Duggar family is known to b crazy one and has its own set of rules for its children and grandchildren and other relatives. It holds such conservative views on every topic and especially regarding relationships. Pertaining to courtship, they have rules such as a chaperoned courtship, no full-frontal hugging, no dancing together, and no-hand-holding until the time of the marriage. Of course, kissing before marriage is out of the question.

The Duggar children and the rules

The older Duggar children seem to be adhering to these rules of the family until now. There is one named Jana Duggar for whom the fans particularly feel bad for. Her twin brother John David is engaged and hence people are wondering as to what would happen to her. One of the fans wrote on the social media:

“I’m so happy for him, now I want Jana to find someone,”

Michelle talked about the advice from one of her friend:

“She said, ‘In your marriage, there will be times you’re going to be very exhausted. Your hubby comes home after a hard day’s work, you get the baby to bed, and he is going to be looking forward to that time with you. Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be available when he calls.'”

She added:

“That has been such a lifesaver for our marriage,”

They are strict independent Baptists and Jim Bob said happily:

“We’re like a newlywed couple every day!”
