  1. http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/1070681 ... ated-below About Jana, he claims, "There have been a lot of guys who have been interested in her, I have gone to hear about each one, and so far she hasn’t felt that is the way the Lord is leading." To me, this sounds like he hasn't approved of anyone (he's only "gone to hear" about them?), and of course Jana won't go for anyone unless Daddy Dearest gives his thumbs up. And for Jinger, "Jinger is just a dynamic girl that a lot of guys have been interested in,†Jim Bob said. “But so far, she has not been intere
  2. A few sites posted about Jessa breaking some courtship rules with Ben, ie: holding hands the night before he proposed and hugging front to front after he did. Despite Michelle constantly insisting that the kids set their own boundaries, in which case, it's none of Jim Bob or Michelle's business if they break the rules, apparently when she noticed them holding hands the night before they got engaged at a prayer, she looked to Jim Bob and he told her it was okay because they were praying (see quote from Examiner article below). I mean, why is it up to Jim Bob to say it's okay if Ben
  3. John David seems desperate as hell and i'd love to be able to see behind the scenes of this family if only I was fundie would you marry into the Duggar family?
  4. http://www.theepochtimes.com/n3/1078993 ... ried-soon/ A few thoughts why no mention of Jana being single, is she in a courtship or have we forgotten she exists? Also what would be on a marriage application anyway especially to a Duggar?
  5. How long do y'all think it will be until the Duggars announce another courtship? Before Jessa's inevitable pregnancy announcement? Or will they just try to maintain the ratings with pregnancy and yet to be aired wedding stuff? I already feel something of a loss, I need potential mates to speculate over!
  6. . . . will be courting, married, or parents by November of next year? I get married a year and 6 days after Jessa and I'm curious how many of them will hit major milestones before then. My guesses: Courting - Jana and one of the older boys (possibly JD or Joseph) Married - Just Josh, Jill, and Jessa Parents - See above And as a bonus: I think Michelle is most likely to go completely crazy in the next year. She'll snap once Jill has Baby Dilly and start carrying around a loaf of bread wrapped in a blanket, while
  7. You know both Jim Bob and Michelle have gone on about how courtship avoids heartache and giving away pieces of your heart to the wrong person, etc. but that isn't really valid unless the courtship is successful. I mean, what if they start a courtship and don't like each other? Or one does but not the other. That leads to at least one person being very hurt. The idea that courtship prevents heartache is ridiculous really. You are putting an awful lot of pressure on the couple that it is God's plan and the one S/He's chosen to them as their perfect mate or whatever, so I imagine it m

    What would happen

    I was watching the episode where they were decorating the house last night, and Derick and Jill were in the bedroom, and having that discussion about not sleeping on the bed together, and some Howler came on and said that if they broke the rules, he'd have to tell JB. And the same episode, when they were talking about finance, JB talked about how he was still testing Derick, and that it could be over (IIRC) if they didn't like his response. What do you think would happen if they either broke their purity rules and did it, and the Squea-Howler told on them, and they said the marriag
  9. Jana is sad because Jim Bob is neglecting his headship responsibilities towards her He allows her to be overloaded with work. In a society where birthing babies and marriage is top priority. He is allowing her to be passed over by not finding her a husband. She appears to be a great sister, worker, child minder etc. so she is upholding her end.

  11. I think to be a Duggar husband (funny that I can't think of them as husband's with their own last name...ironic patriarchy)....they have to also be brainwashed. I don't think who they were independently matters once they become a "prayer" partner of JimBob's. I think he moves right in and controls and brainwashes. They give up all of the professional outside work that Gothard doesn't allow (don't see Derrick lasting long at Walmart...he'll probably become the Bookkeeper for the Duggar brand). Didn't he drop out of seminary? REAL seminary? Not the Gothard fake thing... A
  12. Why would Derick ever contact Jim Bob to be a prayer partner for his missionary work in Nepal? Something about Derick bugs me. His IG and Twitter say he "seeks to glorify Him with my life" yet when I google for Derick and his missionary work, nothing comes up. All I ever see of Derick is Duggar-related. I can't find anything about why he's a Christian, how he grew up in a believing family, really I can't find anything of Derick pre-Jill. I only found this link. I am not sure bustle.com is very credible but this does seem like it could be legit info, based on my personal
  13. Was this discussed already? Forgive me if I'm bringing up something old. When the girls were getting their hair done, one of the salon ladies asked Jana if she was dating anyone. Her answer caught my attention. She said no, but I swear I saw a smirk or something. I don't usually like to speculate because, really, I have no idea what's happening behind the scenes. But I got a funny feeling watching that. Anyone else?

    Jill has no Trousseau

    The trousseau consists of brand-new outfits to see a woman through her wedding, honeymoon, and newlywed days. The garments in a trousseau were hand-sewn by a mother, aunt, grandmother, or the girl herself, if skilled with a needle. Busy families procured the skills of a professional seamstress to outfit the bride-to-be.The going away outfit (for honeymoon) is a vital part of this arrangement

    Jonathan Stieger?

    Who is he and why are the Duggars following him on Twitter?
  16. Part 1 is here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=22886 Jessa Duggar is engaged to Ben Seewald. Someone who has been paying attention to this topic should post a recap.

    The Duggars seem desperate...

    I was thinking today. Jim Bob is marrying off the kids quickly it seems now. Is he worried about TLC money not coming in? Surly he must know the families time in the spotlight might not be forever. I mean they seem desperate just with getting a Facebook account and such. Just a thought...
  18. I know, I know, they are Fundamental Christians and staying a virgin until your wedding night is expected, but the lengths that the Duggars go to, not just in the Courting Rules, but also in bathing suit wear for the girls, and their emphasis on no frontal hugs, no dancing... it all leads to tempting impure thoughts (according to them). Is it just me, or does it almost feel like they put so much focus on trying not to have sex, or even stuff they feel encourages sexual/lustful feelings, that it's like that's all it seems to be about. It's almost like it's got a spotlight on it when
  19. does the transfer of headship/authority start slightly at courtship/engagement or only at marriage? i'm just wondering, because ever since jessa has been with ben, her clothes, hair and makeup have become well, less gothard-approved. given that they've only recently become engaged, i'm wondering whether this could be more to do with ben "allowing" jessa to do what she wants, because the other j'slaves are still pretty modest.... so i don't think it's something JB has allowed her to do. unless she's kind of told him she's gonna do what she wants (and a few of us have noted some tens

    If you had to guess...

    If you had to guess, other than Jessa, who is courting next? I've been reading through a lot of the posts and I've been trying to figure out who makes the most sense in terms of the show, since I fully believe they are holding back Jessa's engagement announcement for the show. Any thoughts?
  21. I thought this deserve it's own thread from the "Why COurtship is Fundamentally Flawed". There have been many reactions to it. Of course the Maxwells had to retaliate. How hypocritical they accuse the author of unBiblical thinking when their own model is hardly Biblical. titus2homemaker.com/2014/08/why-courtship-is-not-fundamentally-flawed/ Edited to fix broken link - please just cut off the http:// prefix, no need to replace . with the word DOT.
  22. I was reading an article on Starcasm (they seem obsessed with the Duggars lately) http://starcasm.net/archives/282035 about what happens when a Courtship doesn't work out and they talk about the oldest Bates boy and his failed Courtship prior to him finding his current wife. I knew about that, but then I read: "There is also some speculation that Jana Duggar had a failed courtship that was never publicly revealed. If that was the case, it’s good to know she would be able “to heal†without the scrutiny of the public eye." Does anyone know anything about Jana in a prev
  23. The big news broke somewhere in here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19243 Please try to limit this thread to discussion of Jessa's courtship and related matters. Season 7 of 19 Kids and Counting is discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=19302 And everything else about the Duggars is discussed here: viewtopic.php?f=8&t=20491

    Side hugs?

    *If this question has already been asked, please link me to it. I was over looking at the Bates blog and noticed the (at the time) engaged couple in the Bates family had pictures of them hugging normal (full frontal). Is it me or are the Bates a little less manic about side hugs being the only hugging allowed?
