List of Unmarried Fundies – It's a Small World

Damn, I miss all the good stuff! Doesn't look like she's posted again but it would be fun to have her around.

It doesn't surprise me that Deanna's family disowned her - but it does make my blood boil. The fundie beliefs are designed to destroy the very families they claim to be the center of everything. Keep making those babies and have as many as possible, but, you know, throw them to the curb when they grow up to be different than you.

Who was the Girotti guy engaged to? Was it Bethany Yuck? She is in a new relationship now with someone named Spencer Johnson who lives in Maryland.

Yes, it was Bethany. On the Girotti blog, it is as if the engagement never happened... rather Maxwellian. But I'll give the Maxwells a tiny bit of credit: at least they announced that the wedding was off. The Girottis just stopped mentioning Bethany, then scrubbed posts mentioning her.

And I know they referred to having visa issues since they are Canadian...interesting she would "court" another American again....Yes, for people that attribute everything to God's will they sure don't like to mention him when things go south as if a breakup is the worse thing in the world.

He looks more like her father than her husband.

Whenever I see him I imagine his life. Aging, unmarried, lonely. No prospects. Then, an idea...go fundie! Adopt the religious life of a large fundie family and before you know it, they'll give you one of their older, unmarried daughters for your very own. 

I don't know how old she is but she isn't 'that' old; I'm not opposed to age differences, but there is clearly more to this than two people of different generations meeting and falling in love.

I just feel bad for her in 15 years. When she's active, energetic, and healthy and she's caring for her children and her aging husband.

And what if they cannot have children? How old is she, mid 30's?  Maybe she really does love him and maybe she was a sheltered SAHD with no prospects and was pressured to accept a marriage proposal..... I feel for her as well, it just looks squicky IMHO.

I don't know, I think their looks/style make it all seem worse. There is a pretty decent age difference between my husband and me, but it's not hugely noticeable. He was blessed with youthful genes and dresses stylishly, and I have a bit of a preppy-middle-aged-mom look, and we balance out rather nicely. Imagine Russel with a better haircut and modern frames, wearing dark jeans and a shawl neck pullover, minus the gut. Now imagine Amanda with a long angled bob, makeup, modern frames, trouser jeans and heels, with a sweater set and pearls. I think we'd likely be saying how nice they look together and people would think he was lucky to have scored a cute, somewhat younger wife rather than saying they look squicky. 

Im not faking fun of their appearance, I hope that's clear! I just think their "styles" emphasize their age difference rather strikingly.

Okay - guys - this is a first run through.  I have *NOT* yet tried to work my way through the courting, engaged, or newlyweds.  Could you please review the list and if you see updates or corrections, please tag me (with the @ ) so that I go right to your post?  (I don't want to miss it - tagging is the most efficient way to do that.)

If this looks good, I will c/p into the lead post.  I will do my best to get it right - but the more accurate and complete you guys can be, the better I can get it.

And, no, I'm not making a list of 17 year olds.  When they hit 18.

@SpoonfulOSugar A few updates

 

I think we should remove Tori Bates as she's apparently courting Bobby Smith though they just refer to him as boyfriend and haven't said the word courting yet.

Long: need to remove Emily who married Wesley Carmichael in March and add Mackenzie who is 18.

Smith: 11smiths blog.  Emily, Rebekah, Sarah, Jonathan. I think we had them listed before and now I don't see them.

Willis: Jessica, Jeremiah, Jennifer, Jeanette.  I think we should add them.

Brigid Boyer is engaged - to a friend of her sister Jessicas ex-fiancé.... Who ever guessed that this might happen: you were right.

Wow on the Arndts occupying 2 lines on the list.  With 2 or 3 younger brothers eventually they'll be occupying a 3rd.  Come December the Duggars will have a 2nd line too!

@SpoonfulOSugar Should be Elisha, not Elisah Wahlquist.  I transposed the last two letters.

Uh oh, she says she developed feelings for him BEFORE her family had vetted him for marriage! Who knew it could happen in that order?

Also, I have to wonder how Jessica is feeling right now-- I mean she guarded her heart, so there's no way this is painful for her, right?

What?! Why only one blog post, not a seven-part series?? (I mean, there will be more posts of Brigid + Gabe, but she summed up their story in just one post, unlike Jessica.)

I don't think I've ever seen a guy wearing linen pants. Interesting.

I'm wondering if this engagement will actually work out. Poor Jessica!

I never heard of the Arndts until FJ and this family is fascinating. All these single grown men in one family! That doesn't even happen in non fundie families! It's just so weird.
