I think that’s a general issues with very tall teenagers though. Most hunch so they don’t stand out, towering over their peers in general - at least in most cases. Maybe it’s different with the much more intense sport culture in US schools (there are definitely no school teams, school competitions or even many school extra sport opportunities here, that’s all done after school) so even our tall teenage boys are more likely to be conscious about their height in school. And yes, tall females have definitely another layer of being self conscious in regard to their height and males.

Being a tall female in the US is definitely a double edged sword. Everyone wants you to play sports and think you must be amazing at basketball. But then you can’t date anyone shorter than you because of gender roles. So it is a whole mind fuck of both good and bad when it comes to being a tall teen girl.

I'm not an expert but my husband did come to the US on a K-1 visa and I do remember part of the process was having to answer questions about whether or not he'd ever been here illegally.  I'm not sure what happens if you say you have been here illegally though. Maybe it doesn't automatically exclude you but I'm sure it doesn't help!

She will have to return to Germany and apply from there. I am sponsoring a Mexican man married to an American woman and he had to go back to his state and apply at the consul. Then it will be up to the US consul in Germany as to whether she can get back in. Marrying Trace will not be an answer to staying here - the consul does not have to approve her return visa. My friend was detained for a few weeks even though he came here at 14 on his own and has been married to an American for 18 years, owns a home and has two children.

Found this picture of the Romeike family plus Trace on Lydia‘s brother’s insta. My, but they look so very German… 😂

Anyway, seems he’s pretty much part of the family already.

I am pretty sure that picture was taken at Katie's wedding, which means her while family was invited. They could be family friends or it could be a sign that Trace and Lydia will be engaged soon.

Lydia is skiing with some of the Bates in Breckinridge, CO right now, per her and Josie's Instagram. Engagement on the slopes? Not sure if all the parental units are there to make it a fundy-approved event, though.

With the Bates no longer being filmed, maybe Nathan will shock us and get engaged without the whole family observing. [Like a normal modern person!]

I also think they will be engaged soon too. This is his second serious relationship. He’s going to lock it down ASAP.

My friend who was 6' as a teen partially fell in love (and married) a man who was "the first person I kissed looking up."

I don't think Lydia will have to go anywhere for them to get married. I (an American) married a German (not a US resident) in New York 3 years ago and no one asked anything about our immigration status. We had to show ID (he used his passport) and state our places of birth but that was it. No social security number required. If she has a driver's license the fact that she's not American may not even come up. 

Marrying Trace won't give her legal status, but I'm pretty sure she can get married and then just continue staying the way she's been doing. 

 

ETA: I don't agree that it's fair for Lydia to have to go back to Europe and wait months to be able to come back if she wants legal status. Her parents brought her to the US illegally as a child and that's not her fault. She's like any other Dreamer as far as I'm concerned, shitty beliefs or not.

I think a Nathan egagement would be shocking, so soon after his wedding!  🤣

I assume you mean Trace?

As if I can keep these mediocre Southern white boys apart.😁 Trace, Colt, Dakota, Trig, Steele, Zeke, Wade, whatever.

What ever that undereducated-dubiously-employed manboy's name is-- it will be interesting if we start to see the impact of the UpTV revenue stream going dry on events like engagements and weddings.  

I don't think we will see the a bunch of family members trekking to as many surprise "destination engagement ceremonies" (like past "surprise trips" to Key West, Utah, Italy, Orlando) in the future.

On the other hand it might be an interesting Bates family/Sister Wives combo show. Imagine what happens when an ardent fundamentalist receives a message from God that he is to engage in plural marriage.

I don’t know if I want to laugh, cry or throw up at the thought! Too many emotions. Probably depends on how vile I think the patriarch is. Considering the ego it takes to think god wants you to have a personal harem, probably only the truly awful ones would want/do it.

TLC put many polygamists on television. With the exception of the Browns, every single one of them was basically the Duggars/Bates with polygamy.

Lydia’s brother is a male model. I’m sorry but he’s going to be exposed to a lot of worldliness as a model. I’m betting he won’t get married for a long time and if he does, she won’t be a meek sheltered fundie girl.

Maybe someone who splits the difference like Tiffany?

Is Trace employed besides picking up gigs with Chad? Is Lydia going to be the main provider, a la Tiffany, from her photography and modeling jobs? The Bates men are duds.

Are you confusing her with Lydia Plath, or are there two fundie families with daughters named Lydia and sons who are models?

No, Lydia’s brother Christian is a model. She’s tagged him in some pics on her Instagram if you want to check him out.

Her brother also posted a set of pictures he did with Trace and Warden. 

On another note, it seems Trace is getting into making reels for everyone on Instagram. .

It's an odd coincidence, isn't it? Except with Micah Plath, I sort of get the hype, because damn, that kid is gorgeous! Doesn't come across as too bright, tbh, but definitely not lacking in the looks department. Whereas with Christian Romeike, I'm just... meh. As far as I'm concerned, he looks just like most of the boys in my daughter's class. But hey, there is no accounting for taste. (FWIW, my 16-year-old agrees with both assessments).

And that was my shallow post for this month. Sorry!

      First snow storm of the season hit today. It got windy tonight, and we lost power. Somehow this continues to be a shock to PSE. Why they refuse to upgrade the infrastructure or do something so that 10s of thousands of people don’t lose power and heat literally every time it’s windy, I do not understand. We live in the Pacific Northwest. It gets windy!

      Nebraska's new football coach is an evangelical bullshit artist who participates in "Man Up Ministries" conferences in the off season. Their motto is "Fighting for Biblical Manhood". Excuse me while I go vomit.

      COVID has finally caught up with me. Dad tested positive first, last Friday, then my mother, brother and I all tested positive today. Main symptom is feeling really really tired. Hopefully it doesn’t get much worse 🤞

      Do I wear it?
      i was given a vintage, 70 year old mink coat. It fits like it was made for me. Somehow my cousin, who is 8 years older than me came into 3 gorgeous fur coats from a granddaughter of a woman her mother knew. We’re talking women who died in the mid 60’s.  None of them would fit her or any other of the women in my family. Yay for essentially being a ball. Everyone else is about 5’7 or more and all outweigh me by 50+. 
       
      it is just gorgeous. What women in Skokie and Highland Park many years ago, when I still lived there would call a “serviceable” fur. It was the fur they’d wear to a good restaurant, but not the opera or symphony.
      do I wear it? I’d love to, and I live in hunting country so fur isn’t looked down on. But is it wrong?  Arrrgh god its pretty.
