I think a lot of it has to do with the fact that: 1) the state of Utah and the Church of LDS (which holds a lot of influence in Utah) both want to separate themselves from their polygamist past and a famous polygamist family from Utah could be seen as reinforcing that stereotype, and 2) the law is useful way to nail those polygamists who break other laws (underage marriage, child abuse, welfare fraud, etc.) and the Brown family was publicly flaunting that law.

I really and truly don't care how people want to live their lives or construct their families, but I think a pretty good case could be made for the fact that polygamist marriage isn't good for society and most criminal laws are designed to look out for society's interest. For example, very few men could afford to support that many wives and children, it leads to less involvement for fathers, creates a shortage of potential spouses for young men, etc.

Anyone want to bring this thread back to life and discuss this season?? I am wondering what each of those houses cost they are buying! The income from the show must be buying them...

I'm rather tired of them having credit drama while they pick out wet bars etc. for four new homes.

I am curious if fertility treatments are covered by insurance in Nevada?

I assume TLC will be picking up the tab for that too.

Meri is deciding whether to go through invitro.

I supposed that will be the big cliffhanger at the end of this season.

I'm also over their "we have no money" I want a wet bar and craft room. GMAFB. I'm finding them very boring this season. I'm sure their salaries from the show are buying the houses.

I really like the show when it first came on, now not so much. Their made up drama promo's aren't even drawing me in.

Once these shows hit the "watch me spend all the money I'm making from the show" stage, they get very boring. That appears to be what we have here.

I wonder what will become of them when the show is over and they don't have all the money anymore. Will they be able to keep the homes? I don't think any of them are working right now. They just have their jewelry/clothing website. Is anyone really going to buy any of that stuff?

I can't wait to see that other polyg family next week.

Also, I was surprised that Maddie is the only one who said she does not want the lifestyle.

A few of the boys have said they only wanted one wife.

I have a feeling that Janelle is almost done with being a sister wife. She seems really really unhappy. I agree that Mari shouldn't be giving the same amount of money since she doens't have as many kids.


I thought it was cruel when Cody said I can have more kids. What a slap in the face to Mari

I was laughing at Meri's insistence on a wet bar when they don't even drink! 5 bedrooms and she has one child leaving for college in a year?!?!

Now she is going to have 5 bedrooms while everyone else has 4. I'd be ticked off by this too if my kids all had to share bedrooms and stuff in together while she has a house full of empty bedrooms. SHe does seem to insist she wants more than everyone without actually explaining why or what she plans to do with all the empty rooms. Her one child is going to college. ALl the rooms will be empty.

What about when her "other" children come spend the night? Where will they sleep if she doesn't have enough bedrooms? I am sure they spend the night every now and again with the other "moms."
