The resurfaced photos came as many think his “spiritual wife” may be the next to leave.

The picnic celebration was the first date the two went on in a year, and Meri surprised Kody with 30 Rice Krispies Treats to celebrate the milestone.
Kody said to his spiritual wife: “I think we miss the idea of us. We don’t miss each other.”
But Meri shot back: “Speak for yourself. I do have a strong draw to you, but I do not act on that because I know how you feel. I can’t make you care for me. I can’t change that.”
Meri, who shares daughter Mariah with Kody, then explained of how she initiated sex in the past: “Do you get it when I flirt with you at all?”
She added during the blanket-and-basket affair as they sat in the field: “So if I were to lean over and just kiss you right now would you push me away?”
The two did not end their anniversary with a kiss, though photos from the awkward exchange did end up on Reddit.
A thread titled: “Meri & Kody’s 30th cringey & sad anniversary date was uncomfortable to watch,” garnered many responses as fans agreed with the sentiment.
“That was sooooo cringey! What would ya do if I kissed ya?” one wrote, recalling Meri’s question.
“I totally read that in her voice,” another replied under the user.
“Cringey and sad, but I feel like that is the most intimate (in a non-sexual way), honest conversation he’s had in a long time,” remarked a third.
While a fourth wrote: “So very sad.”
“$50 says Robyn made Kody go,” wrote a fifth on Kody’s “favorite” wife Robyn Brown.
Last month, the TV personality shared a selfie in the car ahead of a solo road trip, sharing how much she cherishes the alone time.
“And the things I get to see are amazing too! The beauty of this country is truly magical! I’ve got something fun happening this week, can’t wait to share it with you!” Meri continued.
The TLC star looked excited about the solitude on the open road as she gave a soft smile to the camera while sitting in the driver’s seat.
She donned a full face of makeup and her short dirty blonde hair parted to the side as she prepared for the trip.
Just weeks before, Meri traveled to California for a special LuLaRoe training event by herself.
She also celebrated her 51st birthday without Kody or his other wives by her side.
NEXT TO GO?
Her behavior has had many fans questioning if she will be the next wife to leave the nest after Christine left the family.
Meri recently opened up about her feelings towards her husband in a lengthy Instagram post, retracting her previous use of the word “estranged.”
She wrote: “A few months ago, I used the word ‘estranged’ regarding my relationship, in a conversation with a friend. It was the first time I had vocalized it, and it felt… honest.
“It was hard to use, and yet somewhat freeing. I know where my relationship is, I’m not oblivious to that. I will always look for the best in people and situations and hope they see it too.”
Meri continued: “The truth is, I know my value. I know my worth. Who I am, what I want in life, what I aspire to be, and what I feel like I’m doing a pretty dang good job at, is being happy.”
“What you’ve seen is me using my voice to have fun and bring humor to a not-so-perfect situation.”
Though Kody and Meri were once legally married, they divorced in 2014 so he could wed his fourth wife Robyn and adopt her children.
They are now spiritually married, and he has the same arrangement with his second wife, Janelle, 52.
Christine, 49, was his third spiritual wife before she decided to leave the family in November of 2021.
