“Sister Wives” episode on Sunday night is saying one thing, but demonstrating the total opposite. Kody Brown is one of the biggest offenders of contradicting stories on this reality show. Kody’s first three wives are still feeling the side effects from the addition of his newest, youngest and prettiest wife, Robyn. The polygamist lifestyle didn’t look too hard on the other wives until Robyn joined the family and became pregnant. Now one wife is openly expressing her unhappiness, according to Dead Bolt.
Jealousy is not supposed to exist in this lifestyle, but it is running rampant in the Kody Brown households. Christina, Kody’s third wife, is even reevaluating the situation and is not sure if this marriage is working for her anymore. This adds confusion to the message that polygamy, although not a common lifestyle, it is not necessarily a bad one. It looks like it is only Kody Brown who reaps the overall benefits of having a harem of wives.
Money is tight and the wives are stretching the food allowance, but Kody’s first three wives have each gained a massive amount of weight, so it doesn’t look like food is a hard to get commodity in the households of Kody’s wives. In just one season the weight gain on all three is very noticeable. Also if money is so tight, how can Kody afford to jot around in a fancy new sports car that seats only two people in a family of 21, soon to be 22?
Kody says he loves his wives all the same, but from the outsiders looking in, right now Robyn is looking like his favorite wife by far. He is like a kid in a candy store with her, as she is his first new woman in 16 years, since Christina joined the family. The honeymoon for these two has lasted a long time. Maybe with her new pregnancy things will die down. One of the other sister wives expresses that she thinks Kody is catering to Robyn. The situation is not an easy lifestyle for the first three wives anymore it appears, but Kody still sings the multi-wives lifestyle praises!
Everyone is complaining about money, but it doesn’t look like it is a family of go-getters when it is time to get out and look for a job. They say they are looking, but to find a job today is a full time job in itself. The people who need to find work in this family should be out pounding the pavement eight hours a day, five days a week. Kody and two of his wives are going into real estate , and chances are Kody will get all the credit with his two wives as co-workers doing all the work.
Kody does not do much as far as household chores, the wives pitch in and if Kody joins them for a project, he usually oversees the operation without getting too physical. The wives seem to take care of all Kody’s needs and when he whines, they cater to him even more. After the show has gone through a few seasons, the plus side of polygamy looks to fall all on the side of Kody Brown and the work, effort and most of the heart ache, falls to the women.
