Sister Wives

Recommended Posts

I didn't know this before but it appears that Janelle was once married to Merri's brother but divorced him in 1988. I guess that her and Merri are friendly now but I read a snippet that said there was tension in their friendship in the beginning due to the fact that Janelle initiated the divorce. I took it with a grain of salt though. What was kind of interesting is the fact that first Janelle had merri's brother and then she "married" her husband.

I would think that four women sharing one hubby would be a recipe for some major envy. The wives were not completely thrilled when Robyn came into the picture. Now that they're adding another kid to the mix, I wonder how that will work out.

And not only was Janelle once married to Merri's brother, Janelle's mother married Kody's father. That family...

I had no idea that Janelle was married to her brother! AH! I mean, even though it's not blood, it still squicks me out a bit. Their family tree is a wreath.

I don't think it can ever be said better than one poster did on TWoP: "Their family tree is a wreath."

I really like the idea of polygamous families, frankly, as well as the idea of having quite a few kids amongst more than the usual number of adults (I like large families done right!) so I wish we could see a family that's a bit ... nicer? The fact that there are tensions and balances is normal in ANY family, but the dodgy tax stuff, Kody being a bit of a tool, and the intertwined families isn't inevitable for polygamous families. They're not too bad, is what I'm saying, I just want a perfect happy family to fulfill my every interest.

My apologies if there is a thread already for this, I couldn't find it.

Anyone watching? I cannot believe TLC renewed them. It makes me fairly certain that Sobbin Robyn is pregnant.

The business plan storyline is going to make me insane, haven't we heard enough of this already. No one wants to buy their crap. Their few fans bought stuff when the "store" opened but now it's all dried up. These are five adults with no jobs, and a bunch of kids. :cray-cray: :angry-banghead:

I missed the start of the new season. I don't know if Robin is pregnant but she wants a baby according to the promo. As usual Janelle is making threats to be done with everything.

How bad am I for watching this (and other reality train wreck shows) so I don't feel like such a loser? Please don't answer that LOL. I watched the reruns of last season yesterday - all I could think was :angry-banghead: :angry-banghead:

Though Janelle is looking really great. I almost put a brick through my TV wan Kody had the brass kahonnas to say on-camera about how much more physical they are now.

But hey it's back for new shows so between Sister Wives and Breaking Amish my Sunday nights won't be boring.

I'm new to this forum, but I've been floating around the IFB survivor world for quite awhile now.

Just throwing it out there, because I'm damn proud of my family. I have a plural marriage. I married both my kid's fathers, and I have a long term boyfriend who we haven't ceremoniously added to our mix, but he is still a daily part of it.

      Not nervous because it's part time. 
      I am so glad I am no longer with the professor.

      Went to a writer's group meeting yesterday.  First time I've gone to this group's meetings.  Different from other groups I've participated in - this one was a series of prompts and exercises.  I was in a bit of a mood going in - Father's Day weekend for a recent widow is no laugh matter; several social/annoying things happened at Shabbat service in the morning, and one of our service leaders made a "somebody really should" statement of the writing variety and once I hear someone say "someone really should" I usually can't unsee the idea until I've had a try at it.  We did a word association map for one exercise, then wrote something based on part or all of the word map.  I picked a section of the map that had some references to knives and fancy dress balls to write from.  I'm pretty proud of what I wrote in 15 minutes but it's pretty clear that I was in a "mood."
       
       
      The night of the long knives came and went as a plague on the first born of the land.  Men perfectly healthy went to bed only to be jerked from sleep with knives against their throats.  Here were the leaders of men, thrust against walls at the point of a stiletto, there the young men only following their orders, and over there again the family men who didn't exactly plan to pursue this path but perfectly content where they'd found themselves.  At the end of a blade, deep in the depression years, taking their payslips home at the end of the week feeling they'd done a good job, and a little extra for mother in the kitchen. The years of children, church, and kitchen. The good women. Most of them not owning a fancy pair of shoes or a party dress, for who had time?  The children needed their mothers at home, the men away at work.
      The children of course, were not silent.  Soldiers burst into their homes, dragged their fathers out of bed.  Mothers clutching their husbands, children wailing for their papas. The ones who understood left quietly, reassuring the children on their way out - it's a special exercise, I couldn't know about it beforehand, otherwise I would have told you.  Hush child, I'll be home in a few days. They knew they'd be lucky to make it to the end of the block, of course, but let the children hope for a little bit longer, before all hope fell away and their eyes opened to the hatred their own fathers had taken part in.
      Others didn't understand, resisted and fought against the soldiers who came into their homes.  They'd believed in the banners and flags, they'd stood and cheered, they'd enjoyed seeing fear cross the faces of those who understood.  Now they themselves fought back in fear. Fear of losing their lives for who could possibly know what comes next? Wagner wrote of Valhalla, their wives faithfully attended church; surely there was something to greet them when the heart stopped quivering, trying to pump blood flowing onto floors, and truck beds, and sidewalks.

      Almost lost my little dog Molly today  Thankfully she seems to be ok but the next 24 hours are crucial. My ex husband came home to find her blanket wrapped around her neck real tight and she was just laying on the floor. He got her untangled and the blanket had blood on it and she had pooped and peed (probably so scared while it was happening) She started coughing up blood and her one eye is all bulged out and bloody. He called me and I told him to get her to the nearest emergency vet and I would meet him there. They said she's really lucky to be alive. They said to keep a close eye on her breathing the next 24 hours but after that if she's ok she should be fine. They sent her home with eyedrops and an anti-inflammatory medicine for her little neck. I'm so happy that she is ok but man, my heart is broken just thinking about how terrified my poor little baby was! I really really hope dogs have short memories so she doesn't remember this but even thinking about how she was most likely struggling just breaks my heart. I know she's "just" a dog so this is probably silly to alot of people, I totally get that, but she is my baby. I never had children. Molly is my baby. Everytime I think about how she was probably feeling I just cry. But I'm so glad she's alive.

      While in bed, two ants appear on my arm. Instead of approaching this logically, I spray the ant spray straight behind my nightstand.
      Unventilated.
      Immediately. Don't do that.
