Although Meri Brown was Kody's Brown's first wife, she and the Sister Wives patriarch have had many ups and downs through the years of the TLC series. Adding a fourth wife to the mix in Season 1 definitely added tension to the family. Meri getting catfished and then legally divorcing Kody so that he could legally marry Robyn and adopt her kids was rough, too. (And then there was the whole no-sex detail, which is kind of a big deal.)
After years of not having a "fully functional" marriage, Kody and Meri officially called it quits in January 2023. Fast forward to January 2024 when Meri announced that she is dating someone new — and has been for several months!
Meri from 'Sister Wives' announced in January 2024 that she had been dating her boyfriend, Amos, since October 2023.
On her birthday (and one day before Kody's birthday, as it happens) in 2024, Meri took to Instagram to announce her new beau to the world and share a few photos of the two of them together. "Meet Amos, the good-looking guy I've been dating since October!" she said. "He's not 6 foot 6, nor is he a pilot, but he loves Christmas almost as much as I do, and we laugh a lot together, both of which are important elements to a relationship!"
Internet sleuths have not yet sussed out too much about Amos, but he and Meri look great together. Even more importantly, Meri's dog Zona approves of the match!
What we do know is that Amos's last name is Andrews and that he has been married four times in his life so far, with his most recent divorce occurring in 2021.
In February 2023, some cryptic posts led fans to wonder whether Meri was already on the dating scene.
On Feb. 14, 2023, Meri took to her Instagram Stories with a couple of cryptic posts that piqued Sister Wives fans' interest. She wrote: "Relationship status: Committed to inner peace, growth, self-love, and gratitude."
In another segment of her Instagram Story, Meri added: "If your life got a little harder, that probably means you just leveled up." Hmmm. "Committed," as in, she's in a committed relationship? "Leveled-up," as in she snagged a better man?
'Sister Wives' fans want to see Meri Brown move on from Kody.
In January 2023, an Instagram Live during which Meri revealed she had a "friend" stay the night at her place prompted some raised eyebrows on Reddit. One user wrote, "She's tryna make Kody jealous🤣🤣."
Meanwhile, another Redditor commented, "I surely hope she is moving on and enjoying whatever company she has!"
Yet another person rooted for Meri to be dating after her split from Kody, writing: "I hope Meri discovers that she doesn't need K or any man to find her happiness. Be happy, get that bag, and live your life girl."
Meri Brown and Kody Brown publicly announced their split in January 2023.
On Jan. 10, 2023, Meri and Kody took to Instagram to post an update about their marriage.
“In light of a recent unapproved press release, we feel compelled to share our own truth, in our own way, and in our own timing,” the Sister Wives stars wrote in a joint statement. "After more than a decade of working on our relationship in our own unique ways, we have made the decision to permanently terminate our marriage relationship."
Now that Meri is officially matched-up again, we wish her (and Zona) the best!
