‘Sister Wives’: Kody Brown And Meri Brown Have Not Been Happy Since 2015
So what caused the initial downfall? It was a traumatic story, to say the least. Meri had been a victim of the infamous catfish manoeuvre. After conversing with someone online, Meri thought she had found another male admirer. And yet, it turns out that it was a female masquerading as a male. Naturally, when she told Kody about it, things did not go down too well.
In an episode of Sisters Wives’ Kody recalled the incident: “About five years ago, Meri and I were in a bad place. She basically asked me to stop staying at her house, and ultimately what happened is she went through an experience where she was catfished by a person pretending to be somebody else. From that experience, Meri and I sort of saw our marriage just dissolve.”
And it seems that all Meri wanted to do was take a break. But from that moment on, Kody felt like he was no longer needed. That is where all the miscommunication had stemmed from, which has continued to plague their marriage ever since. Although she did try to fix it at the time, it seems Kody was not having any of it. In the episode, Meri stated: “So what [Kody’s] referring to is about five years ago, he was more distant than I wanted him to be.
“At night, I just wanted him to put his arm around me. And I couldn’t sleep because I felt the coldness coming from him.” Despite the mistakes made by Kody, Meri did acknowledge that she was also at fault. She is known for making her voice heard, but it seems she was not very tactful in communicating exactly what she wanted.
And in hindsight, she wished she could have done things differently. She added: “I did not manage the situation well. I said to him, ‘Can you just not stay here for a while…He took it at as, ‘Go away and don’t ever come back..And that’s not what I meant.” We will have to see if the couple can fix these problems.
