Janelle may not be ready for a new romance just yet, but the same can't be said for her other sister wives who left Kody. Christine Brown, who announced in November 2021 that she was leaving Kody, is getting ready to walk down the aisle.

After debuting her relationship with David Woolley on Valentine's Day, Christine announced last month that her boyfriend of less than one year popped the question. Christine and David haven't been shy about flaunting their love for each other since going public, however, some of her family members are not exactly on board with her whirlwind romance.

"It doesn't make sense to her. I don't think she's, like, maliciously against Christine, it's just hard for her to understand."
