During a tearful confessional, Robyn expressed how ridiculous it was for her family to believe she was to blame for the tough rules.
The 43-year-old said her husband is not one to “have a wife come in and tell him what to do.” Although many have tried to be, Kody also previously yelled at the cameras that he has no head wife.
Janelle considers some of Kody’s rules extreme and mentioned she would not be home for Thanksgiving. Christine noted she might be away too.
All these difficulties made Robyn confess that the foundation her family was built on ‘is crumbling.” Robyn and Meri also had a teary conversation after the meeting.
Robyn admitted their husband’s rules are stringent, but they can now hang around each other on the bright side.
