Sister Wives” Season 6 Finale aired last Sunday, Mar. 1, 2015, at 8:00 p.m. on TLC. The episode kicks off with Meri Brown visiting a lawyer. Read on to know what they are talking about.

Meri tells the lawyer that she wants to know more about the legal divorce settlement from Kody. She explains to the lawyer that she wants Kody to be the legal father of Robyn’s kids. She says that although Kody is married spiritually to four wives, she is the only legal wife.

After the legal visit, Meri calls Kody and Robyn to come to her house for a talk. She tells them that she is okay with the divorce, so Kody can legally adopt Robyn’s kids. Kody and Robyn are speechless for a few minutes. Robyn starts tearing up.

In the behind-the-scenes interview, Robyn cannot believe Meri’s utmost love and sacrifice. She says she wholeheartedly loves her for being so selfless and says that her kids always wanted Kody to be their father.

Back to the talk, Kody assures Meri that although they will not be legally married anymore, she is still his wife. He promises that nothing is going to change in the family dynamic, especially their own married relationship. Meri considers his statement offensive and unnecessary. Kody tells her he is scared of “the D word.” Suddenly, Robyn cries while telling Meri that she appreciates her sacrifice so much.

What concerns Meri the most is the reaction from Janelle and Christine. She fears that they will think her move is unfair because she never did the same thing to them.

Kody simply thanks Meri. Robyn approaches her and hugs her while crying even more. Kody just quietly watches his wives.

In Meri’s interview, she explains what happened when she told her oldest daughter, Mariah, that she is divorcing Kody. She admits that Mariah was shocked hearing about her decision.

Downstairs, Kody calls Mariah to have a talk with her. Meri explains that the divorce is definitely happening. Surprisingly, Mariah looks cool with it.

The next step is for Meri and Robyn to have a dreaded talk with Janelle and Christine. Amazingly, Christine cries tears of joy because she thinks Meri is so sweet and generous to sacrifice her marriage for the kids. She runs to her and hugs her tightly. However, Meri notices Janelle with a poker face. When she told the women that the divorce would happen the next day, Christine is surprised again. She inwardly thanks Christine for being so excited and talkative to cover Janelle’s negative reaction. Secretly, Christine admits that she did not care about the marriage – only Robyn’s kids.

To defend herself, Janelle explains in the interview that she is okay with the marriage. She just did not know how to react. That is why she talked to Kody to make things clear. However, she admits fearing change. She is afraid that Robyn will eventually be Kody’s favorite.

Finally, Kody, Meri and Robyn go to the attorney’s office. While Meri is signing the divorce papers, Robyn cannot help but cry. Meri cries too as Kody signs the papers.

In Kody’s interview, he says that he is angry at the government for prohibiting plural marriage.
