There are chapters on parents, siblings, friends – but the only chapter I was really interested in was the chapter about romantic relationships.The Duggars girls don’t date in the typical sense – they “court,” which is seeing someone with the intention of it leading to marriage.I am fascinated by the Duggars, the delightfully huge and conservative family featured on the hit TLC show, 19 Kids and Counting.They barely seem like they fit in the modern world, but they do always kind of look like they’re having a fun time. So when the four oldest girls, Jana, Jill, Jess, and Jinger released their new book, Growing Up Duggar: It’s All About Relationships, I immediately downloaded a copy onto my Kindle.It's a hands-off engagement, chaperoned by Jim Bob or Michelle Duggar or one of the siblings.
“I was definitely nervous going into it, but I wasn’t afraid that she was going to say no, because she has said, ‘I’m just waiting on you! The two are planning to get married near their hometown in Arkansas, and plan to get married before the end of the year — which means a wedding is right around the corner! Rumors started spreading that she was being courted by Lawson Bates, but those rumors were shot down by Lawson's mother.
Couples are supposedly better prepared for marriage.
But that's hard to fathom as the "19 Kids and Counting" are so young.
There are a lot of rules to follow, so I decided to take a break from my normal dating and try out the Duggar style.
When I started, Jessa was the only one of the four girls currently involved in a courting relationship, but since I started this experiment, People magazine reported that Jill is also courting.
