SISTER Wives’ Kody Brown has claimed he is not “abandoning” his wife Meri as fans keep begging her to “leave” the relationship.
The couple agreed to divorce in 2014 so that Kody could legally marry his fourth wife, Robynand adopt her child.
In the first season of Sister-in-law Sits Down, the family teased Meri’s fishing cat drama, in which the 51-year-old discovers that she is talking to a woman online and not not a man as she initially thought.
After summarizing what happened, Kody told Meri special host Sukanya Krishnan: “…there’s been a difficulty in our marriage, so difficult and antagonistic that I don’t know why we’re in it.
“…it took a lot of advice before I finally went, ‘Meri, I just don’t see us getting back together.”
After Sukanya asked, “why not leave her?” Kody replied, “It’s a double standard. They can leave whenever they want. I can’t.”
“It’s not a double standard because emotionally you’ve left and been abandoned in a number of ways,” says Sukanya.
“Abandoned? Please!” Kody went on a rampage. “Take back the word because I offended that word ‘abandon’.”
He continued: “When Meri has an affair, she leaves me!
“She left me for a better, richer man.”
Despite everything about Kody, fans still quickly took to Twitter to urge Meri51 years old, to finally leave the relationship.
One wrote: “Meri, your relationship with Kody is over – he’s clearly telling it to the world. You deserve to be in a loving relationship.”
Another said: “Please leave, Meri! He said he doesn’t want you!” while the third called, “Meri, get out!”
‘I LOVE HIM’
However, while fans urge the TV star to get out of the relationship, Meri still has “hope” things will turn around after all these years, and she remains “committed”.
Sukanya asks Meri: “Do you feel there is a future for you and Kody as a couple with complete co-workership?”
Meri replied, “I want to have… I love him… I just feel at peace thinking about being in the family because that’s what I want.”
“I will never have a marital relationship with her,” Kody later said in the special issue.
In the episode, Meri also reveals her and Kody”haven’t had sex in a decade. “
Kody explains, “There’s a point where intimacy is just compromised. It’s just so wrong to have intimacy in a relationship that doesn’t have real security, I’m not going there.”
Fans watched Kody and Meri’s struggle unfold on screen, they revealed for the first time lack of intimacy back in April.
CHRISTINE WALKS AWAY
She said: “After more than 25 years together, Kody and I grew apart and I made the difficult decision to leave.
“We will continue to be a strong presence in each other’s lives as we parent our beautiful children and support our wonderful family.”
An insider told the publication that “Janelle meant that when [she] said she was leaving Kody. It will happen. ”
