To many fans of the show Sister Wives, the relationship between Meri and Kody Brown has grown increasingly distant. In fact, many of the shows viewers believe that it is possible Meri could be leaving the Brown family very soon. Clues have been heavily featured in the show over the last few seasons, and a lot of people think both Meri and Kody are over the relationship.
The couple has been married since 1990, about 30 years now. Could this be the end?
In a new teaser for Sunday’s episode of Sister Wives, Meri says, “Our relationship has been pretty rocky. People ask me all the time why I don’t leave.” Even a glance at social media can demonstrate this is true. Many of Meri’s followers have been encouraging her to leave the family, some for years.
Kody also expresses his feelings, saying that because he and Meri married quickly and young, “I didn’t know who I was marrying.” Kody also has a variety of followers who support his arguments.
Sometimes we perform emotional/needs/wants "triage" for family conflicts in schedule. When you are supposed to be in 2 or 3 places at the same time "rock-paper-scissors" doesn't cut it.#SisterWives

In the upcoming episode, viewers can expect to see Meri and Kody visiting a marriage therapist. Meri says, “The relationship between he and I is gone. It’s dead. It’s over.” Kody follows that with, “I am just done with hearing how I am wrong.”
This comes after Kody is seen yelling at his other wives about Meri’s behavior over the years. In a previous episode, Kody yells that Meri always has to get her way. This also comes years after Meri was allegedly having an online affair with a catfish.
While Meri is the first wife in the family, she and Kody got a legal divorce in 2014. They divorced so that Kody could marry fourth wife Robyn and legally adopt her three children. While this was something Meri was on board with, she did express having some sadness.
All of this leads many viewers to wonder if Meri could be setting up to leave the family. They also wonder if she would stay in Flagstaff with the family or move to her bed and breakfast in Utah.
Instagram user cwhroh said, “She says people ask her often why she does not leave? They ask often probably because she NEVER looks happy, NEVER smiles.” In recent segments of the show, people have remarked that Meri does not seem to be part of the family in ways the other three wives are.
User homeinspiration39 said, “I wish Meri would move out and start her own life[,] there’s a lot of negativity around her.”
In the new episode of the TLC show, viewers will see if the couple can make any headway in their relationship.
