Christine, who gave birth to daughter Truely only months before, revealed the wedding and honeymoon came as she was suffering from postpartum depression.

"Kody and Robyn's courtship came at a time of huge personal upheaval,” Christine admitted. “I was pregnant with Truely, and we had also entered new and uncharted territory as we began filming Sister Wives for TLC. When Kody started courting and then married Robyn it really rocked me. I gave birth to Truely and was suffering from extreme postpartum depression. I'd never thought I'd feel such a sense of loss and such crippling jealousy, I thought I was better and stronger than that, I really did."

She continued that she “lost” her identity.

“I couldn't see myself as Kody's wife,” she said. “Instead I felt inconsequential, as if I'd been pushed to the side."

Meri struggled as well, as she wrote in the book, “Of course, there are still some moments during that first season that, while interesting to the public, I have chosen not to watch, one of those being the honeymoon episode,” Meri wrote. “Kody, Robyn, and I have made such progress in our relationships that I worry seeing them in such a romantic setting might set me back a few steps."

Christine responded in her confessional, “The sister wives relationship is super tricky because you’re trying to be best friends with the woman who has a relationship with your husband."
