‘Sister Wives’: Is Kody Brown Acting Erratically?

Kody Brown’s four wives aren’t the only people who are tired of the family’s housing drama. Fans of the family’s show, Sister Wives, are finally calling the family’s patriarch out on his erratic behavior, and much of their irritation stems from his inability to make up his mind about where he wants to live. Kody, however, insists that there is nothing “erratic” about his choices. Let’s take a look and figure it all out.

Kody insists Las Vegas was never the family’s long-term landing spot

Kody and his four wives moved to Las Vegas, allegedly, under legal pressure. The alternative family reported that they were going to be prosecuted in Utah for living as a plural family and that they left the state in the dead of night to avoid the issue. A family insider claims that the story is an absolute lie. Kristyn Decker, who is related to Kody’s third wife, Christine Brown, claimed that they had plans to move to Vegas long before they did. Decker, who spoke with Radar Online, was once a part of the polygamist sect the Browns belong to. She has since left the movement.

Decker did seemingly confirm that the family didn’t plan to set down roots for too long in Las Vegas. Reddit users have suggested that the Brown family planned to stay in Vegas until it was fiscally impossible to do so. It is possible that the clock ran out, and their swift move to Flagstaff had more to do with potential upcoming balloon payments on their mortgages, rather than an overwhelming desire to move to Arizona.  Kody nor his wives have commented on the type of mortgages they procured for the four homes they bought in Las Vegas, but the hypothesis from fans would explain their haste.

No one can agree on the Flagstaff property

Kody is a lot of things, and scattered is definitely one of them. The family that includes 18 children and five spouses can’t seem to get on the same page about their future living situation, and that seems to be mostly the fault of Kody. When the family purchased the property that would one day house their “forever home,” Kody, nor his four wives, had any idea of what they would be doing with it. While all four wives seem to agree that separate homes make the most sense for their current interactions, Kody believes one expansive home would fit their needs.

Kody’s vision includes a house set up expressly for his polygamist needs. While that might seem like an excellent idea if the family was planning to live in Flagstaff forever, fans point out that Kody, once again, isn’t thinking about long-term prospects, and could be sending his family towards financial ruin. Kody refuses to commit to Flagstaff as his “forever home,” much to the chagrin of his fourth and legal wife, Robyn Brown.

It took the family more than a year to finally unload the four homes they owned in Las Vegas, and those were separate residences. It seems like a large home with separate wings would be pretty hard to sell to the people of Flagstaff, where polygamy isn’t particularly widespread. If the Brown family decides to move again, it seems like that they will follow their typical pattern of moving before the property they own is sold.

Is Kody acting erratically?

While a Twitter follower suggested that Kody is acting erratically, it’s hard to ascertain precisely what is going on. Kody, according to the family’s book Becoming Sister Wives, has always been a bit flighty. Before settling in Las Vegas, the family moved around rather often. In fact, Meri Brown, Christine, and Janelle Brown bounced around several states before landing in Utah when the show began. Las Vegas appears to be the place the family stayed the longest.

When questioned about his erratic behavior and impulsivity, Kody shot back, claiming that the twitter follower wasn’t paying attention to years of nuances. Fans are unsure about what nuances Kody was referring too, and he decided not to elaborate, but it’s possible he’s letting fans know that this behavior is nothing new. Based on the family’s book, he’s not wrong. That doesn’t mean it’s a good thing, though.
