    S04.E12: Change of Heart

    Besides this: Andrei wants a Moldovan wedding for his family, who didn't/couldn't attend the U.S. wedding. In fairness, I've known couples who do this - but usually they can afford it and usually they aren't broadcasting their lives on a national TV show.

    When she was staring at the photo and finally admitted that she could "see Mike (in the baby)" it really pissed me off. I thought for sure she was going to try to make the argument that the baby wasn't his because she didn't look like him.

    Megan & Michael & Sarah: Three's Company

    I always wonder about the parents of an adult who cheats. Are they wired to forgive their child or find a way to make it the spouse's fault? Do they get angry at their cheating kid? Do they think it's wrong? I get that they should stay out of their adult kids' relationships and that it depends on the individuals involved, but I have known of a couple of parents who look the other way when their kids cheat - mostly, it seems, because they love their kid and want to look past bad behavior to maintain the relationship. I'm so curious about Michael's family. Do they think he's behaved badly? Do they care? I'm sure they love him but are they angry at the mess he's made of their lives and of their nieces'/granddaughters' lives?

    I don't know if Brittany necessarily misses prison but I do think that she misses having friends who understand her experience and who are around her all the time. I think she has been involved in the justice system for so long that she doesn't really have great social skills our many touchpoints in the outside world. I think she must be terribly lonely. Even if Marcellino was a perfect husband and they had the perfect relationship, Brittany still needs friends and hobbies and interests.

    That's a low bar. I think I recall that Larissa's cat didn't get along with Coltee and Debbie's cats (shocker) so hopefully it found a friendlier home too.

    There's already a waiting list.

    And then hit McDonald's for the dollar menu? Not necessarily. I'm not religious at all and I have a goddaughter. Her parents are fairly observant in their faith. Their daughter has two sets of godparents and the other set is more religously oriented. We joke that I'm the makeup and shopping godmother but they really chose me as someone that would always support and love their daughter throughout her life, without necessarily any religious involvement. We discussed it when they asked me. I am also her guardian should something happen to her parents but that was a separate discussion. I think it's pretty common for guardians to not actually be godparents. In short, all the titles mean different things to different people. I think Brittany just wanted to recognize Sascha as someone special and important in her life and by extension, in her daughter's life. Sascha can't have much influence or do much harm behind bars so I don't see what the harm is. She doesn't have to be Zoila's only godparent or her legal guardian should something happen to Brittany and/or Marcellino.

    What is the baby's name? I couldn't understand what the hell Michael was saying in response to Meghan's question.
  10. Good for him! I stayed there last year while we were visiting my in-laws. It's nice and it looked like a lovely pool (we were there in winter so it wasn't open).

    OMG - WHERE?!?!?!?!?!? It wouldn't bother me in the slightest -it just makes good financial sense to buy a house and not be paying rent... I wouldn't expect him to be living in it unfurnished. It helps that Greg has spectacular taste and that is one gorgeous house. And he knows what chair rail is! That man is a keeper. I was older when I got married so my husband and I both owned our homes. For a whole variety of reasons, we sold mine and live in his. We did a substantial renovation which made it feel more "ours" but that wasn't the main reason we did it - it had some functional issues that the renovation solved. And my husband is proudly "the cheapest guy he knows" so he realized the furniture needed an upgrade. There are a lot of ways for a couple to make a home "theirs" even if one of them owned it and lived in it previously. I love me some Sandy but goldies shed like mad. Greg can definitely make brushing her a full time job!

    I think her crate is the right size - it should be tall enough that she can stand up straight and deep and wide enough that she can turn around. Any larger and it's ineffective for housebreaking. If she's housebroken, it doesn't necessarily hurt to have it larger but a lot of dogs like the enclosed space - to simulate a cave... She could know Sandy is nervous around men even without having had a boyfriend. If she got Sandy from a rescue, they may have told her that and they may actually have adopted Sandy to a single family because of that. Or it could be something that Deona could have observed taking the dog to the vet, the dog park, on walks, whatever. Before I married, I didn't date anyone for a long time. My dog was the opposite of Sandy - she LOVED men. I'd have friends over or whatever and she was a terrible flirt. There could be a room full of women and one man and my dog would pick him out and look at him adoringly until he paid attention to her.

    Do the couples pay their own living expenses beyond rent? I'd love to see the discussions about who's paying for groceries and whether or not the can afford organic produce or have to shop at Costco. Just thinking about all the stuff you need to buy to start up a household -cleaning supplies, toiletries, etc. - that's a chunk of change too unless they drag all that sort of stuff over from their existing homes. I guess maybe the producers feel those make for boring conversations but figuring out how to prioritize where you are spending your money is one of the foundational challenges of marriage. Find a way to make it palatable tv, producers!

    I never said they were. I only took issue with your statement that men cannot be raped by women. I think that is incorrect. I didn't "start" saying that - it's not new. It's uncommon but it happens and it's totally irrelevant to the issue of rape, which is about consent and not about the body's biological response. I offered it up as a counterpoint to your statement that any man with a full erection wants to have sex. I also thought that was incorrect. From a reliable male source -"I wake up many times at 3 a.m. with a raging boner and I don't want to have sex. i just want to go back to sleep."
