Answers & Questions

Happy December!!

First off Christie is doing better after things got rough for a little bit. Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!

My little Cathy is doing great and she's a very, very happy little girl!!! She's also developed red hair like her sister Laura!

I haven't posted much this year so I thought I would open this up to your questions and I promise you'll get an answer! Feel free to ask anything you want and that includes personal stuff. The only topic off limits are some questions about my children.

In the meantime I hope you all have a bee-yoo-tee-full Christmas!

Hugs!

  1. Hi, Megan!

    I have a few questions for you:

    1. Do you want your daughters to be poly? If so, how old do you want them to be before you let them marry?

    2. Are you going to have more babies?

    3. You used to be reluctant or fearful about pregnancies. Has that changed? Are you more welcoming of becoming pregnant now?

    4. Someone asked if you would be willing to be a surrogate mother and I'm curious, too.

    5. Macy left your family. Will she be replaced with someone else?

    6. Can you post one or more of your favorite recipes?

    Thank you!

  3. Dear Megan,
    Since you opened up for questions, here’s mine.

    I don’t like polygyny and I don’t believe the justifications that people provide for it. Whatever spiritual language people use to explain it, it basically thrives on the self-abnegating tendencies of women, and promotes the profligate tendencies of men. That viewpoint notwithstanding, I’ve been reading your blog for a long time, and feel only goodwill towards you as an individual who is making an effort.

    The philosophy and practice that you have advocated, for your family, which is also held by most if not all polygynous households, establishes the man as the head of the household. The definition of the father and husband as head of household ALWAYS implies that he is the protector and provider. As such, it is his economic and moral responsibility to support his family.

    Regardless of what is advocated, the fact is, very few polygynous men can actually earn enough to support all the children they are creating. The wives then work to help bring in money.

    1st question: How do you logically explain the phenomenon of wives subordinating themselves to the concept of the male head of household, and then working outside the home to help “provide”?

    2nd question: Specifically, how do you justify, logically, economically, and morally, creating 6 children, and then spending your time in a resort to earn money, and spending money to hire a helper at home?

    Thanks,
    Helene
