Janelle and Kody spiritually wed in 1993, three years after the Wyoming native married first wife Meri Brown. In 1994, Christine Brown joined their family, and Robyn Brown rounded out the plural brood in 2010.
Kody legally married Robyn in 2014 after divorcing Meri, with whom he chose to continue a spiritual union. Years later, fractures emerged in Janelle and Kody’s relationship after his marriage to Christine came to an end in 2021.
During season 17 of Sister Wives, which was filmed in 2021 and aired in 2022, fans watched as Janelle and Kody butted heads over their kids. The pair share six children: Logan, Maddie, Hunter, Garrison, Gabriel and Savanah.
Janelle confirmed in December 2022 that she and Kody had been “separated for several months.” Meri, meanwhile, confirmed her own split from Kody the following month.
