Brief Bancroft Update

Sign in to follow this  


Madison and Michael are now Seniors in college! They’ve managed to maintain their 4.0 GPA. And... Michael has a girlfriend! It’s Madison’s friend, Mary Cole. They have gone on an unchaperoned date *le gasp* but I decided that, since I am essentially God in this game, I can be their chaperone (in a sense). Plus you can only really have a “date” with one person. I suppose they could go on an outing with some friends and just do romantic interactions... It’s still early days, though. 

You can actually get engaged at college, but not married. I might have them get engaged before Michael graduates, and then have Mary drop out; it seems like something a fundie maiden would do. That way, I can move them into Sapphire Springs and have them immediately marry. 

I’m not so sure about what I’m gonna do with Madison though, I may just create her a guy in CAS back in Sapphire Springs and get them loved up quickly so they can make the most of the Adult years. 

We currently have two first-semester Seniors, one second-semester Junior, one first-semester Junior, and (soon) two first-semester Sophomores. And there are still four left at home! I might have Karen stop at 10, because she’s nearly an Elder and it’d be odd for an Elder to have a baby related to them who isn’t a grandchild. It’s a nice round number anyway.

I did have to remind myself of this, but when you get engaged you don’t actually kiss, you just have a (very enthusiastic) front hug. I’m pretty sure you can get to marriage without kissing, you just have to do the other romantic interactions first.

      I learned the hard way about boundaries a few weeks into my counseling career.  One of my group therapy patients told me he'd like to get together with me after he got out of treatment if I were ever visiting the town in which he lived.  I knew this wasn't possible but I was new on the job and didn't want to hurt his feelings.  Plus, if I'm being completely honest, I wanted him to like me.  Instead of being kind and direct I was noncommittal.    

      After our conversation ended, about 2 minutes later(I kid you not), I was paged to the Treatment Directors office.   He told me in no uncertain terms I had to be very clear about my boundaries with every patient.  A staff member had overheard our conversation and turned my in for my own good.  I felt betrayed and angry because I was hired over a lot of other people and in my eyes I was Queen Bee.  Shit!  I ate humble pie after that humiliating and well deserved lesson.

      I was always clear after that.

      Just to put some things in perspective. In Ireland in the 1970s, not only were abortions illegal, so was contraception. This woman really had no choice in the matter of bringing this child into the world. So basically you are arguing that anyone who has ever had sex has a responsibility for a child. Also, we don't know the circumstances under which this child was conceived, how much coercion happened, and how old the parties were. You are really painting people you've never met with a very broad, very severe, anti-woman, anti-sex brush.

      And...way to completely turn off new posters from FJ. 

      I appreciate you putting things into perspective and explaining the climate of 1970’s Ireland better than I could have. My mom was raised in a strict Irish Catholic household and was made to feel incredibly ashamed after she became pregnant. I know this because When I first found out about my brother and my sis and I asked her about it, she admitted it was true and exclaimed, “I’m so ashamed!” I think she carried those feelings of shame with her for her entire life. It’s amazing how different Ireland is today. Many of my cousins live with their significant others and have babies without being married and now it seems to be much more accepted. It’s amazing how much attitudes can change in just a couple of generations.

      I think at this point, JB & Michelle have allowed Jana to call these places “her own”. I think she’s given a lot of independence. I believe Jana is happy living at home and it’s a simple case of no one coming along that made her want to leave “her kids”. None of the Duggar daughters have even married real “winners”.

       In addition, JB & Michelle have given her a built-in buddy with Laura. She has her needs being met in this living situation. I’m pretty sure she wants to wait for Josie, Jordyn, Jennifer, Jackson, and Johanna get into the young teen years before taking off. This is not a sister relationship, it’s a mother and her children situation basically. Jana remaining in the home, given the fundamentalist Christian quiverfull context, is interesting but it really demonstrates that Michelle wasn’t a “mother figure” to the youngest kids, in my opinion.

      On another note, I hope JB & Michelle leave the bulk of their inheritance to Jana. I believe Michelle only truly raised the first 7 with Grandma Duggar’s help. Jana was the 24/7 on-call nanny for years and deserves to be compensated for that. I think the whole family is very generous to her for this reason as well.

      @singsingsing David's grandfather who passed away in October had the surname Blom, which sounds like it could be Dutch. I would think that they have some Dutch roots. 

      Either Dutch or Scandinavian, which both fits with their looks as well. ;)
