Christine and Kody Brown both grew up in a polygamous family and RadarOnline.com has exclusive photos of them before they were “miserable” reality stars!
Before she was wife #2, Christine Allred was a fresh-faced teenager. She grew up in the Apostolic United Brethren sect of the Latter Day Saints in a polygamous family. This exclusive photo of Kody’s “spiritual wife” was shared by her maternal aunt Kristyn Decker, who told Radar that she doesn’t believe Christine is “happy” in her plural marriage.
Before he lost his hair! Kody Brown is the patriarch of the Sister Wives family and the father of 18 children by his four wives.
Decker, who appeared on the TLC show only to be harangued by Christine for her decision to leave her own polygamous marriage, is related to the reality star through marriage. Decker and Christine’s mother, Annie, became stepsisters when Annie’s mother, Anna, married Decker’s father, Owen Allred. “Annie was a really good mom and her children had everything they needed and wanted,” Decker told Radar about Christine’s mom.
“I call it ‘miserable happiness,’” Decker previously told Radar about the way she believes Kody’s wives feel in their polygamous home. “That truly describes those that were in polygamist marriages and those that left. I think they are just miserable and the show started showing it.”
There is a lack of connection between the women,” Decker previously claimed about Kody and Meri, Christine, Janelle and Robyn Brown. “They don’t know where to stand when they’re talking about their relationship with the other women. They don’t get the quality time they want with their husband. Neither do the children. The spousal connection isn’t there. They are happy because they believe they are serving God or their God. But it is miserable happiness.”
“I think the Browns are precious people. They are just misled like I was,” Decker told Radar. “They were born and raised with it polygamy. They are not representing the majority of polygamy.”
As Radar previously reported, Decker believes the family faked their polygamy prosecution fears, amping up the drama of the move to Las Vegas just for ratings for the show.
