The couple have been shown rehashing the tough times in their marriage and eventually agreed that they were going to part.
“Okay, so we can get this out more because it’s true that I wasn’t attracted to you when we got married,” Cody said midway through the conversation. Kristen looked shocked as Cody continued. “I felt pressure to get married. I didn’t know the best time,” he said.
The former couple had a “spiritual” wedding on March 25, 1994. They both practice Mormon fundamentalism and Believes in the plural in time. Cody was legally married to his first wife, Mary, and spiritually married to his second wife, Janelle.

And she told Cody, “Marrying you has been a sadness. It has been a pain.” “Because I’ve tried for so long, it’s so hard to be what you need and do everything I can do to make it happen, so you want to be next to me.”
Cody responded in his one-on-one interview by saying that he had been heartbroken for “years” due to “Kristen’s complaints and hatred of polygamy”. He said the reason he didn’t feel “attracted” to her was because he felt “betrayed” by her.
