Silver Dollar City

This week, the Duggars made the two-hour trek to Branson Missouri's Silver Dollar City, one of their favorite places to visit. Marjorie Jackson and her family also went along. Josiah and Marjorie have been courting since April 6th.

  4. I personally don't care a bit what Marjorie wears but I wonder why she didn't wear a dress on the trip out of respect for the Duggars.

    1. Because contrary to what most people assume, (not necessarily you, just people in general), the Duggars choose to wear skirts/dresses for them, but they have repeatedly said in interviews that they have no issue or judgement with people choosing differently for their own families.

    2. Amy duggar wears pants around them... I think it's fantastic that she beats the rhythm of her own drum

    3. Marjorie is her own person. Why are her wardrobe choices any less deserving of respect than the Duggars? She was out with her own family.

      Delete
    4. Positive proof that the Duggars accept everyone's differences.Wearing pants by no means is disrespectful of the family...remember that is their own family rules they don't expect everyone else to conform.

    5. The moment you have to water your true self down to please someone else, you should reevaluate that relationship. If she were asked to wear a dress, this would be disrespectful and shallow. I'm glad she dressed as she pleased. It shows she has an open mind and is not fake.

  5. What does the family think about Josiah's friend Marjorie, wearing pants without a skirt over them?

  8. So Marjorie was wearing pants I noticed. Good for her. I don't think there is anything wrong with a girl or a woman wearing pants. I also don't see anything wrong or sinful about dancing. If it's joyful then I say go for it.

  9. She's wearing jeans -- love it!

    1. Real men wear pink. Have you ever heard the expression that a man who is confident with their manhood wears pink? Josiah is even cooler in my book :-)

  22. Find it odd the a Duggar courts a girl in JEANS.....however she's cute and ain't nothing wrong with that !!

    ReplyDelete
  23. She WEARS PANTS!! Go Marjorie! I am so happy that she is staying true to herself because one of the Bates boys married a girls and she started to wear skirts all the time. Girls can still be completely modest and feminine in pants! I totally support being modest, but I think the whole have to wear skirts ALL THE TIME thing is just silly and almost makes things become an issue that don't have to be--it is just an ATI rule that the Duggars follow. Yeah for Marjorie! I think it is great to see how the kids meeting and courting great people has opened up their eyes!!

  24. Marjorie wears pants. SHOCKING!

  27. Hello The duggar family . I just wanted to say that i really love you family. I follow your tv show from sweden. And i where really happy when i found out that jill and Derek have a baby boy. I have 4 kids and their names startes with M. Hugs and kisses from a family from sweden.

  28. Yeah, Marjorie! I see jeans! Skinny jeans! The Duggars may be moving into this century after all! You go, girl!

  29. 'Courting'. That word seems a bit unappropriate for two happy teenagers - they look so young in that pictures. And great:) It's refreshing to see a girl wearing jeans - go, Mariorje!

  30. I am so surprised that Marjorie doesn't wear only skirts! Reinforces my respect for this family for accepting and encouraging this courtship.

  31. Must the constantly pose with weapons? Even play ones. You can be a Christian and never touch one.

    ReplyDelete
  32. The Duggars have said they think panta on girls are fine they just feel conflicted about pants themselves. So why is everyone so surprised?

    ReplyDelete
  33. I'm surprised at the comments in regards to Marjorie wearing pants. The Bible talks about modesty, it doesn't specify that women must wear skirts and dresses. Besides, Amy Duggar has worn pants ever since I can remember. Marjorie and Josiah are a precious couple! As long as they dress modestly, what does it matter if she wears pants or Josiah wears pink (or any other color)? They're such an inspiration and Godly example! God bless all of them!

    ReplyDelete
  34. If things continue like this, soon there will be no duggar girls on skirts.

  36. Come on people-I am appalled at the comments such as she should have worn a skirt out of respect for the Duggars and Goethe Duugars accepted someone who wears pants. They are PANTS- don't judge someone by the exterior and respect isn't measured by her clothing. Let her be, I can just see the next few
    Months will be all about the dreaded pants and not the really unique talented twosome. Let whoever is without sin cast the first stone!

  38. My mom and I are big fans and will be in the area this weekend. We're hoping to visit some of the Duggar's favorite thrift stores or flea markets. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

  39. Why are people surprised that she's wearing pants, when we've all seen the Duggar girls in tight tops? I say go, Marjorie, go!

    ReplyDelete
  40. It's great to see the duggars aren't so caught up on all girls wearing skirts

    ReplyDelete
  41. @daisy22---I'm certain Josiah loves Marjorie in skinny jeans! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I look at it this way, the " pants preoccupation" must be a church doctrine thing, because most people are not phased by a girl or woman wearing jeans, pants, capris etc. There are millions of people who watch the show each week and they couldn't care less if the girls do or don't wear pants. They are always dressed modestly and that is the important thing. So much judging going on here.....Looks like they had a great time at Silver Dollar City. Love the Duggars, all 27 of them!

    ReplyDelete
  43. I'm sure Josiah and family knew she wore pants. Can't we just love people for who they are. I'm proud she is being real.

    ReplyDelete
  44. GO MARJORIE!!!!! So happy to see she's wearing pants! My new favourite.

    ReplyDelete
  45. The Duggars have ALWAYS said "This is how WE choose to live our life". They have NEVER condemned anyone for choosing to wear pants. They have had women visit them wearing pants and treated them with respect. When the family visited Dolly Parton, there was no comment about how she dresses, just that Michelle and Jim Bob wanted the family to meet her because she had a big singing voice and a big heart for charity.

    ReplyDelete
  46. People need to lay off about being surprosed about Marjorie and wearing pants. Its a personal choice for the Duggars and they have many female friends and family thst wear pants. It doesn't mean they're any less 'devout'. I'm not even Christian and I respect what the Duggars are and what they choose to believe. Judge not lest ye be judged....

    ReplyDelete
  47. Contrary to popular belief, the Duggars have said repeatedly in interviews and in their books that they have no issue or judgement with other families choosing to allow their girls to wear pants, shorts, etc. They have said over and over again that it's something they have chosen for their family based on their own personal convictions and that they understand it's not for everyone.

    ReplyDelete
  48. I don't care what Marjorie or Josiah wear, but it makes me sad to see them courting at their young ages. Why can't they wait a couple of years to get that serious?

    ReplyDelete
  49. Amy Duggar isn't full on modest either, why is everyone going crazy over Marjorie wearing jeans I'm pretty sure Michelle has no problem with that if Amy can be around wearing above knee dresses

    ReplyDelete
  50. Why is everyone talking about Marjorie wearing pants? Their cousin Amy has always been wearing pants.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Josiah and Marjorie looks so cute together! Glad to see Marjorie wearing pants and not skirt! I don't see no wrong in a girl wearing blue jeans! I think the Duggar oldest girls should be able to choose if they want to keep wearing skirts or wear jeans! I hope to see one of the Duggar girls wear pants !!!! .

    ReplyDelete
  52. The Duggars love her for who she is! She is modest and respectful. I have so much respect for this young girl!! Pants, skirts who cares as long as she respects her body which she does!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Love the pictures. I look forward to hearing more about Josiah and Marjorie's relationship.

    ReplyDelete
  54. I was happy to see Ben wearing long shorts. I think the male Duggars should be allowed to wear long shorts like Ben. If the females can show skin below the knee, why can't the males? I think loose fitting pants/capris that have a high enough waist should be allowed, just not tight fitting. Examples: Joy rock climbing in a skirt tucked in looking like a baggy diaper, boys running a marathon in long jeans, slip-in-slide in long pants/skirts.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Amy Duggar sometimes wears blue jeans. But wow Marjorie wears skinny jeans!

    ReplyDelete
  56. The Duggars have often said skirts only is a personal conviction, not something they push on others. Also Cousin Amy often wore pants or shorter skirts and they hang out with her often. The Duggars are not as judgemental as people think they are. They love people as they are.

    ReplyDelete
  57. It is sad to see the post on here cheering on about her wearing pants, you are one ones that don't get it, and you think more about wearing and doing what pleases you, there is so much more to it, and it's really sad that you can see it. I will be praying for all of you. As far has Marjorie she will only have to answer to God, not you or me, but for the ones that think it is so great and cheering her on. you to will answer for that. Look at how many make fun of her in one of the pictures she was in, wearing a skirt, really......... somebody has got to always say something don't you. It one thing to be surprised, but to encourage it or cut it down, is that Christ like?

  64. The main criteria for a Christian to use when choosing a mate should be: Is the potential mate a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ and have they repented of their sins? The wearing of pants falls into the category of personal preference IMHO.

  67. it is not wrong to were jeans or trousers they can be smart and modest, its what you make of there life that matters ,I am sure they have good morals with the help of wonderful families

  68. Remember fellow Readers Marjorie isn't a Duggar yet - she wasn't brought up by the same strict rules but still has the same faith in Jesus and Remember Michelle's best friend since little kid school wears skinny jeans and she is very welcome in their house old. It isn't what you wear it is what is in the heart. I am sure that this is what the kids are taught to look for first in a potential life partner. Those other outward things aren't the be all and end all But given the size of the Duggar family there had to be some rules/ boundries for every one to follow or else there would be anarchy. T/v would be another one as with that many kids how do you as and adult supervise that many kids watching todays programs on tv ? I don't blame the Duggar parents for setting boundries and rules for all to follow but as with all families not all will keep every rule as their own when they move on. That's just part of life. And in anycase Good for Marjorie for being secure enough in herself not to change her outward appearance just because every one else does it. Maybe this is what attracted Josiah to Marjorie - her strong confident personality that shines from the inside out.

  69. @Jenn Armstrong I agree! I didn't even think about the fact that there was something different until everyone commented on it. I think it's silly to make such a big deal out of a very insignificant thing. I bet the Duggars think so too.

    ReplyDelete
  70. It's funny. All I saw was a family enjoying their time together, allowing their two children who are courting to spend fun times together. UntinIbread the comments, I never even noticed she was wearing jeans.

    What a bunch of judgmental people!

  71. There is nothing wrong with girls wearing pants when the wind blows nothing shows. Derrick's Mom wears pants incase you haven't noticed and she is a lovely lady.

  72. Lilly & Ellie, Please have the Duggars comment on Marjorie's pants!

    I wore pants for years, however, the Duggars have strong convictions about their girls wearing only skirts/dresses I too am shocked to see tight pants on her!

    Side note: Since I started wearing only skirts/dresses a year ago, I have definitely been treated better by men and people usually ask me what my "religion" is. It gives me a chance to share Jesus. BTW I'm Baptist!

  81. Girls can wear pants too. They are not just for boys. Just because the Duggar's don't wear pants does not mean the Marjorie can't she is not a Duggar yet she is only courting Josiah. He likes her for who she is not because she wears dresses all the time. Why does it matter if Josiah wears pink. He is who he is there is nothing saying that he can not wear pink.

    ReplyDelete
  82. Seriously people!! Let the Duggar's live their OWN lives!! What's the big deal about Marjorie wearing jean's? Sure, you might not think that it's right, but if the Duggar's are okay with it, then let her wear jeans, for goodness sake!!!!!! If they're not okay with it, I think they would say so and I don't think Marjorie would!! All of you people need to back off!!!!

  83. I know a famliy that is way more modest. They are like the amish. The wemon wear skrits and head coverings and to swim shrits and skrits too. The men grow their beard, where no shorts they just wear pants to swim in too. They only eat organic food. They drive an hour to trader joes and earth fare to get their food. And they worship in a different way. But I admit I thought a boy in the church was cute. So we have been going to their church and its not that bad ,but some of their teachings I don't like. Me and the boy were never ment to be. So that's my story of a church that I don't belong in , but I understand where they are coming from. If that makes since. Thank y'all for your time. Please don't judge people for who they are.

  84. WOW. I mean I thought Marjorie wore jeans. But I am glad the duggar family is so accepting, they are an amazing and loving family I am sure. I love what I have seen so far of Marjorie and LOVE LOVE LOVE Josiah and her's relationnship.

  85. I just wonder why people think that skirts make a woman a better Christian. If Marjorie loves the Lord and loves Josiah and it's the Lord's will for them to marry, they should.

  93. This is refeshing to see someone like Marjorie wearing a skinny jeans. I find not totally appropriate from the Duggar when they talk about wearing skirt in order to stay modest, but stay in well renovated & equiped house, drive good & often big cars etc... All that are modest? I believe in God & am family person ... Despite enjoying dancing with my brother & wearing jeans, I do not feel my clothing & attituds are provocative & misrespect my spriritual belief. Many thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  94. If they are in a courtship then chances are that he is ok with it. The family approves of her, so it is ok with them. The duggars feel led to wear skirts. They do not look down on those who do not wear skirts only. The duggar kids are free to make their own decisions.

  96. As long as my boys live in my house they will not wear pink. Some things are too girlie and IMO pink is that. I roll my eyes at the excuses of being stereotyped etc.... Pink just looks to feminine for a guy. And if my boys asked to wear it (which they wouldn't) I'd say put a bow in your hair too. Haha AGAIN, my opinion.

  105. Goodness! And we as Christians wonder why the world has issue with us. All of the squabble about dresses versus pants or pink versus no pink has absolutely nothing to do with what is truly important. It has nothing to do with Scripture. The important thing is that people are sinners who need a Savior and Jesus is offering us the gift if salvation. All of the rest is noise and distraction. And for the record, last time I checked, God was the One Who created pink, and I didnt see Him put a restriction on it.

    ReplyDelete
  106. Marjorie is one of the few women....few female body types that can pull off skinny jeans without looking like she's trying to be lewd. Her jeans are as skinny as Josiah's. By the way, I agree about him not wearing pink. He's grown up in the last couple years....not as hasn't anymore, I think. But the color does him no favors! Just Sayin' :)

  107. Ha...love the comment that it is more unusual to see someone in a dress than pants, but you would not know it from this forum.

  108. I don't find any remarks in the bible about girls wearing pants, so go for it. There are some remarks (that you could read) to wear no jewellry, but the duggar girls have no problem with that. Even one by one got their ears pierced (I think Jill was the first in 2013). Lately even Michelle seems to have her ears pierced. I wonder when that change happened.

  111. What a great family outing...I love the way the Duggars promote loving God and loving their family, I have started stressing that with our four kids..I also love the way Josiah and Marjorie get to know one another amongst family. My oldest daughter admires the dating with a purpose that is depicted on this show and has chosen to do that as well. She's never dated and she wants to save her heart for the one God has for her. She see's the Duggar and Bates girls doing that and is committed to doing the same..This show is such a blessing!

  112. I am surprised this post is causing cheers for Marjorie wearing pants and arguments for why it is okay for women to wear pants. The only concern I have is not that a girl is wearing pants, but that the Duggar family has been very clear about their convictions and I wonder if they are beginning to change from once held beliefs.

    Wow. There is absolutely nothing wrong with a guy wearing pink. Until recently, men and boys regularly wore pink.

    For example, a June 1918 article from the trade publication Earnshaw's Infants' Department said, “The generally accepted rule is pink for the boys, and blue for the girls. The reason is that pink, being a more decided and stronger color, is more suitable for the boy, while blue, which is more delicate and dainty, is prettier for the girl.” Other sources said blue was flattering for blonds, pink for brunettes; or blue was for blue-eyed babies, pink for brown-eyed babies, according to Paoletti.

    In 1927, Time magazine printed a chart showing sex-appropriate colors for girls and boys according to leading U.S. stores. In Boston, Filene’s told parents to dress boys in pink. So did Best & Co. in New York City, Halle’s in Cleveland and Marshall Field in Chicago.

    This is a personal thing however the Bible says that woman should not wear man's clothing, there is not such an excuse as 'but there are womens pants', years ago it was not like that, everyone wore dresses, does God's plan changes with the ages? NO! People change. It is no longer cool in the eyes of the World if you wear long skirts, no make up and look different, that is how Christian women should look like people! And remember that if you dress in a way that a man looks at you with a desire, and it is because of you dressing like that, you will be responsible for commiting adultery with that man in the day of Judgement!

  117. I've seen the Duggar women in ski pants, and Cousin Amy wears jeans. Do they wear jeans at home, when the cameras aren't rolling? I'm more concerned about how young Josiah is to be courting (settling in on one girl), rather than if his girlfriend likes jeans. P.S. I am a "Born Again" believer in Jesus Christ. Ben, I hope you will continue your education.

  120. @Anonymous 146 -- The Bible is talking about a man impersonating a woman and vice versa. That is entirely different than a woman wearing jeans, for instance. Respectully, if you think a man wearing a kilt or a woman wearing her husband's flannel shirt with a pair of jeans is against the Bible, then you do not understand the Bible. Yes, women are warned not to dress provocatively, but God warns that adding or taking away from the Bible is wrong.

  121. Why does everyone think Marjorie would have to change herself to be with Josiah? That's not what they want. They want what God has in store for them and the rest of the family.
