I don’t really watch 19 Kids and Counting (I’ve seen an episode or two) but I thought some of you might want to know she’s engaged after 11 months of courting. Apparently now they get to hold each other’s hands!!!

Man, I really don’t know how they do it. My hormones would be raging lol.

Congrats to them. I couldn’t do it, my husband and ?I couldn’t keep our hands off of each other the first time we went out. Let alone not hold hands or kiss.

Man, his handwriting is beautiful.
That’s a lotta self-control right there… I can’t imagine not doing anything more than holding hands at this point.

I would’ve just imploded if I tried that with SO. I suppose they really draw strength from their faith. Is it weird that I’m curious about how their wedding night will go?

GirlyGirl24: Ugh the kid she is marrying is 19. So young!!! She also has no job skills or education. Bad situation. I hope she is still happy in 5 years. Basically their faith is based on the Quiverfull movement- have as manychildren as possible
So they will likely be married very soon, pregnant within the year. Thats a whole lot of change for a young lady who is not allowed to go to the grocery store alone. I hope this Ben guy is decent to her because it will be incredibly difficult for her to leave if he isnt. I feel scared for her.

Good for them! I certainly couldn’t do it.

Boxerlover24: I completely agree. Situations like this really worry me. The question is, will she have as many children as her mother has?

He finally proposed?! Yay! I watched a marathon of that show once & it included the episodes where those 2 started courting & another when one of her older sisters got engaged. . .and started holding hands! Hahahaha! I make fun, but I also think it’s neat that they are so old fashioned. I wish I would’ve waited to have sex until I was married & could say I’ve only been with my husband. The holding hands thing, the side hugs, & the fact that they have their first kiss on the altar at their wedding is a bit extreme for me though.

bmo88: God I hope not. That family already produced 19 un educated ignorant ( well, some of them- though I hope they can change as they get more freedom)people, some of whom have gone on to have children with the same upbringing.
Im sorry but any cult that encourages irresponsible child rearing ( many MANY families in this cult live in POVERTY- the duggars got lucky with the TV show) and frown upon higher ed ( college is discouraged for everyone- wonder why nobody has gone yet?) gets a massive EYE roll from me and that doesn’t even touch on their views on women.

I’m pretty sure that the Duggars were doing well financially before they “got lucky” with a tv show.
Anyway, they look like a cute couple and I wish them the best. If I got married at 20 holy crap that would’ve been a disaster lol.
