‘Sister Wives’: Kody Brown Says Polygamy Kills Romance – His Wives Snap Back

Sister Wives star Kody Brown is not on top of his game financially this season but in the next episode, he’s plagued with romance woes as well. Or so the father of 18 kids claims. Valentine’s Day usually comes with some romance as you hand your sweetheart candy or flowers. But not this year in the Sister Wives plural marriage. Well, at least it looks that way in the previews.

Sister Wives: Kody Brown Unloads Valentine’s Day Gifts

In the up and coming Sister Wives episode, Kody Brown celebrates Valentine’s day, the February 14th holiday, with flowers for all four wives. Instead of waiting for a private moment to offer this gift to each individual wife, it’s done in a group. Yes, a group hand out, just like you’d pass out flyers.

While Kody doles out a flower arrangement to each wife, the Sister Wives husband does it in the same fashion you might unload groceries. The cut flowers arranged in four vases look like they set him back a few bucks.

This seems rather contradictory from the man who claims to have major financial problems. But it is Valentine’s Day. While the Sister Wives preview shows Kody and his flowers, you don’t see any type of romance. It’s like Kody Brown is completing a task at hand.

Maybe polygamy really does kill romance, as Kody Brown declares later in the next Sister Wives show. Or maybe a little effort might stave off the murder of romance, he so readily blames on his lifestyle. It seems like Kody’s wives think so.

Polygamy Kills Romance according to Kody Brown

The preview for the next Sister Wives has Kody brown discussing Valentines day and romance. There are clips of him passing out bouquets of flowers to all his wives.

Then, Kody Brown says “I think plural marriage kills romance. Robin snaps back, “it can if you let it”. Christine adds, “it can if you you’re all in ONE house”.

Kody Brown is either a victim of Sister Wives editing this season or his tendency to feel sorry for himself grew bigger than ever. He complains about how everyone wants something from him. While he continues on with this shared-house deal, the writing looks like it’s already on the wall.

Sister Wives: Not Enough Kody to Go Around?

It seems obvious that his Sister Wives dream house puts his wives too close in proximity. That not only doesn’t work for them but him as well. Instead of one wife watching as he goes out the door, he’ll have four. So if he thinks there’s not enough of him to go around right now, it looks like he realizes he’ll find himself pulled in too many directions in a shared dwelling.

When he makes his rounds from house to house, there’s only one set of Sister Wives eyes on him as he leaves. There’s only one wife asking where he’s headed. With all four Sister Wives ladies under one roof, that’s a lot of explaining for Kody Brown every day, all day long.

So living together as one big happy family eases the pain of Kody packing up and moving each day. But it adds to the stress. While under one roof with everyone, Kody risks being pulled in more than a dozen different directions at any given time.

That is if everyone wants something from him as he claims.  At least at the individual homes, Kody can be completely present for his one wife and her kids. So it looks as if Christine’s recipe for an easy way to kill the romance might ring true. Just put everyone under one roof. It also seems as if polygamy can kill romance but that’s only if Kody Brown lets it.
