I Have Lots of Wtf Moments

Met a woman yesterday who has seven kids and an eighth on the way.
To be honest, she seemed totally rational and well balanced when talking to her but there’s not doubt in my mind that she was literally INSANE.
There was a programme last week about a couple that had 21 kids.

I mean wtf
[@406205,Babylon] Maybe read it again.

Otherwise WTF doesn't explain much.
I’m not sure either [@406205,Babylon] [@1011311,Stilltryinghard]
[@1011311,Stilltryinghard] where does morality come into it. This was a married couple who worked wtf was more about the woman going through 21 pregnancies and then bringing up all those children. Have no idea what you meant....your sentences made little sense

That's too many kids. Idc who you are.
Even getting them out would take two cars I don’t know how people even have time to sleep with that many [@831314,DearAmbellina2113]

She apparently hasn’t yet figured out what causes that.
[@587991,DarkSky] not the point.

SW people haven't figured out why people would ever have the damnable capacity to hurt themselves and others.. Gee!!
The water almost definitely [@587991,DarkSky]

[@1016510,Seren] lol!!

The couple with 22 are about to have their 23rd 🤦‍♀️
The mind boggles [@949508,V00dooCakeNinja]
SW User
[@1016510,Seren] 😬
[@949508,V00dooCakeNinja] lots of people collect cats and dogs and neglect them.
She’s not Catholic by any chance ? 😏

I’m sure. A good Christian. [@957625,BrokenParody]
[@957625,BrokenParody] almost definitely..I seem to attract Catholics like locusts
[@1016510,Seren] Catholic chick magnet you 😏
she probably thought u were 2
Yeah [@1011311,Stilltryinghard]

We've got over seven billion people - it's egomania!
[@1016510,Seren] abusive man in the house or anything like that???
She seemed quite thrilled with the whole thing so not sure this is the case no [@1011311,Stilltryinghard]
[@1016510,Seren] Have you ever heard of "folie a deux?" or something like that?

This case sounds like it.

folie a deux
n.the simultaneous occurrence of symptoms of a mental disorder (as delusions) in two persons who are closely related (as siblings or man and wife)


So I say this is abuse where both are unconscious of the abuse but it exists and both are doing it to each other, and to their children's future prospects.

But then again I think maybe most families do that on some level...

I'm just imagining the kind of income you'd need to raise that many kids these days.
[@557074,PerthSurfer] Imagine on. Crazy people do have their ways to stay that way, especially re: exploiting peoples' sense of decency in not meddling 2 much..

That's a lot
Either that or she’s gonna be scaffolded for life [@6492,juiceyangel333]
juiceyangel333 · 26-30, F
[@1016510,Seren] 😅😅 is she rich?
[@6492,juiceyangel333] they had a brand new Estate car but I dunno 🤷‍♀️
SW User
Nothing wrong with that.100 years ago large families were the norm.

There were 6 of us and that was difficult enough 😳
[@265524,comfi1] I can only imagine and shudder at the thought of the bathroom
AnthonyJ · 61-69, M
In this day and age it's a bit hard to rationalize 😳
I agree [@633242,AnthonyJ]
ravenwind43 · 46-50, F
Honestly, if she wants all those kids and can afford them why not? Large families aren't a new thing, just less common for a variety of reasons:)
