Unmarried Fundies 10: Before Happily Ever After


Bethella

Recommended Posts

I know we don’t follow the Shaws but I wanted to post a picture of this huge engagement ring. The Shaws have a singing group called Citizens if Glory and I always figured one of their pretty daughters would end up dating a Bates boy. The families know each other and they live in Tennessee. However two of the Shaw daughters have been seeing two sons of the Crevier family. Which is also a large traveling fundie family that does basketball and unicycle tricks for Christ. I kid you not. Holly Daye Shaw just got engaged and here is the huge ring:

Could be moissanite or some other alternative stone.  I know quite a few people getting engaged over the last several years who have gone for moissanite.  It looks nearly identical to a diamond, but it's much cheaper, without the ethical concerns of diamonds.  

Gorgeous ring, though.

It could be. I just can’t handle having a giant ring on my finger 24/7. My engagement ring is not big at all and I still can’t wear it all the time. The only ring I wear 24/7 is a thin gold band. That’s the only ring I can stand being on my finger all the time.

Seriously? That sounds like an interesting, if bizarre, rabbit hole. 

Another one who thinks that stone isn’t a diamond. Which is fine - I’ve never been a fan of clear stones, anyway. It’s so big it looks like it would get in the way.

Holly Daye, seriously? This reminds me of the discussion we had a while back about first and middle names combining to make up a name. Now we have a first and middle name that makes up a word. How many more can we think of?

Also thanks for bringing attention to these two families. Maybe they should be added to our list.

They are all good looking and I’m still thinking it’s possible a single Bates boy will want to date a Shaw girl. The Bates boys seem to go after exceptionally pretty girls.

Yes, but would they be good with a Bates boy? Right now we have Trace, Jackson, and possibly Warden available and seemingly the right ages.

I don’t know if they do enough unicycle tricks. That seems to appeal to 2 of the Shaw girls currently ?

Trace did try the Trick Pony Rodeo or whatever that’s called.

Which begs the question what do these girls see on the Bates boys? *cough*Lawson*cough

The Shaws currently don’t have a home. They sold their house without finding a new one. So they are living in their RV and doing some traveling for singing gigs. Good luck finding a home in Brentwood, TN!

That is a very - busy website. Way too much red, way too many spinny graphics. They also need to update their bios, since most of them reference events of 2013. 

The kids seem to have no choice about the basketball/unicycle thing. On the positive side, several of the older kids have apparently been to college, and one of the girls competed in the Miss South Dakota pageant (I can’t believe I’m considering a beauty pageant as positive, but at least it shows a willingness to interact with the outside world).

Here’s their Instagram. They went to the Above Rubies conference this year in Florida.

Life is too short for fundies pretending to be the the Jesus approved Harlem Globetrotters. No thanks. 

At least they're not just another family making a buck by "singing" - there are far too many screeching fundie families who claim to know how to sing/play music; they're almost a cliche'.

But, these people? No thanks. I don't even want to know people like this exist.

I went to a Harlem Globetrotters show a few years ago because someone in my office was giving away a bunch of tickets. I think my partner and I were the only people there without kids. Still a decent excuse to sit in a stadium and eat kettle corn!

Unicycling for christ sounds hilarious. They kind of remind me of the Johnson family i have been following for a while and i also think could be added. I discovered them thought the oldest Katy (Johnson) Voetberg who has both a instagram and YT channel (@nowthatiamamother) and has 4 kids under 4 all with L starting names. The Johnsons have this weird family website (the big ski family) where they say their mission is to introduce 1 million families to the joys of skiing together. Its all so bizarre and privileged! Aparently they get sponsors just because. They have 11 kids, the girls all with K names and the boys C.B names.

There’s no way they will get me to ski! I have poor balance these days as an almost 40 person. Maybe 20 years ago I could but I’m also agnostic. So even if I ski, it won’t be for Christ!

Phillip Rodrigues is 18 today.  He can join the growing list of unmarried Rods.

I think we’ll see Kaylee and Renee married before we see any of the boys.

      The Berries were born in Highland Park Hospital. We went to the 4th of July Parade every year until we moved here. I’ve been crying all day. This is horrible. We are just waiting for a list of victims to make sure none of our old friends from those days were hurt. I HATE this.

      Already after the Supreme Court's decision to overturn Roe v. Wade, I was already NOT feeling 4th of July and felt it was ridiculous to celebrate. Now a mass shooting at a parade in a town nearby. Multiple fatalities. Everyone has to shelter in place in their homes, can't go outside, because shooter is still on the loose. Nearby towns canceling their celebrations due to public safety concerns. Wow guys, how free we are! What a great country we live in! Aren't you grateful for all this freedom?! /s
      The usa, what a fucking joke.

      Had some bad news out of Dubuque today - 3 teenagers were killed in a one car accident where the driver had been speeding and flipped his car. 
      I feel so sorry for their families and friends now.  It also brought back painful memories for me and some of my classmates because my junior year of high school three of our classmates were killed in an accident as well.   One I had known since elementary school.

      Hey FJers, long time. Sorry I've not posted in like forever - life just sometimes gets in the way.
      During the lockdown, I did various temporary jobs (shelf stacking in Wilko, and also working from home doing call centre type stuff, including Test and Trace) but hope to go busking soon. I need to practise my set as my guitar/singing has got a bit rusty!
      Since I last posted, I have become a cat mum! My housemate with Lilith had to move abroad and wasn't able to take her with him, so I inherited her. She'll be two in August but still looks and acts like a kitten. I love her more than life itself.

      Sooo. I turned down the new job, realized I've been scammed.
       
      Also today I'm 26 and drunk right now. My amazing husband took me to Chicago to a rooftop bar and I'm so glad my mom is here to babysit and I pumped enough to last her a few days

      With the fall of Roe v. Wade, now would be a great time to start taxing religious institutions so we can increase funding for women's and children's health and education services.  Males 18-25 still have to register for Selective Service; how about adding a DNA database to that requirement to help track down impregnators and hold them responsible for their part?
