In a preview for the 16th season premiere (via PEOPLE) airing on Sunday, November 2 , the family — which includes Kody's three other wives Meri Brown, Janelle Brown and Robyn Brown — sat down to discuss plans for their shared Arizona property. But Christine, 49, seemed to not be as engaged in the conversation.
"Christine is upset. I understand it," Robyn, 43, explained in the clip. "It's scary, it's been absolutely scary, what our family culture is looking like because we are not spending time together."
"I don't know that this is something that fixes itself right away so don't be thinking it's all gone and it's all put to bed or whatever," Janelle, 52, said in support of Christine. She continued cautiously, "I want to honor where you are."

Kody's mind appeared to be elsewhere as he stuck to the topic at hand, rather than discussing anyone's feelings. "We have to get all the property boundaries figured out though, that we have to do because we have to be able to move on that," he said. "We don't want to wait any longer."
"This whole thing is hard, it's not just about moving back to Utah, it's not just about that," Christine — who has now moved into a $1.1 million Utah duplex — said. "I'm not going to make any drastic decisions on what I'm going to do next today — I am hurt today."
"I really needed [Kody's] support, I really did," the now-single TV personality continued. "Marriage is hard, but I never wanted the kind of marriage that I have now. I never wanted to be so estranged and have extremely limited physical contact, not even hand holding."
"It's sad, my marriage to Kody is sad," Christine solemnly revealed in the sneak peek.
On November 2, the former couple announced that their marriage was coming to an end. “After more than 25 years together, Kody and I have grown apart and I have made the difficult decision to leave,” Christine wrote in a note posted to Instagram.
Kody echoed her sentiments in a messge that read, “Christine’s decision to leave comes with a great deal of sadness. We enjoyed many years together and I have a large amount of respect and admiration for her."
