You have to applaud Kody Brown‘s first wife Meri for the gut-wrenching sacrifice of offering to legally divorce her husband. Her divorce cleared the way for Kody to tie the knot with fourth wife, Robyn, in more than just a spiritual sense. That meant that he could formally begin the process of adopting Robyn’s three children from her first marriage. Sadly, Robyn’s first husband rarely saw the children and paid nothing for their support.
Being a sister wife is complicated, and Robyn Brown goes public with one more of the difficulties of sharing her husband Kody Brown , on the latest episode of Sister Wives. Just when she’s made Kody soo happy by getting pregnant with their second child together, she feels sick inside (and no, not from morning sickness) but because she needs to break the baby news to the rest of Kody’s wives and the other 17 kids in the family.
Sister Wives‘ Kody Brown and his wives deal with cruel fallout from their commitment to polygamy when daughter Madison, 19, is brokenhearted after being rejected by the Mormon Church of LDS — when they refuse to accept her into their ranks. The Utah State University student was just hoping to “belong” to the mainstream Mormon church so she could retain ties to both her family and religion without having to practice polygamy. But, no such luck – she’s dissed and dismissed!
You’ve got to hand it to Kody Brown‘s first wife Meri, who volunteered to divorce her Sister Wives husband with the hope that fourth wife Robyn and Kody could legally marry and be able to adopt Robyn’s children from her first marriage. It was a long shot, but it was the only way that the Brown family could have any chance of legally making Robyn’s three children a part of their family.
When news broke in early Feb. 2015 that Kody Brown had divorced first wife Meri, 43, in Sept. 2014 ,to legally marry younger fourth wife Robyn, 37, polygamy critics feared the worst. Had Kody finally begun to dump his older wives in order to move his latest love, Robyn, up the family ranks and possibly to have more children with her?
Meri Brown is setting the record straight! It may seem hard to believe, but in a dramatic new teaser for the Season 5 finale of Sister Wives, Kody Brown‘s former first wife swears that it was her choice to divorce the polygamist patriarch, leaving him free to legally wed Robyn, 37, just months later. Assuming Meri, 44, still loves Kody — which she appears to — how could she possibly be okay with this arrangement?! Here’s what we know.
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.
