    The wedding dresses they wear are huge...also the outfits they wear are a bit skimpy.

    I'm not sure I like the idea of 'grabbing' a girl but I guess the girls are used to the way the community works.

    They get married very very young.

    A few things thar I can't seem to understand is how do big families live in such small caravans? Why do the girls leave school so early to stay at home and do the housework? How do they get all that money for those fancy weddings?

    My hubby always wonders, how can they have really expensive cars and can afford £10,000 wedding lol

    We was saying that in some ways living it a large static caravan isn't too much of a daft idea......It's cheaper than a house, has all the comforts of a home and they don't have to pay council tax ( I think) The only thing that got me was they didn't have toilet in the caravan!

    OH and I were discussing this last night and were thinking do they pay income tax or anything as I would think a lot of cash in hand must go on. They don't have toilets in their caravans as last week one of the brides said that they felt it was very unhygenic. I feel sorry for the girls as they can barely read or write which in turn leads them to accepting the traveller way of life as it is all they know. Another question is why wear such lavish dresses on their wedding day and barely a belt any other time lol.

    If they travel around so much, they avoid bills...council tax...mortgage...! I couldn't believe that guy in this weeks episode who buys a brand new car twice a year! Clearly the recession hasn't affected them. Made me chuckle a bit when they were discussing how they have morals...and take religion very seriously...and then on the other hand you have 6 year old + girls dressed like...well with next to nothing on dancing so provocatively!

    Good on the independent girls though, who are fighting back and getting jobs...getting educated!
