For the past five years, they have been going through the motions of being married. Yet, they have no connection or intimacy. In the latest episode of the series, Kody revealed the status of their situation. At the same time, Meri showed a side of desperation her followers most likely did not expect.

When the series first began in 2010, the couple seemed to be very invested in their marriage. Meri was actually the one who encouraged him to engage in a conversation when they first spotted Robyn. From there, he would begin courting the mother of three who would become his fourth wife. Meri had fertility problems and desperately wanted to give him more than the one child they shared, daughter, Mariah.

His other wives, Christine and Janelle, both birthed six kids so he and Meri were seen talking to doctors. At one point, Robyn even offered to be a surrogate for them. Though the wives and Kody all admitted to ups and downs, they wanted to make their plural marriage work. Unfortunately, a rough patch hit leading Meri to seek love outside the home. She found an online relationship which sadly resulted in her getting catfished.

The marriage between her and Kody never recovered and they became very distant. He seemingly never cared to spend time with her. When she bought her bed and breakfast in Utah, the family wondered if she was planning on making an exit. Meri vowed to follow them on their journey, moving to Flagstaff from Las Vegas. Unfortunately, when COVID hit, Kody rarely came to see Meri. He openly said they had no real relationship anymore and hadn’t for a while.

He wanted to ask her feelings about moving back to Utah since Christine had her heart set on going back there. Meri openly tells the camera a few times she does not care what he wants to talk about. She is just excited he wants to come by and that he wants to talk to her. Meri does not even care that at the family barbecue, Kody only sets up three firepits. He figured Meri could just join one of the other wives.

When he makes her a s’more the way she likes it, Meri gets all giddy like a schoolgirl. She knows Robyn put him up to it but she is beyond elated. His behavior towards her goes completely out the window. She has not heard him say, as he left her house, that there are no romantic feelings. They are amicable with one another but that’s where it ends.
