Sister Wives has heavily revolved around money since the beginning. How they were able to support such a large family plus have the essentials. Then, the older daughters started to get married and it was expected that Kody Brown and his wives would help foot the bill. He quickly realized he had a lot of weddings to pay for as time went by.
Then there were the homes in Las Vegas that would not sell upon the familial decision to move to Flagstaff. Now, the family is in a real pickle as they bought land, Coyote Pass, and have dreams of building on five lots. However, they cannot do this until they pay it off. So, how did they get into such a bind? Here is a breakdown of the Brown family’s struggling finances.
Sister Wives: Breakdown Of Brown Family’s Struggling Finances
Not only has the plural family struggled with marital issues over the last seventeen seasons, but finances have also been an issue. This season, Janelle is desperate to build a home on Coyote Pass. She wants something to call her own as both Christine and Robyn own(ed) their own house. Yet, she always rented in Flagstaff. Unfortunately, Kody alleges they do not have the funds to pay off the land while Janelle knows exactly what they have in the bank.
With all of these constant monetary issues, fans are wondering why they cannot thrive so they started a Reddit thread. “Why are finances such a problem for this family, outside the obvious of having a boatload of children? Shouldn’t a show as successful as this generate enough money for the family to live comfortably?” it began. Then, the OP wondered if the financial issues were just for theatrics.
Another added that the family had been in a hole due to fourth wife Robyn who came in with a slew of debt. Plus, it is questionable how much Kody makes selling guns. At the same time, Robyn does not work yet has a nanny. “They’re not the best with finances and also paying for 4 separate homes plus the land that they’re unlikely to actually build on,” someone noted.
Still In The Hole?
Sister Wives fans had much more to add as to why the Browns are struggling financially. “Because they moved like 5 times and make terrible financial decisions. I.e. they are idiots,” a Redditor shared. It was also pointed out that the family took a pay cut a handful of seasons back in order to stay on the air. Finally, there was this: “Kody does not appear to manage money well and is a bit impulsive. Robyn has mentioned she enjoys the finer things in life and that money should be spent. :: eye roll ::”
In the end, it is Meri, Janelle, and formerly Christine who kept the family afloat. They ended up working in successful MLMs while Meri has a well-established B&B. Now, with Christine gone and Robyn not contributing, is there any wonder why they have money troubles?
