The Dargers may know how to craft a catchy title to their online posts, but Good Lord! These people are totally totally from a different planet. Literally.
Joe Darger offers up his treatise on 'Emotional Attraction In Relationships From A Polygamous Man’s Perspective'.
It is true that we look at relationships quite different than much of society does. Yet our relationship is quite traditional in many respects, and the components that have helped make our relationship successful I believe, can help any relationship. One of those things that are different in our relationship is less of an emphasis on the sexual connection.
While I would not down play the importance of a sexual relationship in a marriage, for many people it is the foundation of their relationship. We look at it differently. If you have read Love Times Three you know our values against premarital sex for example, and the lengths we went to build an emotional and spiritual attraction. It is the idea of emotional attraction that I want to talk about today.
Excuse me, but how many children has this man sired with three woman, and he can STILL write this stuff with a straight face?
Don't forget to savor the overly huge picture of his wives, and that salacious photo of a couple "communicating". Here it is just in case it should mysteriously disappear, if you know what I mean.
Next is the article written by Valarie. All right, she was talking about an ice cream recipe.
As Valarie puts it "...Variety really is the spice of life but there is something to be said for comfort foods....I found out that home-made ice cream as well as polygamy is a generational thing in my family...How did they have enough ice, and how did they keep it cold?" You know, Valarie, I have often stayed up late at night thinking the same thing. And it's interesting to note that there is just one ice cream recipe (using white milk and pasteurized eggs because it's not cooked) but the variety comes when the cook adds mix-ins. Unfortunately, Valarie doesn't explain what the mix-ins are, but I guess it can be a variety of fruits, vegetables and Grape Nuts.
In probably the most tasteless post ever posted to a blog (and not written by either me or Lourdes Ritz-Carlton) Alina offers up what she does on those lonely nights when Joe is out of town or practicing communicating with her sisterwife cousins.
Here's an excerpt (sans the picture of Alina in bed with her new 'boyfriend'):
Vicki gave me an anniversary gift wrapped in shiny paper with a big bow and a very kind, sincere letter attached. In the letter she expressed, “Please accept this gift as a token of my appreciation for you and understanding that I know how challenging it can be to ‘share’ sometimes. This won’t necessarily make it easier but might ‘comfort’ you at times."Don't forget to read the comment from Janey, whose observation was SPOT ON if not well received by the other commenters. It's too bad the Browns didn't think of this as one of their business ventures. I'm sure Janelle could hook up with new friend Phil and score some Phildoes and make a REAL boyfriend experience, if you know what I mean.
You know, as I think about this a little longer, maybe the Darger sisterwives aren't aware of the message they are sending to Joe. They are lonely, and they want some variety in their life. Sad, isn't it?
Well, its time for me to catch the plane back to my planet so I can eat some chocolate ice cream and do some communicating with my 'boyfriend'. Here are the links:
