She’s getting her happily ever after! For years, fans of Sister Wives watched as Meri Brown struggled in the love department — from her insecurities about Kody taking on new wives (she was, after all, the first wife) to the fall out following her catfishing scandal. But the 47-year-old mom is finally getting the last laugh as Life & Style has learned that she has a new man in her life and she’s finally leaving Kody once and for all.
“This man treats her life a queen,” a source close to the polygamy family tells Life & Style exclusively. “He’s friends with some of Meri’s family and they’ve known each other for several years, but things only became romantic recently.”
Meri’s new man — who hasn’t been named — is a far departure from the life she knows: He’s never been married and he isn’t interested in polygamy. He also isn’t looking for the attention that comes along with dating a beloved reality star. “He’s not into fame, either,” the source adds. “He just loves her a lot. He says he has always felt she wasn’t appreciated in her marriage to Kody.”
Right now, Kody and his other wives — Janelle, Christine, and Robyn — are staying put in Las Vegas, where they went to hide from the anti-polygamy laws of Utah. Meanwhile, Meri is enjoying her life back in Utah with her new man.
In the past, she’s been open about the fact that her life with Kody is far from perfect. Even so, she’s had the support of her fellow sister wives. “It sucks, the whole thing sucks, sorry,” Robyn said of Meri and Kody’s predicament while in counseling. “It’s not fun and it’s hard to know what to do with it. I mean, we love Meri, we love Kody. We have to be Switzerland constantly and we hate to see him in this place, and it’s stressful for our family.”
We can’t wait to see how the drama plays out on Sister Wives. We hope Meri’s new man appears on the show!
