Christine Brown pinpoints when things went south for her
While the Season 17 Premiere showed flashbacks, Christine Brown explained that her pregnancy with Truely was when her relationship with Kody took a turn for the worse. According to Christine, she had to maintain a source of income while being pregnant. She found working at night to be the solution to her problem. This solution, however, did come with a problem. She wasn’t at the house to put her children to bed and tuck them in at night.
Christine Brown explained that she leaned on Kody and asked him for help. Could he tuck their children in and stay with them until they go to sleep? They all lived in one house at the time, so she assumed it would be a nonissue. Kody, however, told her no. He claimed he was too busy with other things and couldn’t help her with this problem.
Christine Brown tells the cameras that their daughter Aspyn, who was just ten at the time, was forced to tuck her siblings in and be the sister mom of the household so Christine could maintain a job while being pregnant with Truely. For Christine, this was the moment her relationship with Kody shattered, This was the moment she was alone despite being married.
