She told the outlet: “I think that all relationships, you know, have issues that they have to work through. And I think that’s just kind of where we’re at right now.
“For me personally, I’m not one that’s going to give up.”
Meri added: “I’m just going to keep at it, you know? Ebb and flows in the relationship … I think that’s just kind of normal.”
Also during the interview, Meri said she and Kody were “in a place where we’re just figuring out where we are and, you know, what is happening.”

She explained: “They say that a person needs four hugs a day just to survive. People probably are not getting four hugs a day right now.
“I love hugs and touch, from the appropriate person, you know what I mean?
“And when you don’t have that, it feels really, really lonely.”
Reflecting on her relationship with Kody, Meri continued: “I’m really careful about pushing Kody because I don’t want him to feel like I’m being demanding or pushy or anything like that.
“You know, I don’t know what Kody is going to be doing after the two-week quarantine. I don’t know what his plans are — I can’t speak to that, honestly.”

She admitted Kody regularly visits her fellow sister wives, though shared he doesn’t come by her house unless their daughter is home from Chicago.
Meri said: “He doesn’t typically come to my house very often. Maybe now that Mariah and Audrey are here, he might come and visit with them at the end of the two weeks.
“But he basically is just going to be going between Janelle and Christine and Robyn, that’s typically what he does. Just calling it like it is.”
