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

I agree. And then maybe Samuel will find a girl to court and Tim’s head will explode.

If the father of a courtship eligible female doesn't grill a Rod boy (or any boy) on how he intends to support a wife he deserves to have his daughter & her double digit kids living in an RV in his back yard forever. Steve Maxwell requirements not necessary, but the ability to hold down a job and pay for life as an adult should be "are you husband worthy" 101.

I definitely thing the Rod girls will marry before the boys. It's not necessary for them to have an education or skill.

Never thought I'd endorse a Maxwell product, but I'll make an exception for the Rodriguii and Steve's book on raising sons.  Not because Steve is brilliant but because David and Jill are doing such a crappy job of preparing their sons for the real world.  Even the Keller sons can earn a living wage. All the Rodrigues sons are learning is how to grift and sermonize.

It's true Steve "prepared his sons" but he failed his daughters, so I think it's a wash. 

The Rods failed all of their offspring so, I guess that's a wash too. 

Being a fundie parent seems really freaking hard. Raising all your kids, not matter their sex, to be decent, honest, fair, productive human beings is apparently raising them for the devil or something.

Benjamin Burnett is engaged. He will be the last Burnett sibling to get married. I knew that as soon as he got into relationship it was going to be only a matter of time until he got engaged.

Wow a family of 8 kids and all of them are married. And no divorced yet. Not many large fundie families can get every kid married off before the oldest hits 40. The Maxwells sure can’t.

Yes both Nathan and Christopher are over 40 and the Maxwells still have single children.

I believe the maxwells could have if the girls weren’t so stunted. Families like the Burnetts and Bontragers that actually believe in getting their kids married do a pretty good job. The moms and dads are like super Mrs. Bennett’s from pride and prejudiced.

They don’t allow much freedom. Most fundie families aren’t big on female freedom. However some are worse than others. The Burnett’s allowed higher education for daughters and jobs outside of the family. Steve Maxwell doesn’t allow that for his daughters.

I chuckle every single time I read: Gothard Bill.

Is David Keller engaged now to Hannah Reber so he should probably be removed from Single and added to engaged.

@Bethella keeps track. Will probably update soon.

I didn't check the Duggar forum so this might be old news but in one of Jessa's baby videos -isn't it Stephan Wissman sitting beside her at the table? (can't post the image because am not skilled enough)

 

edited to add: as usual I'm the last to know - just saw this on the Duggar thread where there is a picture  too. Sorry

because I am late to the party - again

      I spotted Kindle Vella on the Amazon website late last night  and I feel like this is a concept I don’t really understand. Why would I buy a book one chapter at a time? Is there a market for purchasing books this way? Is there more to this than I noticed? I also couldn’t get it to work on my Kindle app, but that is probably user error on my part.

      FB friend who was my tour director went to Spain had this map up of the new tour they're doing in Spain now.
      I think you can all guess what caught my attention right away.
       
      And as I am an FJ denizen the gutter my mind went into almost immediately.
      And now actually I'm a bit curious about the place too.

      I’ve had to evacuate due to all the aggressive wildfires,  Mr Kool is evacuated to the hospital because of his non mobility, hopefully they find him a bed in the local care home.  Fire sucks.

      Is there anyone else who works who feels like because things are opening up and we have our vaccines and everything we are supposed to automatically feel better despite being in shut down mode for a 1.5 years. I mean how easy is it for other people to go about their lives, like nothing has happened this past what 16 months?  I am having a hard time with this. Baby steps but what would these be?

      Baby girl was born Saturday at 9pm. She came really fast, in less than an hour. An 8 pound beautiful and super healthy princess! I'm doing okay, had a bit of respiratory issues but doing better right now.

      Random vent. I hate when random aches/pains come out of nowhere. I also hate not knowing what to do. Well, that's actually not 100% accurate. I do know, but it's hard to know when. (If that makes any sense.) 
      Have a good weekend, kids. ✌️
      Picture included for something cool to look at.
