James Mont is one of 4 brothers in his family. He is the father to 4 sons, the 3rd being Bard Mont. Bard is father to 4 sons, the 2nd being Jacob Mont. Jacob is my husband.
By now you may have caught on to the trend: The Mont middle name curses you with having only sons. Now, this may not seem like it's that big of a curse, but let's look at Bard's brothers' families (Jake's cousins). We counted the other day, and Jake has 6 boy cousins and 6 girl cousins. 50-50 exactly. Only his family of all boys throws off their numbers.
I was made aware of this curse when Jake & I were dating, and I had to accept the fact that if we got married, I would have only boys (which, as you can see, I have accepted).
Jake is SURE that we will break the curse. He thinks we may even do it on the first try. But just a warning to my future children: The Mont Curse will be passed on. We have every intention of using "Mont" as a middle name for one of our many boys.
p.s. We should know about this one in the next 6-7 weeks.
