They discuss the FLDS dresses some of the Brown girls wore, and Janelle says her daughters were raised to have opinions and choices, and the dresses stripped them of that. Robyn echoes that their personalities and choices were gone. Which is exactly what they said in the ep, so no “secrets” here either.
Hall brings up the houses. Christine says they’re “not 100 percent” in the houses. Hall asks what Plan B is. There is none, of course. Robyn says stay where they’re at and look for something else. Hall points out it costs a lot to raise kids, plus pay 4 mortgages, plus pay for college. Kody says they work together, while Robyn says they’re determined. Neither of those are an answer, as you’ll have noticed. Who else is not surprised they have no Plan B? Me neither.
Now it’s on to Wet Bar Gate. Hall asks Meri if she drinks and if not why the obsession with the wet bar. Robyn and Meri say she wanted the counterspace the wet bar would provide, for “pastries”. Hall says it became an obsession. Kody says Meri would have given up the master bedroom for the wet bar. Hall says her sister wives need necessities but Meri’s wet bar is a luxury. Meri says they split their finances and each has their own budget. Which is, of course, beside the point.
Hall asks if that’s fair. Janelle says any division could potentially be unfair. She says she worries she won’t get what she needs, but always does get what she needs. Meri says she wouldn’t have gotten a wet bar if that deprived someone else. Kody says they work together for things like college and cars. So apparently the wives get an allowance, but big ticket items are paid for out of the communal pool. Hall asks if they have access to one account. After some evasion, Kody says they have a group account and each wife has a personal account. An allowance is decided as a family, and Janelle cuts the checks. Hall asks when their last fight over money was and Kody says about a month ago, with Christine. Who else thinks that was regarding her extra house money?
Hall brings up the fertility issue, and points out that Meri’s deadline to give Kody an answer on IVF is a couple of weeks. Kody says she told him her answer 2 1/2 years ago when she said she was done. Now’s the perfect time for Meri to just say, yes that’s right. But she doesn’t. So we’ll see more of this tedious issue next season, I guess.
Hall asks Meri how much this has to do with Kody saying he’s having more children regardless, and does Meri lose more of him if she doesn’t have a child in the home. Kody says that’s not how he feels, they have a bond for eternity and he will love her until the end of time. Hall points out that he would obviously be spending more time with a new baby. Kody says he thinks Meri’s reassured that wouldn’t take him away from her. Meri says they have a relationship the other 3 wives don’t have, implying it’s because she only has 1 child. At this point, I wonder if she ever tried for a second child.
