sister wives fans have long theorized that Kody Brown is trying to force his wives, other than Robyn Brown, to leave him. Kody’s son, Paedon Brown, once revealed that he believed Robyn was Kody’s “true love”, despite Kody advocating polygamy for decades. If Kody only wants to be with Robyn, why doesn’t he end his other relationships? Simply put, based on his religious beliefs, he says he can’t.
Kody Brown insists he can’t leave his wives under his religious beliefs
Kody Brown has often spoken about his commitment to polygamy on sister wives. On several occasions, Kody claimed that religiously he was not allowed to leave his marriage, but that his wives could choose to leave if they wished. Is this the case, however?
The Apostolic United Brethren, the religious sect to which the Brown family once belonged, believe in plural marriage. They also consider any marriage, legal or spiritual, as a commitment made for eternity. Followers must adhere to the ordinances of the religion, including that of plural marriage, to enter the afterlife.
Although little is known about the inner workings of AUB, there does not appear to be any public teaching that women can opt out of their marriages while men cannot. Christine Brown, who has decided to end her 28-year marriage to Kody, said the AUB grants spiritual divorces. However, she did not detail the requirements for obtaining a divorce. Christine didn’t go through the church to divorce Kody. The Brown family is no longer associated with the polygamous sect.

In family memories, Become sister wives, Janelle Brown claimed to have left Kody early in their marriage when fighting inside the house reached an all-time high. Kody, however, still hung out with Janelle during the split. She then agreed to return to live with the Brown family.

Kody has been estranged from his first wife, Meri Brown, for years. Meri revealed that she hasn’t had an intimate relationship with Kody in over a decade.
Since moving from Las Vegas to Flagstaff, Kody seems to be spending all his time with his fourth wife.

They think he is trying to get his wives to leave him, so he will look like a victim and not be spiritually penalized for ending his spiritual marriages. The father of 18 has vehemently denied emotionally abandoning his other wives for Robyn. That’s not what fans see, though.
