Janelle shares why she is “losing respect” for her husband and why being so “happy” without him has led to a crisis of faith.
Kody Brown said goodbye to one of his “Sister Wives” on the show’s most recent season, another said he didn’t consider himself married to her on the “One on One” special, and in tonight’s final installment, a third confirmed she and her husband are “separated”.
While a reunion preview prompted Janelle and Kody to confirm that they too had gone their separate ways, the pair weighed in on what went wrong when the full hour aired on Sunday night. Throughout the season, the duo clashed over how Kody handled the Covid protocols with the entire family, leading to serious issues with two of her children she shares with Janelle, and with Christine and Meri, who felt that the protocols they favored Robyn.
“I know that she suffered more in plural marriage. I think Janelle came to this idealistically and was devastated by the experience of plural marriage,” said Kody, who detailed how he felt “disrespected” by all women for fighting with her. him for something he felt was “keeping our family safe”.
“It really made me know who was going to respect me and who wasn’t,” she said, before being asked if she thinks Janelle specifically disrespected her. “Absolutely, she doesn’t respect me.” She also added, “Yeah, we’re broken up. Pretty stupid for people who love each other, huh?”

In their own separate meeting, Janelle said that there was no “love” between them anymore at the moment.
“It’s duty. It’s commitment. It’s faith that tells you to work it out and stick with it. I think if we both sat down for real, we’d both look at each other and say, ‘Really?’ We have been apart for several months, “he revealed then, surprising the host. “Kody and I have parted ways and I’m happy, very happy.”
“Things really became a bit indifferent. I just didn’t care anymore,” she said, adding that while she respects him, she is “very angry about what happened with our children” and “losing respect for him in that regard.” . She” She also said the disrespect was a “mutual” thing, saying, “It’s a two-way street there. I think if he had really been taking care of me and our children, he would have found a way to fix it.” Work for the whole family instead of having his rules and staying where he was respected and obeyed [with Robyn].”
When asked if she felt the couple could get back to a “romantic” relationship, Janelle said she wasn’t “waiting for him” to come back in that sense.
“I sort of regretted that, that part of our life is gone. It wasn’t heartbreaking for me like it was for Christine. It was really cool, we had this great run,” he said, before sharing that he “overlooked” his 29th anniversary after a fight between them over how they would celebrate the holidays. Janelle claimed they didn’t speak for 3-4 months after that…so she wasn’t expecting a big 30th anniversary celebration for her either.

“I think it could be there, but it would require so many changes on both sides, I don’t know,” he continued, later speaking about the situation that has also presented him with a crisis of faith.
“Other than thinking, okay, my religion requires you to continue to make a marriage work and I believe deeply in my faith. And I’ve been so at peace that I don’t know how to reconcile that,” he explained. “So that’s my debate with myself all the time. I know I’m happy, I don’t want him back, but my faith requires that we be married forever.”
Asked if that meant “the door is still open” to reconciliation, Janelle said, “It has to be…but I’m not interested in anyone walking through that door.”
Kody said his estranged wife “has made it very clear to me that she’s enjoying her life without me,” but added that he “absolutely” wanted to work it out… as long as he feels respected.
“I want to fix it, yes, but that’s a whole new negotiation. We’re in a new place,” he continued. “Christine’s gone. Janelle likes her. Why couldn’t they be good sister wives when they were sister wives? That’s a mess.”
The hour ended with no real resolution, but Kody stated, “I hope I find a beautiful happy place with Janelle and I hope my kids and I can reconcile. Here’s hope.”
