Tonight on Seeking Sister Wife, Danielle and Garrick packed their items in the camper to shift into their new home. They spoke about Lea deciding not to be their sister-wife and seemed very tense about the whole ordeal.

Danielle began to cry about the whole experience, but Seeking Sister Wife fans were happy that Lea decided to opt out of the relationship and felt that she deserved better.

Lea is an independent single mother who was raised in a ‘plural’ family. Professionally, she is a nurse. Danielle and Garrick thought Lea was the perfect potential sister-wife and had visited her in California where she lived.

Lea felt that Garrick’s expectations of a wife were way too homely for her. She said that she did not have a choice in the relationship and felt that it was always supposed to be "Garrick’s way or the highway." Their third sister-wife Roberta was very happy with Lea’s decision.

Garrick and Danielle, however, were upset and talked about the struggles of finding a sister-wife. The couple then shifted their focus from Lea to Roberta, who had still not picked up her passport and visa from the office.

Seeking Sister Wife fans applauded Lea's decision to drop the polygamous relationship with the Merrifields and said that she could find a better man than Garrick.
