Sister Wives Star Christine Brown Had "Fear, Stress, But No Hesitation" in Leaving Kody | PEOPLE
Brown decided she wanted to end her relationship with Cody after more than 25 years, she knew
leaving wouldn't be a quick process, once I knew I was
leaving Cody it was almost like I had decided i was going to leave him and then i saw myself and at the end i had to imagine where i wanted to be next step to the next step she said i dont want you to stay in my room she is like my room is a special place for me and nothing special happens there for us i'm like ok first i told him he wasn't welcome in my bed anymore.
I just said you know you don't really want to be in my bed with me and you don't want to be in my room so I don't want you there I need you to not stay with me anymore he's like what I can don't stay there and i said no you can't stay in my bed and you can't stay in my room you can come and hang out with the girls but then you have to go you can't stay and so we did and then we did we haven't talked for weeks and the next time we stopped by he was happily walking up the stairs like what are you i'm like you mustn't i have to go you're
leaving it's like where should i sleep i'm like oh i don't know you have other houses to go and he is how do you have to sleep the couch i am like no actually he is how good in other monogamous relationships would he have to sleep on the couch i am like you have other places to go so shortly after that i have his thing en wrapped up and that's it you know.
It was actually a pretty good talk, it wasn't that bad. I just said look you don't want this anymore I don't want this anymore you have to let me go and he was like what do you mean by that I'm like I have to go I can't stay here anymore you are not happy i'm not happy and i'm moving to utah too the whole situation with the house moving was gross and what to do with it but he was okay you know it's a tough talk but he was okay it wasn't bad, he was honest, he was brutally honest, but I'd rather be brutally honest than pretend it's going to work, it's not going to work, so let's just figure out how we're going and I wanted it always do it with grace.
I remember realizing that I'm going to get a divorce, it's going to be public and it doesn't mean the public knows what that means, my kids know my kids will always look like me behave so i just decided if i do this i will be public i deal with grace and just do as much kindness as possible so i always thought you know what no matter what i remember how I've put my feet up several times in conversation and just taken deep breaths, grounded myself with grace, listen to my heart and moved forward in the conversation, and I said you know we've been married 26 years so I'm sure it can be nice is hard right i think divorce is hard divorce sucks i am ending a relationship of 26 years i am who i am today because of the choices i made when i was married to cody so we were good friends before r we married you you know, I just hope that someday we can be good friends again
