Joe and Kendra: Holding Hands and Saying I Love You

Last thread:

Joe and Kendra are engaged, and just like last time, the title is what Kendra says she's looking forward to. Joe's choice of proposal location? His sister's wedding. Some of us called it tacky, some didn't care, but the important thing is that now we're getting ready for the first wedding for a Duggar dude since 2008. Hold onto your butts, y'all. :P

@Carm_88 let's hope our ears are spared!

Their engagement announcement video just makes me incredibly sad. They are both so young and awkward, it seems more like they're committing to prom than the rest of their lives. She seems like a very sweet and pleasant child. I can barely believe she's 18.

I kept expecting her to say that being engaged means that they would be planning a wedding and it felt odd that wasn't mentioned.

OMG. If he does sing the loyalty song to her, I will legit DIE. :laughing-rolling:

Exactly! She's just excited for saying "I love you" and doing ministry together. You can (and should) do those before you even consider getting engaged!

As much as I don't want anybody to get hurt, I'm really hoping that once a little of that reality tv sparkle fades away, Kendra or a family member will stop or at least delay this wedding.

Where's Marjorie Jackson at?

I think we can safely assume that we will never, ever hear that song at another Duggar wedding.

Do they will even have the time to think about? I mean if they follow the line in 3 months they will be married when they could think about delaying the wedding?

Marjorie is going to college and publishing coloring books about Jeebus. Good on her for having some initiative and drive, but she's basically Pinterest made flesh.

At least Marjorie isn't engaged to be a baby factory right now. I would rather she be annoying on social media versus being saddled with 87 kids.

I forgot for a second that Joe Duggar will be the first boy after Josh to get married. Wow, it really has been the daughters getting married for years. I am definitely going to highlight the elements of Joe's wedding. I hope Joe doesn't sing a song and just sticks to the vows. I think Kendra will have some of the Duggars as her bridesmaids, but I wish the brides would start including more non-Duggars in their bridal party.

I wouldn't assume anything. I mean I wouldn't have thought that one Duggar would propose at another Duggar's wedding! And yet here we are!

It would be awesome if they had a more normal-ish wedding. Like less than 500 people, with an actual dinner. Wonder if the boob can relinquish control to the bride's family or will puppet-string this too? Hell who am I kidding. Of course it will be standard digger style.

I should probably know this but does Marjorie go to an actual college or just some Bible study group that mascarades as college?

I think Joe and Kendra will have lots of guests, nothing small. I hope Joe gets himself a good suit and Kendra doesn't have to share their wedding day with someone else popping the question.

She turns 19 in August, I believe, and if they get married before then, she and Joy-Anna become the youngest brides to marry. If not, then Joy will still be the only teenage bride.

I doubt they'll wait. I think it's likely they'll stick with an engagement around three months like the others. So likely sometime between mid-August and mid-September.

Yep gotta make it fast in case all that hand-holding leads to sinful debauchery.

I think she goes to John Brown University, which is Christian but is a real college.

To confirm - Marjorie goes to an accredited college, John Brown University, in Arkansas. According to the school newspaper, she is a graphic design major. SO MUCH BETTER than any opportunities she would have as a Duggar. I wonder if she still would've gone to college?

By this time, she would be joyfully available, married lady with two kids and a boring tv show.

Yay Marjorie! 

We can be pretty sure  Joe will be the best Duggar husband seeing as Josh has pretty much dug a hole and thrown the bar in to it.  It just really feels like children playing house. And seeing that this engagement pretty much means they'll be together until they die I just hope they did get it right on their first try.  I'm pretty sure I could have lived a decent life if I had been forced to marry my first boyfriend. I still like him as a friend and he is a nice man. Still pretty glad he's not my husband though.  What's really scary is me and ex-boyfriend spent more alone time together in our first week of dating then Joe and Kendra will do before they are tied to eachother for ever. How can they gamble with their lives like that? I know, I know. Jesus.

I like to think that Marjorie realizes that she dodged a bullet by not marrying into the Duggar family as she never would have been able to go to college if she did.

Anytime I think about fundies rushing into marriage I'm reminded of a specific "Deep Thoughts by Jack Handey" quote from old SNL episodes. The one that goes, "Just because swans mate for life, I don't think it's that big of a deal. First of all, if you're a swan, you're probably not going to find a swan that looks that much better than the one you've got, so why not mate for life? -- Deep Thoughts, by Jack Handey" :pb_lol:

I'm sure she does. If they had gotten married I wonder if she would have had a child by now.

Don't forget there was a teenage groom!

      It's December and we still haven't had our first freeze of the season.

      In light of the issues with the electrical grid in Texas, perhaps I should make an appeal to Rufus to continue to keep us above freezing? 🤔

      Advice needed from anyone with experience planning a Catholic wedding
      She's been engaged less than a week and I've got questions.
      Booking a church or venue is done way in advance so we're on that now.   
      Why do churches ask what the date is when they say specifically on the website that you can't set a date until discussing it with the coordinator?  Why can't they ask for a range? Since when have Catholic churches been such pains in the ass about being a member of that parish to get married there?  She's coming in from out of state for the wedding, she doesn't have a parish here.  I'm not religious and my local parish church is ugly.  My childhood parish waived this and said they could marry there, but it's not an ideal location and aesthetically it's fine but she'd prefer older and more cathedralesque if they do the church wedding.   My grandpa's old church is beautiful and she's in love with it....but they're the only one who hasn't gotten back to us.  (St. Hedwig's for anyone familiar with Chicago's Bucktown) Bribes still work, right?  In the old days you could slip the church a "donation" and they'd be a lot more lenient about weddings, annulments, and funerals for non-practicing Catholics.  How are we supposed to figure out the going rate for graft 2021?   I have no problem lying to the administrative staff and claiming to be a practicing Catholic if it helps, does that make me a sociopath?  Although I don't want to lie to a priest directly.  Can you be a sociopath with religious guilt? I've been married twice, both times to Catholics.  First wedding in a Baptist church and second in congregational or community something.  I did that because I suck at planning this kind of thing and fundy-lites will marry anyone with a 20 minute meet and greet, apparently.  I wanted to elope both times and was over ruled both times so I resentfully half-assed it so this is the first time I'm trying to help plan a wedding properly.  
      The church she wants will waive the bride and groom being members if one of their parents are.  I love my daughter so much, but if I have to start actually attending church to make this work I will expect her to pay for the increase in my wine and edible budget.  Member for at least four months.  Driving from the burbs into the city once a week timing it so I get there just in time to toss them an envelope with money I'd rather keep and skedaddle is something I'd rather avoid.
      I know lots of people think what I'm trying to do is awful.  That non-practicing Catholics shouldn't get married in the church, that it's a sin to try and game the system, etc.  That church shopping for the aesthetic is  a sacrilege or such.  I understand how people can feel that way, it's valid.  But people like that would disapprove of me for a million other reasons anyway, so I'm okay with that.
      This is how I'm rationalizing it. 
      I raised her Catholic and while not practicing as an adult she does believe in God, Jesus, giving a shout out to Mary and all that.  They are going to raise their kids Catholic in the sense of sending them to CCD so they have the religious ed and then they can make their own choices as adults.   I spent thousands of dollars on CCD over the years and two out of three of my kids don't know what an apostle is.  They owe me.   Being Catholic is as much a cultural thing as a religious choice and that's the only one we have.   You can't opt out of being Catholic, as my sister once learned when she went fundy-lite, due to the indelible mark of baptism so they keep you on the roster.  If you can't leave the church without a formal declaration then I there should be something in it for us.  One wedding and burial per Catholic no matter how lapsed seems fair to me. When my uncle died in the late 1950s the church wouldn't allow him to be buried in a Catholic cemetery so they put him in a secular one.  Several years later my dad made a sizable "donation" and voila, look who got exhumed and is now buried next to Grandma and Grandpa.  Wish he was here now to handle this.

      When everything will go on as planned, I will marry Mr. S. at the end of the year. But honestly my optimism is fading away (Covid19 and one other fucking annoying issue, that is more likely to get the wedding rescheduled than Covid19) . I wanted to tell it here, just...well...because. You understand?

      Found this when googling Mother of the Bride dresses for Rod thread when Nurie was engaged...
      Now that my baby just got engaged I'm going need a mother of the bride dress myself, what do you think?  I'm going for tasteful and flattering and I think this fits the bill.
