Janelle Brown has “pondered” whether she wants to stay in plural marriage

Sister Wives Star Janelle Brown wonders if plural marriage is right for her.

In PEOPLE’s exclusive look at Sunday’s episode, Janelle, 52, has a social-distancing outdoor encounter with Robyn Brown. The two discuss how the Brown family’s issues have become more apparent amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“COVID kind of took that blanket off some of our issues,” says Robyn, 43, while Janelle responds, “I think so too.”

Janelle then confesses to Robyn that due to the continuing division within the family, she has started to reconsider what’s best for her going forward – this includes rethinking her relationship with her longtime husband, Kody. Brown.

“Over the past few weeks, I’ve really caught myself thinking and thinking, ‘Okay, listen: do I always choose plural marriage? “” said Janelle. “Yes, I always choose it, but I had to make this conscious decision with myself.”

Responding to Janelle, Robyn said, “It gave me a lot to think about, for sure.”

“I really wanna work this shit out,” Robyn adds, referring to family issues. “Like, really, really.”

Janelle and Robyn are both married to Kody. The patriarch of the Brown family, 50, is also in a polygamous deal with Meri Brown.

Ahead of the TLC hit Season 16 premiere, third wife Christine Brown announced her split from Kody on Instagram. They have been together for 25 years.

The wives went through many difficult times with Kody in season 16 of Sister Wives, especially Janelle and Christine.

Regarding Janelle’s own issues with Kody, she ran away in a recent episode and told her partner to “f — off”. The couple had argued over the family’s various Thanksgiving plans amid the COVID-19 pandemic, which led Janelle to feel as if Kody was trying to “blame” her for choosing to spend the vacation with only his children.

Sister Wives Airs Sundays at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
