Kody has faced a lot of criticism and also has legal proceeding against him because of his polygamist lifestyle, but he maintains that he isn’t breaking any law since is legally married to only one of his wives while he is spiritually married to the others.
The spiritual wives do not enjoy the legal benefits of being a wife and this was the reason by Meri decided to let Robyn marry Kody legally. Robyn is going through a nasty legal battle with her ex and she is fighting for the custody of her children from the previous marriage.
The legal courts of USA wouldn’t let Kody adopt her children from the previous marriage since he is not Robyn’s legal wife. In order to give Robyn the chance to get her children, Meri had decided to divorce Kody in order to give Robyn the chance to chance to become his lawfully wedded wife.
The preview of Sister Wives Season 6 shows that Meri and Robyn share a very close relationship where Meri confides in Robyn her decision to divorce Kody even before he is aware of it. According to International Business Times, this confession completely shocks Robyn and she immediately advices Meri to inform Kody.
For the Brown family, the divorce between Kody and Meri isn’t a big deal because it is only going to be a change in the paperwork. Meri is going to keep being Kody’s wife, just not his legal wife. However, by the look of it things aren’t going to be as easy as they thought it would be.
In a confessional video Meri Brown has revealed that she is struggling to deal with the decision of divorcing Kody. It is hard to see the dynamics change after 25 years of marriage and she is too overwhelmed emotionally to do anything.
Meri is very active on the social media and fans were very worried when she kept on sharing depressing posts. Some even asked her if everything is fine and she said that it was just her emotions that were controlling her actions.
In the TLC video Meri said that she wanted to be a team player and even though seeing Robyn and Kody married feels weird she knows that it’s for a good cause and she is trying her best to be supportive and being there for the family.
Janelle was the only one who seemed to have had second thoughts about the divorce between Meri and Kody. She was well aware that it would change the dynamics within the family. She had even said that the two should have waited until the first day of the year to go ahead with the decision in order to sort tax related issues.
While this comment was taken in a light manner by the members of her polygamous family, when she was asked to further comment on the issue, she refrained from it. Janelle has already been vocal about the fact that Robyn’s changed status as the legal wife will change things within the household.
Christine was the first one to express the fact that she wasn’t comfortable with Robyn entering the family and now with Robyn becoming a legal wife things are going to change. T add to that Sister Wives Season is going to largely focus on Robyn with her legal wedding, courtroom drama and her pregnancy.
