I am so happy for Sarah and I genuinely hope that her future is everything she has ever dreamed of. Their closeness and affection tells me that they are well matched and comfortable with each other, which I love for them.

In my head, I have thoughts about the first date conversation Sarah had with Kory… “so there are things you should know about my raising, weirdly unusual things involving bean burritos and ceiling fans…”

 I’m just glad Kory didn’t run away. Sarah looks so happy in that photo and I couldn’t be happier for her!!! Go Sarah, go (and don’t invite dad)!!!

He has 10 siblings all named with K names and has been raised fundie. I doubt Maxwell weirdness surprises him.

I'm happy for her. She looked beautiful. I like that she wore shoes and didn't go barefoot like Chelsy. 

Since the wedding was in Kansas, they probably all went. I was thinking maybe Christopher and Anna Marie stayed home, but they were probably there. I'm surprised Anna Marie has brother who isn't fundie, but if they went to his wedding, they can handle Sarah's wedding. It would've surprised if any of the other brothers refused to go. 

John and Chelsy did not have a no touch courtship and seemed to have chemistry. I thought some of the pictures with Jesse and Anna showed chemistry. Some people get tired taking photos. 

I just noticed something on the blog. Around the time Jesse got married it said Steve and Teri had eight children with five of them married. Now it says this about Steve and Teri:

Quote

Happily married for 45 years with eight fantastic children (now adults) and excited grandparents to 17.

I give the credit to Maxwell daughters (and some of their brothers) with getting themselves out of the borg.

I wish Sarah and Kory many years of happiness.

I haven't had coffee yet and math is hard.

17 grandkids??

Melanie and Nathan:  6 (and Susannah)

Christopher and Anna Marie:  6

John and Chelsy: 3

Elissa and Joe:  3

=18

What am I missing?

John and Chelsy were all over eachother on their wedding day. Well Chelsy basically clung to him and he seemed to enjoy it. That surprised me. But I’m guessing Sarah and Kori were similar in their wedding day.

Well, apparently hell hasn’t frozen over, so Steve must be very surprised that this actually happened. I know I am. But I’m also glad. This generation is breaking free!

Hooray for Sarah!

My question to ponder: If Sarah had still been living with S and T would she be married today?

There are 18 grandchildren.  I don't think they ever updated to include Madeline.

No kidding.
The photos from Christopher's & Anna Marie's wedding (2010) and then Jesse's & Anna's in 2020 were taken 10 years apart and they look much the same with modified side hugs and visible awkwardness. Certainly, the loving partnership in that photo of Kory & Sarah is not evident in the earlier Maxwell wedding photos.
Re: family attendance. Since the wedding was in KS I'd guess that the family were all there. We'll never know for sure but it would be interesting to find out how much if any influence Stevehovah had over the wedding. Was it at the church whose pastor seems to have played a pivotal role in the lives of the Maxwell daughters?

They both sort of stare at each other and then stare at the camera…

I’m betting their first kiss as a married couple wasn’t as awkward as many fundie first kisses. I say this because I would bet good money Kory has kissed a girl before. Even if he and Sarah decided to wait, I’m betting it’s not his first. He went to a public high school and is 43 years old. He may still be fundie but I’m guessing he has kissed at least one other girl in his 43 years. And that experience may help with killing some awkwardness of a first kiss at the wedding. Along with the fact that they aren’t a no touch courtship couple. That helps a lot too.

I highly doubt it.  Getting out of the house seemed to completely change the lives of all three Maxwell daughters for the better.

I didn’t realize that Sarah’s husband went up public school. Do you know if all of his siblings did?  

Seems like they did.  They went to regular colleges too.  One is a CPA.  One is a personal trainer.  Some of the daughters have jobs.  Kory played football.  I personally don't think they're fundie.  A big Christian family doesn't make fundies.  To me they are evangelical.

Did Kory go to college?

Exactly.  Quiverful extends beyond the fundies.  It's a philosophy.  I've known quiverful Eastern Orthodox.  One small parish has three families of them.  Name games abound in the world outside fundies.  Simply that so many of the family go to an SBC church would lean them much more toward evangelical than fundie.  That doesn't mean they aren't conservative, but conservative views do not equate to being a religious fundie.

Recipe please!

To the wedding attire: I really like her dress. As others said, it wasn't modified beyond recognition to be modest. We always complain about how bad the dresses are and that there are modest dresses to purchase and she managed to purchase one. I would like to see what it looks like when she stands up. Either way, I like it. It is modern and meets majority modesty standards.

Not a fan of her dress, though that picture doesn’t display it to its best advantage. I might like it better if we got a standing photo of the couple. It’s modest without screaming “modest!” and it’s suitable for a bride not in the first blush of youth without screaming “matronly!” The important thing is that she loved it and felt beautiful in it. 

This is one couple I genuinely wish well. Sarah deserves all the happiness in the world.

I think I saw it somewhere in my digging travels, but I don't remember which college.  It would seem like a government job of that capacity would require a college degree.  He's probably very smart, much smarter than the Maxwell sons.  Went to public school and probably university, played football, held a regular job, and is a "good" Christian. Imagine that, Steve.  It really is possible to let them go and get good adult children out of it.

I wonder if Sarah wants a gaggle of kids? I always got the impression that she might like things on the quieter side. In any case, at their ages, the family size might be limited. I hope they are happy and that her sisters also find happiness in there own lives, not matter what that might look like. I would love to know the catalyst for Steve loosening his strangle hold!

And from what I can see, Kory’s siblings have average sized families (1-3 kids) and those who are old enough go to school. They range across the conservative scale but but aren’t fundie like the Maxwells imo.

Sarah looked radiant. I wish her and Kory all the happiness in the world.

I am glad at her age the likelihood of her having a lot of kids is remote. Less children into the fundie world is a good thing! (that is what I think of all the older single fundies, less kids- win!)

I wonder if the belt isn't "something old", maybe part of Gigi's wedding outfit? Or a last-minute "something borrowed". . .They look deliriously happy. For fun, contrast Sarah in her wedding dress with her outfit (and demeanor) in the final titus2 blog post.

      Ohh jeeze, GrandBerry6 just came to me, snuggled his face in my neck and barfed, all over me. In my neck, in my hair, on my face, down inside my nightie all over the front of my nightie. Ohh FUCK! Bath, washed hair, cleaned sofa. Good times, good times.

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.
