‘Sister Wives’: Kody Claims He Did Not Abandon His Wife Meri

Sister Wives star Kody Brown insists that he did not abandon his wife Meri while fans urge his first wife to call it quits.

Kody Brown from Sister Wives agreed to divorce his wife in 2014, enabling him to legally marry his fourth wife, Robyn. Moreover, he could legally adopt Robyn’s children as well.

The initial part of the Sister Wives sit-down revolved around the family discussing Meri’s cat-fishing drama. Next off, Kody told the special’s host Sukanya Krishnan of Meri: “… there was a hardness in our marriage that was so difficult and so antagonistic that I didn’t know why we were in it.

“… it took a lot of counseling for me to finally go, ‘Meri, I just don’t see us back together.”

“Why not leave her?,” Sukanya asked. Kody responds, “it’s a double standard. They can leave whenever they want. I can’t.”

Sukanya said: “It’s not a double standard because you emotionally have left and abandoned in some ways.”

“Abandoned? Please!” Kody raged. “Take the word back because I take offense to that word of ‘abandonment.'”

“When Meri had an affair she was leaving my a**! She made it clear to everyone that she was getting out of there… and she can’t admit it now.

“She was leaving me for a better, richer man,” he added.

Fans Urge Meri To Leave The Relationship

Taking to Twitter, fans advised Meri, 51, to leave the relationship. “Meri, your relationship is over with Kody- he is clearly saying it to the world. You deserve to be in a loving relationship,” one fan wrote.

Another added, “Please leave, Meri! He said he doesn’t want you!” while a third chimed in, “Meri, get out now!”

Despite fans urging her to exit the relationship, Meri is still hopeful that things will turn around after all these years, and she’s still “committed.”

“Do you feel there is a future for you and Kody as a married couple in full fellowship together?” Sukanya asked Meri.

Meri responded: “I want there to be… I love him… I just feel peace when I think about staying in the family because that’s what I want.”

Later in the special, Kody said, “I’m never going to be in a conjugal relationship with her.”

Further in the episode, Meri revealed that she and Kody “haven’t had sex in a decade.”

 “There’s a point where intimacy is just damaged. It’s misleading to have intimacy in a relationship where there is no real safety, I’m not going there,” Kody explained.

Christine Decides To Walk Away

In addition to Meri, and Robyn, Kody is also in a relationship with Janelle. However, his third wife, Christine, separated from him in November.

“After more than 25 years together, Kody and I have grown apart and I have made the difficult decision to leave,” Christine said.

“We will continue to be a strong presence in each other’s lives as we parent our beautiful children and support our wonderful family.”

According to a report by the Us Weekly, Kody is also likely to lose Janelle, 52. A source told the publication that “Janelle meant it when [she] said she would leave Kody. It’s going to happen.”

  1. Kody only want a submissive woman that thinks he is everything. At this point, if he were really a man, he would admit he only wants Robyn and is tired if dealing with the rest. Even his older kids. My heart broke when the 2 sons poured their hearts out to him about how they felt and he only hot defensive and never even apologized or validated their feelings. Not even a hug or love ya. Janelle should kick him to the curb toi

    Kody did leave Meti when that was when she dided. him the most. I hope they all leave him and sobin robin gets tired of him and leaves him too. Or he finds another wife and teats sobin robin the same way as he did his other wives. This is what robin wanted

  3. The old saying of, “You can fool some of the people some of the time, some of the people all of the time….. etc, but really, Kody, you shoved Meri aside like she was a dead leaf on your sidewalk or stepped on her when you wanted to divorce her. You can say that it was so that you could adopt Robyn’s children, but you know that is a lie! You did not want Meri to be your wife anymore and you moved on. You know, you really disgust me to think of all the years Meri gave you and for you to stab her in the back so quickly without a glance back! Meri is holding on and I for one can see why. Deep down she feels like she means absolutely nothing in this family by the one person that was her life for so long. The damage you did to her goes deep and you never address it. You are a selfish person. I pray that Meri will go to that deep place and find the root of this need to stick around. She has so much going for herself.
