I'm willing to bet Big Joe has his wives on a pretty strict diet/exercise program. Weekly weigh-ins would not at all surprise me.

OMG, as crazy and sad as that sounds; I agree with you. The thing that I found really nuts was the fact that Merri was acting like she would like Kody to be more like that. Jenelle was kinda making fun of Joe saying "don't tell me we're leaving at 9:00, and then not leave til 10:00..." I thought Merri was going to agree with her, but she did the complete opposite. She said that's someone that she could be married to and then kept saying little things about how much she liked him Honestly, I was kinda shocked, and it was so weird. Don't get me wrong, I'm all for promptness, but the whole thing was just so weird.

I also thought it was so sad how the kids were talking about him. With the exception of the one boy who said poly wasn't for him, the rest of them acted like Joe was God and that they worshiped the ground he walked on, and like he was superior to their mom(s).

Ok, so I'm about half way thru the book (Becoming Sister Wives) that was mentioned here, and have come to the conclusion that Meri is just a plain out b---h. Now Janelle is my favorite, lol.

I have not read the book but I figure Merri figures she was here first and she had more rights. I am pretty sick of her baby thing. Honest to gosh....really?

I have not read this whole thread but WHERE do they did they get the money?

Out of curiosity I went to the sister wives website. They are designing clothes and accessories. REALLY? I know this sounds mean but I already know how to look fat and frumpy...WHY would anyone want to buy something they design. I always wish Stacey and Clinton would show up and help them look less dowdy.

Maybe it's how the show is edited, but it just feels like the marriage between Kody and Meri is more similar to a traditional monogamous relationship and the marriage to Robyn is trophy wife, Janelle is business partner and Christine is just because he needed another wife. If any of that makes sense. And I agree, how are they going to afford 4 big huge homes?

I agree. The Brown children were saying that whoever had the most knowledge on a subject made the family decisions in that area, and the one boy said that Papa Joe was always the most knowledgeable in all areas. It was a little weird in how he said it, too. "Papa Joe" also seemed to want to tell the Browns how to live or that they were somehow wrong in their feelings and decisions.

I think that the boy that said that was from a previous marriage of the third wife. It may be a name that he chose or was told to use because he's not his biological father.

I am with you! I found it weird that the other family referred to their Father as "Papa Joe".

This was my assumption as well. This is the name he uses for his stepfather.

I thought this too. She wanted a friend.

I just saw on amazon that the other poly family has a book out as well! It's called love times three. I wonder how many others will be trying to cash in on this new fad.
