1. Kody said all 4 of his wives tried to kick him out: ‘It’s a game to me’
While speaking to Robyn Brown, wife four, about the issues he and Christine were having, he mentioned that being kicked out of one of his homes was nothing new to him.
“Janelle tried to kick me out, Robyn tried to kick me out, Meri did that all the time,” Kody said of explaining why he didn’t want to sleep on the couch with Christine. “It’s a game. It’s a game for me. I don’t want to play this game. I won’t play this game.”
2. Kody says he wasn’t attracted to Christine when they got married: “I felt pushed into the marriage”
“It’s true, we got married under circumstances that weren’t romantic,” Kody said.
“They were for me,” Christine said. “They weren’t for you.”
“I didn’t know any better and if I had known better…” Kody said. “It felt like we were following a destiny.”
Christine says in her confessional that she felt she had to meet criteria in how she interacted with her sister-wives in order for Kody to be attracted to her.
“Okay, so we can unravel this further because it’s true that I didn’t dress you when we got married,” Kody said. “I felt pressured into marriage. I didn’t know any better then.”
The scene then jumps to Christine’s confessional where she reacts to hearing that her former husband of 25 years wasn’t all in on their wedding day.
“Oh my god really?” she said in the confessional. “Didn’t he know better? So did he marry me out of obligation?”

“You’re an asshole,” she said of Kody. “To think that my worth as a human being depends on how you think I treat other people. You don’t find me attractive. I think you’re looking for excuses. Why should I treat the way I… treat the woman you love… that’s what matters. I think he has a favorite wife and I think he has a favorite wife and that’s why it’s all the way it is. And apparently I don’t treat her well enough.”

“You can grow up and make it,” he said when Christine asked how she could continue living in Flagstaff. “You can go marry someone else. You can bring them here and they can become part of the family. You’re not breaking the family with what you’re trying to do. when you grow up Adults do that.”
He also expressed concern that a man in Utah might turn her against the family.
“I’m afraid of that,” he said. “You take Truly, you go to Utah, the most anti-police state in the US. You get a friend who wants some of our money. And between you, your friend, and the state of Utah, I’m losing all access to Truly and all my money because I’ve seen it happen to many, many people.”
“That’s not going to happen,” Christine replied.
