As Sister Wives fans know, Kody Brown and Meri Brown’s marriage is deteriorating and slowly breaking up.
However, things have recently taken a turn for the worse for the couple and now they hardly see each other anymore.
As fans know, the TLC reality show has run into the COVID-19 pandemic, which is adding to the strains in the plural family situation. This is especially true for Kody Brown and Meri Brown.
In a sneak peek from the Sunday, March 21 episode of Sister Wives, Kody Brown, says, “There’s just been nothing going on between me and Meri.” She said she interacts with the family on vacations and birthdays and they get together once in a while.
However, Kody Brown added that he sees Meri “once in a blue moon” and that they have stopped dating. Brown went on to admit that he stopped calling Meri Brown, to make plans.
For Meri Brown’s part, the coronavirus pandemic is taking its toll. In fact, the distance between her and Kody Brown has become more apparent during this difficult time. In a confessional interview in the teaser video, she says, “They say that a person needs four hugs a day just to survive.” Meri Brown added that people are probably not getting four hugs a day right now. Meri Brown said when you don’t get them, it gets really lonely. With the family conforming to social distancing guidelines, everyone is losing physical contact.
Sister Wives: Kody Brown and Meri Brown’s Marriage
It’s never easy for Kody Brown to navigate each of his marriages, but in the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s even harder. Because of this, Meri Brown feels neglected by her husband. In the teaser, she says that he doesn’t usually come to her house very often. She added, “He basically is just going to be going between Janelle, Christine and Robyn. That’s typically what he does.”
However, despite their problems, Meri Brown is not ready to give up on the relationship. She says the way she sees it is a matter of, “Am I going to be with him when he’s going through a dark time? She asks if they are going to work it out because they have made a commitment.
However, Meri Brown also asks, “How do we move forward with where we’re at? … This is where I made the commitment. And this is where I am.”
