Christine Brown Says Her Marriage To Kody Is ‘Sad’

Christine Brown’s marital woes with now-ex Kody Brown appear to be at the center of upcoming season of sister women.

In PEOPLE’s exclusive sneak peek of the premiere episode, airing Sunday on TLC, Kody, 52, sits down with his four wives – Christine, Meri, Janelle and Robyn – to discuss their property in Flagstaff, Arizona.

However, Christine still wishes Kody to agree to move the family back to Utah and admits that she is struggling in her marriage to him. (Since the filmed season, Christine and Kody have announced their split after 25 years together).

“Christine is upset. I understand,” an emotional Robyn, 43, tells the cameras in the clip. “It’s scary, it was absolutely scary, what our family culture is like because we don’t spend time together.”

In their group chat, Janelle, 52, similarly acknowledges Christine’s feelings.

“I don’t know if this is something that will resolve itself right away, so don’t think it’s all gone and it’s all been put to bed or whatever,” she says. “I want to honor where you are.”

However, Kody is focused on figuring out how they will build on their Arizona property. “However, we have to invent all the property boundaries, we have to do that, because we have to be able to move forward with that,” he says. “We don’t want to wait any longer.”

Though she doesn’t respond to Kody at all, Christine, 49, tells the cameras she’s “injured.”

“This whole thing is hard. It’s not just about going back to Utah, it’s not just about that,” she says. “I’m not going to make any drastic decisions about what I’m going to do today — I’m hurt today.”

“Marriage is difficult, but I never wanted the kind of marriage I have now,” she continues. “I never wanted to be so estranged and have extremely limited physical contact, not even holding a hand.”

“It’s sad, my marriage to Kody is sad,” Christine concludes.

The new season of sister women premieres Sunday (10 p.m. ET) on TLC.
