Welcome to Who's Who: Fundamentalist Family and Organization Summaries! This is a bit of a work in progress section of the forum. Some of our members have graciously volunteered to share their expansive knowledge on the various families and organizations that we talk about here on Free Jinger.
We have more summaries planned and will be adding to this section as folks get time to write them up.
We appreciate the time our members have taken to share their obsessions knowledge with us

Someone needs to tell Jessa to buy a bed skirt or as some call them a dust ruffle then you don't have to worry about the dust bunnies. I was raised by a militant neat freak, it was awful, having a mother who cared more about a clean house than her kids so when I see a less than spotless house I think, a homeowner who has more important things to do. Honestly why the hell does anyone care if Jessa has dust bunnies under her bed, or if Jill has laundry basket on her bedroom floor, of all the awful shit this family does, not living in a spotless house isn't even in the top 10.
I agree, a mother spending all her time on the house is not ideal for the kids. However, Ben is a professional toilet cleaner. (Just ask JB. Lol). Maybe he should be cleaning the house.0

You had that as well? That's so cool! My parents got it when my sister and I were pretty young children and read it with us.
I had it too. Must have read it a dozen times! In German, it's called "Peter, Ida und Minimum."1

I don't remember them discussing any protocol but Jeremy did say that he asked JB if he could get to know Jinger in early Dec. 2015. I just can't imagine a guy asking my dad if he could talk to me.
I can imagine my reaction if a guy asked my dad for permission to talk to me. If he did not have the guts to talk to me directly i would not have talked to him. If he thought i would talk to him just because my dad likes him, without thinking about my opinion, i would not have talked to him. I appreciate my dad's opinion, but he never would have liked to be my door to the world.
I can imagine my dad's reaction to such sort of guy. A guy who asked my dad for permission to get to know me would never ever have got his permission. Because my dad considers bis daughter as an independant woman with her own mind.Edited by Scrabblemaster
I really love my dad for being just as he is0

@MamaJunebug, I remember those old belts and pads you had to hitch up! They were so uncomfortable. I remember getting my period (not for the first time though) at the Beta Club state convention in Columbia. I had to go to the drug store and by that time they'd come out with Stayfree. I was eternally grateful to not have to deal with a belt.
When we girls or my mom had our periods, the dogs liked to knock over the kitchen or bathroom trash and snack on bloody Kotex. My sister and I had many days when we'd have to clean up in front of the door before my brothers came inside. Good times, I tell you!
What do you mean a belt? I'm confused.0

yep, she's 50; only 3 years removed from the baby boomers.
That would be me. I'm at the tail end of the boomers. Does she go and try to hang with the millennials and expect to be accepted? She must make them really uncomfortable. They see her coming and say,.." Oh we gotta split, that creepy old lady is here". They probably wouldn't say "split"1
