First Roberts Courtship

Recommended Posts

Willie Roberts updated his facebook recently, he's in a relationship with Stephanie Haaren.

Not surprised its a pretty blonde, however she's apparently done Australian missionary work. And appears to be German? Or lived in Germany. Fundie light based on the 4 kid family and pictures of siblings in halter tops and shorts.

The Roberts family may have fundie acquaintances, but they're much less fundie. The girls wear pants and they all seem to be rather "worldly." The boys don't seem like the kind that would go for frumpers and a dozen kids. This doesn't surprise me much at all.

I also found Willie's facebook page one day, and it seems like his family (or maybe just Willie) are not hardcore fundy. Willie works in a coffeeshop with regular young people and frequently makes references to hipsters, indicating that he is familiar with "worldly" things. I wonder how traditional this courtship is, especially if the girl isn't ATI/VF. And is there any tension with their much more fundy friends, the Mortons?

I think the Robertses used to be a lot more fundie. If you scroll through the Morton blog, there's lots of pictures of them in typically modest dresses. I think some of them were bridesmaids in Dorothy's weddings? (the one with the green bridesmaids dresses). In the old photos Norma's hair is naturally brown.

I get the impression they became more mainstream in the past few years, and have moved from VF to ATI. Apparently the oldest daughter is in a relationship too (but this hasn't been confirmed).

Dorothy's bridesmaids dresses were blue and I've never seen Norma with brown hair. Marty and Campbell have brown hair. I'm not surprised that they've become more fundie lite, I don't think they were ever hardcore fundies.

How is it more "mainstream" to move from VF to ATI?

There's more to "fundie" and "fundie lite" than clothing preferences. Just because someone does missionary work and is a Christian, doesn't mean they are fundie lite.

There are a few more older photos like that, with the Roberts girls wearing the denim skirts and collared blouses.

And you're right, the dresses were blue, I somehow changed the colour in my head :shifty:

If you look through the Dorothy/Noah wedding pics Marty and Campbell were bridesmaids: deepsouth.me/main/wp-content/uploads/2010/08/S-M-teaser2-1479.jpg

Doubt any of the Roberts girls would wear those dresses nowadays.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
