Sister Wives star Janelle Brown has always been sidelined by her spiritual husband Kody Brown. Although Season 17 has been all about Christine Brown’s broken relationship, fans feel Janelle is the real victim of emotional abuse. Amid the ongoing drama, Janelle has been very supportive of Christine and she can understand what her sister-wife is going through. Why is Christine’s story so relatable to Janelle? How do fans feel about Janelle and Kody? Keep reading to find out the details!
Janelle Brown Was Doubtful About Being In A Plural Marriage
Kody’s treatment of Janelle has been so bad over the years that there have been instances where she wondered if being a part of a polygamist relationship is right for her. Back in Season 16, she was seen reflecting in her confessional and said, “I’ve caught myself in the last few weeks really reflecting and being like, ‘OK, look: do I still choose plural marriage?’ Yeah, I still choose it, but I’ve had to [make] that conscious decision with myself.”
“My children are almost grown and there’s not a huge necessity anymore to stay. It was a wonderful way to raise children. With Kody and I right now, our relationship is pretty strained, and you know it’d be really easy, it’s easy to walk away,” she explained.
Janelle Brown Ended Up With No Home Even With A Job
While there is an obvious strain in her relationship with Kody, Janelle also ended up with no home. Moreover, she was financially abused for years. Even though she had a full-time job, she literally ended up with nothing. Kody was all in for Robyn getting a house but he never supported Janelle, who ultimately ended up getting a fifth-wheel trailer to live in.
Talking about this on Reddit, a fan wrote, “The ‘Kidney Monologue’ should have gone to Janelle. 30 years of financial abuse by this family! It’s clear she’s leaving with only the RV and her half of her CP parcel.”
The family owns Coyote Pass, of which Robyn has the highest cut which is worth $320,000. On the other hand, Janelle’s property cut is worth $260,000 followed by Christine’s cut which is worth $150,000. The smallest part of the land is with Meri, worth only $90,000. There is no confirmation that proves Christine sold her Coyote Pass portion yet. However, fans speculate that she has already sold her share to Kody.
Plural Marriage Cost Janelle Her Financial Security
Although Janelle does own the land, she doesn’t have the finances to build a house on it. Moreover, Kody didn’t support her financially as he did Robyn. So, now she lives in a fifth-wheel trailer instead of a home.
Another Sister Wives fan wrote, “It should have went to a mirror… he is the architect of his own demise and ‘family culture’. He is the one who left his other wives and children.”
“One of the protections of a legal marriage is equitable distribution of property upon divorce. The problem with polygamy is that there is no protection at all for the women if they choose to leave,” explained the third fan.
A fourth Reddit user wrote,
“That’s why Janelle was upset with herself for not having any property in her name only (as she did with her Vegas house). Because that’s really the only way they can solidify their assets if they decide to leave.”
Do you think Janelle was robbed of her rights even when she was the primary worker of the family? Share your thoughts in the comments!
