‘Sister Wives’ Finale: Meri’s Heartbreaking Divorce From Kody Brown To Save Robyn’s Kids
Fans were shocked when Kody first revealed that he and Meri were ending their 24-year marriage so that he could marry his younger fourth wife Robyn.
But now we know that it was a family decision to help insure and protect Robyn’s three young children from her first marriage, Dayton, 15, Aurora, 12, and Breanna, 9. Robyn was so touched by Meri’s offer that she broke down in tears when she first learned the news.
“This woman loves my children enough to give up her marriage and that’s the most beautiful love,” Robyn said during the finale.
But for Meri, her sacrifice is totally worth it.
“If anything happened to Robyn, we’d have no legal claim on Dayton, Aurora and Breanna,” Meri tearfully explained. But they’re “part of our family.”
