Morie Family Update-Cherish is married!


xReems

Recommended Posts

I first heard about this family a year or two ago when someone on the old FJ board brought them up. For those who do not know--this family grew up ultra fundie but a few years back, something happened and the parents filed for divorce, followed by a bunch of restraining orders against the father and daughter, Cherish, being put in an all girls boarding school. Anyways, I saw that Cherish recently got married-I stumbled upon her mom's Facebook and saw a pic of her with Cherish and her husband. The guy looks like he's in the army and it appears they had a "court marriage" rather than a typical traditional marriage in a church. It looks like the older ones have become more wordily compared to before, which is nice to see, but still consider themselves as Christians. I'm glad to see that even through a painful divorce, the kids are all doing well and living their own lives, happily. The marriage happened a few months back, I believe, but I'm glad she found someone who makes her happy.

I remember them. Wasn't there allegations of inappropriate touching or something? I seem to remember the father strenuously denying it all and having a web page.

It might have been. I do recall that the court granted him having supervised visitations with his younger children and I do recall his son's wife filing a restraining order against him. They did have a website and he posted letters between him and Cherish which were pretty bizarre.

I don't think we ever knew why Cherish was sent away to the school or why there was a restraining order or supervised visits, but of there 10 or so kids, he was prohibited from seeing the younger ones. And yes, it does look like the family healed and became less fundie. I do wonder what ever happened to fundie dad, Brandt Morie. He was over the top.

Sorry, I know this thread is several days old, but I just made a few connections I had never made before...

Did I somehow miss the fact that the "home for girls" Cherish was sent to was the "hephzibah house"??

I was there for 15 months from March of 2009 to June of 2010 and had a awesome life changing experience!"

Uh, wow. I went to the school's website and then also read about 3/4 of a former student's experience/testimony about being at the school. How can a place like that be legal?

It shouldn't be, but most of these types of places make a point of moving to areas where local law enforcement will support them or at least turn a blind eye. Letters and phone calls are monitored and censored and the parents support the places, so there's nobody to complain. It also seems common for them to be tipped off to investigations and ship girl's home or to other locations before CPS or other officials show up.

Legally, the parents usually sign legal guardianship over to the "school" officials and they claim not to use corporal punishment anymore. In the past, they said it was just spanking and, since nobody wanted to create outrage by banning spanking or infringing upon a religious group, they were allowed to carry on.

      So..my son is getting married at the beginning of March and I tried on dresses today. I need to lose weight. I'm about 60-70 pounds overweight and I absolutely have to. I'm not one to post statuses but I'm doing everything I can to hold myself accountable. I'm sitting here wanting to stuff my face and I know this isn't the answer. I can do this. I will be okay. I'm going to make myself check in regularly. Whether or not anyone sees this, I am going to be posting.

      Is anyone here from Moore County, NC?  I hope they catch the domestic terrorists that shot up the power substations.  All to stop a drag show!  Throw the fuckers in jail.

      What do people do in the Sonoran desert? I've hiked the hikes I wanted to do. Seems like all that is left is golf, shopping at chains that exist everywhere, and stuff I've done. Oh and eating. I can only eat so many times a day. It's too cold to rent a paddleboard or swim.

      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.

      Don't know I'd charge quite that much though.

      Long time no visit…
      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 🤞
