Did any of you see Brokeback Mountain? In this one scene, husband and wife are in bed and wife insists on husband using protection. Husband says, "Don't you want to have my baby?" (they have one already) and wife says, "I'll have them if you support them." OUCH. Marriage was over after that. lol
After watching the latest episode, I've decided that Meri is all about drawing attention to herself and I don't like her as much as I once did.
She's had YEARS to consider and accept the fact that she can no longer carry a baby. I can only imagine how sad and difficult that must be for any woman! However, due to modern medicine, she's clearly being given another chance and she still needs time to think about it??? Huh? A decision, either way, is all Kody is looking for.
I think she's realized that once she makes the decision the focus will be off of her years long longing for another child....and the attention she receives from it from everybody....mostly her husband.
Why is it now that the Browns are doing the show that she has this ENORMOUS DESIRE to have a baby????
GET A JOB, Meri and then you won't be sitting around in a house with 5 bedrooms worrying about whether or not to have a baby OR did TLC ask you to go with THAT story line???
I have not watched this show much. I have kept track from interviews and the media and dropped in on a few episodes while channel surfing. And I am sick of all of this! :lol
If she even remotely wanted another child then we would know about it...everything would be much easier if she would just give in and have another kid: Kody and her daughter would be thrilled, TLC would get another storyline, and all the pressure and stress from the decision making would be gone...not to mention that she's in an environment that supports a lot of kids and a religion that sort of mandates it; the fact that she is still resisting pretty much spells out that deep down she does NOT want another baby.
Sidenote--I know it has been difficult for Meri to get pregnant but if she wanted another child she would try...and she also has a readybake oven standing by that has publically agreed to carry/grow her egg and kody's sperm so she has that option as well.
Just to shed a little opposing opinion, I can kind of get where Meri is coming from on the pregnancy issue. Even though Robin agreed to be her surrogate, that still doesn't guarantee success - just ask Jenn Klein of the Little Couple. My daughter has dealt for many years with the inability to carry a baby. After the pain of 10 miscarriages, she refuses to put herself through the emotional pain again. At this point, Meri must be conflicted: yes, she's getting older but here is her last chance to have another child - yet, there's not a 100% promise of success and does she want to put herself through the possible pain? Knowing how hard it's been for my daughter, I'm cutting her some slack in this instance.
I have a different thought on Meri.
When we met the Browns in Utah, Meri was gainfully employed with a company that she absolutely loved. Meri stated in many interviews how much she loved her job. I cannot tell you how long she had been with that company but I do remember it was a number of years. After SW started, Meri's company called her in and said while they love her and everything she has done while at the company, they just did not want any publicity as a result of her now being on SW. Meri was devastated. When speaking about it on OPRAH a few years ago ... Meri was in tears as she retold to Oprah that doing SW cost her her job.
Meri stated that she was going to look for a new job BUT then they all decide to FLEE to Vegas from Utah.
So here they all are now attempting to get settled in Vegas and Meri has been out of work and around all the SW's and I am guessing that because she is not running off to a job that she loves and is spending tons of more time with all the kiddos and Robyn's new baby .... it was making Meri have thoughts about trying to have a baby.
nana, I am sorry to hear of your DD's struggle with having a baby. I love Jenn Arnold and have watched all their seasons! Those tests she went through in an attempt to have a baby......God bless her and your DD.
What a nightmare this could be -
- unMeri agrees to go with the in vitro
- Multiple fertilized eggs from unMeri and Grody are implanted into SobynRobyn
- All of the eggs implant, some divide
- SobynRobyn gives birth to sextupligs!!!!
The difference is, we ALREADY are fed up with this family . . . not like Khate, whom we grew to dislike over the course of her 15 minutes of fame.
(I've got to get a real life.)
