The Real Reason Meri Brown Doesn't Think Kody Would Care For Her If She Was Sick

There's no shortage of drama on TLC's hit show, Sister Wives. We get to watch Kody Brown and his four wives Christine, Janelle, Meri and Robyn as they raise their plural family in Flagstaff, Arizona. According to People, this season is especially intense — with the COVID-19 pandemic, all of the families have been keeping to themselves in fear of contracting the virus. This has made it more difficult to be together as one happy bunch, as Kody is the only one bouncing between homes.

A big concern for Kody is preparing for the unthinkable if one of his wives fell ill. The husband says he would drop everything and help as much as he can, given the seriousness of the pandemic. "If you're sick and you need to be taken care of, I'm going to have to come and do it," he said (via People). "So that would go for any wife. Period."

His wife Meri, however, is doubtful he would lend a hand, and that's not a surprise given the up-and-down state of their marriage. Keep reading to see how Meri really feels about Kody.

Meri Brown does not think Kody would care for her if she came down with COVID-19

Previously, Meri Brown has said that she only sees Kody Brown "once in a blue moon." She's hesitant to believe Kody would even care if something happened to her. "I would just be at home alone sick," she said (via People). "Nobody comes over here anyway, we don't see each other." 

Cue the tension! Fans of Sister Wives have seen Meri and Kody's tumultuous marriage play out on TV for over a decade. She admitted that it's sometimes hard to relive their tough moments, but she has to "show up as the best version of me," per Us Weekly. Maybe these two should consider signing up for couples' therapy! As for the current state of their marriage, Meri says there's a lot of work to be done, but things are slowly starting to get better. "There is always improvement to be made, but I am at peace where I am," she explained. "I'm happy in my life."

We're rooting for Meri and Kody!
