Christine Brown and David Woolley get married: A look back at their relationship

Over the course of her 17 seasons (and counting) of "Sister Wives," Christine Brown has given TLC viewers an intimate look inside her life as a member of a plural marriage. There has been joy, children, plenty of strife and, most recently, a rather tense divorce.

Season 18 of the show premiered in August and follows the aftermath of Christine and Kody Brown's breakup and the strained relationships with his three other wives.

There's lots of drama ahead for viewers, but in the present, Christine has clearly moved on.

In April, she announced that she was engaged to the new love of her life, David Woolley. On Oct. 7, Christine and David got married.

January 2024: Christine says she pursued David

During a "Sister Wives" wedding special that aired in January 2024, Christine recalled how she initiated the relationship with David.

"I stalked him. I found him and his profile was awesome so I found him online and it was all these great pictures. Sign me up for all of that. So I messaged him," she said.

David then explained that they started texting back and forth and Christine suggested that they meet in person.

"I went, 'Oh hey, she's aggressive,'" he joked.

"You know, I know what I want. I go for it," Christine replied.

Later in the episode, Christine offered some more insight into the timeline of her relationship with David. The topic came up when her daughter Mykelti Padron teased her that it was "a little soon" for her to get married since she'd only known David for a year.

Mykelti then explained that she met her husband Tony Padron years ago in October and and they got engaged just months later, in March of the following year. They wanted to get married in August, but Christine told them they hadn't known each other long enough.

“I’ve been telling everybody we met a year ago but it’s not true. We met 11 months ago and I told all of my kids that we met a year ago. Shh! Don't tell my children cause I told them they had to wait a year," Christine said in a confessional interview.

During the episode, Christine also acknowledged that her romance with David got serious very quickly.

"This has gone fast. It's gone fast. When I started dating, I wasn't ready to settle down. I was just gonna have fun," she said.

Christine actually had a second date lined up the same day she met David for the first time, and she quickly cancelled it after realizing how well she got along with him.

"After I met David, I cancelled the date with the other guy and I called my matchmaker and I just said, 'I'm done. I don't need your help anymore. So I found him," she said.

David also said he was equally excited to find his better half.

"I know 110% that it's the right thing to get married. I feel like I've found my unicorn where it's something that I didn't think I could touch but in reality I can, and it's awesome," he said.
