She grew up in the household of William James Barber, Jr. and Bronnie Ahlstrom in Salt Lake Valley in Utah. She has six siblings; four sisters, Teresa Barber Kunz, Deborah Barber Bronson, Rebekah Barber Dilts, and Elaine Barber Jenson and two brothers, Adam Barber and Marco William Barber.

Polygamy Marriage & Divorce

Meri had been in a relationship for almost two decades. And, the man was none other than Kody Brown. The pair met when Meri was just 19 years old. Only after a few years of dating, the couple ended getting married.

With their time together as a couple, in 1995, Meri and Kody became parents to a daughter, named Mariah Lian. All grown up, Mariah married a woman named Audrey Kriss and now lives with her wife in Chicago.

However, Meri and her husband 's marriage wasn't a normal affair. A practitioner of polygamy, Kody went on to have more relationships, three more to be exact.
