Meri Brown posted a new picture to her Instagram account and along with it, a caption that could be construed as cryptic. In the picture, she is sitting inside Lizzie’s Heritage Inn with her daughter Mariah’s two dogs, Mosby and Koda.
She captioned the pic, “If you want unconditional love, get a dog, or two. Better yet, get kids who get dogs, less responsibility for you, but with all the perks! Best thing about being a dog grandma!! ???#LivingMyWhy #BecauseICan #LoveWhatIDo #LoveWhoIAm #DogGrandma #UnconditionalLove #MosbyTheDog @kodatheshepador “
Mentioning unconditional love could be referencing something that she feels she doesn’t have with her husband, Kody. Meri is known for posting vague inspirational quotes on social media that pack strong messages.
Given her tumultuous relationship with her husband of 30 years, Kody Brown, it wouldn’t come as a surprise if the indirect messages she’s sending are referring to him. Meri and Kody’s strained marriage has taken center stage lately.
Meri and Kody aren’t strangers to relationship woes
The couple’s history has been tainted by a catfishing scandal, divorce, and plenty of disagreements. Recently, the new season of their show Sister Wives has displayed their distant relationship and miscommunication about Coyote Pass.
Meri and Kody disagreed about where to build Meri’s house on the property in Flagstaff, leading the fourth wife, Robyn to intervene as a peacemaker. Robyn called a truce between Meri, Kody, and herself while the three walked the property and discussed their differences.
Viewers recently saw Meri and Kody’s daughter, Mariah visit with her fianceé, Audrey, with news that they are moving to Utah to be closer to the family. Kody was out of town with Janelle when Mariah made the announcement.
The family continues to fall apart amid their separation
In the sneak peek trailers for this season of Sister Wives, fans saw Kody speak about no longer wanting to advocate for polygamy. The family has been separated since they moved from Lehi, Utah to escape possible persecution from an ongoing investigation into the family for polygamy.
For several years, Kody’s four wives have lived under separate roofs with their children, with Kody dividing his time as equally as possible. With 18 kids, four wives, and two grandchildren, it’s mind-boggling to imagine how Kody finds the time to cater to each of his family members’ needs.
The division of family is taking its toll on each of the spouses, and it’s especially evident in Kody’s changed demeanor this season. He has been more outspoken than usual in interviews, on the show, and on social media. Just this past week, Kody has told a follower to “grow up,” called himself “grumpy,” and taunted Robyn about having more kids.
Fans of the show have quite a bit to look forward to this season, given the ongoing tensions between the party of five.
Sister Wives airs on Sundays at 10/9c on TLC.
