... and the TLC'S Wackadoodle Family Lineup continues...

Brother Husbands????  Can't wait to hear what church they're affiliated with.

Even my dog is giving me side-eye.

I had to DVR the first 30 mins so I could watch the SB.  Catching up now.  Weirdness.  The Putmans kinda look normal in comparison....

Lots of jealousy and tension in the air.

If they hadn't specified otherwise, I'd have bet money that Chad and Jeremy also had/have a relationship. 

Weird -- all three adults in the bed. New definition for co-sleeping!

What's with Amanda's horrible hair?  The bad wig vibe makes her look mid 40s.

Hubby cannot understand my inability to look away from this train wreck to watch the Puppy Bowl.

This passive-aggressive stuff between the guys is escalating quickly. And I'm jealous of his man-purse.

I wanted to start this here, so I don't steal any Duggar thunder in their thread.

Brother Husbands premiered tonight on TLC.  Two men, one woman, 5 kids.

Yes, I totally came running here to find SOMEONE talking about that hot mess of Brother Husbands.  WTAF? I'm usually a what ever floats your boat but why put it on TV?

Are you able to move previous posts?  Or copy/quote them?  Just to lay the groundwork...

(.... already derailing yet another thread -- but the crazy cray of Married by Mom and Dad is tooooo much!)

.....

Oh, no!!  No skills are questioned, @MarblesMom.  I simply bow to you and @choralcrusader8613.  (At this time of night, I've lost ability to tie shoes. Or spell.)

Wait, did I see all 3 of them in ONE BED....?!?!:brainbleach:

Something ain't right here.

Do they plan who gets to impregnate her or is it "pot luck"?  What happens if the guy she's in the mood for isn't in the mood for her but the other guy is?  Do they follow a schedule?

The show sounds dreadful but I'd still rather give it a chance than spend another minute watching the Buttmans...I mean Putmans.

I'd give the two hubbys a better chance of succeeding together than their threesome.  Jeff and Gage seem more connected than these two... or three.

I haven't seen the show, but I just read this article ( http://www.theashleysrealityroundup.com/2017/02/02/former-engaged-underage-couple-added-a-husband-to-be-featured-on-tlcs-brother-husbands-special/ ) and it sounds to me more like they are polyamorous than polygamous. Not in the sense that I think the two husbands have a sexual relationship with each other as well, but in the sense that I think that if one of the husbands were to find someone they fell in love with, the other two would probably be open to adding that person to the family. The relationship would then not be a woman with three man attached to her, but a women with two men attached to her, and one of those men has another man or woman attached to him. Also, they are not in this poly-relationship for religious reasons.
I think this makes it a more 'equal' relationship than a polygamous relationship (which is the opposite of relationship between equals). They all seem to want to be in the relationship out of their own free will, and not as a consequence of brainswashing or believing that men should be subservient to women. Personally, I still wouldn't want to share my husband, but I 'like' this version of a poly-relationship better than the unequal religious variant.

I'm really curious about the episode now.

Sorry about that... I just went to the site and apparently DISH (my provider) isn't hooked up with TLCGo, either.  Bummer!

Omg wait...this is a real thing?!?! I didn't see it listed even the other day, wasn't flipping through channels because I knew we'd be watching the super bowl. 

This just cracks me up, because I work with a lady who has been saying for months that she could never be a sister wife, but "brother husbands would be awesome." LOL! 

I wish I had seen this trainwreck. Apparently TLCGo isn't available in Canada. Man, I missed the Putmans too...I need to get a DVR going so I can keep up with all the snarking opportunities!

Everybody's equal, nobody's related through a nebulous web of cousins and half-cousins, and they're not participating because they believe it's a ticket to some afterlife? Sounds good to me! I hope they have power of attorney and living will documents drawn up. There was a pretty interesting discussion about how to legally navigate a poly household in the media coverage about the well-publicized Massachusetts Lesbian Throuple wedding.

I haven't seen this yet but I'm fascinated to see how they make it work. Without a religious reasoning it seems like a stretch to me. I watched a very heated argument on Reddit earlier arguing that polys are all dangerous because they exploit kids but this show seems to show otherwise? I tend to find it amusing when otherwise liberal commenters start bashing a group because its "icky" lol

PS I've lurked here and the old forum for about 7 years....finally posted. I kind of feel like I need to introduce myself, but not sure if that's what FJ does haha!

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
