The show is like a train wreck on many levels, but it is still intriguing enough for me to keep watching. I would still live to know the total price of the 4 houses. Mary should be fine with a small ranch... Geez. She must like to clean....

This whole thing IMO is about to implode. Kody IMO loves Robyn and Meri needs to go to a hospital for insanity. She is just about ready to blow up. Janelle gives Meri death stares and Christine just smiles like she is always at a party. Kody tosses his hair around like a teenage girl. This is a mess and don't see this lasting. Since Robyn I think Kody just cares for her.

So I take it you're not signing up to be wife number 5?

I do have to agree with much of what you said. It seems like a powder keg -- or at the very least people seem to be crying all the time. Yet many of the girls say they see the love between the wives and they want that some day.

Somewhere between "the best thing ever" and "a living hell" is probably the truth. I would not want it personally!

She kept insisting that she had to have the 5th bedroom in order to get the "craft" room and wet bar. Why on earth doesn't she use one of the empty bedrooms as a craft room? The whole thing makes no sense.

The first couple of seaons the wives seemed happy and to all get along really well. Now they all seem unhappy, and it came out that Meri and Janelle have never liked each other and still don't get along. Have things changed that much, or have they always been unhappy and just edited it to look like they liked each other in the past? According to their book, Meri only likes Robin, and barely tolerates the others. I just wonder what the truth really is.
Weren't Meri and Janelle SIL before they meet up with Kody? Also wasn't Janelle they only one raised in a regular family?

When Kody got up during the graduation to find Robyn, I think we all knew who was his favorite. And it sounds like he and Robyn are planning to have more kids together, as he let Meri know he would have more children in the future.

So, is Meri getting the 5 bedrooms? I didn't see that resolved.

Another thing I observed was when he comes in to talk to Meri at her house about the homes and she is a little ticked off that he just sits down all business like and starts talking and she wants him to say hello and kiss her. She probably hasn't seen him in 4 days and he just doesn't care that he hasn't seen her. If my husband and I hadn't seen each other in 4 days he wouldn't be acting all casual but kody can b/c he has other spousal relationships besides Meri.

These are my thoughts exactly.

Robin is a drama queen and needs to be the center of attention. Looking in from the outside, she is going to be the wedge that tears the family apart.

I think seeing home movies from when the family was young and all of the kids were little and living in the same home is really sweet. I am sure they had a very happy life. On more than one occasion I have said that what I really need a good wife! I just cannot fathom seeing my hubby every 4 days.

I do think Meri is being selfish about the house and I think she is manipulating the situation. I also think Cody is being ridiculous making her decide about the in-vitro. Obviously he wants to do it, he just needs to leave it to her to decide when she is ready. Unless it is a resounding yes, it remains a no.

Janelle was married to Meri's brother for a short time and they divorced. Also, Janelle's mother turned polyg later in life and is now married to Kody's dad as another wife.

I just feel so bad for these women, they look sad, the only one who looks slightly happy is Robin!

I just couldn't imagine sharing my husband with one woman let alone three I never feel like my husband and I have enough alone time with work, three kids and two houses(we are remodeling and getting ready to move), I just don't know how they do it all!

I don't know if anyone has mentioned it but Janelle did leave the marriage for a couple years.

Janelle and Christine should run off together.

Reminds me of a line from Big Love:
Quote:
OK, here's how it goes; it's complicated, so try to follow along. I'm 32nd of 56 children, and when I married Roman I became my own step-grandma, because my father married Roman's daughter, Baylene. [conversation continues off screen] So, little Josie, that makes you my step-grandma, and I'm your stepmom. And when I had Alby he became my great-uncle and I became his great-great-grandmother. Which of course makes me my own grandmother.

That was an interesting link. I had heard she left for a while, but I had no idea it was for a few years. I wonder if she'll leave again when the show ends and everyone will be relying on her to work and support the family.

That lifestyle is not for me, but I guess it can work for other people. I do have to say that I would like to have sister wives, just not share the husband, in fact i wouldn't need the husband.
I too feel that he is more attracted to and has a better relationship with Robyn. I felt awful when he got up to search for Robyn during the ceremony. I mean really, Robyn, is a big girl and if she gets lost she should go back to her car. How many times is Logan going to graduate. I feel that he is more lovely with Robyn as you could clearly see from when he met with Merry to talk about the house. I mean he really looks like he is trying to be attracted to the other wives, but it only looks genuine with Robyn.
And seriously, IVF when you are worried about money? I know the desire to have children, believe me, but for the sake of the family, when you don't have the money you need to think about that.
I do think that Merry is selfish about the house. She really only needs a 2 bedroom, 3 at the most. I think she feels entitled because all the other women need a bigger house.
I think that Christine and Janelle could do fine on their own without Kody. I think Merry is a mess and Robyn just wants someone to take care of her and her children.

Meri seems to think that she's entitled to a house as big as the others because she shouldn't be "punished" for a situation that wasn't her own doing, meaning not being able to have more children. But that's not the issue. The fact is, she doesn't need that big house, and having it doesn't change the fact that she can't have more children. Her daughter could very well be going off to college in a year. (I think?)

If any of the other kids want to stay with her (and why would they? Their own mother's homes are right on the cul-du-sac) on a potentially rare occasion...rough it! Pull out a sleeping bag and sleep on the floor. Get a cot. Something! But it's ridiculous to think they all get equal amounts of money to buy houses. What if some of the kids all want to stay at Janelle's or Christine's or Robyn's? They won't have spare bedrooms.

I agree with the comment upthread about using one of the FOUR bedrooms for a hobby room. And who exactly, and how often, is she entertaining that she needs a wet bar? Many people manage to entertain without a wet bar. Geez.

Only knowing a little about their relationships (got the book from the library and didn't get past page 3 or so), I feel that Meri holds herself in high regard for being wife #1. I really like Janelle and Christine, but they've had to deal with Meri all these years. Then YEARS later, cutesie needy Robyn comes into the picture, and wham...turns everything upside down. And while that's happening, they make a mad dash away from their long-term, built-to-accommodate-the-situation home. They were settled with their families, in the same house with 3 apartments, Kody seeing everyone every day, and then they were forced into situations where many decisions had to be made, and they had to all work it out together. Dear me, that can be a nightmare for a monogamous relationship.

I like the show, and I like the family, altho my likes have shifted a bit. I'm all for Janelle and Christine...the other wives, not so much. Polygamy isn't my thing, but that's not how I was raised anyway. If it works for them...with ups and downs, which most marriages endure...good for them.
