Silly Saturday! Sister Wives Commitment Ceremony



It's Saturday again already! In addition to our free discussion, here's a good place to help the Browns plan their commitment ceremony. 
We've already had a post on what should be on a mission statement -
http://sisterwivesblog.blogspot.com/2013/03/brown-family-mission-statement.html

Now let us know what you think the Brown's should have going on during their commitment ceremony. And yes, we will be counting to see how many times they say this before actually doing it!

  1. I get to post the first comment! For once I'm not behind! I...don't know what to say now...

    Is the commitment ceremony between the women too? Or does Cody just go down the line? Chronological order or by favorite?

    1. Any way you want them to do it!

    2. What if we do a kind of factorial commitment ceremony, where every adult has to exchange vows with every other adult for a total of six vow exchanges. Can you see Meri and Janelle exchanging vows and sealing it by kissing their new (/new-used) bride? How fun!

      Delete
    3. Sockie, I think (or I should say, I'm guessing) that the Browns will commit to being a family and not each other, using the points in their mission statement.

    The color scheme will be...hmmm...oh I know, BROWN! *rolls eyes* They should take their re-commitment vows across a wet bar filled with pasties. Kody will design some stupid looking "iconic joo-ree" in a heart shape (they seem to think they came up with the heart design - go figure) that is made to look like a puzzle of 5 pieces that have all "been together from the beginning", because thats what is most "em-poor-tent" after all. The kids will all be sitting around in normal clothes, looking at their phones, being bored out of their minds because they have been through all this nonsense before with Robyn, and don't feel the need to do it again. Except for Mariah, who will be there watching intently, so she will know what to do when she becomes "sister wife". Truely will be dancing around in the background, while Robyn smacks at her to shoo her away from her shining moment with her lost boy, surfer reject, over the hill, knight, I mean, court jester in shining, I mean, tarnished armor, I mean, wrinkled clothes. Christine will have to leave the ceremony early, I mean, right before it all begins, so that she can cook the reception feast of peanut butter fritos, fish stick tacos, mock tapioca pudding, and burned toast from the oven, which will set off the smoke detectors, which Robyn and Mariah will mistake as being a sign from above (literally) that they have made the right choice in choosing the polygamist lifestyle. Janelle will be constantly looking at her watch, as she has an open house she has to host, and Robyn and Meri are talking way to much for her. No one has time for that. Kody is disappointed by all the interruptions and lack of "commitment" by his family, that he has to be taken away by ambulance because he gave himself whiplash. By the time it is all said and done, TLC has 2 seasons worth of material to use. However, in the end, only Meri and Robyn are "re-committed" to each other, and TLC decides to use only 1 season's worth of footage, and drag the Sister Wives rapid fans into yet another season with the hook, "Will this 'real' family, living 'real' lifes. find time in their busy $$$$ making lives, to fully commit to being a 'real' polygamist family? Stay tuned to find out!"

  6. Attire-
    I do hope the Brown Babes resurrect those fetching "brown" dressy frocks that they all wore for Sobbin's Sealin' Day.
    I thought that was such an inspired touch.....Browns wearing brown.
    Although granted, some alterations (plus for two, and minus for one) are due for the original three co-committers.
    And maybe a few touches of bling and glitz added to the brown gowns now that they are Vegas babes. Actually, Meri's orange glow should go nicely with the brown.

    Kody should be all done up in a ringmaster's black pants, boots and red cutaway coat...with the required black top hat. Should look interesting with his hair.
    But instead of the usual ringmaster's whip, he should be waving the four sets of McMansion keys on a BE-junk adorned scepter.

    Venue-
    They should have the Should be Committed Ceremony either in the all-you-can-eat buffet section of the Silverton casino....or atop the famous *rock* where all important Kodyworld decisions seem best facilitated. But if all else fails they can have an outdoor Gala in any one of the dirt back yards in the Cuddle-sac. Robin does have several multi-colored picnic tables.

    Decor-
    Huge blowups of every ugly piece of their Iconic junk joolery.
    Poster sized photos of Sobbin sucking her teeth, Kody glaring and sneering, Meri's scrunched, oily tears, (she really isn't a pretty crier) Christine looking nervous and clueless and Janelle's *huh, what?* plastic smile.
    *Plyg Nation Rules* banners.
    Love should be Multiplied napkins. (only one to a table, they are to be shared.)
    Donation box in the shape of a mini-mansion for "Finite Resources" contributions.

    Food-
    Nachos and more nachos. Cookies galore !!
    And whatever else they can get for free.

    Oh.......And monogrammed tin hearts the group floor drop.

    5. Regarding the venue: I have NO DOUBT that Kody is frantically negotiating something on a Hawaiian beach - all expenses paid by TLC, of course. This will take place AFTER all of the wives get new wedding dresses from Kleinfeld's in NYC - paid for by TLC, of course. With four separate cakes (all with the same basic shape, but decorated to the demands (um, preferences) of each "wife." All paid for by . . . oh, you get the drift.

      Kody ain't gonna let ANY other TLC families get more than he's getting.

  7. Here are my ideas: Have Kody pick out only Robyn's dress, have Janelle dress to flatter her new figure, make sure the ceremony is in Meri's home utilizing the wet bar, Christine does the catering, and since everyone is together, they can work on the mission statement afterwards.

  9. I think they should all exchange rings that they designed for each other, so each wife has a total of four rings from Kody and the fellow sister wives. As they exchange them, a voiceover will let us know that they are soon to be available from My sisterwife's closet. They will all hug each other with forced smiles of cordiality, then feast upon peanut butter fritos, fish tacos and mock tapioca pudding.

    Good luck, Browns. The whole vow renewal type ceremony worked out really well for Jon and Kate.

  11. Well, I'd like to see them publicly commit to never using gov't. assistance or declare bankruptcy again, no matter what happens to their bank account(s) when TLC pulls the plug.

    This whole idea is nothing more than a TLC plot "twist" that they're buying into because it means another fancy party and pretty clothes. Robyn already got her uber-princess wedding on TLC's nickle; you'd better believe that the other wives are chomping at the bit, looking for their piece of the pie--beautiful gowns and all.

    The "enticement" for viewers will be a great deal of manufactured drama over a) what they should actually say to each other, b) wishing and wanting a romantic kiss, but being hampered by their own jealousies when there are PDAs, c) how much weight Janelle will lose before the ceremony, d) whether Robyn fit in her dress even though she's pregnant, and e) the other wives throwing a hissy fit when they find out that Meri picked out Kody's tux.

    2. What's it all aboutOctober 6, 2013 at 8:52 PM

      They all had wedding ceremonies and have made babies together. What is the point to a "commitment ceremony?" (They had one of these on Honey Boo Boo--I can guarantee this one will be a yawn next to that one!) I suppose they could renew their vows but even that seems silly unless they are reconciling or have been "married" 25 years. I think it's probably just some staged thing for the reality show. I suppose they really need the money so they have to go along with it. Too bad they don't explore some meaningful material about plural marriage...

  12. You all know that the entire next season will be about the commitment ceremony. There will be drama about who wants to be part of it and who doesn't. Kody will go dress shopping with Robyn again and Christine will find out and fling the hand-crafted iconic joolery back at Kody. Meri will somehow take her sweet time submitting some form of paperwork to someone which will cause some sort of delay so everyone else will be committed and she has to wait and be committed all on her own. I can hardly wait.

      Lots of drama over finding the venue.
      The caterer will drop out at the last minute and lots of panic over finding a new one.
      Deciding who will officiate.
      Plenty of drama over what words will be spoken during the ceremony and who did and didn't have input and whose words are going to have priority over someone else's.
      Who gets to stand next to Kody and who doesn't. (do you think they take photos with each wife getting the 'chosen' position?)
      Of course drama about which invited guests won't attend.

  13. During the marriage retreat they went on, Kody was heard to say "we aren't really a family unless you all stay together when I die" or words similar to that.

    Since that is Kody's criteria, I'd think he should insist upon each sister wife dedicating herself to the other sister wives. Something along the lines of I, Robyn, take thee Meri, as my sister wife for all eternity, staying together whether Kody is alive or dead, until Kody calls our names upon our deaths.

    Then Kody should commit himself to each of his wives by saying I, Kody, pledge to my wives that whether I like how you eat or whether you keep sweet enough, I will call your name after your death, pulling you through to my celestial planet. Once there we will all live happily, but only if you all stayed together after my death.

    This should all take place in Mexico somewhere (since J & C never got a Mexican vacation), where they have rented a home with 1 kitchen to share during this recommitment ceremony.

    While Kody is busy dabbing on the Monkey Butt so that we aren't treated to his butt sweat again, the wives should be dressing modestly because no one should have to worry about seeing degrading cleavage on their recommitment day.

    1. Funky Town, you bring up a topic in your opening statement that I hope the Brown's don't exploit - the death of Curtis Brown.

      At that, I wonder if the re-commitment ceremony will be broadcasted for us mere gentiles and apostates...or will it be deemed a sacred sharing of the vows - only for the Bishop and Heavenly Father. Will the Darger's band be available for the ceremonial dance, or did Papa Joe burn the TLC bridge?

    2. I think they'd have to show something of it, but whether it would be the actual recommitment part or what, I'm not sure.

  14. Meri: "I, Meri, take you, (insert name), to have and to scold, from this day fast forwarded for better but not worse, for richer, sans poorer, forget sickness only in health, to loathe and to cherish, till suspicious death do we part."

    I, Kody, take you Robyn, to be my lawfully wedded wife.

  16. Maybe they could have an "Oz The Great and Powerful" themed ceremony. Kody is of course the fraudulent magician OZ. Throughout the ceremony he can have his image projected in the sky and have his voice appear from everywhere (you know practice for when he is a god). Meri and Robyn can be the wicked sister witches (it is a toss up for who turns into the green witch, Meri is already turning colors but Robyn is so mean it physically shows).

    They can have their ceremony on the yellow brick road with voice over narration done solely by Kody. Meri on one side and Robyn on the other. Both will promise to keep sweet. Robyn will promise to populate the planet with babies and Meri will promise to go on as many trips as possible for every baby she meant to have (each trip should cost as much as it would have cost to raise said child and it doesn't matter if she meant to bleed the beast originally TLC money is the new standard). Kody will promise... "wait cool my head is in space it looks like I have more hair I should flip it more... yeah ... watch this guys... What were we doing?"

    You may have thought I forgot Janelle and Christine. I didn't, they were there standing around like extras, just there to meet the wife quota (like the people who fill the seats at award shows for the TV shots of the audience). They may have said something about being happy happy happy or proud of their man but nobody paid attention to them. You know the way they are usually treated in this relationship.

  18. I think the Browns should nix the commitment ceremony and instead join the Dargers in an episode of "Wives Swap" The Darger women will move to Vegas for two weeks. Week one they will be required to live by the Browns rules, the women will all be separate from each other, able to visit their favorite Sister Wife and talk smack about one the wife not there, and they can peek out their windows and see which wife Kody is sneaking extra time with on her off day. They each have to cook in their own home, in their own kitchen with their own family every night. On week two they will all move into the largest home, with the wet bar (extra eating space) and the entire family will share in all duties, truly equitable. Kody will stay clear of anything that looks like work or helping out, allowing these women to fully cook, clean and care for the children, while he bounds from house to house like a shaggy dog, spitting out stupid one-liners and he snatches the women away, one by one to the red-rock, making sure each woman knows he has brought other women there before.

    The Browns on the other hand will be moved into the Darger home during week one, they will be required to live and work together and God forbid...share a kitchen!!! *oh the drama of it!* During week two Joe will be required to buy each wife a McMansion, one with a wetbar and one with an extra large patio, that can be added later. The women will then separate all the children out and Joe will have to decide at who's home he left his favorite razor that he uses to shave his head. Other than looking for his razor Joe tries to stay as far away from home as possible, so as to avoid the constant tears, jeers and lonely looks on the faces of his swapped wives.

    When they all meet up the Darger women can tell the Brown women how undisciplined they found the children, their schedules and how much they missed not sharing things families should share on a daily basis, like meals. Then the Brown women can tell the Dargers how tense it was in one house, how Meri is incapable of sharing anything outside of a man and sharing a kitchen is the road to divorce.

    Then everybody can go back to their respective homes, Joe Darger will tell his lovely wives how much he missed them and they all agree to cut off all communications with the Browns.

    Kody flips his hair back and tells his wives how much he misses them, while fantasies of twins float in his head.

The ceremony will take a while...their one fan will need to run to the bank and get some money before it ends. She will never be seen again. The family members will grow old while watching and will slip away to live their own--hopefully monogomous--lives.

    2. fidelis swb, if you're really interested in seeing a Mormon temple ceremony, go on youtube and search for it as there are several clips from people who've snuck cameras in and filmed portions of it.

      There are several good book that go through what the Mormon church actually teaches, although most of their members don't know it. A great book is The Godmakers by Ed Decker and David Hunt. It's easy reading, and if you're a committed Christian as I am, you'll be appalled at what they actually teach! The only thing Christian about the Mormon church is that they have Jesus' name in their official name. Other than that, they're closer to Hindus than Christians as they believe in millions of gods--they're trying to become one which is why they practice polygamy.

      On a side note, does anyone know where the AUB holds their temples services as I believe they're all sealed to each other for time and eternity. Speaking of that, I think that's what Robyn alludes to when she says 'it's like we all should have been together......' at the beginning of the show.

    5. I have actually had an opportunity to tour a newly built temple and they are very beautiful but if they also have a sense of sadness about them. If you really study this religion it is sad and as stated above above must regular church members don't know most of the doctrine. I have spoke to many and they can not defend a lot of what they believe and can't answer answer simple questions about it. This is main stream Mormons

    Or they could hold the ceremony in a large party tent set up in the middle of the cuddle-sac and invite the Dargers, Williams and all those AUB members they were hoping would pass through Nevada and come visit them. Let's not forget to have them invite extended family too. Maybe Robyn's ex and Janelle's ex (Meri's brother) would pay a visit to enliven the festivities along with all of their relatives who have left the church and have found happy, fufilled lives outside of it. Lastly, I think Gina should play a prominent role with lots of camera shots of her looking on from the sidelines and Kody panting in her direction - salivating over making her wife number 5. Maybe they can get Meatloaf to perform at the ceremony.

  26. It is just another excuse for 5 adults to not be gainfully employed because they must spend all their time, energy and brain power discussing, ad nauseum, an event that is certain to be draining financially, emotionally and physically. Will they agree to use rock, paper, scissors to make all the decisions that must be made: venue, vows, clothing, food, jewelry, guest list, honeymoon, etc. The tears will flow as they agonize over every tiny detail of a ceremony that means nothing legally. The mission statement will have to be finished and recited.
    The money that should be used to save for their children`s futures will be blown on flowers and other frivilous nonsense. They have come a long way from poverty, food stamps and bankruptcies but have not learned one lesson from any of it. Their lifestyles are not sustainable without the TLC money and their debts exceed their assets. They want so much but do so little to deserve it. The past behavior usually predicts the future, meaning that Janelle is the only adult capable of supporting herself and some of the other grown-ups in the manner they believe they are entitled to live. I can see the last episode of SW being the ceremony. I don`t want them to fail but it seems so predictable.

  29. They rent a 4 bedroom house on the beach. The women have a contest to see who can make Kody a caramel cookie that he likes best. Each wife gets to listen to Kody as he goes from room to room and taste the cookies. He tells Meri her cookie is dry and walks out with it. He tells Janelle her cookie is okay and cost efficient but he needs to save his appetite for better cookies and leaves with it. He tells Christine her cookie is wonderful but she looks gross in that caramel covered apron and departs, three nibbled cookies now clutched in his hand. He goes to Robyn’s room. She did not even try to bake a cookie and sulks and cries and says somebody stole her sugar. Kody gives her all the other women’s cookies and has loud sex with her.

    Then they all meet together on the beach for the cameras to film a bogus re-commitment ceremony where the women wear dorky dresses and promotional pieces from their made-in-China-by-slave-labor line of Vegas bling. Kody wears very tight pants and has put some extra highlights and mousse in the strands of hair he has left. They all pledge their love and devotion to each other and God. Many children run around and the women pretend this is all wonderful-wonderful. Kody glares at the embarassed teenagers and squeezes pregnant Robyn tight against him. Meri cries. Christine cries. Robyn cries. Janelle stares off into space.

    Cut to family sitting on the couch. What they are saying is almost irrelevant. Kody preens. Meri’s tension is visible and she cries. Christine’s anxiety is visible and she cries. Robyn’s anger and angst are visible and she cries. Janelle holds her arms over her stomach, smiles vacantly, and stares off into space.

  30. They need to have a reception at Meri's house...convert the wet bar to a nacho bar. All the planning for the events will face major delays so Meri has time to make a proper scrapbook. Robyn can give the rest of the wives tips on how to restore purity so their first Kody night after the recommittment ceremony can be just like their wedding nights-but Robyn still gets a ten day post-honeymoon trip first. Meri gets another trip to Mexico, Christine has to save her grocery money for a trip to Lake Las Vegas, and Janelle gets the last of the layaway bedroom furniture.

  31. First, I would like to say that I believe Sobbin should not be a part of the recommencement ceremony! I think you need to be together at least 10 years. We all know that isn't going to happen...

    Their colors will be Brown and Orange (orange because of Meri's and Kody's skin color). Kody will lead the commencement and be the groom. You know he is their God! Robyn will go second because she is crying that she always last for everything! Wanted first, but Meri horns came out and would not allow that!
    The honeymoon is in Mexico because Meri has been wanting to go back for a couple of years now and she needs this. Robyn once again is second. When it's Janelle and Christine's turn Kody doesn't have time - you know with all his money making schemes and his hair (the hair is important)! Janelle and Christine get to go camping in the back yard.
    During Kody's overnight camp out with Christine he is constantly getting texts. Christine is not happy and storms in the house. Cliff hanger - who is texting all the time? Will Christine come back to the tent? Will Kody just invite Robyn in the tent? Will Meri bring some pastries? Will Christine ever finish the mission statement? Will Meri find clothes that fit her? Will Janelle start selling house? Will Janelle buy new clothes that flatter her? Will we see more of Kody's bald spot? Drum roll please.......... Did Mariah find herself a husband and is she the 1st wife?

  32. Maybe the re-commitment ceremony can just be an episode of "4 Weddings". Then the wives can vote on whose ceremony was the best and the winner gets the honeymoon with Kody. They really seemed to enjoy the caramel contest, so this would be a lot of fun for them. Of course, Robyn and Meri would cheat.

  35. Love all the scenarios above, especially the "commit them". So I have been thinking....not what if Kody dies first but if Janelle or Christine does. Could either one of them take on five or six more kids in their home? I remember Meri all teary eyed about her sister passing away and that is understandable but she said the sister wife moved into her sister's home. How many of you think Meri would give up her home to move into the home that had the children?

    I don't think she would, not even for Robyn's four kids. She might take Sol and the other three would go back to their father. I really think Janelle or Christine would step up to the plate for the other one and have the dozen kids to raise. Just my opinion.

  40. We all know this is going to be a recipe for disaster (and not just a cookie recipe). These women struggle with jealousy everyday and I think this will push them over the top. I'm sure that Kody will have to write personal vows for each of them expressing how he feels (and we all know how well it went with Christine when he captured his feelings towards her by designing jewelry). I can't imagine each wife coming up with something nice to say about each of her sisterwives. I also can't think of anything worse than having to pick dresses and knowing that they will be compared to each other. They are going to all have to agree on how the ceremony will be structured, what they will do, the venue, the decor, the food, etc. It's bad enough doing this with just one bride, can you imagine 4? I can't help but think of how the Dargers first wives had to decide who got Joe for the first night (didn't he marry 2 at the same time) and the Williams' angst over who gets birthday sex. Who would Kody spend that night with? Meri was jealous when Robyn was getting Kody all to herself on her wedding night, can you imagine how she will feel if she's not the one "chosen" on the re-commitment night? No matter how you cut that wedding cake, 3 wives go home alone.

    I predict that it will be an over-the-top TLC extravaganza, but at the end of the day not one of those women will be happy and the only one with a smile on his face will be Kody. As usual, he'll be prancing like a rooster in the hen house, spending his obligatory 5 minutes with each of the wives and then disappear into Robyn's bedroom for the rest of the night and the honeymoon.

    1. I think they should have one big sleep over. After the commitment ceremony, none of the wives gets the 'wedding night" experience. It would be too damaging for the other wives. If Kody was smart, he wouldn't set the ladies up for the disaster choosing one would cause.

  41. They will head to Kleinfeld's to pick out their dresses. Meri will find her out-of-budget dream dress and pressure Christine, Janelle, and Robyn to forfeit a portion of their budget to make her one and only plural commitment ceremony come true. A special 5 minute up close and personal couch moment will be spent with Meri crying that it was so unfair that she was the only wife married into a legal, monogamous marriage and she really deserves something special for the ceremony. At the fitting, Meri's dream dress won't close and we are left wondering if she will fit into it in time.

  48. The statement that you can not go into a Mormon temple is not accurate. You most certainly can go into a temple. The are frequented by tourists. There are missionary's their to greet you and answer questions, mostly women. There is but one level that is off limits to non Temple recommended people. That is where the baptisimal font is. No big deal really to keep that sacred. And anyone can go to the Tabernacle.

    1. Non-Mormons can go to the Visitors Center or waiting rooms if they do not have a "temple recommend" card. But even families (including parents) of those being sealed in the Temple cannot attend the ceremony without a temple recommend card - which are only issued to LDS members.

    2. Anonymous 11:35 a.m. - you must be talking about a new temple before it's been dedicated that's open for tourists for a few short weeks first. Once it's been dedicated tho, it's NEVER open to tourists nor even other mormons themselves who do not possess the required temple recommend to get in. (these are renewed every 2 years through their local bishop and stake president.) For weddings, there's a small waiting room where family and friends who do not have the recommend to go in any further to wait in while the endowment and sealing/wedding ceremony is taking place.

But she will hate the dress he picks for her and tell him so two weeks later in couch therapy. He will apologize that she feels that way. The planning will be full of drama. They won't be able to find a minister who will agree to do a Plyg ceremony so Kody will have to get ordained online and perform it himself. The caterer and band will drop out last minute because they don't agree with the plyg lifestyle... but really because Meri didn't get a final head count to the caterer in time, and Papa Joe has his whole family running a Marathon the next day. All the cakes will be Kody's favorite flavor and only the toppers will be unique to each wife. Meri's will be her and Kody's monogrammed initials. Janelle's will be a bride dragging the groom by his tux jacket. Christine's will be that dog paw symbol under a glittery rainbow.

      I haven't mentioned this before because it didn't seem relevant - but if anyone can get their hands on the Ellen Degeneres interview with the Brown Klowns you will see Robyn walking across the stage to hug Ellen. She is wearing cream-colored/off-white slacks. I saw what seemed to be long underpants (down to the top of her knees). The stage lighting kind of made them show up through her slacks. If anybody can find that show on the Internet and wants to see if they detect the undergarment too, then please do post here.

    3. Flora Jessop, I believe, said in her book that for FLDS "magic underwear" was optional until Warren Jeffs took over. Then the underwear became a requirement. Flora said folks escaping usually stunk because they were required to bathe wearing the underwear and not touch their bodies even with soap. What kind of religion requires folks to be so miserable to attain an afterlife? Well, the answer to that question is pretty obvious, isn't it?

      I love all the lovely scenarios sent in for a recommitment ceremony, especially commit the whole bunch to a mental health facility! But I have a serious question. The fundamentalist Mormons quote all kinds of scriptures giving the rationale for plural marriage for men but about the only requirements for women are that they submit to their husbands and be involved in plural marriage. I have yet to see much quoting done on any wife's responsibility to the sister wives. The Brown gals were committed to Kody but have no ceremonial commitment to one another. It is going to be interesting to see if the TLC ceremony is each wife recommitting to Kody or the whole family committing to their "special" way of life.

So, the idea of secret ceremonies/locations where "non-believers" are unwelcome is abhorent.

    Now, we really have no idea what Kody & Co. plan to do. Janelle did say she wanted it to be not just a party and wanted to get dressed up, etc. But, if any of it becomes "secret" because it is so "sacred" then "blecch!" to them.

  63. Anonymous 1:54, I can't imagine the FLDS and other fundamentalist Mormon groups not wearing the temple garments as about the only difference between the LDS and the fundamentalist off-shoots is the fact that one practices polygamy and other other doesn't.

    As far as the theology goes, I truly believe you have to understand what Mormon women believe to understand why they're so willing to practice polygamy. In their faith, they believe that the husband is the one who will resurrect them in the next life. If they want to be an exalted goddess, they have to 'practice the principle' as polygamy is referred to. The man becomes a member of their priesthood at the age of 8 by being inducted into the Aaronic priesthood, and then when he's 12, he is inducted into the Melchizedek priesthood. For those who know their Bibles, they will recognize that there's no such thing as the Aaronic priesthood in the Old Testament--it was the Levitical priesthood. And the only Being to be a part of the Melchizadek priesthood is Jesus now in Heaven.

    The Mormon man becomes what they refer to as a 'priesthood holder' meaning he has all sorts of power over his wife, and her eternal life is dependent on staying in his good graces. He can give his family blessings, prophecy and some other things I don't quite get by the power vested in him as a priesthood holder.

    Mormonism is a works religion where a person earns their way to godhood, and sadly for the wife, she can only progress as far as her husband is worthy of. This has motivated Mormon women to be sealed to prominent men they aren't married to so they can be on his planet in the afterlife. Brigham Young was sealed to women he never saw after the ceremony. I suspect the woman was motivated by wanting to secure as high a position in the afterlife as possible.

    As far as the show not covering their beliefs, I suspect that most of them don't know as much about what the church actually teaches as I do, and I've never been a Mormon. The focus of most Mormon church services is rehashing how their ancestors crossed the plains to get to Utah. I've attended the Mormon church as a young teenager, and that was all I ever heard about. The Mormons are very proud of their heritage, and it's a huge part of what they focus on. They even have the kids get up and speak beginning at about age 7, and most of it is telling about your ancestors crossing the plains. This is why the Browns traveled to Nauvoo Illinois a couple of years ago to see where their ancestors had lived.

    1. I heard the stories from my grandmother but it was from the other point of view. I heard stories of crossing the plains in a covered wagon in the cold. There was starvation and death. My grandmother's grandmother (my great great....) had a baby who was killed when he was kicked by a horse in the stomach. The women and children were left alone at camps while the men went hunting for food and they recount Indians coming to the camp. The Indians were looking for food as well. Her family eventually denounced Brigham Young and went back to Council Bluffs and Crescent, Iowa. They lived out their lives as strong Joseph Smith post mortem followers. They sounded like unhappy people except maybe her grandfather who was a botanist. She would always tell me the story of how her grandfather developed Peonies and he named one after his first wife instead of her grandmother who was really hurt by this. I always assumed his first wife died but maybe he had more than one? My grandmother's parents left the church so she was not raised LDS or FLDS.

    4. That is good to know!! Thanks! I did some web research and his first wife really did die. They definitely were not living the principal. His parents ended up going to Utah following Brigham Young but he stayed and helped found the town of Crescent. He figured out how to grow fruit trees and many other types of agriculture in the settlements.

  66. Here is the thing about the recommitment ceremony. This is clearly a producer/show driven story. Why are they recommitting? They seemed to dislike the ‘work’ of the therapy session in Sedona, were resistant to advice from that “crazy lady” therapist…none of them really seemed to think it was worthwhile (other than the nice trip). When asked if the women are indeed friends, they all paused. So, why are they recommitting to other women that they do not like? It’s not like anyone had an epiphany and has actually accomplished having a successful and rewarding sister-wife relationship. They have the same issues that they are working on and will work on into eternity on their own planet. This is just an excuse for a big fancy party that TLC pays for, they get to have make-overs and there will some fabricated drama around something silly, like Kody’s car breaks down on the way to the ceremony. I can’t imagine that any amount of therapy or pretty dresses is going to really make these women like each other. Ever. And if you don’t like people, you do not have a big ceremony to pretend otherwise.

    2. "They have the same issues that they are working on and will work on into eternity on their own planet."

      Whoa. And that's the highest level of "heaven"? Sobering thought.

    3. I'm sure they like each other more than they know. We just see a part of their lives. I can't wait!

    4. I think the idea of a recommitment ceremony is so contrived and phony. In real life, who does this? I know many couples who have been married over 25 years (myself included) and no one has had a "recommitment ceremony". There may have been some anniversary parties but they are usually reserved for milestone years such as the 50th wedding anniversary. Ridiculous drama!

  69. I wonder if any of their polygamous friends and family from Utah will join the party. Seems like they should be there but most likely they will not. The Brown family is living the principle of an unseen church unless you count Kody's crappy living room Sunday sessions as 'church.' The recommitment Episode will be just the immediate family and the usual characters/chuckleheads they know who are willing to go on national tv with them: Janelle's trainer, the jewelry lady, the real estate lady...

    1. Does that mean that Kody will have to do double-duty as the officiant and the groom?

    2. No doubt there will be some relatives there, also AUB members who want a few seconds of "fame," and their LIV "family"--many of whom also belong to the first two categories I just mentioned.

  70. Since Netflix added Season 3 of Sister Wives, I decided to travel back in Brown time for an episode of two. And something caught my eye in Season 3 Episode 2, when the family sits down to discuss sending their kids to a local church youth group. (The one that Christine likens to "feeding them to the sharks"). The five-some is sitting down in one of the rental homes... Krody is yammering away about how the kids will not be going there... and then Janelle speaks out for a moment about the subject being closed... and RIGHT THEN you can catch a glimpse of the book "Escape" by Carolyn Jessop on the bookshelf behind Janelle. The book is black with the word 'escape' in bold orange letters down the side, and you can only see it for a brief second. I recognized it because it looks just the same sitting on my bookshelf.

    Can anyone tell me whose rental house they are sitting in? I think I recognize the desk as being Christine's... but I'm not sure. And why would any of them be so threatened and angry at the panel discussion a couple years later, when they have read such stories of women escaping the FLDS?

    2. Wow, quite interesting! I also read that book. It was not a book for the fainthearted. I suspect whoever bought it had their motives. Did they know Carolyn? Did they know the family? Were they thinking of following in her footsteps? This is quite provocative.

      Delete
    3. I'm going to look for that right now!

      Delete
    4. That book is all about the horrors of the FLDS and as we know, Kody is not like Warren Jeffs, so it has nothing to do with them or their "lifestyle choice."

    5. Yeah that was the episode where Robyn got upset at the teenagers for not bowing down to her newly impregnated status.

      Delete
  71. Oooohhh, so many possibilities! And cliff hangers galore! Where will they find four wedding gowns that will fit over long sleeve T shirts? Will they be constructed of matching floral fabric? Will Kody be able to sustain his attention span long enough to exchange vows with all four wives?

    Things we know for sure: No matter what the gowns look like, they will certainly be paired with clunky brown fugly shoes. There will be smarmy acoustic music edited over every scene involving the ceremony. The wedding night will be spent with Robyn, while Meri and Mariah cry, Christine does the dishes, and Janelle works out with Sean the Trainer. In the couch interview afterwards, they will sum up the experience. Kody will say it was "iconic", Meri will say it as "kuuuullll!", Janelle will say it was "awesome", and Christine will say "I didn't know that men could be such bastards!"

    2. will kody want to rush through it like he did on the options for the houses? I never did understand why kody wanted to rush through something as important as picking out options for something he only had to live with one day out of five. Meri really milked that for all it was worth. Will Meri insist on having the most expensive dress? Would robyn wear her original dress?

  73. Caramel Brownie, above, asked if polygamists have re commitment ceremonies. Absolutely not. They consider their temple "sealing" the ultimate commitment. The Brown circus and TLC is just scratching around for something different to put on TV.

  74. What would be the difference between their "sealing" ceremony and a "commitment" ceremony????

    What are some famous movie wedding themes they could draw from for their ceremony?

    Let's see.... Brides of Frankenstein is all that comes to mind now. Anybody else got some?

  77. Wow, the Williams family has sure one-upped the browns on the Facebook front! They answer questions, they post pictures of everyday stuff, refreshing!

    When I first started watching "Sister Wives" I was really interested in how the family dynamic worked. Scheduling, feeding, etc. I really wanted to see how the sister wife relationship worked, and after the first season they just kind of......stopped showing that part. Ho hum.

    Still fun to watch, though!
