Sister Wives’ Meri Brown says she’s ‘not the one who is going to give up’ on marriage to Kody as their ‘issues’ heat up
SISTER Wives star Meri Brown said she’s “not the one who is going to give up” on her marriage to Kody Brown.
The 50-year-old is determined to keep the spark in her marriage alive as their “issues” heat up.
The Sister Wives star spoke about the current state of her troubled marriage during a recent interview with People.
She told the outlet: “I think that all relationships, you know, have issues that they have to work through. And I think that’s just kind of where we’re at right now.
“For me personally, I’m not one that’s going to give up.”
Meri added: “I’m just going to keep at it, you know? Ebb and flows in the relationship … I think that’s just kind of normal.”
Also during the interview, Meri said she and Kody were “in a place where we’re just figuring out where we are and, you know, what is happening.”
Kody, 52, legally married Meri in 1990, though he convinced her to divorce him so he could marry the newest addition, Robyn, 42, in 2014.
Despite their official split, the reality star considers himself married to Meri, Christine, Janelle, and Robyn spiritually.
Meri and Kody share 25-year-old daughter Mariah.
The couple’s marital problems have been documented on the TLC show, as a recent episode showed Meri admitting she was “really lonely” in their relationship.
During Sunday’s episode, the polygamist’s first wife explained she has seen him very rarely since Covid broke out and told viewers that her life has become “lonely.”
She explained: “They say that a person needs four hugs a day just to survive. People probably are not getting four hugs a day right now.
“I love hugs and touch, from the appropriate person, you know what I mean?
“And when you don’t have that, it feels really, really lonely.”
Reflecting on her relationship with Kody, Meri continued: “I’m really careful about pushing Kody because I don’t want him to feel like I’m being demanding or pushy or anything like that.
“You know, I don’t know what Kody is going to be doing after the two-week quarantine. I don’t know what his plans are — I can’t speak to that, honestly.”

She admitted Kody regularly visits her fellow sister wives, though shared he doesn’t come by her house unless their daughter is home from Chicago.
Meri said: “He doesn’t typically come to my house very often. Maybe now that Mariah and Audrey are here, he might come and visit with them at the end of the two weeks.
“But he basically is just going to be going between Janelle and Christine and Robyn, that’s typically what he does. Just calling it like it is.”
