Money is money. I think any son- or daughter-in-law who has access to cash and the gifts it can buy will please Jill just fine.

That Plath boy has a nice body but facially...not my idea of hot. If you look at the pictures without super Photoshop and touch-up, he definitely doesn't look as good. Unpopular opinion but I think face-wise a couple of the Duggar boys and a couple of the Bates boys have him beat. But sense he apparently has a mind and not hateful beliefs, he trumps them in every other way.

I'm much more concerned that you tried Plexus.

I assumed she was saying that those two kids were sick, but SHE wasn't because of Plexus - and I was astonished that she hoarded the medicinal Plexus for only herself.

Jill's promotion begins by saying God protects her from illness (coronavirus). Then she slides right into suggesting Plexus is responsible by keeping her immune system strong. Is it God or Plexus, Jill? Get your claims straight. Also, there's no reason for the kids to be in the ad because we know she doesn't waste that expensive stuff on the help. Jill the shady snake oil pusher.

Hello, white cross buddy!!  You are not the only one who got through some hectic and difficult times thanks to better living through modern chemistry.  Of course I don't use anything these days, but if given the choice, I'd still opt for a dose of mother's little helper rather than the plexus that Jill shills.  Yes, I'd trust the ingredients of a street drug before I'd try any plexus product.  (I refuse to capitalize the name of that expensive garbage.)

The Keller kids could've just as easily planned it for the rehearsal dinner or brunch on Sunday.  The Kellers surely could've celebrated a day early or late.  However, I suspect Jill encouraged and wanted them to have the party on the same day as Nurie's wedding.  I presume, if they paid to rent the gym, the Keller kids paid at least half the cost which wouldn't have happened if they'd done the anniversary on Friday or Sunday.  And Jill couldn't have comandeered the party to pretend it was a 'second reception' with real food and a bigger cake that she didn't pay for.

Surely there would have been a celebration for the Kellers' 40th anniversary, the date for which was fixed... 40 years ago. Nurthan chose to piggyback on their anniversary, not the other way round. They CHOSE to share that date. I don't see anything wrong with the Keller anniversary celebration on their date. It's not like these fundie receptions run long. Lots of time for a party afterwards. If Nathan and Nurie didn't want to share the limelight, they'd have chosen another day. 

I got married on what would have been my grandparents' 51st anniversary had my grandfather been alive. It would definitely have been a shared occasion otherwise, even though 51 is not a milestone. There'd be no time for a separate party, though, because in my family wedding festivities go all night. 🥳

I was thinking this. Jill is going to suck the lifeforce out of that poor Dingus.

Were any of the M kids in the wedding ceremony?  Perhaps that's the tiff between Anna and JRod?

I don't know why M kids would be in the wedding. There are soooooo many rodlets already they haven't room for more kids.  It also looks like Nathan is closer to Priscilla and David than Anna and SP. All things considered, if Jill is trying to social climb, TFDW is the one to glom on to. 

Anna and Josh showed up to the wedding looking like they'd just come in from working the back forty. Maybe Jill's ticked at their lack of respect for the occasion. Or maybe Anna was a bitch. She has form.

“Welp, time to learn how to cook Lawson’s favorite foods, Renee!”

 I wish Jill would realize if she were able to turn down the 24/7 grift to background noise, feed the kids a little more, clean things up a bit, let the other narcissists take center stage, fix her style/SEVERE makeup, and stay out of her own way, she MIGHT have had a chance at becoming a true adjacent.  But that’s a little too much like self-improvement and work.  The next option is to send the daughters out to get knocked up out of wedlock by fundie boys and rake up the shotgun marriages.  Following that, an “accidental” fire at the barn house for insurance money and more grift.

Could they even GET insurance on that building now? From what Jill's posted, the electrics alone don't look up to any code. And furnished, it's a deathtrap. Is Jill taking a page from Cristin Henry's book?

It wouldn't surprise me if Jill was the one who pushed for the anniversary party after the wedding rather than combine it with the rehearsal dinner the night prior. This way, she got two free meals paid for by the Kellers, rather than one.

Maybe the Kellers wouldn't even have had an anniversary party if Nurie and Nathan didn't get married on that day. Anniversary parties happen rarely in my family and only occasionally happen with my friends. Or maybe the Kellers suggested that date so travel would be easier for Nathan's side of the family, rather than going to Ohio and FL in the same month.

Just because JillR said the kids chose the date to honor the Kellers, doesn't mean its true.

My brother and his wife were married on our grandparent's anniversary.  Grandparents attended the wedding and reception.  There was no mention of it being their anniversary before, during, or after the reception, and there was certainly no celebration of that fact.  It was my brother's wedding.  Period. Grandparents were fine with it; they were pleased they shared the date.

I'm with you on the anniversary party. Considering the way fundies do weddings, and that Nurthan chose that particular date, it's perfectly fine that the Kellers celebrated on the same day and even "upstaged" the wedding. It's only now after repeated mocking on tv that some fundies feed their wedding guests anything more than cake and punch. Anything more than that can be considered upstaging. The Keller party was probably meant to be an after party for specific guests that Jill hijacked into a "second reception."

Jill is the type of short sighted social climber who thinks fame is more valuable than the type of real world connections that David possesses. I'm sure that Jill had Nurie ask Anna to be a bridesmaid as well as for the M kids to be in the wedding.

I feel like Jill's mother is more fundie than David's mother, who actually looks pretty normal. Even so, Jill's mother does not nearly have the same love affair with makeup that her daughter has...just the 80s hair. 

 

I don't think David's mother is very fundy at all.  Jill has told us repeatedly that David was a godless sinner in his younger days until someone handed him a pamphlet at the mall and he was saved.  That makes me think his parents weren't as fundy as Jill's.  And certainly not as fundy as Jill and David.

Hmmm...I don't think I've had any ice cream in the past few months...I'm personally thinking that wine and potato chips - with the occasional gin & tonic - have some amazing anti-viral properties.

OMG, be more dramatic, Jill. Nurie isn't dead (like the thousands of Americans who died from Covid because you couldn't get them all Plexus), she's married. I shudder to think what this does to Nurie's psyche and the rest of the poor kids still stuck at home. Hopefully, none of them feel guilty for wanting a life away from Jill.

I think Kaylee & Renee would make great wives for the Duggar boys. They're fundy, submissive, and don't seem to have any personality. Plus, unlike the last three Duggar daughters-in-law, they've never been part of a loving household so they're going to appreciative of the least little thing their husband does for them (like bringing them chocolate milk!) but won't expect them to be all that considerate to their needs.

I was wondering this too - what does a young, naive woman who has been controlled her entire life do once she's sprung from her family prison?  Does she call Mama 14 times a day?  Does Nathan attempt to slowly wean her from her horrible mother, or does he not know any better himself?  Does she see the world as new and exciting, or too big and terrifying?

The way Nurie adapted to different standards at the Pearls, gives me hope that she'll be able to at least adapt to the Keller ways if not begin finding her way in a few weeks or months.  She's already changed her hair and makeup away from Jill's normal standards and if her recent dresses are an indication she's ready to ditch the multiple layers.
