‘Sister Wives’ star Kody Brown warns against going ‘over 3 wives’ after being married to 4 women at once

“Sister Wives” star Kody Brown thinks having four wives is one too many.

“I don’t advise people marry and go over three wives,” he said in an interview with People published Sunday.

“I’m not an advocate of plural marriage, but I’ve had my own experience in it and I’ve had my own failures in it. Because of that, I’m like, you got to be really, really wise about who is doing it, how they’re doing it,” he added.

Brown offered “some things” that keep a plural marriage strong.

“If you know people very very, very well, maybe it’ll work,” he said, but conceded that there are marriages that “have people who know each other very, very, very well, and they still don’t work.”

Brown, who will turn 55 next month, admitted that he doesn’t “have the answers.”

“When I was 25, I had no experience and all the answers. Now I’m 55 and I have all the experience and zero answers,” he concluded.

The TLC series follows Kody and his relationship with his four current and former wives — Christine, Janelle, Meri and Robyn — as well as their combined 18 children.

But these days, the reality star is down to just one wife.

Christine left the family in November 2021 and was followed by Janelle a year later.

Christine revealed that for many years her marriage to Kody lacked intimacy.

“It was, like, five times in one year,” she told Heather McDonald in a “Juicy Scoop” podcast episode this month.

“There’s sex and then there’s intimacy. What we didn’t have was intimacy,” the 51-year-old explained.

“The intimacy itself had been gone for years.”

Kody broke up with Meri in 2022 after 32 years together.

Meri was irked that Kody “made the decision” to dissolve their union.

The former couple share one child – 26-year-old Leon – who came out as transgender in June, 2022.

Kody remains married to Robyn and shared his thoughts on monogamy on an episode of “Sister Wives: One on One,” explaining that he “wouldn’t be interested” in seeking another wife.

“I would have to tell that woman I will never love you as much as I love her,” he said of his relationship with Robyn. “Now I know better.”
