    Jill & Derick Dullard: Counting On (Donations)

    I think Jill would be devastated by what Derrick wrote. But if I were married to Derrick (heaven forbid!) I wouldn't be. That's because I agree with him in a way. I don't believe in the idea of "soulmates" and I think everyone settles to an extent. I'm writing this as a happily married woman. I dated my husband for five years, and we've been married for ten. I am content in my marriage and don't want to be with anyone else. But I think it would be a lie to say that I couldn't be equally happy with another man. If he didn't attend the same college as I did and we never met, I believe I would have found someone else and most likely been married happily. Overall my husband is a great guy, but he has some flaws that I "settled for" and ditto for me. Call it unromantic (it is) but it is true and I don't think either of us has a problem being realistic about it. The reason I don't believe in the idea of "the one" is that I have seen too many people in my family be widowed and find happiness in a second marriage. My parents were married for 25 years. They had a great marriage. My mom died and my dad remarried. He has another great marriage. I suppose what I'm saying is that I find Derrick to be realistic and since I'm a grown woman I don't need my husband to pretend that I'm the moon and the stars. I do feel bad for Jill because I think she would like that, but I know that I'm loved and appreciated. I don't need any cliched statements about romance to make me feel valued.
  2. Jessa seems to be somewhat of a mean girl. I would be livid if I was Lauren. Jessa only thinks about herself.

    Josiah and Lauren: He Has To Marry Somebody

    I agree with you that "she miscarried." However, I have been hearing couples saying more and more frequently that "we are pregnant." I've heard colleagues, family members, friends, and Facebook acquaintances use it. I've been surprised by how common it is. It's NOT a fundie thing. I live in NJ and the vast majority of people I know are not religious whatsoever. So if that is acceptable, I think it is fair game to say "we miscarried." Personally- my husband and I never said "we." He was never pregnant.

    The Duggalos: Jinger and the Holy Goalie

    I don't disagree with everything you said. I do think a lot of people post things like this to convince themselves that they are super happy because that is what society expects. However, she might honestly believe that. I don't want to sound corny, but motherhood is the best thing that has ever happened to me, period. I had a full life prior to the birth of my son, but I have become a better person and enjoyed life so much more since his birth. Yeah, parenthood is hard, but I expected that going in. No one should have children and not expect (many) difficulties. I have to believe that there are other women out there like me who are being true to how they feel. Now would Jinger feel this way if she had the opportunity to pursue an education or career prior to being a mother? That's another story. But I had all these opportunities given to the modern American woman and even though motherhood isn't perfect, it's the closet thing to perfection that I have found. I'm willing to admit I may be a rare breed, but we do exist.

    I agree. They have been popular forever, too. When I got married back in 2009, I had trouble finding dresses that weren't strapless. I ended up buying a strapless dress and having cap sleeves added on. You also have to have the right shape to pull it off. If you are small on top, it makes you look like a pancake. If you are large, then you have the Ashley effect where the cups dig into your skin. Oh such a good idea. Generally I will only donate if I know the person or if the person is a friend of a friend. I wondered this too! Someone said that apparently she only has her kids for 2 weekends a month. If so, that would explain it. There aren't really any daycares or afterschool programs that would fit a bartender's schedule. I also think she must be getting some $$ from her parents or something. I don't see how she can afford everything otherwise.

    But she has a GoFundMe for her medical bills! Ashley in a skanky dress? Color me shocked!

    Joy and Austin: This One Time At Family Camp

    So how much weight did she lose prior to starting this program? It sounds like she had done most of the work herself.
  8. I don't know what gym Larissa goes to, but I see plenty of colorful and feminine athletic clothing at the gym and sold in stores. Of course, there are also women like me to don't mind going in black yoga pants and a t-shirt. But I'd like to assure Larissa that I know I have other options. I just don't like spending money on workout clothes and neither my husband nor I care if I look cute while working out.
  9. Apparently Larissa posted that she was mistaken when she said Colt took her off of his insurance. These two need to stop posting everything online. It's so absurd.

    Just saw the pic of Izzy's new bed. Was he in a crib until recently? Just curious because he seems big (in size and age) to have been in a crib. Then again, my son was done with his crib early (18 months) so maybe he's the strange one.

    Good point. I'm a Millennial, and I'll be the first to admit that some people my age and younger are overly sensitive and have trouble doing basic things that other generations handled with ease. I do believe a part of that has to do with the fact that we were coddled by our parents. I was. But once I moved out I figured out stuff because I realized that I was an adult and had to get my act together. That being said, what Eric was saying was ridiculous. Snowflake millennials are the ones who are 30 and can't handle paying a bill from their parents' basement but still have their daily latte. Tasha, (who is part of Generation Z), is actually more mature and acting more like an adult than many of my Millennial peers (I'm 33). Eric can take a hike.

    I think that Ashley must be getting money from her parents or something. I don't know of any single bartender mothers who can afford kids, a nice home, a car, multiple trips to Jamaica, losing money on weddings, etc. She is not making that that much in central PA. Being that she has such serious health issues, that is yet another reason why importing a 20 year old husband was a bad idea. She needs stability in her life. Find a decent local guy who maybe isn't too good looking but can be there for you and doesn't need sex 3 times a day. Then again, I'd stay away from her if she was a decent guy because she acts so trashy.
  13. It's terrible when parents and kids don't get along. But Tasha would be so much better off to never talk to Eric again.
  14. Yes. Their lack of self-awareness is stunning and scary.
  15. I couln't sit through this. Yet another reason I would never do reality tv.
