Sister Wives fans know that there’s trouble in paradise in the Brown family. The show features plenty of drama between Kody Brown and his four wives. One relationship in particular, between Kody and Meri Brown, seems to see a lot of issues. These problems have been going on for years, making viewers wonder what’s to come for the couple.
The Browns navigate the COVID-19 pandemic
On Sunday’s episode of the TLC show, viewers saw Kody and his wives figure out how to make things work amid the pandemic. Each wife stayed at their own home during this time. Previously, the family had a conversation about their relationships and how they weren’t really working.
Now, the distance due to the pandemic isn’t making things any easier on the plural family. Of course, due to the issues between Kody and Meri, being separated due to the pandemic isn’t much different than things were before. Now, it’s taking a toll on Meri and she’s pretty upset.
How often do Kody and Meri Brown see each other?
In a confessional, Meri says that Kody visits the other wives more often than he visits her. Most of the time, he doesn’t make time to visit her. She explains, “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.”
Kody admits that he and Meri “quit dating,” and he says it’s because he doesn’t actively try in his marriage to his first wife. He says he only sees her “once in a blue moon.” They do see each other for larger family gatherings, like birthdays and holidays. Aside from that, there’s not much happening between them.

Meri Brown is feeling lonely
The distance between Kody and Meri isn’t giving her the best feeling. It seems like she’s missing Kody and the relationship she had with him. Now, amid the pandemic, she feels alone. She seems to be totally distanced from most of her family members. The issues with Kody don’t seem to make things any easier on her.
In a confessional, Meri explains how lonely she feels. She’s not getting hugs or any touch. She says, “it feels really, really lonely.”
It’s unclear what the future holds for Meri and Kody. Many fans think that Kody mistreats Meri and that they need to split up. They think that Meri would be happier without Kody in her life.
