“Courtship is really waiting for the one God has for you and praying through the whole process,” the father of 19 says.
“It’s really examining the person and considering, ‘Would this be the guy I want to be the father of my kids? Rule 2: Three (or four, or 15) is NOT a crowd: There’s always a chaperone.
For two people forbidden to engage in virtually all forms of physical contact, per the Duggar courtship rules, they appear rock solid.
And obedience, and subservience, and intense boundaries that have made the family a beloved freak show for 13 seasons.
It's especially true, he adds, "when you have chaperones like [Jinger’s] brothers and sisters who you want to be around anyway.” Those who watch Counting On online know that Jinger's domineering father, Jim Bob Duggar, has been a human roadblock as well.
The Duggar family patriarch seems to only grudgingly approve of the pastor, or at least he thinks Jinger is moving too fast with him.
As Michelle pointed out, “love is in the air” in the Duggar household this spring.
Rule 1: Courting is not dating; it’s “dating with a purpose.” There are two main distinctions that make dating different than courting, says Jim Bob.
