he still may consider himself to be spiritually married to three women at this point, he has expressed that he has no desire for romantic love or any sort of intimate bond with Meri. When he told Christine he no longer wanted intimacy from her, she ultimately decided to leave him. For a while, viewers didn’t know where Kody stood with his second wife Janelle, but he is now making it clear that he is not in love, or “in sync” with her. He has previously revealed that he took “romance” off the table for Janelle, and now she’s saying that they are “good friends” in a committed relationship.
Meri Brown revealed on Part 1 of the Sister Wives One-on-One special that airs tonight (Sunday, January 30, 2021) that she has not had a physical relationship with Kody in over 10 years, which is years before the Catfish scandal. Neither Kody nor Meri have gone into detail about why their relationship first broke apart, but they are both adamant that it was before the Catfish situation. In their 2015 book
Season 16 of Sister Wives ended with the muddled dissolution of Kody and Christine’s 25-year marriage. We were left with Christine declaring that the end of their spiritual marriage was between “her and God,” while Kody is grappling with feelings of relief after finding all of his things packed up in the garage. Something else, however, was left hanging for the viewers. Janelle revealed that her sons Garrison and Gabriel had tested positive for COVID after not feeling well. She and her daughter Savannah were waiting on test results, but the audience got no more updates from Janelle.
One of the many controversies amongst the Sister Wives‘s Brown family playing out on television right now is the fact that in the fall of 2020 Kody Brown wanted to evict his sons Garrison and Gabe Brown from their mother Janelle’s home because he felt they weren’t following his COVID-19 protocols strictly enough. At the time, Kody was living at his other wife Robyn’s house for the past nine months. Garrison was 22 at the time and staying at his mom’s house while he saved money for a down payment on a house in the competitive Flagstaff market. He’s now realized that goal and closed on a $329k 4-bedroom home.
On tonight’s episode of Sister Wives Kody reveals that Christine has an “employee.” He drops this in while talking about how their COVID precautions have an “economic” angle in that some of them have people they work with that could be exposed. This seems to be some sort of retaliation for the fact that Christine outed that he and Robyn had a nanny coming in and out of the home, who Kody called an “employee.” Linking the word “employee” to both situations, especially surrounding COVID protocols, implies that Christine also had someone coming in and out of her home too. It turns out that Christine’s employee does remote work for her MLM businesses and is not a nanny or housekeeper that comes into her home, so it isn’t comparable to Robyn’s employee.
