Sister Wives spoilers and updates show that quarantining with one partner can be stressful and we know that many relationships suffered in the new world situation, so how much would this affect a blended family?
People got to see how Sister Wives actor Kody Brown, his 4 wives and 18 children coped with the stress of being locked up and how they managed life.
But things seemed to spiral out of control, despite therapy sessions and repeated conversations to address the family’s problems. Kody Brown had previously said that he did not feel he had the right to leave his wife, although any woman can choose at any time to leave him and go her own way.
At the beginning of the pandemic, some ground rules were laid down for family members to communicate with each other. Kody Brown’s wives Christine, Janelle, Meri and Robyn all had to live with their families in separate houses, and Kody Brown is the only one allowed to visit any of them.
But it seems that even with this arrangement, disagreements between Kody Brown and his wives always arise.
According to Kody Brown, each house is run by her mother, and she feels that she does not have a say in what goes on in the household, as she normally should. Another disagreement he has with his wives is that they all have an idea of what his schedule should be and he just hates being controlled and doesn’t want it.
Sister Wives: Kody and Meri’s Conflict
There has been conflict between Meri Brown and Kody Brown for some time and this escalated with a recent disagreement she has with Kody Brown over land ownership and building near the lake.
Kody Brown insisted that the “family” did not agree with him building so close to the lake, while Meri Brown claimed she had no idea these negotiations were taking place.
Their relationship first went downhill in 2015 when Meri Brown was involved in a cat scandal, and since then Kody’s attitude towards Meri Brown has always been tinged with coldness. But Meri seems to be very patient, much to the chagrin of her fans. In a social media post, she shared a quote that sort of alludes to her decision to give herself and Kody Brown some space for a while. “Give people time. Give people space. Don’t beg anyone to stay. Let them roam. What’s meant for you will always be yours.”
Meri Brown has tried her best to patch up the strained relationship between her and her husband, even retracting her earlier statement that her relationship with Kody Brown is “dead” and “over”. In a recent interview, Meri Brownclarified that she did not mean to say it that way.
She’s also been having online chats with friends, which her Sister Wives fans cheerfully approve of, and using it to spread positivity and love, rather than the secretive broken-hearted quotes she used to share.
