Kody and Meri Brown start their marriage again amid the couple’s ongoing marital problems.
In Sunday’s Sister Wives: Tell-All special, Kody and his four wives looked back on the relationship issues that led Meri to seek a relationship with a woman posing as a man, and how the subsequent discovery of her dalliance led to true they are today.
“What we had to do is discover our new baseline,” Kody told the host. “Every marriage has a baseline, and it changes gently over the years for most people. Well, Meri and I had an abrupt change. Different culture, different religious values, we may have just [got a divorce], but we have fortunate enough to be blessed to be part of a family that has its own culture, so we keep moving forward to work on it, steadily moving in a direction where we are just fully recovered. “
Meri did not fully agree that their change in dynamics was so sudden, and told her husband that while she “can look forward” to healing that gap, “I don’t feel we have an abrupt change, I I really don’t think its realization was probably abrupt, but I think it was like I wasn’t going in a positive direction for a long time before I realized it. “
Kody agreed that they had been on an unhealthy path for a while, but told Meri that they are working on themselves today: “This is like the new beginning.” The past is over. “
“You have to figure out a way to almost cut it off and just be dead,” Meri said of her ideas about her marriage before the scandal. “I honestly had to mourn what is gone.”
“Meri loves nostalgia,” Kody added. “I’m just looking into the future.”
“And I’m also looking for a future,” Meri told him. “I am, and I have a lot of hope for what could be.”
What is their status at the moment? “We’re dating,” Kody admitted. “We literally got to a place, it just got nasty and if not, we don’t do this anymore … I cut everything that was past. It’s a new date, it’s a new girlfriend, it’s a new person , but we have a history and we know each other too. “
