  14. Jill and Derrick look so in love! I'm so happy for them and for Jessa and Ben too. I am so proud of Jessa and Ben of waiting for their right time for them to get engaged, being that they're being pressure my everyone to get married. Their time will come, when they feel it in their hearts, in the meantime I hope they enjoy every bit of their courtship.

  15. Love that picture of Jill and Derick. What a sweet couple they are! They seem so full of joy and happiness. An example to young people of the blessing of doing things God's way.

  16. Thanks for sharing photos... Congrats to the newlyweds... Though they have shown appropriate reserve during their courtship and engagement, there is also behavior that is appropriate and not appropriate for couples after marriage. You show that you are in love, and that you are united, and that is great.Though the couple is entitled "to have and to hold" as it says in their vows, there is still a certain reserve you show in public versus alone together. Your bodies belong to each other, not to the public.

  33. Jill and Derick seem so happy and relaxed. When you do things the way they did in their relationship it makes it a much happier start to their future. They are just glowing and it is all because they did things right. Ben and Jesse look happy too can't wait to see Jill and Derick ' s Wedding and see how Jessa's relationship progresses. Best of wishes to both of you, you are setting a very good example for young people just starting out.

  34. It would be really interesting to hear Jills perception on home life now that she is living alone with her husband as opposed to being an older buddy and wrangling her siblings. :) please do ask this when/if you get a chance! I'm sure it is quite different living in a house with one other person instead of a houseful. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  35. congratulations to you both what a blessing !!! May you be blessed with many many years to come :-)

    ReplyDelete
  36. Jill and Derick are a precious Godly couple. To the lady who commented on Jill sitting on Dericks lap??? They are married!!!! That is acceptable. Geesh!!! Leave them alone!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. She SURE IS sittin' on his lap!

  38. Jessa and Ben look as though they may be holding hands... that camera lens is closer to their faces and not the hands which tells me they may be hiding something....

    ReplyDelete
  39. @Anonymous As long as THEY feel comfortable in what they do, who are we to judge...

    ReplyDelete
  40. Jill and Derick I wish you both every happiness in life! You both look so happy, so content together! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. Seriously, Derick's arm seems to want space. So not correct! He has his other arm around her and he is turned around to talk to someone. You can make so many things from this and you still would not have a clue. They look very relaxed with each other and in love, let 'em be.

    ReplyDelete
  42. After all they do set their own standards as well, I guess?

    ReplyDelete
  43. They set standards before and there are set standards after of course. We all show love in different ways and I do not believe we should be making assumptions 1) based on ONE picture and 2) if our lives were this narrowly followed I'm pretty sure everyone wil have a lot more personal and degrading things to say about us. These posts are to inspire, encourage and share Gods love and inspiration...not to focus on whether her sitting on him is inappropriate or whether her skirt is too short. The point that we start measuring the skirt by the cm and saying 'oh wow their skirts are immodest now because it's 5cm shorter' then that's when we become legalistic. Embrace the positives that the family has to offer and avoid analysing the family to the minute details.

  44. Good to see the happy couple back home save. God bless there family.

  45. There are going to be some beautiful grandbabies!! :) :) :) :)

  47. they look sooo happy together. I just got married too. I hope their love last forever. its cute how they can hang all over each other now

  48. I have been watching the Duggar’s since their very first special 10 years ago. I, along with many others, have witnessed the growth of this family and the love they have for one another.
    Having said that, let’s leave the nitpicking and criticizing out. Who cares if knees are shown, or if Jill and Derick are being affectionate towards each other? I am thankful that they share so much of their lives with us and I hope they continue to do so for many more years.
    We don’t know if any of them read our posts, but what if they do? Maybe, because of the few that think the Duggar’s aren’t living their lives the way some bloggers feel they should, they stop sharing altogether.
    Let’s just wish them well and thank the ladies that run this site for keeping us up to date.

    1. Amen !! Judge not lest ur be judged. Who of us wants our every move watched and every small thing we do criticized ! Great blessings on the whole family ! I love them all !!

  49. So happy for them. They are clearly a match made in heaven ;) I think newlyweds are often a bit close for a little while, we courted a year, engaged 6 months. I'm not comfortable really with public displays of affection but after we were married we hugged and held hands and say in far too small chairs together. I think its a normal transition. And as for how he's sitting he's got his other arm around her and he's just turning to the camera. I think its good Jessa isn't jumping into a marriage, I can see her courting much longer , she's younger and seems less driven toward things, this is a huge decision that changes your whole life. I would say they could be engaged... They look pretty close recently ;) you should update and add Derek's bday and update some of the kids pics in your banner. Oh and the skirts thing... I always wonder why people always comment on them, I grew up with pants/ skirts have to be below your fingers... I myself always wear things that go at least past my knee but ... Sometimes my knees show a tiny bit, clothing moves a but here and there. And the girls are growing up... What they believe is becoming their own and they have to make their own decisions... Sometimes they're going to hug someone or a skirt or shirt might not be what you would expect, don't worry so much about it. Modesty isn't a set of rules to count off its a virtue you live... Definitely nice to see them all growing up. I think this really is just the beginning :-D just think of all the darling children yet to come!

  50. @Anonymous

    To anonymous #17....while I agree with you, Jill has always been an affectionate person and I think we can all agree she and Derick are truly meant for each other. I'm sure their PDA will be pointed out to them and they will curb back. They're in the honeymoon stage....ah, to be young and in love! However, Jim Bob and Michelle have always said they believe that telling each other "I love you" and kissing in front of their kids is important to show them how much they love each other and value each other.

    JMO...

  51. Cute picture of the newlyweds!

    ReplyDelete
  52. Annonymous 18 it is not body language it's physics. They are looking back, two people are on a folding chair, if he didn't position himself that way the chair would tip over or collapse.

    I think it's a fine position for them to be in. I doubt they are going to be intimate in public. The true test of self control is being able to comfortable with each other and close like that without crossing the line in a public place like the outdoors. However why did they have to wait to sit like that? And why sit like that in front of others who can only side hug?

  53. Lilly or Ellie, do u know if we will have to wait till the new season to find out where Jill went on her honeymoon, also do u know for sure if the wedding will be next season or a summer special? Thanks 4 every little bit u can share:-):-):-)

    ReplyDelete
  54. I know this is off subject, I was just wondering if we heard if Jill was Dericks first kiss for him, we know he was hers.I think him going to a mainstream university might have been more tempting. I know it's really none of our buisness, i just thought that info might have already been addressed and that I missed it.It doesnt matter anyway, I love them both!:-)

    ReplyDelete
  55. It seems strange to see them sitting together and stuff like that, I was used to there keeping a distance rule in there courtship and engagement!!LOL

    ReplyDelete
  56. Derick and Jill are no longer two but one so they only need one chair now!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Re the comment: (17 today) says ..."though they showed the appropriate reserve during their"...
    I think that is an extreme and dare I add, un-natural, point of view. Derick and Jill are just plain precious and seeing them sitting together is ok. Jill and Derick are now entitled to this public display of unity and affection, it is now right. "You can do that now"... as Michelle would say!

  58. FYI

    Information according to Wikipedia Courtship does not = betrothal, engagement=betrothal

    An engagement or betrothal is a promise to wed, and also the period of time between a marriage proposal and a marriage—which may be lengthy or trivial. During this period, a couple is said to be betrothed, affianced, engaged to be married, or simply engaged.

  59. I've noticed for a weeks now that Jessa never has her left hand in pics. I'm thinking Ben already put a ring on it and they just want to let Jill have her "moment".

    ReplyDelete
  60. How is Derick's mom doing?

  61. Ben and Jessa (?)

  62. People nitpick when they're courting and don't show "enough affection" and then turn around and nitpick when they sit in the same chair?????

    Sigh.

    ReplyDelete
  63. I think it is ridiculous to comment on the affection shown between the newly married couple in the picture! They are both adults & married & now 1 flesh :-) it's not like they're touching intimately in public or passionately kissing! They are sitting together and enjoying the joys of married life :-) are we all forgetting that when this show started they were all minors, now the children are growing up & of adult age. Of course they will make their own judgements & decisions in life based on their christian upbringing but who are we to judge? If 1 of their adult children decide to wear something with short sleeves & deemed immodest by some, that's their decision & if you don't agree, then you don't wear that choice but you live by your convictions & let others live by theirs with their God. Jill is a married adult woman, her decisions are between her, God & her husband!

  64. What darling pictures of these couples! I am happy for them :)

  65. It is obvious now that Jill is on a sure foundation.

  66. In the video where Derick is picking a ring with his mother he looks much more boyish and in this photo he looks more mature.

  67. I would love to see the Duggar girls create a blog where they can give tips to the young ladies where to find modest clothing and get great deals. The girls have a huge female following and I think that it would benefit their fans if they had suggestion for them. They have such a cute style. Our girls need to be young modest girls again. Thank you!

  68. I read that the Duggars, who we all know are not into sports teams, had to have a discussion if it is okay for couples to high five at sports games, since Derick and Ben are into sports games. Isn't that taking things way too far? I mean, high fiving? In front of hundreds or thoustands of people? Just seems way over the top to me. Do they have discussions on what to do if a cashier touches their hand while giving them change? Come on now.

    Hi Anonymous 59,

    The wedding will air on TLC this fall. :)

  71. about when in fall will this air?

    ReplyDelete
  72. I wonder how Michele feels about having the only name in the house starting with an "M".

    Curious if they ever thought of naming one of their offspring with an "M"...

    This family is an amazing family IMO.

    I wonder if there will be a show called "XX Grandchildren & Counting"

    Either way, I will be watching this show & ANY show that includes ANY of the Duggars in the future.

    Keep up the great work Jim & Michele

    :)
