11th Duggar Wedding

The Duggars are gearing up for their 11th wedding. Jeremiah Duggar announced his relationship with Hannah Wissmann in October and revealed his engagement at the beginning of January. And now there's only a month to go until Jer and Hannah tie the knot. Their wedding is on March 26th.

  2. I hope they were chaperoned in that house they were painting.

    1. Why? They are adults and don't need chaperones.

    2. We don't know their courtship rules. They all have different ones so don't assume or worry about a relationship that's not yours.

    3. Guess you never watched the show. #3:52

    4. we all know they have to have chaperones regardless of their age if they are with someone of the opposite sex

    5. I hope you are being sarcastic.

      Delete
    6. Maybe they chose not to have chaperones? Each couple sets their own boundaries. Now that this is the eleventh wedding, I definitely think it has calmed down with so many strict rules.

      Delete
    7. Why should the rules "calm down" or be changed now? If your convictions say someone keeps you responsible until marriage, why would that change? Unless what you told us about your convictions wasn't really what you followed...

      Delete
    8. Jessa said they choose their rules set for them. So if they was being controlled all their courtships would be the same. We don't know what they set for themselves and it's really none of nobodies business.

      Delete
    9. Each couple choose the rules for courtship and engagement. Their parents make suggestions; however it is left up to each couple. It has ALWAYS been that way with the Duggars.

      Delete
    10. @9:04 Why can't they change? Convictions may evolve over time, especially as we grow up and mature. It is not at all unusual for young people to move away from or modify the religious views their parents have once they become adults. Also, the Duggar children are not necessarily marrying into families that adhere to IBLP doctrine- Derick Dillard and Jeremy Vuolo, for instance. I have respect for anyone who can think for themselves and discard previously held ideas they have come to find wrong or unimportant.

      Delete
    11. @9:04 People can and do change their opinions or convictions when presented with new information.

      Delete
    12. @8:47 I'd like to see examples of the Duggars changing their opinions and convictions. I mean truly, not just for the camera.

      Delete
    13. See this is how you can tell who's not a Duggar fan on a fan blog. You missed an episode. Jessa said they set courtship rules for themselves. Everyone's convictions are different. I don't think you understand how any of that works. For example: One couple may decide kissing during courtship is fine. But the other couple decides against it because it may lead to something else. You can also apply that to people who drink or decide not to drink. You have to search your heart with God and figure out whats best for you. What is best for you is not what is best for EVERYONE.

      Delete
    14. 10:03 The Dillards, for instance. They send their eldest to public school, Jill has a nose piercing and wears pants. They've also spoken out about their rift with JimBob and Michelle.

      Delete
    15. Let's see.... prospective mates courting a Duggar daughter are required to fill out a pages-long questionnaire for Jim Bob to scrutinize and approve. Somehow I don't see a controlling individual like him allowing his kids to set their own courtship rules. On the episodes I watched, they made a huge deal about no kissing or frontal embracing, only side hugs. There may be some wriggle room with hand holding, but I have no doubt that JimBob sets the limits.

      Delete
    16. They may choose their own courtship rules, but who makes sure they are choosing the wisest ones in relation to their values? Aren't the parents still involved in that? Plus now that the show is over, are they still trying to uphold an image?

      Delete
    17. 4:33 AM - I never heard of that unless you have inside info. You come to a Duggar FAN blog you better have receipts.

      Delete
    18. That questionnaire thing was an exaggerated, tongue-in-cheek sort of comment that some people took literally.

      Delete
    19. @ 2:21 PM- "Come to a Duggar FAN blog and you better have receipts"? LOL Not sure how you missed this frequently discussed topic, but you'll find it on TLC's YouTube channel (or just YouTube's search bar) titled "Want to Marry My Daughter? Fill Out This Questionnaire" | Counting On Nov.2, 2016. You'll find Ben & Jessa, Jill & Derick, and Jeremy and Jinger freely discussing it. Jeremy did an interview with US Weekly discussing it too (https://www.usmagazine.com/celebrity-news/news/jeremy-vuolo-needed-intense-approval-from-jinger-duggars-dad/). You'll find it referenced on this blog itself "Jim Bob's 50-page Questionnaire" on October 25, 2016. On a Today show interview and in the girls' book Growing Up Duggar, "The Duggars' 7 Rules of Courtship" Rule 6: "To Court A Duggar Girl, You Have To Go Through Dad" (https://www.today.com/parents/duggars-7-rules-courtship-love-air-no-kissing-2D79464674

    3. 11:02 Actually, the IBLP/ATI organization has been losing money and membership the past few years. People are wising up.

    4. Abbi came from a family that was much different than them actually and so was Derick.

      Delete
    5. That's an odd comment. Not every single Duggar has married into a family identical to theirs.

      Delete
    6. 11:36 - Abbie’s family is not much different. They are also involved with the IBLP.

      Delete
    7. Jeremy came from a different background also

      Delete
    8. Um, majority of the Duggar's did not marry into a IBLP. Sure, they may seem like it but their churches they attended are not like that.

  10. Congrats Jeremiah and Hannah! I am so happy for them. I know there will be not so nice comments as there usually is when a Duggar gets engaged because they do things differently than other people. I love seeing people be upset about PEOPLE and THINGS they can't control :) They forget humans don't come with puppet strings. My parents disapproved of me marrying young and I been married for almost 21 years to my best friend. June of 2001, I had just graduated from high school and was married at 18. I went on to college with my new hubby. I never regretted anything.

    3. 9:49 PM - It doesn't matter the age, like if they was 18. That's not for anyone to judge including family. And before anyone says well they put their lives out there, well so does most people these days. No matter what, it's not for us to judge. Getting married super young is actually making a comeback. I wish all young couples the best.

    4. Anonymous @ 6:37- Not to be offensive but it seems like there's one poster making numerous comments on all the recent articles here, accusing dissenting posters of disliking the Duggars because "they can't control them". If this is you, could you please give it a rest? It's getting kind of old and you have no facts or concrete examples to back that accusation up. I get that you're a ride-or-die Duggar fan, but the truth is that they're imperfect and they're going not only going to make mistakes, they're going to intentionally choose to sin from time to time because like all humans, they want to in the moment. Thank you.

    5. @11:38 Getting married super young is NOT making a comeback, at least not in my country and in any country with a high educational level. The average age of a first time bride is now 28 here and that age is increasing. Couples are in no hurry; they also wait a few years after marriage to start a family. Personally, I do not care at whatever age a couple gets married. However, all of the couples I know who married before age 25 (and I am in my 70s) are either no longer together or are miserable. The only thing they had in common were the kids. Fortunately, my children, nieces and nephews learned by example. They all waited to get married till their late 20s/30s, till after they had established themselves.

      Delete
    6. I was married at 18 and we went to college together. You see a lot of young couples getting married either the same age I was many years ago or much later. It doesn't have to do with high educational level because I seen many high educated people forget about birth control lol.

      Delete
    7. @11:38 getting married super young is not making a comeback. I suggest that you Google it. If anything the first time bride and groom are getting older.

    8. 9:17 AM - All you have to do is Google weddings and newspapers in every state, there are a lot of young couples. Add that % up and you'd be surprised.

    3. It has been working for the other Duggar couples🤷‍♀️

      Delete
    4. It's too soon for the other couples to realize they may be in for a lifetime of regrets or having to convince themselves that everything's great when it's not. That takes tons of mental energy. It's one reason people get divorced.

      Delete
    5. Every couple is different. Everyone is got married fast or young or both doesn't always have regrets. People seriously need to stop.

      Delete
    6. Very easily. I met a guy, we spent three months being platonic (we were secular at the time), three months dating, he proposed marriage and a year later we got married. I didn't become a Christian until 1997, two years after we got married and he became a Christian 2004, a couple of years after we became parents. Plenty of people don't goof around delaying getting married. Life is short, you only live once, seize the day, do what you believe is best for you instead of how They Say You MUST Live Life!

      Delete
    7. @2d:47 People divorce because it's an option to quit a marriage. Staying married is an act of the will. You won't always like it, but you chose them, and now you honor your choice.

      In my circle of friends, people meet and marry in under a year. My friends are all going on 15-25 years married. Not one divorce. Not because their marriages are easy but because of the vows made.

      Delete
    8. 7:31 I'd say things have not worked out so well for Josh and Anna. It's clear Anna made a huge mistake in marrying him. She was far too young and naive. Anyway, we have no way of knowing for certain what has or has not been working for the other Duggar couples. You can bet if there are problems, they won't be advertising it.

      Delete
    9. @4:59 That sounds absolutely miserable, having to stay married as an act of will. That could ruin your life if you stayed with someone who was abusive. Lots of people can act one way for a short time while dating but then the "real" person comes out later when married, and sometimes it's horrific. No spouse should have to put up with that out of "honor."

      Delete
    10. 6:44 AM - Also the couples have stated that they do fight. No, they don't show it just like most reality stars don't show or even show the FULL extent of couples fighting.

      Delete
    11. @Diana You would take away divorce as an option for women? What if they're being abused? No amount of "honor" is going to change that. No old vow is going to change that.

      Delete
    12. @6:44 Things did not work out well for Anna at all. Josh probably felt more empowered to do what he did because he knew Anna wasn't going to take the house and the kids and tell him to leave. That marriage covenant gave him freedom to do what he did and yet still have a wife and kids.

      Delete
    13. @ 4:59- While I'd say many people divorce because quitting the marriage is an option, you can't blanket-statement everyone in in such black-and-white terms as you did (perhaps unintentionally). My SIL is in the process of getting a divorce she does not want, never intended to get, with multiple children involved, and it's very personally devastating to her emotionally, physically, spiritually, financially, and socially. She's a long-time (30+ years) personally committed Christ-follower, who has prayed for that man she loves 30+ years and turned the other cheek to all kinds of emotional and verbal abuse, been lied about by him to others, home schooled all their children faithfully, done her best to meet all of his needs even when it cost her personally, has been an excellent daughter-in-law to her aging in-laws, a source of wisdom and encouragement to other moms and everyone who knows her. Her husband, however, has become increasingly erratic, controlling, and rapidly progressed to dangerously life-threateningly unstable. He's also a manipulative narcissist (no joke), now with multiple restraining orders, who's served several jail stints (all anger-management related) and lost his gun-owning privileges (for a very good reason). She was fully committed to him and their vows. To him, she's a possession, a servant there to do his will. Sometimes it's not about quitting,it's about surviving and surviving to raise your children to adulthood. Sometimes it's about leaving to stop the trauma being inflicted on your children, to give them the safety and security every child needs and deserves.

    14. 8:46 Sorry to hear all that and glad she can safely get out. But in 4:59's scenario, the woman would be at fault too! Maybe at fault, period. Scary. It's a fairy tale to believe all marriages can and must last no matter what.

      Delete
    15. The Bible is clear that abuse and adultery are reasons to divorce. Far too many people quit on a marriage instead of using willpower to work on problems and make it better. There is a difference between quitting and getting out of an abusive situation. Also just because they don’t get into the press, get researched or otherwise get into forms of media doesn’t mean that highly educated people stay in bad situations. If anything, perhaps there is a “cone of silence” regarding highly educated women who choose to stay in bad marriages.

      Delete
    16. 4:45 PM - 100% agree. I was divorced after I was told not to, that it's a sin. But what is a sin is I thought I was marrying someone I thought I knew and they ended up being abusive. He completely fooled me. I was deceived. That is religiously grounds for a divorce.

      Delete
    17. I agree. It's not always an "act of the will" if the marriage is abusive or deeply unhealthy, deeply codependent.

    5. Natasha, I'm sorry that you're so disappointed. I know the Duggar and Bates families have been a large part of your life and growing up years. I know you have many happy memories watching the episodes with your dad and your mom too, and I'm sure you do miss them a lot. I'm sorry. I hope that together with your dad and mom, you can find some very good family-oriented shows to watch to fill in this gap (maybe some older "Classic" family-friendly TV shows your parents might be aware of that). Maybe your parents can find a good Christian book series for you either online at Christian Book Distributors/ Baker Publishing House, at a Christian bookstore, or on Amazon. I know it's not quite the same thing, but I think this might be a good time to start a new tradition with your dad (and your mom too of course). From one Daddy's Girl to another, I'm praying for you my friend. I think your parents are really sweet people too.

  21. I don't know if this will be published, but if so I wonder if anyone can give insight about my question. I have seen and read different articles about the IBLP requiring the oldest daughter to never marry in order to take care of her parents? Does anyone know if this is true or maybe some other religious group?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. That appears to be a made up story. The oldest daughter in OTHER IBLP families have married. For example the Bates oldest daughter is married, Lauren Swanson Duggar is the oldest daughter in her family, Kendra is oldest daughter in the Caldwell family and is married to Josiah. Those are just a few examples that I'm aware of.

      Delete
    2. I was in ATI. Was active in ministries with them. Never heard of the eldest not marrying.

      Delete
    3. I don't believe that's true at all, I think it's a rumor. Seth and Karen Alexander's oldest daughter got married, and they are in the IBLP too.

      Delete
    4. I never heard of that in IBLP. That was likely rumored to justify why Jana hasn't married.

      Delete
    5. It’s not true. What is true is that once a woman gets to be a certain age and is still single, some people attempt to rationalize it and search for reasons why the woman is single instead of respecting and accepting her choice to have platonic friendships.

      Delete
  22. They look so good together! :-)
