Sister Women star Robin Brown taken Christine Brown‘s place not long after she first appeared as wife number four on the TLC series. It looks like she’s thrown a wrench into Christine’s well-oiled machine. After what viewers learned on last Sunday’s show, things became much clearer.
Sister Wives: Robyn Brown a Numbers Gal?
A while ago, Robyn Brown described what other polygamous marriages looked like when she was growing up. She said that in the polygamy community, men usually had two wives.
While some men took three wives, that was usually the maximum. But occasionally a man would take on four wives, which she says is rare.
So when she was offered the number four spot on Kody Brown’s roster, she took it with some apprehension.
She was afraid that the Sister Women The patriarch would probably be spreading himself very thin taking care of four wives and their children. History suggests that it “wasn’t that much of a deterrent for Robyn since she married Kody anyway.
And as fate would have it, her marriage turned into one of monogamy. So those concerns no longer seem to be a factor.
Christine Brown didn’t care about the numbers
Christine Brown also grew up in the polygamy community. So she had her ideas about what she wanted from plural marriage.
When it came time to join the Brown family in spiritual marital bliss, she got exactly what she wanted. Christine didn’t really care what kind of woman she was, as long as she was the last woman.
When she became Kody’s third wife Sister Women family, she thought it would be her. Christine wanted to become the new woman, which in her view brought many special advantages.
The last woman in a family is new and exciting, not to mention that the honeymoon is pretty special too. She came to Kody Brown and his family as wife number three with those thoughts in tow.
Of what Sister Women fans learned this week that it appears Christine once had most of Kody’s attention, much like Robyn Brown does today.
Sister Wives: Bittersweet gifts galore
It sounds like Robyn Brown isn’t Kody Brown’s first favorite wife. From what Christine Brown said, it seems like she got a lot of favoritism from her ex-husband before Robyn came along.
Last Sunday she told a bittersweet story Sister Women episode. One Christmas, before Robyn came over, he had a lot of gifts to give out. When it came time to hand them out, Christine said almost all of the gifts Kody had were for her.
I’m trying to figure out how no matter which one of Kody’s marriages is on the rocks, it’s somehow all about how devastated and crushed Robyn feels about it. I wanted to believe her action, but she is indefensible. #SisterWives pic.twitter.com/9x7n3ilRjm

But at the same time, he had absolutely nothing for Meri Brown. This caused his first wife no end of pain. Apparently Janelle Brown saw the sadness in Meri and had Kody get the gift he left for Meri in her bedroom. Meri said Kody came out and handed her an unwrapped hoodie.
It was a little too late for Meri, who remembered that sad story for the movie Sister Women cameras, just like Christine. Besides giving Christine too many gifts, he also did something he only does for Robyn today. After Robyn joined the family, Christine became very upset about the lack of time he spent with her.
Robyn took over Christine’s house?
It sounded like Kody started spending all his time with Robyn and Christine expressed her dissatisfaction. So Kody spent about 25 days a month with his third wife.
This angered the other three women. But Kody said it made her happy.
So it seems like Christine lost a lot when Robyn joined the family. It sounds like Robyn has taken her place as Kody’s last wife. That’s the place Christine wanted. Wife number three meant nothing to her, what she wanted was to become the last wife in a polygamous family.
That said, it looks like Robyn Brown has turned Christine Brown’s life upside down. In a roundabout way, it sounds like Robyn Brown took Christine Brown’s place in the famous film Sister Women family from the TLC series.
