Technically, from my understanding, till Christine is bodily with one other man…she’s not divorced.”
Nevertheless, from Christine’s viewpoint, she had already left the religion, so she didn’t must abide by these tips. “I don’t have any authorized contract that binds me with Kody [since we’re just spiritually married],” she defined. “There was no authorized course of we needed to undergo. Neither of us are a part of that faith anymore, so me simply saying “I’m divorced,” I don’t see an issue with that in any respect.”

It feels prefer it delegitimizes the whole lot I’ve labored for for therefore lengthy.”
Christine was assured in her resolution, although. “After I selected to depart Kody, I knew I might be open publicly about it and this was resolution that I used to be making that different individuals would learn about,” she shared. “One of many issues I used to be involved about was if I might be thought of a fraud and a liar. However I do know, no doubt, that I’ve tried for years to make this work. I’ve a transparent conscience realizing I gave it my finest. If individuals wish to have a look at me and assume in any other case, okay. I can’t do something about that. Being a mother is my most vital factor. I couldn’t, with a transparent conscience, keep married to somebody who had favorites and made it very recognized and somebody who was breaking my children’ hearts. I needed to stand with them as an alternative. I needed to do it for them.”
