Just weeks before Robyn's wedding to Kody, Meri and Kody celebrated 20 years of marriage. During their anniversary dinner, Meri confronted Kody about her jealousy and asked him how he would feel if she were giving attention to another man.

"That's just not something I'm comfortable with imagining," Kody said. "The vulgarity of the idea of you with two husbands or another lover sickens me. It seems wrong to God and nature. I understand this seems somewhat hypocritical, and I don't know how to get around it."

Meri admits that her jealousy issues weren't just because of Robyn—she's had these feelings with each of the wives. "I have to work through them," Meri says. "We've had a lot of time together, so I don't get them as much with them [Janelle and Christine]. I get them more now."

The other sister wives also say they've felt jealous in the past. "I realize that [those feelings] are there, and I work through that. I get over the jealousy," Christine says. "I get over my feelings of selfishness or insecurity, whatever."

Robyn says plural marriage helps you work through issues like these and learn to think of other people before yourself. "It rubs off all of your rough spots," she says.
