Sister Wives star Meri Brown reveals a breakup with Kody Brown, but it’s a lot more complicated than just a man and his bride calling it quits. For lack of a better term, TLC stars Meri Brown and Kody Brown have “split” when it comes to their marital relationship. Kody Brown himself has said that he is no longer living with Meri. Now Meri Brown sheds more light on where this Sister Wives couple stands today.
With the new season of Sister Wives releasing tonight, fans get a sense of where Meri Brown and Kody Brown stand in the scheme of things. All the turmoil from last season seems to be present in the new season 15. But the first bride of the family explained a few things before the first episode aired.
When the new Sister Wives trailer appeared, it showed a few different clips of both this husband and his first bride. Kody Brown described how sex and romance are reserved for people in love. Meri stated that she cannot make Kody Brown love her.From this alone, it seemed that Meri Brown was still trying to salvage her marriage to Kody. But it also seemed that the brick wall of rejection from the Sister Wives patriarch remained in place.
Sister Wives: Navigating a Split
In a traditional marriage, a divorce usually means that the couple resides separately. The children either sleep with one parent or take turns with both, spending half their time with each parent. But this Sister Wives marriage consists of more than a husband and children; his other three wives are also part of his family.
Meri Brown and Kody Brown already live separately and share an adult child together, so no custody issues come into play. It seems that since the couple already lives separately, there wasn’t much to divide, geographically speaking.
The matriarch of Sister Wives stays with the family. A separation for them appears much more complicated than in a traditional marriage. Like, who gets custody of Christine, Janelle and Robyn Brown?
