Kody married Robin for her looks. She’s the only one who kept figure matter 4 children. He cannot risk the weight gain. Janelle is the ONLY one who understand s that FACT; thus, her weight loss quest. She will be the most attractive when it is complete

How heartless, Kody you must not understand how you told Meri that the two of you should try every aspect before you decide not to under go invetro.I do not understand why you decided to say no wasn’t it you that had pushed Meri to check with other DRs I am blown away,Meri is such a wonderful woman for rolling with the punches.

Meri is the most indecisive person ever. She took so long to decide!! Robyn made the surrogacy offer when Solomon was born, he is 2 years old now!! Meri just milked it for all its worth just fir the attention from Kody. She really is pathetic. As for Kody, I have no idea what these women see in him!!

I am very sad for Meri. She really need to think about her relationship. I do not think Kody was fair with Meri. Kody you looks so intelligent and nice father. You decided to have this responsibility of having a big family. I think you can not open opportunity to some of them and close for one. It should be the same for all of them.
Well, Meri I feel sorry that he said no for having a baby with you.

How do you explain to your children, that you should follow what the Bible says. Lets start with the 10 commandments.Thy shall not comment aldultry.when you are breaking the 10 commandments every day of your life. Well the only time you are simi-living right is when you are sleeping with your real wife.And what in the world did you and Meri see in Robyn? She has an anger problem.I really feel sorry for your children.They are so brain-washed.I hope and pray before you and your make-believe wives die that you will really get to know Jesus-Christ and ask for forgiveness. I believe your children will make it to Heaven, they don’t really know the difference. The older ones probably know but are afraid to com front you parents. And this is sad.

Burning the overnight bag? How can they afford to waste money like that with the mortgages on four HUGE homes, and so many kids to send to college? Screw symbolism- give it to Goodwill so someone else can use it at least!

I’m glad they’re together again but I’ve seen them waste so much money on the show…

That entire family situation is very sad..women are emotional creatures and were created to love and be loved in a monogamous relationship.Kody can’t possibly love each woman the same. Meri is a very sweet woman and should divorce that whole situation as with all the other women and each of them find a man of their own. All of those women has to have a very low self esteem and doesn’t love themselves enough to subject themselves to a life of hurt jealousy insecurity mental and emotional abuse. Each of them are having babies by a man that can’t support them or the kids on his own. I pray that GOD deliver those women from bondage and being deceived by the trick of the enemy. I pray that they find solace and comfort and agape love in GOD through the salvation of Jesus Christ. I pray for them to gain love and respect for themselves and liberate themselves from that life of emotional misery and disconnection from real love. They deserved to be happy not just on Camara or on the surface but internally and genuinely. Sharing a man will not allow that..May the lord our father in heaven touch them all and have mercy on their souls

Unbelievable, Kody…

He puts all this pressure on her for YEARS, then basically gives her the ultimate rejection.

I would not be surprised if he brought in a new young wife soon. He wants all these kids- then by the time they’re 6 months old he gets bored and wants another.

The family will probably fall apart sooner or later. He’s not making enough of an effort with each wife. They’re living in separate houses when their faith clearly says they should be one family in one home. He is acting more like a baby-daddy than a husband.

This sucks, because I’ve loved hearing this family’s story and I REALLY wanted them to succeed.

The one house thing won’t work for them anymore. They all love their space from each other and their big houses. This is not a polyg family anymore. It is now a married man with three mistresses.

I don’t mean to sound unsympathetic because I like Meri’s character very much, but she has been hemming and hawing for so long over the decision to have a child through surrogacy, since Robin first made the offer, that I suspect Kody, who seemed very enthusiastic for a long time, just finally decided it was best not to go that way. I certainly came to feel long ago that Meri should just say no, and enjoy instead helping to look after the younger children in the family when she felt like it. Being a full-time mom of an infant at her age is actually quite demanding, whereas she can choose when and how to spend time with or support the raising of the younger children, and still have restful times or enjoy having the very different relationship a mother develops with a grown up daughter. She may be a grandmother in just a few years, and really want to put energy and time into that.

Their lifestyle works in Meri’s favor?! If not for their lifestyle, she probably would have had another baby via surrogacy years ago! And she wouldn’t feel ‘left out’, she wouldn’t feel as though he favors the other wives, etc., if not for their lifestyle. She would be in a much healthier emotional situation if she were married to one man and knew that she was his priority, as he is hers; as it should be.

I was disgusted that Kody Brown put all that pressure even going as far as involving Mariah in the conversation and really putting the screws on poor Meri! Then finally she gets excited about the possibility of a new baby in her life only to have that awful man rip it all away from her! He makes me sick! Why is he so cruel to Meri? The look in his eyes when he speaks to her makes me uncomfortable as well. I think he resents her because she is his legal wife.

AT LAST! Meri is his only wife, he is a bigamist, what does that make the rest of them!!! Robyn is the most patronising sick person I have ever seen, just given birth, handing the child to Meri, looking on with satisfaction and then offering surrogacy. WHAT A WOMAN, NOT!!! Meri, take Mariah, go out on your own, get her a scholarship yourself, You two will have a fab. life you can do it. Poor old Kody will have to get another woman or his ego will disappear and we can;t have that. Get out my dear before it is too late. Personally, fro what I see on the show Mariah is not a happy girl and she loves you dearly. Don’t ruin her life, she does ot seem to want this lifestyle and who can blame her when se see’s how her beloed mother is treated by 3 woman and her father. Do not have another child, if you do Robyn wuill have a lifetime of “crowing” over you and her so called wo nderful part in the whole mess. God make you able to make a right decision for you his legal wife, you will have to get a divorce, the others won’t, Make a life for yourself and Mariah. All the best.

Meri will never leave Kody. She enjoys the fact that she is the only legal wife!! She wears that like a badge of honor. The others are just mistresses. Which is why she let’s it be felt in her choice of house (expensive taste) demanding a wet bar, expensive college for Mariah. She, in a very subtle way let’s it be known that she gets what she wants. Let’s face it, she never wanted to go ahead with the surrogacy, she dragged the decision out for so long because she got Kody’s full attention. Why would she want to start over at her age? Why carry on about not being able to have more kids? They keep saying they are mother’s to all the kids, so technically she has a lot of small kids to still help bring up. I wish she would stop crying all the time. So annoying! !!

And I do think he and Robyn will have at least one more child. Kody is only truly interested in Robyn.

It is sooo obvious that Kody has no romantic interest in anyone but Robyn. Meri was basically told by Kody that he does not want another child with her. Christine can’t even get his attention for a discussion never mind romance. Janelle I think she is so lost in this family ( she has said it herself many times) that she feels this need to take control of something in her life and that is why she is on this health kick. Did any one else catch what the builder guy said about the wives relationships with Kody. He clearly stated that Kody and Robyn are like newlyweds and how “cute” they were. On twitter Robyn is the only wife that has a pic on her account with Kody in it. The writing is on the wall it just gets clearer each season………….

Robyn will have as many kids as it takes so Laughing Boy” does not go looking for No. 5. and he will, give him time. Whe n is someone goung to tell that man he has one legitimate wife and one legitimate child. The way he prances about makes me sick, “look at me I must be a great guy with 4 woman fawning over me” The authorities nationwide in the States need to come together and make it illegal to act like Ali Baba and have all these woman, sorry they are not wives. On the one hand we have one man shelling out kids on one woman and wearing her out, the Duggars and Bates to now God help us, then we have the Ali Barba’s – loads of kids but shared around with several women. I believe in freedom of speech and freedom of religion but not religions you make up as you go along to suit your so called needs and desires.

Exactly! It’s a “calling”. So Heavenly father will whisper in his ear and he most obey!! If that is the case then why does he say the wives have to agree and if they don’t then he won’t. Does that mean that the wives’ “calling” is louder that Heavenly father’s? That the wives can disobey the Heavenly father? What a load of codswallop!! He just makes it up as he goes along to suit his own horny selfish needs. The mistresses keep saying they are not monogomysts. Actually they are. They only sleep with ONE man, so technically, each one if them are monogomysts.

I do not think Kody was fair with Meri. He says she is the most loyal but where is hisvloyalty to her? He put pressure on her to have another baby and now when she finally says she’s ready to explore other fertility options, he says no. Poor Meri.

Kody has no shame he pressured Meri involved Meriah only for in the end to tell Meri I don’t want another baby with you. I mean how cruel. My heart breaks for her. I know she feels like there is no place for her in this marriage. If she really wants another baby, she should leave Kody find a man who makes her first before it’s too late to explore the option of fertility options, He says Meri is the loyal one my question is WHERE IS HIS LOYALTY TO HER?

I think that Meri’s been stretching out the time it’s taking her to decide about a second baby for a specific reason. She’s been using that “Pity me – I’m so sad that I could have only one child” line as a bargaining chip for years. Turning down a chance at a second kid too quickly might make her look bad.

I felt bad for Meri but since she has some pregnancy health issues I can understand her wanting to forego the medical tests again and having Robyn being the surrogate…It was interesting to me that
Kody said no at that thought…Sure hope he doesn’t get Robyn preggers again because it will just show he is interested in only fathering a child with her than Meri his only legal wife. Hmm

The thing is, if Robyn was the surrogate, she’d be getting all the pregnancy special attention. Kody’s bond would grow stronger with her, not with Meri. She wouldn’t feel as if it were really her child. In normal surrogacy situations, where the husband is not MARRIED to the surrogate carrier, it’s different. But in this situation, I just don’t see how surrogacy could work in Meri’s favor. I can see why she’d take a long time to make a decision. Would she really feel like the baby is her child? Would she really get that bond with Kody? Probably not.

I was thinking that–she has the most unempty nest you can imagine! She doesn’t need small kids to be a woman or feel fulfilled or have a lot to do. Anyhow she is quite old to be starting over. I had my kid at 38 and it’s tiring to keep up and even worse when they start, as adults, to cry over when “you are gone.” Apparently they think that will be soon. So, Meri, yes, Kody stepped on your decision–but he always does with you gals. You will be fine being an aunt or whatever you call it.

Meri is a not a family member. She wants a one on one as years goes by. Being No 1 means to her a liberty…with an acceptance in the younger years, that she can adjust later on. However, Meri plays the 1st Card and justifies her reply after the other wives. She always justifies a single situation. Leaving any decision up to Meri, falls on Kody’s shoulders.
