  1. Also, a while back, there was a question about Meri and losing the job, I re- watched Season 1 special and she stated specifically she lost her job OVER THE SHOW.

  2. Here in the UK on 'Sister Wives' we are way behind you in the States .. yes, that's correct, Meri did, in fact, lose her job when the family went public .. last night was the episode where they invite their non-polygymist friends over for dinner .. and share all the office gossip of what happened in their respective workplaces when the Browns' way of life was made public knowledge ..

    I'm surprised at how much I'm enjoying watching this show. it's a fantastic insight into a lifestyle choice I know absolutely nothing about .. if the kids are happy, and they seem to be well cared for, considering there are so many of them .. then I say 'Live and Let Live'.

  3. You are behind in episodes but as you will see the children are definitely not happy. This includes the 8 year wanting to live with another SW. The older ones make it clear they leave home as soon as possible.

    I used to say "live and let live" about them too.

    But when I started reading this blog, it opened my eyes. I wouldn't care how many wives Kody married or kids they had, as long as the Browns were responsible enough to pay their bills. They can't support themselves, but they keep adding to the family.

    If you ain't got the green, you shouldn't increase the Browns!
