*My maternal grandma went to Southwestern Oklahoma for a couple of years but had to drop out because of the depression.

She's a good writer.  I enjoyed that article.

Any guesses on honeymoon plans?  A short, local one … maybe even venturing one or 2 states away?  Or a longer, really interesting one to a forgein  country?

Maybe even Steve and Teri realized that keeping a 39 YO, nearing middle aged woman at home under lock and key, and yoked to her 2, younger sisters was ridiculous. And Thank God they came to their bloody senses ! 
 

Sarah is 40 and up until last Saturday, her dad was seemingly controlling her life.

I don’t think there’s a way Steve would’ve approved of her husband’s family. I’m so glad she now has more freedom.

They're still definitely Christian though and there's no doubting Kory's religious commitment given his involvement in children's and youth ministry.

Kory may also have been a a 43-year-old virgin, and he owns his own house in a low cost of living area so he probably has little, if any, debt. 

He might not have been the husband Steve imagined for Sarah 10-20 years ago, when Steve was probably rejecting spouses left, right and centre, but I think he'd got to the stage where he had to accept Kory as 'good enough' if he was not going to continue to be seen in his circles as 'that guy who failed to get any of his daughters married'. 

Especially given the types of Christians they were now spending time with at church are likely to be much more like Kory's family and less like the Maxwells (not homeschooling, regular jobs, regular churches, pants wearing for all the women). Steve might be having the occasional cry about 'naked' women at that church, but they've embraced this world now, and with the kids all adults he can't really make them go back.

TIL that Kwyn is female. Not only did she attend public high school, she played varsity basketball. And then went on to a public university.

I think we can safely assume Steve had no voice in the Kory-Sarah match.

I definitely think Steve (maybe begrudgingly) approved the match but don’t believe he tried to initiate it.

Was the wedding held at this church? Who presided?

If officiant was the pastor who seems to have been instrumental in liberating the Maxwell daughters, I doubt he'd allow Steve to run roughshod over the engaged couple or their wedding plans.

Hopefully  Sarah and Kory initiated their own match.

To me the big separation was moving out. A happy marriage of her own choosing is great, but the step away from Steve happened well before the wedding itself. The moving is likely what made this wedding possible.

(Or perhaps you meant “last year” instead of “last Saturday”?)

There are TONS of dresses with sleeves and they cover their shoulders. There are high neck options! That was completely unknown back in 2009. I think it’s a million times easier today to find a modest wedding dress. 

I was looking for something on the COSTCO website and they have a link to a modest clothing site.

That's a great article. The dad is a retired school teacher and coach, and yes, the kids went to public school. Actually sounds like a wonderful family. Considering that the daughter was 19 when she made her first pie, they weren't training the daughters as sister moms. 

So happy for Sarah!

That would be my guess. Maybe Colorado or New Mexico.

I think Steve's head is exploding.

Sarah has married into a family in which the children:

  • attended public school
  • played sports
  • went to college
  • chose the careers they wanted
  • have careers where they work for other people
  • most likely the sons weren't forced to buy a house for cash before marriage
  • the daughters weren't forced to be SAHD waiting in vain for Prince Charming
  • the daughters weren't forced to wear long denim skirts only
  • there is no worship of the almightly schedule and ceiling fan dusting

In Stevehovah's world Sarah is now an extended family member. A Bollinger not a Maxwell. Stevehovah will have no say in Sarah and Kory's life. Never. Ever.  Never.

To paraphrase The Wizard of Oz -- Sarah's not in Kansas anymore.

The Derrick Dillard of the Maxwell family! LOL

Wow, look at those bridesmaid dresses! Cute and just at knee length! And Sarah's dress looks nearly-sleeveless in these pics. She looks happy, and I hope they are happy together and get to enjoy life on their own terms.

And also that they only have as many children (or none) as they want and that those kids get to go to real school and have real friends and do real activities and grandpa Steve doesn't get a say and isn't allowed to make them feel bad about their choices.

 

EDITED because I didn't realize Chelsy's insta was private. Ooops, sorry!

Sarah's face radiates complete and total joy in those pictures. I've never seen that in any of the Maxhell photos. Kory only has eyes for her.

I think all the girls have made great strides in finding their own voice and with that, Independence. I also think with the lives these girls have led, moving out AND getting married within 12 months IS HUGE. 12 months is like 5 seconds- My own son, your typical lapsed Catholic heathen, has been with his GF for almost 2 years. They moved in together at the 1 year mark. They are 31 and 33 with advanced degrees and good jobs. They are talking marriage, but both of these people have so much more life experiences than Sarah. 
 

Wonder if Sarah will sell her place or rent it out for passive income? 
 

ETA- Her dress is beautiful ! Well done, Sarah-

I hate to be the stick in the mud but Chelsy’s Instagram is private so those pics can’t be posted on FJ.

ETA: oh I see others beat me to it.

If Colorado, would that be "what some might call a honeymoon"?

1 more question. I’d love to know Steve and Teri’s involvement, especially Teri’s , with regards to wedding planning. Since Sarah is the first Maxwell daughter to get married, I wonder who had the final say?

While she did move to her own place ( my guess is she had already met Koryand they were thinking their relationship might lead to marriage), I never got the impression that she bought a residence but was just renting an apartment or condo on her own. Would be interesting to know if it was in Kansas or Oklahoma!
 

She did buy her own car before the move and blogged about Steve helping her with that.

      I would have loved to start my jogging journey again but is cloudy and rainy and a little bit snowy. Damn it. Maybe I will start nevertheless. When I start in shitty weather I might continue in good weather.

      Disgusted with Catholic Church over Cardinal Pell's funeral this week. It really reflects poorly on the church and should be a red flag to Catholics.

      I've been away since about 10 PM on Monday evening.  My husband noticed that my speech was a bit slurred, called my daughter to see if she concurred and they both agreed that I needed to go to the hospital.  There I was taken back within minutes to be evaluated for a stroke.   My BP was sky-high. I. undressed and was helped into a hospital gown.  The PureWick did not work that night so when I had to go I just went.  (I do want a PureWick if I ever get urinary stress incontenence though and would need to wear diapers.). 
      I had a CT scan fairly early the next morning and it confirmed that I'd sufffered a mild stroke,  I had an MRI that afternoon which confirmed the both the mild stroke and no other damage and yet I had another CT scan -this time with a contrast medium injected.  I was allowed the Heart Healthy diet and my BP had dropped to 180/100.  They don'y want to drop the BP too rapidly so it has dropped enough to turn to Lisinipril to drop it further.
      After the ER. I was sent to the ICU and stayed until I was discharged this afternoon.  The staff were all really nice and my husband and two daughters were with me most of the time, helping out.  My oldest daughter's van was in the shop so I let her borrow the MINI since I knew she could drive a stick.  When she was visiting yesterday afternoon, her husband was in the ER waiting on a CT can and today, she was there when the speech pathologist was visiting.  She was able to get some good advice from her as her husband is currently unable to swallow.
      Anyway I'm home.  My dogs and the cat to see me home, especially my dachsie, were happy to see me home.
      A couple of things I learned:
      I need to teach my husband about loading the dishwasher.
      and 
      Jill would never be able to handle bedpans.

      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.
