On Sunday’s episode, TLC’s “Sister Wives” star Meri Brown told Robyn Brown that she was “really upset” that her former sister wife Christine Brown ended her “spiritual” marriage to Kody Brown and left the family to settle in. to settle Utah.

She also expressed frustration at not believing that Kody had fought hard enough in his failed romantic marriages.

Meri is Kody’s first wife, whom he met in 1989 and married in 1990. He was legally married to her until 2014 when they divorced so that he could legally adopt Robyn’s three children from another marriage.

In 2015, Meri became entangled in a catfishing scandal that caused her and Kody to become estranged from each other. As mentioned in past seasons of “Sister Wives,” the couple is no longer in a romantic marriage, but if it were up to Meri, they would. They are still “spiritually” married in the eyes of their faith.

While speaking to Robyn about the plight of their family, Meri told Robyn that Kody’s divorce from Christine (their “spiritual” marriage ended in 2021) felt “familiar” to her.

“And I’ve seen Kody give up on me and him,” she added.

Presumably in response to Meri’s comments, Kody told the cameras in his own solo interview, “I didn’t give up on Meri. It just turned out that the relationship was essentially unstable. I just didn’t feel like it was sustainable. It is not a functional relationship. And we can get along, but we can’t be together.”

Meri said in a solo interview that she had a bigger picture in mind than romance when she married Kody. “When I married Kody, it wasn’t just because I loved him. I felt like I had a confirmation from God that I should marry Kody — and I still feel it.”

She told Robyn she feels “at peace” with her decision to remain in a non-romantic marriage with Kody, saying she felt “betrayed” by Christine’s choice to leave.

“Sister Wives” airs Sundays at 10 p.m. on TLC.
