Sister Wives star Meri Brown says she is “focusing on the good” in the midst of a family breakdown. The Brown family has been in turmoil for some time and Sister Wives fans got a glimpse into their struggles last season on the show.
Since leaving Las Vegas and moving to Flagstaff, Kody Brown’s four wives have been living separately, acting as four separate families rather than one polygamous family. The news of Christine Brown’s separation from Kody after 27 years of marriage came as no undue shock to Sister Wives fans who saw how unhappy Christine was in her plural marriage.
Kody Brown’s other three wives, Meri, Janelle and Robyn Brown, have remained silent about Christine’s separation, but Meri is making no secret of the fact that she is doing well amidst the family breakdown.
Meri Brown took to Instagram on Thursday 18 November to share a long and encouraging post with her fans in which she said she was grateful for her life.
The 50-year-old TLC star looked happy and healthy in the selfie she shared, where she wore an Aztec-patterned top and a serious face, taking advantage of the room’s good lighting.
Sister Wives: Meri Brown and Kody Brown’s Marriage Issues
Meri and Kody Brown have not lived as a married couple for some time. Last season, they admitted that they “are not a couple” and do not share intimacy in their now strictly clerical marriage. A source close to the family revealed that Meri Brown will next make a statement about Kody’s separation, now that Christine has shown Kody the way to other women. Meri Brown was apparently the only one of Christine’s former sisters to publicly acknowledge Christine’s separation from Kody.
Meri Brown shared an uplifting quote on her Instagram Stories shortly after Christine Brown’s announcement, seemingly showing her support for her now-former sister’s wife. According to another source close to the family, Meri Brown hasn’t been treated “well” by Kody for some time.
On social media, Meri has put on a carefree facade. Some Sister Wives fans think that Meri has already broken up with Kody as she has moved on with her life, travelling and spending time with friends.
