It seems Kody’s motto is out with the old and in with the new! The TLC star decided he no longer wanted to be married to his first wife Meri, and went ahead and married the youngest of his four wives, Robyn. Take a minute to wrap your head around this!
It what may seem like an odd move, Kody Brown legally divorced his number one wifey Meri, 44, and has now married Robyn, 37, the youngest of the four wives according to a new report. Although it’s illegal for the polygamist TV star to be married to more than one woman, he claims to have four spouses — Christine and Janelle being the remaining two.
‘Sister Wives’: Kody Brown Divorces First Wife Meri
For those who are confused as we are, Kody Brown married his first wife Meri before meeting any of the other women. But since then he has added wives Christine, Janelle and Robyn into the mix.
But a new report claims Kody has come to the decision to end his legal ties to Meri and marry Robyn. “We’re told he wants to make sure Robyn’s kids have security within the family, such as access to insurance and other benefits,” reports TMZ.
According to the outlet, Kodyn divorced Meri last fall, and discreetly married Robyn a few months later. The paperwork for the divorce was filed in Sept. 2014 and was finalized two weeks later.
While we don’t know officially what the reasoning was, it wasn’t a deal breaker for Meri, who currently remains in a relationship with Kody. As for the remaining two wives, this can’t be an easy pill to swallow for them.
Meri: “Stay Loyal Or Stay Away From Me”
Although the divorce between Kody and Meri was kept a secret from fans, their personal issues with one another haven’t been.
The Brown family’s hit TLC show Sister Wives, which is in it’s sixth season, has shown their audience that the pair’s relationship is under construction. The couple have struggled to conceive more kids and that has left a rift in the marriage.
Ouch! Hopefully these two can work out their differences for their family and doesn’t cause more distain in the house.
