If it’s the young girl, she was before Christine. She dumped Kody a week before the wedding then he moved onto Christine.


Wow, I don't recall that!! Was it in their "book"?


Yes. Christine introduced them, not as a potential wife but that’s where it went. She changed her mind a week before the wedding.


Mannnnnn she dodged a bullet there!! Run, Forrest, run!🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️🏃‍♀️


She was 17 when they met her, and they had to wait until she turned 18 to propose. 🚩 🚩🚩


So gross and predatory.


Yep doesnt make kody or christine look good.


Christine was in love with Kody and did not want someone else to marry him. She did not introduce this girl as a potential wife to kody, I don’t think she introduced them at all . Christine was asked to drive this girl to some meet up event with meri and kody so Christine agreed. So I wouldn’t say that Christine looks bad here. It was a big church group event and she was asked to be the girls ride.


Exactly! I brought this up on this sub once and still people defended Kody and Meri and said they were in their 20’s so it’s fine. I will die on this hill- people in their 20’s should not be dating teenagers. Duh.


especially since this was a grown married couple....this wasn't a 17 year old freshman in college dating an upperclassman






Actually Meri set it up.


Meri probably pursued her but there’s a whole section in their book with Christine describing how they met… the girl was new to their church and Christine invited her on a trip/ event to meet other church members, Meri and Kody were there. Christine had a crush on Kody and said he ignored her and was into that girl.


Doesn’t Meri do all the set ups?


Meri is a pimp


A pimp who found out her pimp hand was not way strong. I think she expected Krody’s undying gratitude- ie- at least some intimacy- and got shafted by Krody and her hand picked procured one, Sobyn. Meri is a low rent Ghislaine Maxwell!




Except Janelle, Kody and Janelle were sneaking around behind her back.


Ha! I didn't know that. Now, I understand the hate.


I wonder why? Was it Meri, Kody, or both that drove her off? I wonder what became of her life? If she went with a different polygamous family or (hopefully) went monogamous or chose the single life? I have so many questions! We’ll probably never know.


She should start a podcast and call it, *Dodging the Brown Family Bullet*.


“A Bullet Named Brown”


I heard she was not even 18 😬






Man. I remember how they denounced other polygamists because of their underaged brides when it sounds like they would have if they had the chance. 🤢






Someone in their 20s dating a minor is always wrong.


THEY don’t court anyone. Kody does. He says the wives pick the women and make the introduction and get to choose but that is just what he says to make himself look less predatory. I had an awful babysitter as a kid that used to make us kids pick our own “switch” off a tree so she could beat us with it. It was in no way our choice to pick, but we knew if we did t, the beatings would be worse. Picking the strongest best switch ourself was part of the punishment. I see him telling them to pick a wife that he will then use to abuse them with is the same insanity. HE CHOSE! He just gave them the appearance of them having a say. It’s what abusers do.


That is such a horrific story about your babysitter. I'm so sorry you went through that as a child. And I really hope your parents did you right when/if they found out.


Thank you. It was slightly better than kneeling in rice. It is awful that that was so normal back in the day around here. All the kids I grew up with joke about our picking switch stories and then we realize how f*cked up it was. Especially since it could be for something as minor as not saying “yes ma’am”. I cannot even imagine physically punishing my children. I do not remember if that was the reason she stopped baby sitting us or not but I started being a latch key kid by 3rd grade. I’m not sure that was safer. Some days I wouldn’t get on the bus, I would play in the woods all day alone. Geez. I’m giving myself a panic attack thinking about my kids running free. Yikes. I’m definitely more of a Robyn mom at times. For good reason.


I want to scoop little you up and cuddle you. That all sounds so horrendous. I'm sorry that was part of your childhood.


I remember an old man making a joke about “Getting his belt” after my son and he (7?-9ish?) showed him that he didn’t need a belt because his pants had adjustable straps. He had no idea what the man meant by getting a belt after him. We still laugh about his horror when we explained what he meant. My daughter on the other hand would look him in his eyes and say “I wish You would” Haha.


Church sets it up.


Not the wives. As the men ALL claim.


Perfect analogy.


Wonder if her family were also polygamous or not?


Mindy? Lol
