I Don't Blame Christine Brown For Leaving Kody After He Told Her He Doesn't Want 'Intimate' Marriage

Look, no marriage is perfect. I am the last person to be judging anyone's relationship because no one really knows what goes on behind closed doors. However, when you're on a TLC reality show where the sole purpose is to document your marriage, I am going to have something to say about it.

And that message goes out to you, Kody Brown!

TLC's hit show "Sister Wives" is taking fans on an unprecedented journey into their polygamous lifestyle.

Fans of the series have seen the Browns give birth, relocate, get married, relocate, go on family trips, relocate, build homes, and relocate.

However, fans have never seen the family this unhappy.

This season of "Sister Wives" shows the months leading up to third wife Christine's decision to leave the family.

While tensions have been rising for several seasons, things came to a head on Sunday night's episode.

As veiwers know, Christine and Kody's marriage has been strained for some time.

On Sunday night, fans watched as Christine opened up about a difficult conversation she had with Kody about the "intimate side" of their marriage, as per People.

She goes on to reveal that Kody is "not really interested in that anymore."

"He goes, 'I'm not interested in having an intimate marriage anymore. I don't like your behavior. We'll see if you can be a good sister wife,' and all this," recalls Christine.

"I'm like, 'Okay, so you don't want us to have an intimate marriage?' And he goes, 'No.'''

"I'm like, 'That's not enough for me. I can't not have an intimate marriage.'" she continues.

I can't even imagine the devastation and heartbreak Christine was filled with at this moment.

"I'm heartbroken," she tells the camera. "My heart's shattered, to be honest with you."

As viewers of the show know, Kody has a "friendship" marriage with first wife Meri, but it's clear that arrangement was not going to work with Christine.

"It's over. The intimate part of our marriage is over," she admits.

As fans may recall, Kody has previously expressed not being physically attracted to Christine anymore. however, she had been holding onto hope that that would change.

"And to be honest, I'm not okay with that. I'm not okay with staying in a marriage where there's no intimacy," she adds.

"That's not a real marriage. I'm not interested in a half marriage or a partial marriage or whatever we have."

Watching this season unfold answers every question I've had since the pair announced their split last year.

As fans will recall, the couple publically announced their decision to end their marriage last November in a series of Instagram posts.

"We will continue to be a strong presence in each other's lives as we parent our beautiful children and support our wonderful family," she wrote on Instagram at the time.

"At this time, we ask for your grace and kindness as we navigate through this stage within our family."

While it was probably such a dificult decision for Christine to leave, I think I can speak for all the "Sister Wives" fans when I say I'm glad she did.

I'm just so glad the 49-year-old is doing what is best for her and her family!
