"There's just nothing to talk about, really," Kody explained. "Listen, there was a hardness in our marriage that was so difficult and so antagonistic. I didn't know why we were in it."
"It took a long time, a lot of counseling, as we go through all of this for me to finally go, 'Meri, I just don't see us getting back together,'" the patriarch heartbreakingly revealed to host Sukyana Krishnan.
"And why aren't we getting back together?" he asked, before adding, "Because we will go back to the way we were before. There's just no chance that I ever want that again."
When questioned why he didn't leave the broken relationship before, Kody stated, "It's a double standard." He continued adding of his four past and present wives, "They can leave whenever they want, I can't."
As OK! previously reported, Meri revealed in a recent episode that she no longer feels like she is part of the family or like she has a husband.
"I am an outsider, Robyn," she told her fellow sister wife. "Am I a sister-wife when I don't have a husband? I have a husband, technically, but do I? ... It's weird. This isn't the family that I signed up for."
