In a preview for the Sunday, December 12, episode of Sister Wives via People, Janelle Brown and Meri Brown are at odds over the location of the Coyote Pass pond — but the conversation soon turns to the topic of privacy and living space boundaries.

"I have heard you say quite often about the pond and not wanting anybody by it," Meri, 50, tells Janelle, 52, during a hike. "And I've also heard you talk about the house in Lehi, and so it makes me feel like there's still some…something."

"I had some real concerns. And then for a while, you were talking about being by the pond and possibly having a deck, which would be awesome," Kody Brown's second wife stated after she explained that she was worried about the mother-of-one building on the property and restricting access to the rest of the family.

"But I worried because in Lehi, you didn't want people walking through – Christine [Brown] and I couldn't walk through your house to get to each other's houses," she continued to tell Meri.

The Brown family lived in Lehi, Utah before they were forced to leave the state in 2011 after the Utah government launched an investigation into their plural marriage. Meri's living quarters at the home had the only internal pathway between Janelle and Christine's living spaces. An outdoor staircase connected Janelle and Christine, too, but Meri requested that the other wives use the external route.

"I worked full time. There was a time that I worked two jobs," Meri later told the camera in a confessional. "I just felt like it wasn't inappropriate for me to have the respect of my personal space within my home when I wasn't even there."

Janelle then explained to Meri, "I appreciate understanding that it might have been a privacy thing, but it always felt kind of like a control thing."
