    3. He is my favorite also! They both remind me of Jim Bob and Michelle in a way.

    1. Just wondering as I've never heard this saying before...is it a typical saying in the south?

      Delete
    2. No. It is a typical saying exactly nowhere.

    3. Oh, My Cow....never heard that saying...
      .geesh I thought it was a misprint ‼️

  3. I find it strange that these young couples cannot hold hands until they are engaged, can only side hug and never get to be alone yet are expected to have their first kiss with everyone watching. I think it was Ben and Jessa who pulled a fast one and left the stage without kissing and kept that moment private, the look of shock on Jimbobs face was priceless!

    1. You stated that the young couples cannot hold hands, but I wanted to point out that the children themselves make their own rules for courtships. Yes, their parents have taught them biblical principles, but they can decide themselves how (and even if) they want to apply those teachings. Way back in 2008, when 17 Kids was a new show, they explained all of this. At least 3 of the young adults/older teens were interviewed and they each stated very strongly that their parents did not tell them what to do, and that the whole issue of courtship wasn't forced on them. So this is not a case of young couples trying to sneak a kiss, but the parents standing watch trying to stop them. It's a case of young couples desiring to kiss (or more), but choosing to wait.

    2. There are a lot of people that wait until marriage for their first kiss. It isn’t strange at all. All of the people that I personally know that have waited are excited to share that special moment with their family and friends. No one is judging them on their kissing ability. It is just a sweet time.

    3. Why are you solely targeting Jim Bob?

      Delete
    4. I find it strange, too, especially that they're expected to have their first intimate moment in front of a huge audience. But you have to admit the no contact rule does help keep them pure (hopefully).

    5. I agree. I also find it strange that there is so much fuss on the first kiss. I actually find it distasteful. When my daughter married, the emphasis was not on them kissing but that they, as adults, were starting a life together

    6. Anonymous @ 4:27- I liked your post. I also agree with you; when we married the focus wasn't on our kissing. It was more like the the perfect ending to the ceremony, kind of a sweet "seal the deal" moment. :) We were elated at starting our new life together as a married couple and making a home and life together. Maybe it's just a maturity thing as we were 24 and both had been to college and had real-world work experience and full-time jobs, I don't know. I personally think that first kiss shouldn't be public, but a very private, special, experience.

    7. Some people are saying there are no rules set, but I think it’s important to remember that there are EXPECTATIONS by the family... I mean, come on, the internet explodes when Jinger wears pants. Can you imagine how the family would react if one of the sons/daughters said they were going to kiss before marriage??? It could be argued the children set the rules they “make” so as to not rock the boat at home before tying the knot.

  4. Adorable!!! I love this first kiss tradition in their family. Makes it very special to watch!

  5. My favorite of the husbands is Jeremy, Jinger's husband. He is the most "normal" and will get Jinger out of her staid ways and make her a great wife without the restrictions that she grew up with. He is a man of the world and can open up Jinger to things none of the other men can.

  6. That was a very sweet kiss!

  7. Joy and Austin what a sweet clip :) congrats. As you take this journey together, remember these things: communicate commit and comedy (laughter). Team work is dream work. God is so good! - poppy, Florida

  8. I don't think it's strange. My husband and I were even more conservative. We didn't hug, hold hands or anything until our wedding day. And we were not living with our parents. We had this standard all by ourselves. But we chose not to kiss at our wedding in front of everyone. That would have been awkward.

    1. I take no issue at all with anyone making their own standards or delaying intimacy before marriage. I just think it's weird and sad to make these kids perform their first kiss for a massive audience at their wedding. It practically overshadows the commitment. Good for you for keeping that intimate moment private for just the two of you.

      Delete
    2. May I ask what you were afraid of when it came to holding hands or hugging? Didn't you trust yourselves?

      Delete
    3. 12:56 - Why do you ask what they were afraid of? She didn't even use the word afraid in her post. She said that it was their standard. Having a conviction against something does not equal fear.

  9. I am wondering if TLC is going to repeat Monday's two-hour special of Joy's wedding at some point. I had a church-related event and forgot to tape it, so I missed it! ):

    1. If you log in to the TLC go app with your cable provider it’s there for free.

    2. They need to do something. These piece by piece snippets may do something, but it gets old when you can't see the whole thing. We are being teased and played with. Trying to get all of it is a nightmare.
      It is starting not to be worth it. Just play the whole two hour thing and be done with it.

    3. Download TLC go app it's on there 😊

    6. Please renew this show. If any show should be cut is Jazz, some of the others. Who wants to watch Jazz and my 600 lbs life both are discussing.

      Delete
    7. Anon @ 7:53. Lots of people want to watch Jazz it gets better ratings than counting on. If you don't like it don't watch it. TLC caters to lots of different tastes, my personal faves are little people big world, outdaughtered and the little couple, I don't watch the stuff I'm not interested in.

  10. Why does TLC refuse to advertise the show or have repeats?

    ReplyDelete
  11. 9:45 I agree. I am tired of watching snippets. I missed the two hour special as well. I also pay for cable, but guess what? TLC archived shows are not available. I would like to see the whole thing. Sound bites just don't cut it.

  12. I love it when the pastor said oh am I forgetting something!!! Lol!

  13. Why do women even need names... after your parents take carfull time picking out a good one you lose it at your wedding... why? I find this practice so disrespectfull.

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. What? Her parents picked the name Joy Anna and that's still her name. Most women (even progressive ones) expect their last name to change after they marry and are fine with that, in order to share the same name as their husband and children. I don't see the big deal.

      Delete
    2. So then don't change your name! It's tradition for the woman to take the man's name, and it's also practical for the entire family to have the same last name.

      Delete
    3. That was so funny! Are you saying that her parents carefully pick her last name, which is the only thing that changes when she gets married? Her first name stayed the same.

      Delete
    4. I think the pp is talking about when they were introduced as Mr and Mrs Austin Martin Forsythe. It's like Joy doesn't get s mention. She's now called mrs Austin Martin forsythe.
      I agree... hate that practice.

      Delete
    5. I've beem married almost 16 years and have never heard myself referred to as "Mrs. Husband's Name." I don't think it's disrespectful to do that, but I think it's an old-fashioned custom that has outlived its time (and I'm a pretty conservative, old-fashioned kind of person).

      Delete
    6. I agree, I think Anon 7:01 AM means that Joy lost her FIRST name with the introduction Mr and Mrs Austin Martyn Forsythe

      Delete
    7. I think this is a matter of personal preference. Perhaps Joy is happy to occasionally be known by her husband's full name. It's not something I encounter very often, but I kind of like it in certain situations.

  14. Please renew this show and have a regular season. 6 episodes is not a season. So much to see.....

  15. Why do they all run out of the church? After they've been presented as husband and wife I find that kind of.....odd? I actually remember Jeramy telling Jinger to slow down on their wedding when she tried to go faster. I just don't get it, why the rush? Why the running?

    1. Anonymous @ 10:42- I'm with you. I don't get the run up the aisle either. Walking up the aisle as husband and wife is very beautiful moment to be savored and also to acknowledge your guests with a smile and nods as you go. For a family that has repeatedly proclaimed how they instill manners and hospitality into their children, these weddings and receptions say just the opposite.

      Delete
    2. It's been said that they take a few minutes in private. Before retuning to take pictures, or whatever is next at the wedding. Jill, and Derick where the 1st to do it.

      Delete
    3. Oh, good grief, it's not mandatory to just walk up the aisle. I think it is totally fine if that's what you want to do. People things differently, you know. There is more than one way to do things.

      Delete
    4. Probably because they've been holding back for so long, they can't wait to be alone and make out.

      Delete
    5. I'm all for them doing whatever they want at their wedding, but the running up the aisle is the one thing I really don't get. I think it looks silly.

      Delete
    6. I agree with 10:42. Jeremy has brought a lot of class to Jinger. Do you notice she doesn't use the "y'all" phrase anymore and speaks more elegantly as well. She married well.

      Delete
    7. I also don't understand the running out of the church. I just wanted to soak that all in at my wedding and not rush away from the guests. And, yes, I agree that Jeremy has the most class of the sons-in-law. I noticed at Joy's dress fitting that there was a different presence about Jinger in how she carried herself and how she spoke. She seemed more polished. I'm so happy for her in her life with Jeremy away from daily Duggar life!

  16. There is only ONE WAY to do things IN A CHURCH...respectfully. One doesn't run from the Lord out of His house.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Run from the Lord? That's a pretty strong accusation! You can say that you don't like for them to run out of the church, because that's your opinion. But you don't have enough knowledge to make the statement you did.

      Delete
    2. So, I have yet to see anyone in the duggar family or any of their friends explain- why do the Duggars run out of the Church once they're wed? I'd really like to know the reasoning. I'm not looking for *ahem-sly answers*. I really do want to know why they do this and where/when did this become their practice.

      Delete
    3. I really don't think there was anything wrong with running up the aisle. There is nothing irreverent with running. Yes it is the Lord's House, and we so need to be respectful of it, but running up the aisle is not irreverent. That's like saying we can't laugh when the pastor makes a funny joke during his sermons(and ,yes, there is nothing wrong with that either).
