Katie and Travis: Will It Last?

Ok I don't have a life today. Been busting my brains trying to figure out why Northern fundies like the Clark's would practice no touching. I'm very certain it's the parents that probably challenged them to do that to prove the other person is actually in love with them and not after them for their "money". The Clark's appear to be very well off and affluent Christians in that area. Can't chance any scandals or broken hearts tarnishing the family name. They only have 3 kids. Kayla just got married. Two sons left who looked determined to not be caught in a picture showing any type of emotion. Just found out Mike Clark's girlfriend is biracial. Hugs all around for other friends except her boyfriend. Both couples are saying, "I love you". I guess that's a good thing, but I bet it's killing Katie to not at least hold his hand. Well, I guess it will be worth it.

I consider this to be high quality analysis and I'm running with it ūüĎćūüŹĽ

With Katie I feel so 50/50 because she seems like such a mix of all of her older sisters. She knows she looks just like Erin and so she'll be affectionate with Erin on Social Media and Cherin weren't quite as strict, but they were still pretty strict. As was Michaela and Brandon, although I'm still so fond of Michaela being like "I hug my friends at church, I'm hugging Brandon," and I do think there is a legit argument that holding hands is more intimate than hugging.

That said, she hangs out with Josie and Alyssa all of the time, two of the more "liberal" sisters in regard to pants and shorts and all of that. Is that what she wants? Maybe. Or maybe she's good in skirts as long as Travis keeps her ice cream addiction well fed. Skirts aren't a battle that everyone picks. I'm argumentative by nature, but I grew up in skirts and the only thing that bothered me was the below-the-knee requirement.

As for the touching... While it's obvious she wants to touch him, who could blame her? He's cute and hormones exist. But I don't know that she's particularly upset with the rule, depending on the level of koolaid she's drank.

Travis posted that his brother is engaged. The photos look like a carbon copy of their sister’s engagement a few months ago. 

Who wants to bet that Katie and Kelly are piling the pressure on Travis right about now?

I saw. She looks so uncomfortable and miserable. Judging a book by its cover they just didn’t give off good Companion vibes. But hey what does this old spinster with terrible taste in men know?

In the preview for the new season, doesn't Gill say an engagement is far down the line? I say Gil won't let Travis propose till after Katie turns 21 in October. They get engaged by the end of the year. 2022 wedding.

I would imagine that both sets of parents (excluding Kelly because she is just silly) would want Travis and Katie to wait until Travis has graduated. Katie has already qualified as a beautician/hairdresser and is hopefully working and saving. I cannot see Travis moving away from his family so Katie will have to leave and cleave which is probably no bad thing. In the next year or two Nathan, Lawson, maybe Trace and definitely Katie will be married leaving ‚Äújust‚ÄĚ eight kids at home. That‚Äôs more than enough people for Addallee and Ellie to look after whilst finishing up home school and performing babysitting duties. One day Kelly will have no girls left at home and will have to do some housework herself!¬†

@AngelfaceI bet she dread that day, hopefully, this would mean that the girls will have to wait a couple of years more to get married meaning they will not shift from sister/aunt mom to mother themselves without having time to enjoy even a little bit their 20

I saw the preview for the new season again and when asked about a ring, Travis told the person that she will probably be waiting a long time. Then Gil says something similar about the engagement being far down the line in the interviews.

when travis said that it was in November based off Katie's instagram, but it probably ly won't be until august because travis's brother didn't propose to his girlfriend until a few weeks after His sister got married on February 27. Travis's brother is getting married August 14

Yeah, but that was all filmed last year. Who knows where they're at now.

Travis just turned 20, his older brother just turned 22, and I think the sister is 23? Sister graduated "college" in 2019 according to social media, and it looks like brother is a junior or senior, so the Clarks definitely don't object to engagement before finishing school......and we know KJ doesn't either, so it's up to Gil to slow down the Travistie train lmao

The Clark family courtship/touching standards are so interesting to me. Katie can have a death grip on Travis's arm with her right hand, but her left hand has to be hovering awkwardly above his chest? If I'm remembering correctly, one of his siblings had similar engagement photos.

Here are his siblings engagement pics. Kayla’s one is very similar to Travis and Katie’s. Also, the Clarks managed to get all of their kids and engaged in like 4 and a half months.

I wonder what this means for his time in college? He would be able to finish his sophomore year (good God) but then...stay in school with a wife and babies coming? How would that work if Katie quit her job to b a mom? 

Also very BEC, but her nails look so very pointy to me.

I could see him staying in college while married as long as his parents keep paying for it and possibly paying for some other things.

Wait they’ve only been courting for a year? Seems like way longer.

They met in June 2019, started dating around that time and then started official courtship in March 2020. The Bates usually have a dating period and then a courting period.

      Just found out the sad news that Prince Phillip has passed away. Sending condolences to Free Jingers across the pond. Thinking of Queen Elizabeth, who met and fell in love with Prince Phillip as a teen.

      I am having a bad reaction to the second Covid shot and am going to the doctor in the morning. I had absolutely zero reaction to the first one. My arm was sore for maybe a day but I'm used to being in pain, so it was nothing. I got the second vaccine on Thursday morning, April 1st. I was sick for the next day and a half with flu like symptoms, but my arm has swelled up and is red and hot to the touch. I was advised by two nurses to go get checked out so I am. I've said since the beginning of the pandemic I'll take it as soon as I'm able but now I'm worried that I won't be able to get it again in the future, or possibly boosters. Just frustrated and sounding off tonight. I hope all FJers who celebrate had a nice day today.

      Stopped at the cemetery to visit my Grandparents and other family. I mentioned it on FB, which then asked me if the place offers curbside pickup?
