The Merrifields Seeking Sister Wife in Roberta
Taking the route into polygamy did not come naturally to the Merrifields. It took many years of planning and acceptance when Garrick said he felt a calling from God to enter into Polygamy. He spoke with Dannielle about the sudden call to enter into Polygamy, and she was not comfortable about it. Truly, they had been having so many challenges in their marriage, so when he opened up this new window, she prayed on it – well, faith has always been extremely important in their family. After much praying, she accepted and they went on a polygamy dating site where they met Roberta from Brazil.
The Merifield’s Traveled to Mexico to Visit Roberta
Along with their two children and Roberta’s mom, they all met up in Mexico. After the first night in Mexico, Garrick proposed to Roberta. However, for her to officially relocate to the U.S, their best option was for Garrick to divorce Dannielle so that Roberta can get a K1 visa. From there she could marry Garrick and come to live with them. So, after the divorce, the couple flew to Mexico where they spent eight days with Roberta, but the entire time, Garrick and Roberta shared a room.
Roberta Concerns on the First Night with Garrick
On the first night, Roberta was concerned about leaving Dannielle alone. So, she invited her to come to join them on the bed. Sadly, when Dannielle ran to go get her Pajamas, little did she know that her husband and sister’s wife had been quickly intimate before she returned. When she found out a few days later, she tried to downplay it but it broke her heart nonetheless. Roberta saw the jealousy and knew she couldn’t be with Garrick if this was not resolved. As they were leaving Mexico, Garrick broke down at the thought of saying goodbye to her.
Dannielle Merrifield Attempts To Talk To Garrick
Still having strings of jealousy from the incident that happened in Mexico, Dannielle attempted to talk it out with Garrick, but he could not understand where her anger was coming from or channeled to. She rather felt he and Roberta would have not invited her into their bedroom on the first night. It felt like a betrayal and she was the third wheel. Yes, she has accepted this polygamy life, but seeing her husband with another woman felt very different. Besides, Garrick is seemingly not addressing the real pain she is feeling.
Garrick’s View on Dannielle’s Jealousy
At the time Garrick spoke with the producers, he said, “No, I don’t have concerns that Dannielle thinks that she’s being forced or some way to live this way. I think without a doubt she’s convinced that God led this to her in her life, to bless her and that she’s not just, you know, doing it ’cause it’s what I wanted.”
Nevertheless, he feels God has yet to deliver Dannielle from jealousy and hopes she can get past it as this was a choice they made together.
