7 Duggar Family-Approved Courtship Moves

Love is in the air … love and Bible sermons. This next season of “19 Kids & Counting” will feature the courtship of daughter Jessa Duggar, 20, who is being pursued by her Dad- and Jesus-approved beau Ben Seewald for lifelong baby-making. The lovebirds met in church — where else? — and asked their parents for permission engage to monitored texting and phone calls about, People scandalously dishes, topics ranging from theology to Scripture. But don’t call what Jessa and Ben are doing “dating.” Dating, as Duggar patriarch Jim Bob explains, is when a couple pairs off alone and “that sometimes leads to a more physical relationship.” Jessa and Ben are formally “courting”: their  love affair will blossom under the watchful eyes of both of their parents (and the 47 children they have between them). Courting, explained Jim Bob, “is getting to know each other in a group setting, both families spending time together and the couple setting goals together to determine if they are meant to marry.”

  • An Iowa woman has been charged with extortion after she threatened to reveal a “19 Kids and Counting” cast member in “apparently intimate situations.” You mean like holding hands? Scandalous!  Teresa Hunt wanted Discovery Communications for $10,000 or else she would go to magazines with the pic. The female cast member is unspecified, but this lady claimed she was “sleeping with a 56-year-old man.” Look, we all want TLC to cancel the show, lady! Extortion is still illegal.  [Huffington Post]

Michelle Duggar Of “19 Kids And Counting” Wins Mother Of The Year Award

Oh, dear. TLC’s resident brood sow “19 Kids and Counting” star Michelle Duggar has received a “Mother of the Year Award.” Perhaps she is a fine mother to her children, but she is most famous for having many of them — which is not in-and-of-itself a marker of good parenthood at all. It’s silly to equate the idea of being a “good mother” with a having good child-bearing hips. (I’m not saying having lots of kids automatically makes you a bad mom — I’m one of five kids, after all — so don’t kick up a fuss!) I wonder what kinda message this sends to mommies who feel stressed with only one or two kids. Keep reading »
