    so the married couple doesn't seem to like each other. Great. Another bad marriage held together by religion.

    This family belongs or belonged to a Baptist denomination I used to belong to. They are pretty old fashioned and fundamentalist. Unlike the Catholic church which actually is against the form of fertility treatment they have, this church has not thought through the issue so I guess you can get litters.

    Why do you say that they don't like one another and try to live together?

    People just crack me up. People watch 1, 2, 3 episodes and they think they know everything about them. I've been watching for a while, and it seems like a normal family to me with more kids. I know that my wife and I don't always agree on everything, and we get into arguments. Seeing that this is a TV show, and they only have 1 hour a week they go for whatever will be most entertaining.

    To me they seem very involved with the kids, taking them all over the place doing family things. Recently they did a series on when they take the kids 1 at a time to places that the kids choose. Yes there are times where things are crazy... perhaps because there are 8 kids.

    Their entire attitude when talking to each other and to the camera.

    Same here...i think that they occassionally will snap at each, but I don't think anyone can really blame them. They have to be under tremendous stress with that many kids.

    Out of curiosity, I finally watched a few eps of this. I agree that she sometimes treats him like crap, but I can see me being the same way with EIGHT KIDS and I felt dear old hubby wasn't helping as much as I thought he should. :eek:

    It's interesting. I will give it that. Just the mechanics of having to do/feed/prepare/bathe/watch that many kids and they try to make life fun - I do like that they seem to want to do things with them (i.e. take them places) because I imagine a lot of parents would just sit them in front of the TV and hope things go well (or I've been watching too much Nanny 911 lately). I mean, really, what SANE person would want to take 8 kids "big bed" shopping? Did they ever think that could go well? But they did it any way, because they wanted the kids to feel special. That takes a special kind of person.

    Show maybe more interesting now that Jon was caught with a 23 year old woman at 2 am while Kate was out of town.

    I can see why Jon is tapping the 3rd grade teacher. If I had to live with Kate for more than 10 minutes I would do the same.

    She really does have to be about the most horrible wife I have ever seen. I really, really, have to hope that some of it is a put on for TV, but after watching pretty much every episode I kind of doubt it. :( Jon and the kids, even Mady, all deserve better.

    Wow. Another victim of the "reality show curse". Feel bad for all (10) of them... That's sad. :(

    geez now with these comments above it really makes me want to watch! She sounds pretty bad and i wouldnt be surprised if tlc has had to fence in their yard lol...i did read one article that they have a "body guard" when they go out.

    well if i had a decent news source, i wouldnt be so uninformed.

    Maybe i can moonlight as paparazzi :cool:

    Apparently their family isn't too happy with the show either. Kate's brother and sister-in-law, both of whom I believe have been on the show numerous times. They were shown helping out with babysitting and the such. They say how their marriage is now for show and Jon has a contract with Kate to do as he pleases as long as he shows up for the show.

    Here is a link to them being interviewed.
