  1. Hi, new member here. I came across something this morning on Starcasm...an article about Jana Dugger possibly in a courtship with "a young business analyst/family friend from Arkansas." Here's the link to the article: http://starcasm.net/archives/273030 Has anyone heard anything about this? Apparently she's supposedly in Northwest Arkansas working with doulas, so that was how they might have met.

    Jim Bob The Matchmaker

    I was thinking last night as I was watching the engagement episode that Jim Bob has set both of his daughters up with the men who will be (or might become) their husbands. He told Ben to text Jessa about bible texts and thought Derick would work for Jill because of their 'sweet hearts.' And then I look at Jana getting choked up about Jill leaving. it has to be painful that Dad, the matchmaker, hasn't sought out a man for her yet. Or for Jinger. How does he decide which girl to introduce to men? Sigh.

    Why Jill First?

    Forgive me if this answer is buried in one of the courting threads. The way TLC has shown it, Jessa and Ben started courting first, but Jill who started after them is already engaged. It just seems off to me given how much they emphasize courting, and taking time. That Jill would get married first when she started courting second.
  4. Recently, Jim Bob has made quite a few interesting comments re: courtship. During the premiere he declared it "open season" for courting. Also, he stated that he has suggested guys to the girls in the past and they have not been interested but lately they have been interested. I wonder what is responsible for the change. Age, peer pressure, a little bit of both?
  5. At about 4:35, Jimmy Fallon pokes fun at Ben asking Jessa to court. Looking at the scene again, I'm convinced this courtship was not staged, in my personal opinion. After Ben asks Jessa, she freezes, as if she's thinking of what the "right" thing to do. She's probably trying to think about what she read in the prince charming book. She stares at Michelle for a second, before she awkwardly decides to hug her, then JB says that she can hug Ben for 30 seconds. They weren't even comfortable enough with each other to give a side hug; she had to get permission first. http://y
  6. I thought this needed its own thread. Interesting how JB responded to the Gothard scandal. I think the response to teen sexual desire seemed canned. An done again they can't give a phone interview without Jim Bob in the room. Not breaking link cause it's the Wire. http://www.thewire.com/culture/2014/04/ ... ou/359339/
  7. This showed up on the front page of yahoos site. I read it and wanted to throw up and my eyes rolled out of my head. Not breaking because its Yahoo ( seriously, how did this get front page on their site?) http://shine.yahoo.com/parenting/jessa- ... 00802.html According to the author, being under a headship ( whether you like it or not), not being able to pursue higher education, not being allowed to LEAVE THE HOUSE ALONE at age 20 is more in line with feminism than a pop star choosing to wear little clothing and to have sexually themed performances.
  8. 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=19312
  9. Duggars? Maxwells? Bates? Muncks? Phillips? Paines? Even Miss Raquel? Who's going to take a step towards escaping the clutches of their parents in 2014? I think Stevehovah is really working to try and find someone for Anna Maxwell to prove the doubters (read: FJ) who say that his daughters are going to be spinsters forever... and considering how many Bates are shacking up, I really think another Duggar girl might get pushed into something. There are no more babies and only a few preschoolers... I think they will try and sell Jinger off to the highest bidder, as Jill's t
  10. So, anyone have any predictions for courtships in 2013? My prediction #1: JT Phillips and Jana Duggar. I am sure their respective headships are literally drooling about the financial gain by merging their two families. The Duggars have sure been spending a lot more time at the VF functions these days. My prediction #2: Still no Prince Charming for Poor Sarah.

    Duggar/Bates Courtship!

    Do we ever see it ever happening? Pair 'em up! See what combinations we can come up with, and why (regardless of age similarities)
  12. For those of you who don't watch Glee/haven't been watching it lately, here's some quick background info: Kurt and Blaine have a well known reality tv obsession. Blaine also really wants to get married, despite the obvious obstacles of age (they're both around 18-19), distance (one lives in ohio, the other lives in nyc) and the fact that they aren't exactly together right now. For all of the reasons above, this makes me want to laugh and cry at the same time.
  13. Poor Jinger talked out of moving to DC by her parents.Not a one of the girls is courting and we all know all this talk about the girls learning to be nurses or midwives has been talk and none of them will ever get real jobs following there skills.Will JB ever let go and let them be free ?lets face it some them are getting closer to 25 and the thought of them being 30 year old maids living at home with there parent no jobs and no one courting there life just ticking away.I throught maybe this season you might here of one of the girls at least saying someone had interest in them not to say they
  14. There's a new video by TLC with the Duggar girls talking about relationships with boys blah blah and how bad romance novels are. In A love that Multiplies Michelle says romance novels are porn for women. And why do they refer to them as boys when talking of the older Duggar daughters? It is funny reading comments defending how the girls are lucky to have 'protection'. Anyway Lather rinse and repeat. We have heard this talk before.
  15. When the Duggar's go to China, an instructor asked Jim Bob for permission to court. Jim responded in wanting to fight. lol So, no suitors for the Duggar girls for awhile. Now, if someone can post a clip of it, since I don't have television anymore, that would be great.
  16. I was thinking today how interesting it would be if Jim Bob and/or Michelle had to create a dating profile if one of them passed away (not wanting that, but if it happened) What would it look like? What would be included? How would they explain to the person seeking he or she that there are 19 kids? I thought this would just be something fun to do be creative
  17. And it's well-worth the read. In sum: He had a 'number of phone conversations' with her father. And, what do you know ... she had no idea he had been pursuing her all along! But boy was she happy when she found out! Squee! Bonus: there's a sterile, slightly blurry engagement photo ... complete with artistically shadowy edges!
  18. Not even exaggerating. Also Jessa and Jinger. (Jill isn't going anywhere, since she's the Sarah Maxwell of the Duggar family). I just want the girls to get out of that house so bad.
  19. We talk a lot here about why the Duggar older daughters aren't courting/getting married. I think that we are asking the wrong question, after all they are still very young (Jana is 22? That is still young, even in fundie land). I think that the question is why did Josh get married at 19? Most fundie guys are single at that age, trying to start a business cutting down trees, towing cars, or plowing fields (I know, there is that weird kid who got married at 17, but that is just weird!). I can't think of another one who was married at that age. I think that Josh was married off due to
  20. Someone else in the Duggars on the Today Show thread picked up on this. I don't know much about the Query family. In the comments page here a lot of people were saying Anna looked pregnant, but one commenter also mentioned that there's some courtin' goin' on. duggarsblog.blogspot.com/2012/04/more-new-photos.html Unknown - 9691 - "J" said... 25 UPDATE! There is a Duggar courtship on the horizon ------------------------------ In response to the question "who is the other family?" The other family is the Query family. They are close friends with
  21. They aren't all needed to do all the chores and schooling, and the show has been dragging for a while with only the odd pregnancy as a decent storyline. If one of the daughters were to get married and set up home, that would be a major story arc that could sustain the show for at least a season. The girls are attractive and accomplished, and would (at least at the beginning of the show) surely been accepted into almost any fundy royalty family, as well as lesser known ones. We know that at heart JB is a business man, and that TLC would have no qualms telling him what they think should be done
  22. I think she was happy in the first series as the fact that Josh was engaged meant that she would be next to 'escape' and get her own life/family. Here we are though, four years later, and Jana isn't even permitted to court. She's a year older than Josh was having Kynzie! I reckon she managed to 'keep sweet' somewhat thinking she would soon get out of there, but with every passing year it looks less likely. No wonder she's so depressed!

    The Duggar conundrum

    This is my first time post as a long time lurker. I first caught the Duggar's one Friday evening when my headship was out and I was channel surfing and I was immediately fascinated. My feelings were mixed and I continue to be confused about my feelings for this by this family. On one hand they are totally mad. 19 kids, how can anyone afford either emotionally or financially to bring up 19 children? They cannot possibly get the attention they need. The gender roles OMG, girls keep house and have babies boys do manly stuff and are in charge. No way on this earth! That make me want to
  24. I was stalking instagram and came across a young Duggar friend Lizzy102096 who is 15 or 16. She just got her learner's permit. She is "promised" to a just-turned 16yo. She posts all kinds of comments about her "future husband" and it's just so... unsettling to me. She is a CHILD! He is a CHILD! She's like a junior high school girl with her first boyfriend. About halfway down Lizzy'Tiffany's instagram page she explains how she met the Duggars - her mom stalked called J'chelle and in their conversation it came out that her husband was a painter, and Mrs. Duggar had been praying to fi
