The January 23 Episode of ‘Sister Wives’ Might Hint at the Reason Christine & Kody Finally Split After 25 Years

In a teaser clip, revealed via People for the January 23 episode, we see tensions between the couple rising as Christine reveals Kody has given her some life-altering news.

“He goes, ‘I’m not interested in having an intimate marriage anymore. I don’t like your behavior. We’ll see if you can be a good sister wife,’ and all this,” says Christine. “I’m like, ‘Okay, so you don’t want us to have an intimate marriage?’ And he goes, ‘No.’ I’m like, ‘That’s not enough for me. I can’t not have an intimate marriage.'”

Christine went on to explain the emotions she felt when Kody revealed he was no longer attracted to her.

“I’m heartbroken,” she said. “My heart’s shattered, to be honest with you. It’s over. The intimate part of our marriage is over. And to be honest, I’m not okay with that. I’m not okay with staying in a marriage where there’s no intimacy. That’s not a real marriage. I’m not interested in a half marriage or a partial marriage or whatever we have.”

Christine has since moved to Utah, an idea she proposed to the family but was ultimately outvoted.

On November 2, 2021, Cody expresses his feeling about the split via an Instagram post.

“Christine’s decision to leave comes with a great deal of sadness,” he wrote on Instagram. “We enjoyed many years together and I have a large amount of respect and admiration for her. Although we are moving forward on different paths, we will always remain committed parents.”
