On the show, Meri and Kody went to couple's counseling to try and mend their troubled relationship.

That's when Meri 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.”

Kody is only legally married to one woman - Robyn - while his marriages to Meri, Janelle, and Christine have all been "spiritual unions."

Kody divorced Meri, his only legal wife at the time, in 2014 to be able to adopt Robyn’s children from a previous marriage.

Many of their children have vowed to stay away from polygamy, including Maddy Bush, who wed Caleb Bush in 2016, and Christine's daughter Gwendlyn, 18.
