Kody Brown has shown that he does not really care if a wife loves him. Rather, the father of eighteen has other expectations from his partners. This could be why his marriages have failed him. He wants his wives to kiss his toes but in more of a metaphorical way. Read on for more details.
Kody Brown Doesn’t Want Love, Wants His Toes Kissed
Essentially, Kody Brown wants his wives to bow down to him. He admitted this in the third part of the Season 17 Sister Wives tell-all. While he was discussing what went wrong in his marriages, he made a confession. Kody Brown told tell-all host Sukanya Krishnan that he does not want love. This is quite a shock considering he seemingly wants to be adored by his wives. Rather he wants respect. That is more vital to him than everything else.
The entire season, he was preaching the idea of loyalty and how his wives were not giving that to him. In fact, this all really started in Season 16 when he felt that Janelle and Christine were not following his pandemic protocols. Kody Brown believed that they, along with their kids, were being highly disobedient. This was something that he struggled with and then Christine decided she was leaving. It was very hard for him because he believed that Janelle was being disloyal by being so close to Christine.
Then, he went out to eat with Janelle and told her that he spent so much time with Robyn since she was really devoted to him. Her loyalty was unwavering and that was what he wanted from his second wife. It just was not enough and though he wishes he could work things out with Janelle, there is a problem. Kody Brown wants respect over love and he feels that she did not give that to him. Clearly, Janelle sees things very differently so they are at an impasse.
Does He Have Respect?
In the end, Janelle said she still had some respect for Kody Brown but that it was dwindling. She saw how he treated her children and that was awful. At the time, he was estranged from his sons, Gabe and Garrison. Though he issued a public apology via the tell-all, is that really enough? Plus, was it genuine, and was it a little too late? Getting respect is earned, you cannot just ask for or demand it and it seems that Kody has not learned this. How many wives have to leave for him to understand or is he fine with just Robyn?
Do you think Kody Brown’s priorities in marriage are all wrong? Let us know and watch the final part of Sister Wives One-On-One Sunday, January 8th on TLC.
