Kody and Meri Brown talk about their sexless marriage
In the one-on-one interviews, Meri Brown confirms that she has not had intimate relations with Kody in more than a decade. Kody also confirmed that his marriage to Meri has been sexless for more than ten years. People shared a sneak peek of what’s to come during these explosive interviews.
The interview features a conversation with Meri where Sukanya asks her why she chooses to stay with Kody since there is no intimacy. Meri says, “This is my family, like I don’t understand people who think, ‘Well just because you don’t have this relationship with Kody, why don’t you just leave?’ Because I don’t want to.” She continued, “It doesn’t make sense to me when people ask me that all the time.”
Many think Meri should follow Christine Brown’s lead and leave Kody. However, Meri is close to all of the children and seemingly has made her choice. When asked why she hasn’t followed Christine and left Kody Meri has a simple answer. She said that she and Christine are just two different people with different sets of values.
Christine was also asked why she thinks Meri has chosen to stay with Kody despite all their issues and lack of intimacy. Christine said she wasn’t sure. She said, “I don’t know how she does it.” She continued, “I guess she’s more fine with it than I am.”
Kody also weighs in on relationship with Meri
Kody Brown shared his honest feelings about Meri as well. He is set in his ways that he does not want an intimate relationship with Meri anymore. He says they can be friends but nothing more.
Kody said, “There’s a point where intimacy is just damaged. It’s misleading to have intimacy in a relationship where there is no real safety, I’m not going there.”
The host clarified with Kody exactly what he meant by asking, “You’re telling me that you don’t feel safe with Meri?” Kody responded saying, “No, and I never will again. I will be her friend, I will do what I can to protect her. I will build a house for her out on Coyote pass, but I’m never going to feel safe in an intimate place.”
Kody also confirms that it was not the catfishing scandal that surrounded Meri in the past that led him to his decision. He said the catfishing scandal just woke him up from a daze.
Sukanya asked him if it was enough for Meri to stay committed to the family and only be a friend to him. Kody said, “I don’t think that’s enough for anybody, but everybody makes their choices.”
Fans won’t want to miss this explosive tell-all by Kody and the Sister Wives.
The one-on-one episode of Sister Wives airs Sunday (10 p.m. ET) on TLC.
