Sister Wives patriarch Kody Brown and his first wife Meri Brown have been in a “dark place” for a long time. Although both have continued to be together, their relationship no longer seems to be normal. Aside from constant fights and disagreements, the TLC stars have also stopped seeing each other.
In fact, the COVID-19 pandemic has brought much more distance between the couple than there ever was. Kody Brown recently agreed to see Mariah Brown’s mom only “once in a blue moon.” On the other hand, Meri Brown reveals that she’s “really lonely.” So, here’s a detailed look at everything that’s been going on.
The relationship between Kody Brown and Meri Brown, who have been together for over three decades, is now almost non-existent. The head of the Brown family legally divorced his first wife to marry his fourth bride, Robyn, in 2014. Since then, the couple has faced some serious issues. In fact, they previously agreed that the two have been “a dark place” for a long time.
On the other hand, in a previous episode, Meri Brown confessed to their therapist that her relationship with him is dead and done. However, despite this, Kody Brown and Meri Brown defended that they do not want to separate.
Kody said he would not divorce either of his wives, but they are open to leaving if they wish. While, Meri Brown said she doesn’t want a divorce and will try to figure out “a new normal” with her spouse.
However, in a shocking revelation to Us Weekly, Kody Brown revealed that he has now become much more distant from his first wife. In fact, the couple hardly ever see each other. Kody Brown talked about how there is nothing between him and Meri Brown.
However, she does interact with the rest of the family during vacations and birthdays, and they do get together from time to time. The father of 18 went on to say that he only sees Meri Brown once in a while. In fact, they have now “stopped hanging out” and he doesn’t even call her anymore. According to the looks, fans might witness their separation in the near future.
Sister Wives: Meri Feels ‘Really Really Lonely’ Amid The Pandemic
Well, Meri Brown didn’t say that Kody Brown makes her feel lonely. However, she does talk about the social estrangement during the pandemic. The 50-year-old Sister Wives celebrity quotes, “They say that a person needs four hugs a day to survive.”
However, she says people are not getting four hugs every day right now in the pandemic. Meri misses the physical touch, the Brown family tries to fit into the social distancing guidelines. Then, referring to the importance of physical contact, she expresses that it feels “very, very lonely when you don’t have it.”
Speculation has it that Meri Brown and her daughter Mariah were alone during most of the pandemic. Recently, some rumors have claimed that Kody Brown spent the lockdown with his fourth wife, Robyn Brown.
Well, now that we know that Janelle had asked to stay away from her home, there is a chance that those rumors are true. So, this could be one of the reasons why Meri has been lonely despite having a husband and a huge family.
