    S02.E09: It's Getting Steamy Up in Here!

    Watching Dimitri saunter back to Vanessa's room for the night -bluurrrgh. Dimitri is so full of himself. I can't imagine Ashley is really that OK with it, although she'll probably put on a front. Paige and Bernie--she is definitely not OK, and Bernie really doesn't care, although he tries to say he does. She'll probably put up with it because she doesn't want to lose him, imo. If and when he does get to be "intimate" with Brandi, he'll likely say, "But Paige, I was thinking of you the whole time!"

    Kailyn: Kail Smash!

    Wait, Kail wants kudos and screen time for taking her kids on spring break and “building “ a house? First of all, you know there’s no sweat equity happening here. Second of all, big deal that you’re doing something with your own kids when they’re on break. What’s so great or interesting? She’s got balls telling her employer to kiss her ass when it is that same employer that has enabled all of the things of which she is so proud.

    Kody Brown: Part-Time Father, Full-Time Asshat

    They really can’t win with the way their version of plural marriage is set up, imo.

    Kody Brown: Part-Time Father, Full-Time Asshat

    I think you’re right about Robyn being OK with Christine as long as Christine knows her place in the family. Christine knows that to get into, and stay, in Kody’s good graces she must at least appear to be all about the family and her sister wives. If she sings Robyn’s praises for helping with her and Kody’s relationship, Kody will see it as an indication of Christine’s devotion to the family/him.

    S09.E10: This Can Go One of Two Ways

    I am not made of stone when it comes to addict's families, particularly parents/mothers wanting to keep a connection with their addict child and any children of said addict. I get it. Hope springs eternal in a parent's heart. In my own situation with my grandchild, I do not blame his other grandmother for having hope and wanting her son to get his shit together (opioids) and be a good father. As of now, my daughter (and I) trust her to supervise any visits. I wish my grandson were included more in family gatherings. However, no one should put my grandson's safety at risk in order to have the illusion of one big, happy family or to use my grandchild as motivation for the addict to get sober. And I do sincerely hope that he gets sober--for his sake, his family's sake, and for my grandson's sake. However, if it has been determined through past experience that Adam should only be around Aubree if supervised by an objective authority. so be it. If the Linds had not let Aubree's safety be at risk in the past, the judge likely would have allowed them to supervise Adam's visits with Aubree.

    You have good points in your post, but I kind of have to take issue (with the wording at least) re: the bolded. I don't think Chelsea and Cole are solely responsible for this "weird dynamic" nor are they the ones who set it up intentionally. It evolved into that because of the actions of Adam and the Linds. This situation did not happen in a vacuum. The LInds need to tell Adam not to be there if Aubree is there and tell him to leave if he does so up. They can do those things without Aubree hearing it. If Aubree is negatively affected by this--it's no one's fault but Adam's for showing up where is is prohibited. If the Linds are "spanked" for letting the situation happen, so be it. Control your son. If Adam really wants to see Aubree-- show the fuck up to the visitation center, work your program and get sober, and keep out of trouble with the law. And Aubree may not fully understand it now, and that's OK--she's a kid, and some decisions are made by grownups (the judge and Chelsea) for the safety and protection of children. I do agree that Aubree should be kept out of these types of conversations regarding Adam--Chelsea just needs to privately explain the situation as best she can to her. And Cole needs to back off a bit (even though it is nice that he's a good stepfather). I am very uncomfortable with the way she is included in some things and these situations playing out on camera. I am seeing this situation through a filter because of a situation occurring in my life with my grandson--so I guess it just hits home for me.

    @Rebecca, thanks for posting the links about Adam. I remembered that he had gotten in trouble for DUIs, but couldn't remember exactly when. The Linds may not be able to control Adam, and they may falsely think he is sober when he is not. Or, he could show up sober, and they think it is OK for him to take Aubree out for a short trip for ice cream or to the park. Meanwhile, he's actually going out to score (this is hypothetical, mind you) and driving under the influence on his way back. If Adam were likely to get violent or belligerent in front of Aubree, would the Linds call the police on their son? I think not. YMMV

    S10:08 Aspyn's Royal Wedding

    Yeah in these close knit Polyg communities, the family tree is more like a wreath. Janelle, who was Meri's sister-in-law and Kody's step-sister (her mom married Winn, Kody's dad), divorced her husband (Meri's brother) and married Kody. I also heard that somehow Christine and Kody are second cousins. So I guess if Kody were to marry Hannah (not that it would happen in reality, I agree)--it probably wouldn't seem so strange to them or their community.

    Wouldn’t the purpose of another wife be to bear more children? Or not necessarily? I’d watch if Kody took another wife— even more so if it were Hannah, lol. He’d be marrying his daughter’s MIL, who would also be another one of her “ moms “ and he’d be his SIL’s stepdad, too. I guess it would be following tradition where Janelle’s mother married Kody’s father.

    I thought the same thing—that it (the outfit) was somehow directed at the ex. Could have been that she wanted to look sexy to show him what he’s missing? Or— Maybe he was controlling in the marriage about what she should or should not wear? Now she can basically say, “I’ll wear what I please!”

    He called Aubree that in her presence? What a prince. I have to agree with others here about Aubree's safety. If there is a court order, then the grandparents should obey it. End of story. A drug addict (or any substance abuser) is not always "lovable." They can be unpredictable and sometimes dangerous. Not everyone is a "happy drunk" or a "happy druggie." They can be verbally abusive and sometimes physically abusive under the influence. Driving under the influence is no joke either--who knows if Adam would decide just to take Aubree for a little ride when everyone else is distracted?

    Ok, I didn’t hear —Or maybe pay attention to Christine. I had always though Kody (and the othe polygamists at the rallies) just wanted it decriminalized. You are right, though—I have always thought it would be a logistical nightmare for our legal system if polygamy were to be legalized. Can you imagine all of the different combinations of people who could be married? Between non-closely related consenting adults—polygamy should not be a crime. If there is fraud, abuse, coercion, incest—prosecute that. Christine should just print out a spiritual certificate of marriage if she is into a piece of paper. I thought they didn’t really care about the civil earthly marriage so much, anyway. Maybe she’s angling for Kody to divorce Robyn and give her a turn to be the legal wife, lol.

    The silhouette and shiny fabric were all wrong for Janelle, along with the shoes (and Meri's shoes,too--just wrong). I thought Janelle looked better at Maddie's wedding, with a flowy dress--although that was a "Bohemian" themed wedding--maybe it wouldn't have been right for this wedding. And, even though I don't think the "moms" needed to be matchy-matchy--it looked off to me that two wore full-length and the other two didn't. YMMV

    I didn't hear it, but I was only half-watching. I think they (Kody and the wives) just want it decriminalized--not legal as in you can legally marry one wife, but if you choose to cohabit and call more than one woman a wife, you are not a felon? I agree with that btw, even if I don't think polygamy is a great life choice.

    The McGees

    Aren’t the McGees, at least Paige, grandparents? Have they ever talked about that? Any woman that becomes a sister wife in that household should definitely keep an eye on Paige. I could picture her on a future episode of “Snapped.”
