‘Sister Wives’: Robyn and Kody Brown Fight Bitterly About God’s Plan In New Preview Clip
Robyn and Kody Brown of TLC’s Sister Wives have struggled in their marriage in the latest season. Fans are surprised by the polygamist husband’s challenges with his fourth and youngest wife, especially because Robyn has long been believed to be Kody’s favorite wife.
In a new preview clip of the Mar. 8 episode of Sister Wives, “Breaking Point,” Kody and Robyn are at odds once again. When Robyn’s rental home in Flagstaff sells unexpectedly, Kody wants to buy, but Robyn is convinced the family should rent instead.
Robyn and Kody tell the kids they have to move
After the Browns moved from Las Vegas to Flagstaff, they planned to build and live together on their new land, Coyote Pass. But things didn’t go as planned, and the family ended up being separated in far-flung homes for much longer than they had hoped.
In TLC’s new Sister Wives preview clip, Robyn and Kody sit down with the kids to deliver some more bad news. With Robyn’s five children (three from a previous marriage, now adopted by Kody, and two biological kids with Kody) gathered in the living room, Kody announces they’ll be moving yet again in under two months.
“This house is up for sale, and it’s been sold,” Kody announces in the sneak peek. “We’re out in 60 days.”
Robyn, who looks exhausted and heartbroken, laments, “We’re having a really hard time trying to find a rental, and I don’t know what to do at this point.”
But Kody interrupts to declare, “We’re not finding a rental. I’m sorry. We’re gonna make an offer on a house. We’re gonna buy a house. Mom doesn’t like it, and I haven’t talked her into it yet.”
His fourth wife pushes back, insisting, “Well, we don’t have to do that yet. We have a little bit of time to keep looking for a rental…We don’t have to do that. We don’t have to buy a house.”
Kody and his youngest wife disagree on God’s plan for the family
Robyn seems angry as she vents to Sister Wives producers. The 41-year-old mom of five hints that her husband overstepped his boundaries and didn’t present them as a team. “I guess Kody decided to tell the kids that he wants to buy,” she says in the TLC preview.
“It’s not a matter of wanting, love,” Kody pushes back in the interview. “It’s a matter of, there is only one choice here provided.”
But Robyn wants the family to wait for divine intervention, especially because buying a home instead of renting will delay the building process on Coyote Pass. The Sister Wives star has been open about her desire to be part of a plural family, and she doesn’t want her kids to be isolated from her sister wives’ children.
“God is not limited by the rules of this earth,” Robyn exclaims. “And if He wants to provide the rental when He provides it, it’ll be fine.”
Kody objects, declaring definitively, “I’m not saying I don’t think He can do it. I’m saying that He’s telling us to do something else.”
“He is not telling me that!” Robyn snaps miserably in response.
Kody’s fourth wife says buying will negatively affect the whole ‘Sister Wives’ family
Kody overrides his wife’s objections again, pushing the issue of buying with the kids. “We barely have enough time to buy, close and move,” he says. “All right, let me ask you guys. It might set us back to moving out on Coyote Pass. It might.”
But Robyn tells TLC producers that Kody isn’t being totally honest. “It will set us back as far as moving out to Coyote Pass,” she tells them. “I don’t know why he’s saying it might.”
The Sister Wives star explains further that the whole Brown family suffers when they’re not together. She doesn’t want to be part of the reason that the family is kept apart even longer. “It’s not just affecting me and my kids, if we were to buy and delay,” Robyn says. “It’s affecting the whole family.”
Christine Brown, Kody’s third wife, thinks that both Robyn and Kody have a point in the buying vs. renting debate. “I think both options are great for the family. I really do,” she confesses at the end of the sneak peek. “I bought. It delays us, but in the end, they both help the family. They really do.”
