I always wonder: is Anna not allowed to get a divorce in the state of Arkansas because they have a covenant marraige? I see that you can get a divorce when one is unfaithful but Josh didn't actually admit to anyone in particular. The unfaithfulness could be something like watching porn, which would probably not be ruled unfaithfulness by a judge, so Anna can not get a divorce under the law of covenant marriage?

Could that be it?

They were married in Anna's home state of Florida, where there are no convenant marriages.

Exactly - they wouldn't have a covenant marriage because Florida doesn't have them (and didn't at the time of the marriage). I don't believe that there's a way to change an existing marriage to a covenant marriage after the fact (but please correct me if I'm wrong!) but even if there were, it'd be pointless anyway since, as @Lurky mentioned, it doesn't prohibit divorce at all - just makes it less easy and quick to get.

Dearest FormerGothardite, I once crowned Buzzard a Patron Saint of FJ because of her selfless willingness to sacrifice both time and sanity to recap the Duggars.  Now, I do the same for you

It's seven years today since my darling dad died in my arms. For all of you who haven't experienced a close bereavement and are dreading it, let me say this: Grit your teeth and get through the i

That's a terribly irresponsible thing to allege.  I'm no smuggar fan, but to throw that out there based on nothing is not okay.   Not every woman who is being physically abused has bruises and no

I have an observation about this whole "covenant marriage" thing.  I wonder if it's just a way to differentiate a fundie marriage from a regular run-of-the-mill marriage.  Since heathens and gay people have a Regular Marriage, fundies get to have a super special Covenant Marriage.  Which is for super special people.  I can see this taking off in other states as well, at least among the fundie crowd. Maybe over time, other states will be pressured to have Covenant Marriages too, as a backlash to gay marriage.   Rediculous, but so is having a over large umpa lumpa for a president.   Hahaha

I imagine Anna maybe has felt similarity to Glinda in Wicked?

Quote

 

GLINDA

Yes - 

We couldn't be happier, 

Right, dear?

Couldn't be happier

Right here

Look what we've got

A fairy-tale plot

Our very own happy ending

Where we couldn't be happier - 

True, dear?

Couldn't be happier

And we're happy to share

Our ending vicariously

With all of you

He couldn't look handsomer

I couldn't feel humbler

We couldn't be happier

Because happy is what happens

When all your dreams come true!

...

That's why I couldn't be happier

No, I couldn't be happier

Though it is, I admit

The tiniest bit

Unlike I anticipated

But I couldn't be happier

Simply couldn't be happier

(spoken) Well - not "simply":

(sung) 'Cause getting your dreams

It's strange, but it seems

A little - well - complicated

There's a kind of a sort of : cost

There's a couple of things get: lost

There are bridges you cross

You didn't know you crossed

Until you've crossed

And if that joy, that thrill

Doesn't thrill you like you think it will

Still... Who

Wouldn't be happier?

So I couldn't be happier

Because happy is what happens

When all your dreams come true

Well, isn't it?

I have to wonder what motivation if any does a fundie husband have to be a decent husband/father. Sure they espouse a belief in Jesus, but they have an unending "forgiveness ticket" which can be punched ad nauseum. Then the whole having a built in authority base with devine authority supposedly guiding everything.

The fundie husband and father does get away with a lot. I'm sure that the women are blamed more often than the men.

As long as a fundy man proclaims that he loves Jesus, he is considered a good husband and father. Nothing that happens is his fault. It's the fault of his wife, heathens or Satan.

It's why abusive, narcissistic assholes are drawn to it.  Nothing they do is their fault.  They are always right, and their shortcomings get blamed elsewhere.

Absolutely! You would not believe some of the carp I was blamed for by my ex and his family - up to and including allowing my baby to "willfully" look over my shoulder at his father "with a look of 'ha, she's mine now, not yours!' " - he was just shy of 3mts at that point. I still have the scar on my foot from that one.

The God given authority thing and the handy puppet persona of a devil ('wasn't me, HE made me do it...') is just horrendously dangerous. - and needs to be way more openly talked about.

That is so terrible! I'm glad that you have made it out. And I hope that you are doing much better now.

      My uncle just died from COVID. He wasn’t that much older than I am, so I kind of grew up with him. Just ten days ago my mom had been pleading with him to get vaccinated, but he wanted to wait to make sure the shots were really safe. I’m kind of devastated.

      I just found out my little bonus kid is in a treatment center on a suicide watch tonight. He and I share a hobby and a couple weeks back he opened up to me that he's severely depressed and was wanting to hurt himself. I let his parents know and thankfully he had also been talking to them. I'm just heartbroken because him being in this center means that his parents had to call 911 and have him admitted and I know that was so hard for them to do. He's a young kid and has his whole life ahead of him but just wants to end it all and I don't know how to help him.

      Middle aged woman with mommy issues...but missing her today.
      She got so much wrong with me, but she had the best intentions and tried so hard. 
      She got so much right, too.  I forget that sometimes.  Sometimes I remember and dismiss it out of spite.  
      “They did the best they could with the tools they had.”  I forgot where I first heard that but I’ve carried it with me like a mantra since my parents passed.   They truly did.  Whatever else was missing, whatever I needed that they couldn’t give, the love was always there.  

      Always. 
      That’s something.
      My confidence in my own abilities.  Faith in my own power.  My own strength.  They gave me that, too.
      That’s also something.  
      They’re why I’m messed up, but they’re also why I’m okay.  
       
      Shit’s complicated.
      She died before I figured out how smart she really was.  Sad thing is I don’t think ever figured that out for herself.  
      Ignore me - just crying in my car waiting to pick up my son.

      The nice thing about posting about Jewish history is how quickly it flushes out the antisemites. 😘
