Where exactly do Christine and Janelle Brown stand with Kody Brown?

As mentioned before, Christine is 100 percent done with her marriage to Kody. She announced during the Sister Wives reunion special in February 2022, “Kody and I are divorced. We’re completely separate. We’re just going to be friends, eventually. I just realized I had to make a decision for my heart and my heart was done being broken. It felt … freeing."

She also mentioned that she was “done pretending" about everything being fine and dandy within her marriage to Kody. She said, “I’ve been showing the kids everything's fine, I’ve been showing everybody that everything‘s fine. And I can’t pretend anymore."

It’s obvious that Christine made the right decision for her. And it seems that her fans on social media totally agree.

As for Janelle, her choice to walk away from Kody might be coming any moment now.

Janelle said in a January 2022 episode of Sister Wives, “I’ve had to really think ... my children are almost grown and there’s not a huge necessity anymore to stay. It was a wonderful way to raise children. [But] with Kody and me right now, our relationship has become pretty strained."

From an outsider's perspective, it seems Janelle may be following in Christine’s footsteps at some point down the line. Sources previously told Us Weekly that because Janelle has seen how well Christine is doing following her split from Kody, Janelle might potentially leave as well.

Only time will be able to tell. For now, Christine and Janelle's friendship is lovely to keep up with.
