sister wives season 4 kody meri mariah 'Sister Wives': Separate houses put a strain on the wivesThe “Sister Wives” are feeling more like single moms now that they are split apart in four rental houses and everyone is dying to live closer together — except Meri, kind of, because she’s grown very accustomed to having privacy. It probably has a lot to do with the fact that she only has one child, so Meri is not surrounded by the craziness anymore, but the other sister wives still are.

It’s also affecting the kids because their dad is only around every fourth day. It’s hard for the Janelle with the teenage boys particularly, who need a firm dad figure around. In what is no surprise, Christine almost revels in Janelle’s teenage boy drama. Because Christine is the worst.

Meanwhile, Janelle is kind of rocking the individuality with her working out and wanting to sell real estate. But that also means she’s not really feeling the Sisterwife’s Closet business. Janelle doesn’t want to design jewelry, so Robyn wants her to design plus-sized clothing. But Janelle says she finds this to be more a hobby than a real business.

So, Meri and Robyn seem to want to plunge ahead with Sisterwife’s Closet, while Janelle and Christine want to pursue the real estate thing — except Christine hears about the time commitment for selling real estate and she decides she can’t do it, because again, Christine is the worst.

Eventually, Janelle and Robyn have a come-to-Jesus meeting about keeping Kody out of the business and only inviting Christine to the “fun things” because — do we need to repeat it?

And as it gets closer to the giant housing area being done, Meri wonders if she even wants another baby, because she’s about to be an empty nester and part of her is really excited about that.
