Sister Wives star Kody Brown has a lot of things going on in his household. The polygamous husband of Meri, Janelle, Christine, and Robyn Brown is facing four times the struggle during the pandemic.

Separation has been one of the biggest problems for the Brown family ever since they moved to Flagstaff. But their already stressful situation got even worse after the pandemic hit. Will they be able to handle it?

Sister Wives: Kody Brown and His Wives Struggle With the Pandemic

On the latest episode of Sister Wives Season 15, Kody Brown visited his mother in Wyoming for her birthday. But the happy reunion was quickly overshadowed with fear and skepticism. Apparently, Kody felt like people in her mother's hometown are not ready for the pandemic, thus increasing the risk of infection.

Meanwhile, back in Flagstaff, things started getting out of hand as COVID-19 cases spiked. Robyn Brown immediately told Kody about the alarming news, prompting him to rush back home.

As the pandemic continues, stricter protocols were put in place to help flatten the curve of infections. The Sister Wives star was left with no choice but to limit his visits to his other wives. This definitely added to the stress of the polygamous family.
