    Yes that's true but I don't think she thought he would really go for it and she didn't think she would feel this way. It's all so weird to me.

    Meri did push Robyn. They were friends first. I think "coming out" is what tore Kody and Meri apart. Also the fact it seems he pressured her to say no to trying for kids any more and in any way even though it was clear she desperately wanted more kids.

    If I remember right the only house that is jointly owned by Kody is Meri's since they were legally married at the time. The others are in each individual wives names. No way would any loan company put him on four loans that total *at least* a million and that's low balling for this area (they're in my area) for brand new, built to order houses. It's probably closer to $1.5-$2million.

    Even with a divorce, being married so long if he has any kind of pension, 401K etc. she's going to be entitled to half that. Robyn doesn't automatically inherit it. But again like others have said, where would she go? This is the only culture she knows.

    Oh yes I remember the big issue with getting all 4 loans. It was down to the wire.

    Yeah, cause Robyn's credit was crap. I don't think she'd actually been divorced for that long so was still tied to that financial mess. My guess is her mortgage terms are not ones you would want. Barely in the 600s, technically recently divorced and in her name only? Probably not pretty as far as loans go.

    I think Janelle was married to Meri's brother? I'm pretty sure Robyn's ex was FLDS. His name is common in that group though it escapes me now. edit: Looked it up, Jessop, you hear that name over and over reading and documentaries on the FLDS.

    How does Christine and Meri get mortgages with no job? I'm assuming they use income from Sister Wives Closet.

    Having sex with multiple women at the same time isn't being strict with sexual mores. lol

    DH and I figured they were able to get the houses because of their income from TLC. Also how they afford those vacations. :)

    I believe the only thing she would be entitled to at this point would be Kody's social security when she reaches retirement age due to the fact that they were legally married for over ten years. Of course, we don't know about any settlement she may or may not have gotten in the divorce, like property, pensions, cash, etc. My best bet is she got nothing because Mr Stringy Hair convinced her nothing had changed and it was all just a formality (yeah, right). I don't know if her house is in her name or his, or both. So she might have that.

    Well Meri had the advantage of actually being married and I'm pretty sure she does work. I think Christine is the only actual SAHM. I'd think Sister Wives Closet would probably be a risk not an asset. Most likely they get paid decently for the show.

    The thing is, Meri can leave if she wants to. A lot of women have left bad marriages without any financial security or assets, young children in tow. Meri's daughter is grown, and Meri, I'm sure, can find a job that will enable her to support herself. True, she won't be living in a half million dollar house, but most people don't. As far as the family, there's no reason why she can't maintain a relationship with the kids-divorced people do it all the time. I can't think of one good reason for Meri to stay in this marriage. She's miserable and it's not going to get better.

    Exactly.

    Meri could leave and get hefty paychecks from TLC for deciding to stay on. Imagine those ratings if she left! And stayed in her house because in all actuality, it's HER house, she doesn't have to leave HER house.

    I wonder if she's more concerned about leaving the wet bar than she is about leaving Kody!

    And if they get paid based on face time in what airs (no idea how it works), she's probably making a mint.

    And you, my dear, should have been her divorce attorney! But my guess is she didn't even have one. Greasy Locks probably handed her papers and told her to sign them.

    Since she's the one who hired the lawyer he technically worked for her so we can hope he protected her interests a little better than that. She mentions having thought about leaving around that time and she doesn't strike me as stupid. Of course, that's *if* Kody actually has any assets at all. It's pretty shocking the people in that age bracket who don't.
    Oh, I have no idea.

    She's the one who hired the lawyer. She went to him before she brought up the idea.
