Since it seems like they are moving to another state and Billy will be in law schoo,l and I doubt Janae will be working, who the eff is going to pay for all of them to live? Their parents? I swear, it seems like every person on the internet has some sort of trust fund they can all live off of. 

They'll probably live off school loans like many people do when they go to school. I, like everyone else, have no idea how they pay their bills, but Janae does have a full time job, and I doubt it's very expensive to live in Utah. It's not like they take 5 vacations a year and live in a nice place. I'm sure they get some help from their parents, whether it's in the form of free food or paying for gas every now and then. My parents help me out a tiny bit because they like to, but they're certainly not paying for much.

This is probably right.  I don't know where Billy is going to law school, but next to nobody worked part- or full-time at the school I went to, and most of us didn't have spouses to support us, either.  It's easy to get loans and scholarships to cover the cost of grad student living for three years, enough even to support a small family.  There were about 25 Mormons at my law school when I was there — 2 women, 4 unmarried men, and the rest were married men with young kids whose wives didn't work.  All this is to say that I doubt the pregnancy will have any impact on law school plans at all and in fact was part of the plan all along. 

 

This ties into something I think is amusing, namely, that Mormons are largely really politically conservative, but have no problem taking public benefits to support their young, large families while the men finish school.

She did say that the pregnancy was a huge surprise. I doubt it's been part of the plan all along.

Ah my bad.  I don't read hrg regularly, and was just operating from my baseline knowledge about what's common for Mormons.

I believe the CA law school option is in Billy's parent's area, so it's not outside the realm of possibility that they'd live with the inlaws during law school.

Universities offer lots of assistance to grad students and their families. My husband didn't go to law school, but there were several people in his grad program with kids (including some Mormons, what's the big deal?).  The University offered subsidized housing to all in the first several years of the program and offered subsidized childcare to those with kids.

I knew one Mormon family where the husband was in a foreign language literature program (stipend was maybe $12-14k/yr– far less than math and science fields).  The wife stayed home with the 2 babies, she free-cycled, clipped coupons, didn't buy new stuff for herself, they drove a 10 year old Saturn, and they surprisingly got by ok.  And this is in the greater NYC area – not UT.

I'm sure HRG and Billy will get through, they both have huge supportive families and seem to have been living frugally.

I was curious about her sister.  They seem like a really close family but I never see pictures of her kid's father.  I don't read her blog all that much so I could have missed it.  Just curious is all.

She said back in November (I think) that her sister was going through a divorce. She hasn't said anything other than that.

again, because she has class.

which is also why she spared us the 20-part series on details like cervical fluid and starting an "every other day adventure."  Unlike KERF.

Yeah, I really love how she manages to write every single day, yet never seems to "overshare". I really think I would like Janae IRL, though her blog does get boring to me sometimes. (I'm not a really big runner, and it IS a running blog so I'm not hating on her, just giving my opinion.)

From this morning's post (emphasis mine:)

 

"Billy will be getting 14 miles in on the treadmill this morning and I will go with him to run a few miles myself, lift some weights and do cool tricks in front of his treadmill to entertain him when he starts getting bored."

 

She is too cute.

Agreed 100%. The weight looks wonderful on her, she was a little too thin for my liking before. She looks beautiful and happy and classy.
