    Ok - so many of us wouldn't spend that much on a wedding - but there are many, many that would - just look at all the bridal reality shows out there. I think they should have a unique setting for the wedding, but if they are having it at Janet's church that is unique - I can't believe Lisa is charging so much for a reception room at the hotel! WOW! I am assuming at 20k we are talking huge wedding (500+). I am suprised that Carly just assumed that Jack would be ok with spending 10k to send JJ to boarding school. He is already in private school aparently... isn't that good enough. Man, the kid is just in middle school - this isn't university or anything! Anyway - I am in the minority and like Janet with Jack more than Carly with Jack - Carly has burned way too many bridges with me. Best Wishes on the nuptials to Janet and Jack (and may Carly not ruin it for them!)

    jenks - Jack and Carly almost slept together... they never did.. janet interupted and they stopped. and jack admitted it to Janet as well.. I think everyone is entitled to their dream wedding and Jack is pushing her to do it! Just let them be happy.. let carly go to work to help support JJ's school (I really don't understand why hes going to boarding school anyway aren't the schools in oakdale any good??

    akosohu I agree with you! Jack volunteered all of this, Janet did not ask. I can see her being caught up in it all, though, she has struggled for so long. Carley is only jealous because she is not in Janet's place. Carley doesn't have on sensible bone in her body!

    No Janet didn't come out and ask Jack for anything but she is a classic manipulator. She manged to bat her eyes and play the martyr and low and behold she gets her way. Don't forget this woman has been around the block more than a few times. I agree though, let Jack fall on his face when he realizes how in debt he is. Carly needs to find a new strong man and forget about Jack. He's a judgmental jerk to her most of the time anyway.

    Hi guys --

    please remember not to post in all caps ... it is against website guidelines because it can be hard for other people to read. Thanks!

    Thank you, Kristi, for informing some of the posters about posting in caps. It is most annoying and very difficult to read, especially for those of us who are senior citizens. Thank you again.

    Bon soir, mes amis!
    I agree with those of you who said let Jack go bankrupt with spending all this money that he does not have. He is fool to be suckered in by Janet's wanting such an extravagant wedding. I think Janet must believe Jack has a money tree. Ha! Ha!

    I do not like Janet, never did. Personally, I believe she is a user. The woman came to town with an agenda to take Brad away from Katie. So glad she did not succeed. Then she went after Jack.

    Since Carly is a designer, it would have been nice if she would have offered to make Janet's and Sage's dresses. On the other hand, Carly is damnably jealous of Janet's being with Jack. That would explain why she did not offer to do it.

    Eventually, Carly and Jack will be together.

    JJ is absolutely ridiculous in wanting to go to such an expensive school. He is only in middle school. I believe he made that decision to get away from Liberty since their parents do not want them together. If Carly wants him there, she should get a job designing clothing. Then, she would be able to pay the tuition. She and Jack could share in the expenses.

    I knew Dani was up to no good. I thought she and Spencer were in cahoots. I knew Craig was returning, but had no idea that he was involved with her.

    simscb, I think you may have j.j. & parker confused. Parker is the one who likes liberty, & j.j. Is the "stray" kid carly & jack took in when his mom (julie) died. Remember that whole ordeal?

    Finally! A good show, something sane to watch.

    Janet's wedding is becoming the Lady Di event. I know that hurts Carly . I wonder if the event will take place.

    Dani, how did she become such a super cop?

    Holdumb, Ugh!
