It’s been years since fans of the TLC show noticed the problems in Christine and Kody’s marriage. With the way he was treating his third wife, fans assumed that she would leave Kody in the coming years. Fortunately, the time has finally come, and the Sister Wives celebrity couple is officially separated. Christine announced the news this month and is suspected to have left Flagstaff by now. However, given that the real reason for the divorce is unknown, fans assume that Christine’s mom and aunt could be her motivation. Here are more details:
Sister Wives: Did Christine’s Mother & Aunt Make Her Leave Polygamy?
Over the years, many family members of Sister Wives have been introduced on the show before. This includes Christine Brown’s mom, Ruthann LeBaron Allred, who is majorly known by the name Annie. Reports reveal that Annie was previously involved in a polygamous marriage but ended up quitting it. She reportedly appeared in a documentary and discussed abuse within polygamous communities. She is the only one of Kody’s mothers-in-law who has left the faith.
On the other hand, Christine’s aunt, Kristyn Decker, also left polygamy after a bad experience. Since then, she has never shied from speaking against the faith and often calls it out, highlighting her traumatic experiences. As a result, she didn’t share a good relationship with Christine. Since the women in the third wife’s family have been against polygamy, fans think that they might have influenced Christine for her decision of divorce.
It’s given that the Sister Wives star wasn’t happy in her marriage. However, her mom’s support and guidance could’ve motivated her to finally leave the polygamist as she did back in the day. A fan on Reddit gave a detailed analysis on the topic, spiking rumors about the possibility of the influence.
Sister Wives: Does Christine’s Mom Live With Her In Utah?
While it’s unclear whether Annie influenced Christine to leave Kody, there are chances that she supported her with the decision. The mother-daughter duo has been close to each other, even though Annie talks against polygamy like Christine’s aunt, Kristyn. Previously, it was reported that the Sister Wives star’s mom has been living with her in Flagstaff for the last few years. However, she also hasn’t appeared on the show for the last few years. Fans blame Kody for the same as he could’ve thought Annie to be a bad influence on his third wife.
As of now, Christine is most likely living in a duplex in Utah. Reports say that out of her six kids, only Truely is living with her. However, now that Christine is in Utah, she might’ve asked her mom to live with her. Currently, things aren’t very clear right now. Stay tuned for more updates.
