It's a real-life wife swap!

Sister Wives star Kody Brown has divorced one woman in order to marry another. Although he says he has four wives, legally the reality star only has one, and her name is Meri; however, that is no longer the case.

Brown quietly divorced Meri, E! News has confirmed, and has since married Robyn, the youngest of the four women. The other two "sister wives" are Christine and Janelle.

"We have chosen to legally restructure our family," the Brown family said in a statement obtained by E! News. "We made this decision together as a family. We are grateful to our family, friends and fans for all their love and support."

The series previously alluded to potential marriage troubles between Kody and Meri when she admitted on camera that she had her doubts about being part of a "plural marriage."

"I'm happy on the good days and when Kody shows love and affection, but on a bad day, I question my importance to the family and if Kody still cares about me," she said on the show.

She also questioned her lifestyle choice when she discussed how much she enjoyed college and working but ultimately had to drop it all when she and her family went public with their way of life.

"When we were living in Utah, I had started going to college, and I was really enjoying it. It was very fulfilling to me," she said during one episode. "I ended up working at a residential treatment center for at-risk youth and I love it. Loved, loved, loved it. I ended up losing that job because of my lifestyle, because of going public, because of an investigation. So, I never went back to college after that."
