SISTER Wives star Meri Brown was married to Kody Brown from 1990-2014.
They divorced in September 2014, so that he could marry his fourth wife Robyn and facilitate legally adopting her children.
Meri admitted their marriage was “pretty rocky for a while” as Kody mentioned he “regretted” their relationship.
She has contemplated several times leaving the family on the TLC series, but had remained a “spiritual wife” of Kody.
Kody and Meri share one daughter together, Mariah Brown.
Mariah is the family’s openly gay daughter and is engaged to her girlfriend, Audrey Kriss.
In the show, Meri and Kody went to couple’s counseling to try and mend their relationship.
That’s when Meri, 49, admitted their relationship has been “pretty rocky.”
She continued: “People ask me all the time why I don’t leave.
“The relationship between he and I is gone, it’s dead, it’s over.”
Kody, 51, then explained how they had a “very fast courtship.”
He added: “I didn’t know who I was marrying. I am just done with hearing how I am wrong.”
In another preview for the episode, he said: “We’re family, but we’re not acting married.”
Meri responded: “He doesn’t want to move forward with trying to work things out with me.”
He fired back: “I can never be honest because she’s unable to move away from being the victim.”
During the same therapy session, Kody revealed: “Meri mourns the loss of what we had… I regret what we had.”
Meri said: “The relationship he and I had, it’s dead, it’s gone, it’s over. I want a relationship with him.”
He then slammed Meri for “going to victim mode” when he tried to have honest conversations.
He continued to fire: “I feel like I was deceived into a relationship that was very different than what I expected. Meri and I had a fast courtship with a lot of expectations and a lot of not communicating.
“I didn’t know who I was marrying. As things unfolded, I started to become troubled and bitter by the situation I was in.”
Instead of posting a photo with Kody for their anniversary, Meri captioned a selfie with her dog: “Puppy life… Can it get any better??”
Meri then posted a series of cryptic quotes on Instagram.

She shared on Instagram Story: “You don’t always need a plan. Sometimes you just need to breathe, trust, let go, and see what happens.”
She then posted: “Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”
But Meri didn’t stop there, as she posted a quote that read: “Remember to take care of yourself. You can’t pour from an empty cup.”
She added to the post: “Self care. I’m feeling in need of this today.”
Kody’s first wife posted a selfie of her haircut and weight loss after she revealed she has been working with a personal trainer.
Meri continued to spark split rumors with the post, as she insisted she doesn’t “need anyone” in the caption of the photo.
