Sister Wives star Meri Brown (one of Kody Brown’s four wives) gets a rude awakening to start off the new season, which might explain those cryptic messages she posts online. Viewers of the show embarked on much debate over Meri Brown’s hints about leaving the family.
Sister Wives: Meri Brown Kept Fans Updated
But it only takes one scene in the new Sister Wives season that seems to clarify the roots behind Meri’s many open-ended messages.
Meri Brown has posted messages about severing relationships to quotes about finding your own place in the world. The Sister Wives matriarch never assigns a name to the thought-provoking paragraphs that she posts on her social media sites. But Sister Wives fans filled in their own thoughts on which one of Kody Brown’s other wives they believe Meri is talking about.
Most of the messages Meri Brown posted since the end of the last season leave a lot of room for assumptions. So fans made those assumptions online. That started the chatter about Meri’s place within the Sister Wives family.
One Foot Out the Door?
While fans assumed Meri Brown was working her way out of the family, it doesn’t look that way today. Or at least not in the new Sister Wives clips leading up to the new season.
First, viewers find out it is Meri who urges her shared-husband, Kody Brown, to give their marriage another try. Then the Sister Wives promos throw in another surprise. Kody doesn’t want to put the work in to fix their marriage. It seems this is something Meri tells the marriage counselor during a session seen on an up-and-coming episode.
So, why is Meri Brown still there? Especially after Kody turned down her request to put their marriage back on track? This is when the Sister Wives patriarch seems to explain it all in a nutshell.
Meri Brown Won’t Partake in Marital Relations?
Kody tells the therapist that Meri will remain part of the family. But and it’s a big but… he also tells her that their relationship can’t go back to the way it was. It sounds like she stays as a Sister Wives tribal member but she doesn’t get any of the husband perks, like romance.
In the promo clip above, Kody tells the therapist, “we’re not acting like a married couple”. That’s when Meri explains that her shared-husband doesn’t want to work on their marriage.
Without saying the words, it seems Kody Brown indicated he took Meri off his rotating bedroom schedule. Kody claims they don’t act like a married couple, so it sounds like Meri’s every fourth night is up for grabs by the other three wives.
Then to add insult to injury it sounded as if Kody won’t put the work in to help get her back on that rotation. What happens next is anybody’s guess. But fans only have a few days to wait as the new season airs this coming weekend.
