Sister Wives: 6 Details about Kody and Robyn's relationship you never knew
After five seasons of Sister Wives, we all figured we pretty much know everything about Kody Brown's relationship history with all of his wives, right? Wrong!
TLC just released a sneak peek of Season 6 that serves as proof that there are still mysteries to be unveiled about the lives of the unconventional family, especially pertaining to Kody's relationship with Robyn, his fourth and most recent wife.
From how they met to baby talk, the trailer is full of reveals about everyone's favorite polygamist family. Take a look.
1. First wife, Meri, was there when Kody and Robyn met
"So Kody and I were out one night and we went over to a friend's house, and Robyn happens to be this friend's cousin," Meri says of the night they all met in the Season 6 preview. "So that's where we first met Robyn."
Hearing Meri recall the night Kody met his new wife-to-be is a tad awkward now, considering Meri and Kody divorced in 2014 after 25 years of marriage, so Robyn could be Kody's official wife (there are four Brown wives altogether, but since it's only legal to have one, the other three are considered "spiritual" wives).
2. Robyn and Kody had a long courtship
The two had been seeing each other for four months before Kody decided to pop the question, which, according to Kody, was quite a long wait.
"I'd been courting Robyn for four months. By polygamist standards, that's actually a long time," explained Kody.
3. Kody was nervous about dating Robyn
It had been a while since Kody had courted anyone new, and the reality star admits he was a little uneasy with the dating scene, despite the fact he already had three wives at home.
"I've never really held hands with a woman that wasn't my wife in 16 years," he said. "And I'm rusty."
4. Robyn's engagement ring was definitely not blinged out
"I thought I'd get you a ring," Kody says in the footage with a laugh. "You won't like this at all. It's a string," he adds, before handing over a dark piece of yarn to his newly betrothed.
But Robyn didn't let it damper her enthusiasm. "Oh my heck!" she exclaimed while rolling the string onto her ring finger. "Seriously? This is awesome."
5. Robyn was afraid to tell Meri about her first pregnancy
Robyn says she and Kody discussed at length how, and when, to tell the rest of their family about the new addition, and you can hear the trepidation in her voice as she finally tells Meri she's expecting.
Meri, of course, took it in stride, and the two embraced after talking about the news.
6. Robyn reveals her theory on why she's feuding with Christine
After the Season 5 finale, it was no secret that wife Christine had some misgivings about Kody taking on Robyn as a fourth wife. Robyn talks about the topic in the trailer.
"Things have been a little bit rocky between Christine and I," she says. "I think because she's perceived me as maybe coming in and throwing off her marriage with Kody."
But there's also a clip in the trailer of Robyn and Christine sweetly bonding over lunch, both admitting that they feel it's important for them to have a good relationship.
"I know when you were first coming into the family, one of my sisters said, 'So is Robyn going to be your bestie, then?' I said, 'Yeah!' and that didn't happen,'" Christine shares in a sad voice.
