  • Christine Brown told People that though her marriage to Kody ended, that doesn't mean they failed.

  • "Our goal was to raise incredible children, and we did," she said.

  • The exes share six biological children together, ranging in age from 13 to 28.

In a new interview, "Sister Wives" star Christine Brown explained why she doesn't consider her "spiritual" marriage to her ex Kody a failure, even though they announced they were separating after more than 25 years together in November 2021.

"Just because I left, it doesn't mean we failed," the 51-year-old told People. "Our goal was to raise incredible children, and we did. It was a success for us."

Brown became Kody's third wife in March 1994, and less than a year later they welcomed their first child, daughter Aspyn, together. Her biological children with Kody are Aspyn, 28, Mykelti, 27, Paedon, 25, Gwendlyn, 21, Ysabel, 20, and Truely, 13.

Brown told People that since she split from Kody and left the family's home state of Arizona to settle down back in Utah, the whole Brown family has experienced a lot of "change." After she left Kody, two of his remaining three wives — Janelle and Meri — left him as well, leaving the father of 18 with only one wife, Robyn.

Brown has also moved on romantically. In February 2023, she announced via Instagram that she had found a new love, David Woolley. Two months later, the couple revealed their engagement.

"David treats me like a queen and tells me I'm beautiful every day," she told People about her new relationship at the time. "I've never been in love like this before, and the world seems like a brighter place with him in it."

Season 18 of "Sister Wives" premieres Sunday, August 20 at 10 p.m. ET on TLC.
