Wow! I sure hope the others follow suit and leave Kody and Sobbin to themselves.

Good for you, Meri! Encourage Janelle and Christine to leave too! :wink-kitty:

Well, good! I'm not a huge Meri fan, but I imagine if I were in her position, I'd have been sullen and cantankerous too. Hope she finds happiness in an equal relationship with someone who loves her.

Is this a reliable source? I just don't know if I believe it. Meri introduced Robin to the family and said she was getting the divorce do Robin would have protection financially and legally for the other kids she had. Meri and Robin were very close. If it is true, I doubt it has anything to do with Robin. Of course I guess that's just what they say on TV.

Woo hoo! To be fair, there is only so long one can look at Kody's hair, put up with his personality AND know he's sleeping with other women. :dance:

Very interesting. Meri always seemed like a powder keg that everyone else was tip toeing around. If she has physically left the family- what will they do with her house? It's not like someone else is going to want to move into a polygamous compound in Las Vegas. I think her breaking ties but staying in the house would be even more awkward.

I wonder if Kody was ever on any of the kids birth certificates except for Meri's daughter? I would think that Janelle and Christine would be in a prime position for financial aid as their kids start coming of age for college if no father is on record. I wouldn't be surprised if they left too, but not until the kids are older.

If that's what she wants, then I'm happy for her. I haven't read what the rest of FJ thinks of the Brown family, but compared to the Colorado City flavor of polygamy, they are really pretty good. I don't understand why people hate polygamy itself so much. Much like other fundies it's the insular nature the faith has taken on that has led to the abuse we see. I have no problem with polygamy so long as it's between consenting adults (and not bigamy, everyone has to know about each other).

I live fairly close to Colorado City so I've seen quite a few of these folks over the years. It seems to me that the Browns are so much more functional than the Warren Jeff devotees. They educate their children (how many are off at college now?) and the division of labor is among adults, not mostly among the children like the Duggars. Even the sort of Quiver full nature they seem to have is at least split up between several uteri (uteruses?). It just seems to me that they really aren't hurting anyone here. Am I missing something? Is it Kody's personality? There are plenty of people who I couldn't imagine being married to. That doesn't make them bad people.

After reading the article, it seems no better than when Us Weekly or In Touch are speculating that two celebrities are dating because of an 'inside source'. They don't even have a picture of them together, so I'm pretty skeptical of this whole thing.

I'll believe it once the family confirms she has left.

I'm sure we'll get a flurry of tweets very soon from Meri and Robyn which say that Meri's relationship with this guy is just a friendship and that she is still very much a part of the family.

There is something up with her, though. She is on Twitter basically all day. I find her friendship with this Twitter guy to be inappropriate. She tweets a zillion inspirational quotes but can't tweet Kody a happy fathers day?

You make very good points that the Browns do a lot or education of their children. The snark factor, for me personally, is the way Kody favors Robyn over his other wives. I feel like the Browns may have had a good, functional thing going in Utah with Meri, Janelle and Christine as his wives, but once Robyn showed up and they moved to Vegas, everything changed. The biggest losers in terms of Kody's time and attention have been Janelle and Christine. This past season Kody acted as though he basically hates Christine and he has always treated Janelle as a co-worker or friend rather than a romantic interest. I think he keeps Janelle around because she is a hard worker and earns money, Robyn is the romantic love of his life, and I don't think he knows why he stays with Christine. It used to be that she was the stay at home mom that raised the kids, but he now has Robyn for that and Christine's personality seems to just grate on him and likewise for her. Robyn is also snark-able in her personality. She comes off as self-centered and cries constantly seemingly for attention. Hence, the nickname, Sobyn.

Okay, so we don't snark on them for polygamy itself, just the dynamics between these reality TV "characters". I'm down with that.lol My husband and I were commenting on how many men might idealize having more than one wife, but how Kody always seems so frazzled and running around like a chicken with it's head cut off. 4 girlfriends would be one thing, but 4 wives is quite another.

How quickly we forget the rotating bankruptcies. I have no idea how these people qualified for their mortgages. Has anyone had a normal job in years?

Realty is a normal job, though I can't vouch for how normally they did it. Lol

I never really looked these people up. What I know, I mostly know from the show. I think I missed this last season though. I saw the ad for the divorce thing, but never saw the show.

Hey, I'm a new FJ-poster but I've been lurking for a bit, so let me know if I mess up any of the etiquette.

I just noticed that on Meri's twitter her little bio reads, "You know you have made the right decision when there is peace in your heart. ;-)"

Does anyone know if it said that before? I just thought it was odd, especially with the winky-face and all.

But when you are raised in a religion that tells you that you must be in a polygamous marriage in order to make it to (the highest level of) heaven, is it really an equal relationship between consenting adults? The wives believe that if they leave, they are facing eternal consequences.

(Their audaciously bad financial decisions are also highly snarkable.)

Many religions believe that divorce equals hell. Clearly it didn't stop Robyn. They've said many times that there are plenty of folks in their church that don't practice the polygamy part. The Colorado City people on the other hand... That is the least of their problems.

      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.
