Kody Brown by Sister Wife fame spent all of season 17 proving that he doesn’t understand the needs of his four wives. Fans of the hit show have been clear on the Brown family patriarch for years, but season 17 showed just how horribly he treated most of his longtime partners. However, Kody seems to be getting meaner and meaner. In his meanest moment yet, he actually wondered if he should have told one of his brides that he “didn’t like her.”
Christine Brown once told Kody Brown he was a coward
Christine Brown has come into her own since leaving her plural marriage. While Christine left Flagstaff, Arizona more than a year ago, Sister Wife fans are only now getting a chance to see their decision-making process unfold.
In season 17 of Sister Wife, Christine became honest about her feelings. She clarified that her ex-husband, Kody Brown, never met her emotional needs. He even once called Kody a coward. While her husband of over two decades agrees with her assessment, it’s not for the reason you might think.
Kody Brown thinks he was a coward, but there’s a catch
In a moment of clarity, Kody admitted that his behavior was cowardly. The clarity lasted only a short time. While it would have been nice to see Kody grow from the experience and come to terms with what happened in his marriage to Christine, he didn’t. He didn’t think it was cowardly to emotionally opt out of plural marriage without telling the women he married. Kody didn’t even think his treatment of his children was morally repugnant.
Instead, Kody suggested he was a “coward” for not telling his third wife, Christine Brown, that he “didn’t like her” in an interview segment. Kody couldn’t let the insults go like that. He took the opportunity to make another dig at Christine. He said that despite his disgust with his third wife, he had not “given up”. While Kody might think so, Sister Wife fans think he quit; he was just a quiet one. The incredible moment happened in the final moments of the season 17 episode, “Life After Polygamy.”
The patriarch of the Brown family was called out for emotionally abandoning his wives last season
In the season 16 episode, Kody was asked about the state of his marriage. At one point, host Sukanya Krishnan asked Kody if he thought he emotionally abandoned his wives. He insisted he did nothing of the sort.
Season 17 brought more emotional abandon. With Christine no longer part of the plural family, the 18-year-old’s father set his sights on one of his other wives. According to the latest look at the series, the final episodes of season 17 will find Kody at odds with his second wife, Janelle Brown, as well. The famous polygamist seems to be emotionally abandoning that relationship quickly, too.

Kody has also made it very clear that he does not consider himself spiritually attached to his first wife, Meri Brown. So it would appear that Kody, once a staunch supporter of plural marriage, has found himself in a monogamous marriage. Sister Wife fans are sure it was by design and the way he made it happen was actually cowardly. That makes his comment about telling Christina that he didn’t like feeling inferior.
