‘Sister Wives’: Could Christine’s Pandemic Movements Hint at a Big Change for the Brown Family?

Almost two years ago, the Brown family packed up their Las Vegas homes and headed for Flagstaff, Arizona. Flagstaff, an area known for its laidback vibe, was supposed to be the family’s forever home, but problems are mounting, and family followers think the cast of Sister Wives will see the inside of a U-Haul again soon. If Christine Brown’s recent road trip is a clue, the family might be headed back to the state fans first met them in.

Flagstaff may not be as welcoming or financially feasible as the Brown family originally thought

From the moment the Brown family stepped foot in Arizona, they’ve dealt with nothing but drama. Reports have swirled that they were in serious financial trouble. Additionally, fighting inside the family reached a new level over the last 12 months, and the people of Flagstaff have reportedly not been particularly welcoming.

Combine all of that with the fact that the family has failed to break ground on their large plot of land, and fans are skeptical that Flagstaff will be the family’s longterm home. Several wives have also taken to traveling extensively since setting down roots in the Arizona college town. Meri Brown, who’s drama with Kody has been especially uncomfortable to witness, had traveled across the United States in the months leading up to the lockdown. Since the lockdown, she’s seemingly set down roots in Las Vegas, at least part of the time. Janelle Brown has also been spotted traversing the country.

Christine was spotted in St. George recently

Christine has been pretty busy lately. Aside from dropping clues about the upcoming season via her Facebook Live events, she’s also been traveling a bit. Fans were particularly interested in a recent trip she took back to St. George, Utah. The visit, amidst the pandemic, has some followers wondering if the mother of six is scoping out potential places to live in the area.

According to Soap Dirt, Christine, along with several of the Brown kids, packed in the car for the five-hour trip to St. George, Utah. What they were doing in the state is anyone’s guess, but the timing of the journey has some fans crafting exciting theories about the nature of Christine’s visit. Sure, she has family in the area, but the fact that she visited during a global pandemic has led some family followers to believe the reason for the visit was time-sensitive.

The family already has ties to St. George

Christine’s trip to the area aside, there are several other hints that the family could be considering yet another move. The family has yet to build on their Coyote Pass property, and they are swimming in debt. St. George is decidedly cheaper than most other areas, and the family has ties to the area already. Utah has recently decriminalized polygamy, making the area a bit friendlier for the Browns.

In the family’s book, Becoming Sister Wives, Robyn recounted how she had grown up in St. George, Utah, an area that, while not far from Las Vegas, is decidedly more rural and laidback. Mykelti Brown, the daughter of Christine and Kody, also took up residence in the area after she married Tony Padron in 2016. Aspyn Brown, who married Mitch Thompson in 2018, also resides in Utah. The Brown family has yet to mention a move in their future, but it is possible they are keeping it quiet until the show’s next season.
