The heartbreaking finale of ‘Sister Wives’ season 16 was difficult to watch
In a self-filmed confessional, Christine reveals that she and Kody discussed their lack of an intimate relationship.
She admits that he told her he was not interested in having an intimate relationship with her anymore. Christine claimed Kody said he did not like her behavior and wanted to see if she could be a better sister wife.
Kody claimed other couples live without intimacy. However, Christine said she could not be in a marriage that way.
She shared with viewers that she did not understand how Kody was intimate with other sister wives but not her.
Christine then admitted Kody told her sometime earlier that he was no longer attracted to her.
Christine decided that since their marriage was over, it was best to pack up Kody’s things and leave them in her garage. She no longer wanted his items in her home.
Kody appeared dumbfounded at her reaction. He claimed he did not know if this was an attention-getting move on Christine’s part or if she was earnest in her actions.

“Bye, Kody, don’t let the door hit you on your way out,” one viewer wrote of their reaction to the scene.
“Meri should go too! Why would she want to stay there when Kody wants to be friends? Go out and find real love. Life is so short!” exclaimed a second fan.
“I would have moved his stuff out after returning from Ysabel’s surgery that he refused to attend! That was the last straw!!” penned a third Instagram user.
“He kept saying, “we didn’t discuss this.” He can’t accept that he does not have a choice. And I loved every minute of it,” remarked a fourth viewer.
