Sister Wives’ die-hard fans, your curiosity is about to be satiated. Meri Brown, the eternal topic of TLC discussions, has finally opened up about why she stayed hitched to Kody Brown for as long as she did. And the revelations are nothing short of jaw-dropping. But that’s not all; she also called out Kody for wanting her to lie to the public.
Sister Wives: Why Did Meri Brown Stick Around?
If you’ve been following Sister Wives through its rollercoaster of emotions, relationships, and family drama, you know Meri Brown has always been a subject of intrigue. From being labeled as delusional to being criticized for her life choices, Meri has heard it all from the fans and haters alike. But what kept her with Kody all these years?
According to a recent preview for Season 18 by E! News, Meri confessed that she believed her marriage was “literally…an eternal covenant.” Talk about commitment! However, when Kody told her, “I’m just not interested. You can stick around if you want,” that was her breaking point.
And no, she wasn’t sticking around for Kody. Meri clarified that she wanted to spend time with Robyn’s kids and to be a part of the family. Yes, contrary to popular belief, her reason for staying was not a blind commitment to a man who had long since checked out of their relationship.
Sister Wives: Meri Calls Out Kody
As if staying in a loveless marriage wasn’t enough, Kody added another layer of complexity to the dynamic. Meri Brown revealed that she had approached Kody to be “real open and honest” about their situation. After all, their lives have been under the public eye, and fans deserved to know the truth.
Kody’s reaction? A flat-out refusal. According to Meri, he said, “No, I don’t want to do that.” Kody wanted to keep things under wraps and even encouraged her to be a part of this lie. He expressed that he had “so much criticism” already and didn’t want to add fuel to the fire. Essentially, he wanted to maintain a facade while life at home was anything but picture-perfect.
For years, fans have wondered, speculated, and even judged Meri for her seemingly inexplicable commitment to Kody. Now, the veil has been lifted. Meri is living her life, seemingly happier and more content than she’s been in years.
