Christine Brown knew that her husband, Kody was not attracted to her. This was something he knew from one of their earlier dates. The two had stopped to grab a snack. He then watched the young but in-love Christine eat nachos and he has admitted it repulsed him. However, the two went on to wed in 1994 and have six children together. Christine left Kody and the plural family, which included three other wives in 2021. Now, she is opening up about knowing that the man she was with for over twenty-five years was simply not attracted to her.
Christine Brown Reflects On How Kody Wasn’t ‘Attracted’ To Her
Now that she is a free woman, Christine is not holding anything back. In last Sunday’s episode of Sister Wives, she opened up about how free she felt not having to listen to him. Kody was helping her finish packing up the moving truck so she could finalize the move to Utah. He was determined to do it his way and tell her how he wanted it done. However, Christine knew that she could tell him the way that SHE wanted it and HOW. They were divorced and she did not have to bow down to him any longer, a harsh realization for the both of them.
According to Us Weekly, Christine reflected on how Kody’s words made her feel. She shared these thoughts on the podcast Reality Life with Kate Casey. Christine explained that his saying he was not attracted to her was an “empowering” moment. “I kind of look back and I’m like, ‘Ah, I can see where you weren’t here and here and here and here and here and here.’ But you know what, if this has been happening for this long, I’m done. It’s over. I’m not going to keep pretending and I’m not going to keep doing this.”
Furthermore, hearing and knowing that Kody felt this way only solidified that she was making the right decision by leaving. “If you really haven’t been attracted to me, and if you really didn’t really want a relationship with me, and you didn’t really want to spend time with me … it was almost like this burden got lifted. And I was like, ‘Alright, then it’s time to move on.’”
Though Kody has said he was going through the motions and did not know better when they wed in 1994, that was not the same for her. Christine Brown thoroughly had romantic feelings and emotions for her husband. She admitted that she thought he was brave and cool so she was blinded by love. Especially since she was all of twenty-two when they spiritually wed. It is anybody’s guess how things may have been different if Christine knew up front that he did not feel the same way about her. However, he said that the feeling did change the more he got to know her.
She came into the family at a pivotal time when everything was quite messy. His first two wives, Meri and Janelle, were struggling to get along. Yet it was Christine who was able to break up the tension and her sunny disposition along with her obedient attitude helped to change the vibe. However, she realized she had to do what was best for her, and being in a romance-free marriage did not work.
