I wonder if they ever considered buying a townhouse unit. Each wife could have their own house while still being very close to the others.

They could have put connecting doors in like a hotel and Kody wouldn't have even needed to go outside to get to the next wife's house for the night.

Seriously though, a nice townhouse building could have given them the space they needed at a much lower cost than 4 separate houses.

I have never built a house but I thought it odd that they were already picking out carpet and tile when they haven't actually bought the houses. Is this normal or was the drama at the real estate office manufactured too?

Well from experience, when we bought a new house we did pick out the carpet, exterior paint and brick etc long before the houses were finished. Otherwise, they couldn't have finished them! The builder has to know what to put in the house as far as finishes as well as what brick, stone and paint colors to put on the outside. Its a bit of a leap of faith on the builders part to build a house to the specifications of the proposed buyer when in reality a lot of things can go wrong. Of course if something goes wrong, I believe the buyer can lose their earnest money/deposit which helps protect the builder.

A loan isn't completely approved and certain until the day you close. Something can go wrong, a lay off, pay cut or someone can do something stupid like buy a new car or furniture just before closing thinking it will be fine and slip under the wire.

So they are preapproved and it must look good but until they sign on the dotted line nothing is certain.

This is standard. We have bought 2 houses from a builder in new subdivisions. We chose paint colors and flooring and cabinets we liked. But knew that we wouldn't have the houses for sure until we closed. We closed on the home and then received the keys.

I think I read somewhere that she was an accountant. They have mentioned in the past that Janelle is always the one who handles the finances so that makes sense.

In the after show, the woman who interviewed them pretty much got Meri to admit she was being ridiculous an selfish about the wet bar. I wonder if the other wies felt secretly vindicated when they heard that.

It is pretty clear that Meri and Robyn are pretty tight. I wonder if Janelle and Christine ever feel left out.

Honestly, I find it a bit disappointing that the bankruptcies and Janelle originally being married to Meri's brother are never mentioned. They must know that many fans use forums/internet to poke around and thus find out about these things. I would respect them much more if they would talk .
Janelle was married to Meris brother?? WTH Guess I missed that one. What a train wreck! So what happened, Janelle was married to Meri's brother and when Kody started liking her Meri just sat back and said nothing? Wouldn't you think she might have said something like "you better back off Kody, that s my brother shes married to".

Oh well, it just keeps getting better or maybe stranger would be a better word.

The house they had in UTAH was like a triplex. Each wife had her own kitchen living space and bedrooms..there was a central main entry and a common space back yard. I was ammazed they did try and find a big prebuilt home and either add on needed rooms. The ladies do seem to be really looking for jobs. No real reasom Meri could not work. Not sure the need for these large homes as many of the kids will soon be leaving the nest. Hope TLC is paying them well--atleast enough to pay off these homes. Also do these kids have any kind of medical insurance? I remember there were issues when one got sick last season and there were worries about paying the bill.

Janelle had Logan before Meri had Mariah … wow, I did not know Janelle was married before. Must have been a very short marriage.

If you want to add to the twist and turns... Dont forget that Janelles mom is married to Kody's dad.

Yes. He is father to all the kids except Robyn's oldest 3 from her first marriage.

A Janelle has a business degree and worked in the state welfare department in Utah plus had some kind of kitchen storage home based business on the side.

Kody was (still is??) in billboard advertising.

Okay I'm trying to get this all straight but I'm confused. Janelle was married before Kody? And how many years were Kody and Meri married before Janelle came along? So Janelle worked in the state welfare department, didn't I read somewhere that they received state assistance?
