I now find Meri impossible to like. Her constant crying is ridiculous. I've said it once and I'll say it again...she doesn't want a child or she would know she wanted one. She plays games. She also has no need to have five bedrooms in her home, why do that to the family if the houses could be more affordable? These nutbags seem to be building dream houses, and I can't figure out where they get the money. Does TLC really pay them that well? I can't imagine they will make much from their website selling that jewelry. I can't imagine too many people being interested enough to buy the stuff.
They aren't really a family, as has already been stated by many here. In the very beginning of the show, they seemed to be totally different people. It makes me wonder how much having cameras come in really does alter people's behaviors.
I do feel some sympathy for the two middle wives. They are not happy women. It hurts to think of them feeling stuck in a situation they'd be better out of, but perhaps feel the need to stay in. I hope eventually they are able to carve out happy lives for themselves one way or the other. It won't happen if they keep having Grody's kids, though. He really only seems interested physically in Robin but seems to have a deep attachment to Meri. And that one thinks she is the queen.
What a mess! Better them than me.
