  16. If Derick proposed a couple of weeks ago doesn't that mean that when their courtship was announced they were already engaged? Also is it significant that Ben is with Jessa in the large family picture taken outside? I am so happy for Jill and Derick and watching the video, I hope they will be very happy together.

  41. This first interview did not give a positive impression to me. My basic question is why do the Duggars hold hands on engagement? I thought that a woman is betrothed or engaged to be married but then i.e. THEN gives her hand in the marriage and is given away at the marriage ceremony by her parents. The hand holding looks like an attempt to claim and love the betrothed partner already. I think Erin Bates and Chad Paine did not hold hands before they married, Erin likes the most formal approach I think; that is an excellent example and seems preferable. Also it seems that a bride to be should be very quiet when her fiancé speaks and not talk at the same time he is talking and let him finish his sentences. These points change the first impression of the happy news expressed.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hopefully Jessa does not pattern herself after this example. Jill is not very responsible to the others who may look up to her as an example. Also what is this claiming right away the wedding will be big?

    ReplyDelete
  43. This blog should print more of the comments to give a true depiction of people's comments, not just some comments that make it seem like that is everyone's point of view.

  44. Yey! Mazal tov! so happy for them!!

    ReplyDelete
  45. So, if he asked a few weeks ago, were they actually already engaged by the time they announced they were courting 9 days ago?

    ReplyDelete
  46. I wish the best....

    I know that Jesus Messiah is important part of Marriage even international conditions!

  47. He looks like Ryan from The Office.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Aww, I just love seeing that "new love" joy in both of them! I hope this is a memorable time for them as they get ready to start their lives as husband and wife. Congratulations Jill and Derick!

    ReplyDelete
  49. YAY!!! So so soooo happy for them! Jill will be a beautiful bride!!!

  50. Gen_5:32 And Noah was five hundred years old: and Noah begat Shem, Ham, and Japheth.

    Notice 5 in 500 ....... Divide an apple in half and see a star shape with five points. Now we can remember that Noah was 500 years old exactly (not a year over or under) when he begat Shem, Ham and Japheth....

    ReplyDelete
  53. It would have been nice to have heard a bit about the actual moment of engagement. They are at the wedding day planning already omygosh! Love, flowers, candy, setting, a proposal, reaction, tears of joy, happiness, what about all that???

    what did Jill do wrong? and of course the wedding is going to be big. There are more than 20 people in Jill's immediate family alone.

  64. Anon 14... Jill is so bubbly, she talks over people all of the time. I think she is just so used to being interviewed and speaking out that she just hasn't developed the art of allowing others to finish their sentences. She's young and no doubt she will have plenty of opportunity to learn this lesson. I wouldn't hold it against her, she's a delightful, warm, caring person and has such a gentle loving heart I wouldn't begrudge her this lapse. She will learn, we are all works in progress. I thought it was interesting what you said about holding hands and your rational. I find the courtship process so interesting, and have marveled at the numerous ways of practicing courtship. Shalom

  65. Jill won't have to change her monogram :)

  66. I'm so excited for Jill and Derick and both of their families! Good for them for keeping the news private for awhile. I think fans can sometimes forget that they are actual people and can still hold on to some of their privacy, even for just a couple of weeks! Also in my opinion holding hands during the engagement seems perfectly acceptable. Erin and Chad Paine did hold hands while engaged and are such a wonderful example to many. I can't wait to see their wedding next week!!! Congrats to Jill and Derick!

  67. Congratulations, I wish you a lifetime of happiness!

  68. Like Anonymous 14 and Anonymous 15 I also am questioning the front to side hugs and the hand holding. The paraphrased words of Jill have come back to my mind today, "We do not want to stir up in guys feelings that can not be righteously fulfilled". The wedding is awhile off and the feelings stirred up can't become righteous until then. How is this physical contact so different from kissing? This is going beyond the spirit of the law to the letter of the law. They have already lost the spirit of their law by and it will be gone by the end of the next few months until the actual wedding gets here. The kind of hand holding and hugging they are doing looks like two have become one already. Sorry it is not all just 'likes' and 'thumbs ups'.

  69. I loved the video but the commercial that played before the video was an ad for Plan B birth control pill, which I am sure your family is totally against! I am against it too and just wanted you to know. My family loves watching your show each week. I have two girls, 11 & 13, and I am wanting them to use the courting system also, so they are learning a lot. Thanks for your program!!

  70. Anonymous 34 you err a bit and it fits when applying to how other people who try to speak up get treated.

  71. The posts move around so the comments don't fit any more the comment previous to this one fits 41 now.

  74. I'm so happy for them! Great to see a couple who really wants to honor God with their relationship.

  75. I love the Duggars! But this is the second time I noticed Jill finished the other person's sentences. The first video I saw her doing it was when Jana was asked and she completed her sentences. I do the same thing sometimes, but watching Jill made me cringe a little. Still, I'm excited for her and look forward to a Duggar wedding, yay!

    ReplyDelete
  76. They look so happy and in love. Congratulations to Jill and Derik & the rest of the Duggar clan from Australia. May God Bless continue to you in your new season of life.

  77. I wonder what would happen if they duggar girls kissed before marriage or held hands or full hugs or whatever.what would michelle and jim bob do?

    ReplyDelete
  78. I also noticed that Ben is in both of the family shots, the one outside and one inside with the instruments. Could they possibly be engaged too or just including him more?

    ReplyDelete
  79. When I saw this I thought it was Jessa and then I saw it was Jill I almost died. So HAPPY FOR THEM I hope Ben still well still ask Jessa soon♥:-) :-)

    ReplyDelete
  80. I think Jill will have Jana as her Maid of Honor and Jessa will have Jinger. It makes sense.

    ReplyDelete
  81. I thank God for the Duggar family. What a Christian example they are. I appreciate the dating standards and wish I had taught these standards to my two daughters. However, I don't even know of many "Christian" families that would adopt these godly principles. Praise God for a family who wants to please God and stands up for the Lord Jesus Christ.

    ReplyDelete
  82. I love the Duggar family and how they live their life. God's love shines through in each Duggar's face. I hope their show, 19 Kids & Counting continues to bless people.

    ReplyDelete
  83. Obviously to hold on to her purity 'til after the alter Jill needs a halter and the chaperones for her should not turn their backs on this very happy couple. What a display of affection!

    ReplyDelete
  84. Ahhhhhhhh!!!! I can'tttttttt <3 She has always been my favorite Duggar and I'm just soooo happy that she's found a great man to spend the rest of her life with <3 Cngratssssss

    ReplyDelete
  85. awww so cute!! God's put your life together for a reason so your blessing can continue and the blessing that you all already receive to never forget :) May the Lord keep you guys under the purity and the blessing of his love.

    ReplyDelete
  86. Sooooo cute! Did you catch, at the end, how they both secretly mouthed a little kiss together, since they're saving the "real deal" for their wedding ceremony? They are obviously so in love!
    Now, Lily and Ellie will have another anniversary date to add to the list under the "Birthdays" tab!
