    I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that this indeed happens.

    The kid isn't even an adult yet.
    I bet it's because he will be easier to control by JimBoob.

    So Jim Boob thinks! I'm thinking that one of the Duggar girls is going to end up with some boy who figures out he's trapped in a monotonous world of baby churning and scripture and he will completely break bad. What are his alternatives in Arkansas, with a fundie education and no experience? Meth? Gambling? Taking young girls behind the pulpit when his Duggar wife's body collapses from yearly pregnancies?

    18???? The kid isn't even old enough to decide if The Lord is his true calling. It's been programmed into him and the inevitable backlash will be even worse if Jessa and brood are involved.

    (like Josh, their overweight first son, you can't tell me that fellow isn't a major subscriber to online porn.)

    God these people are idiots.

    A former quiverfull blogger had just such an experience. She couldn't even go to the bathroom without her "buddy". It was ridiculously restrictive: Razing Ruth

    Fuck, I guess if there's even the smallest opportunity to vacate that house, I'd probably take it too. Eighteen-year-old guy with zits! Yum - gimme a side hug, you luscious hunk of sermon-inducing bullshit. Yep.

    Exactly. She'll marry his ass as fast as she can. It gets her out of that house, away from raising her mother's children, and it gets her laid.

    I met a girl in college when I was studying abroad who was Mennonite (I think that's what it was). A guy she met once went to the church leader, asked for her hand, then the elder went to the parents, the parents agreed, presented it to her and she had to pray about it to see if it was right (it was something like that). Apparently, God said it was a good match and she got married when she returned. This was a looooong time ago -- no cell phones, no email. All this happened via letters. They didn't know each other at all. The contradiction between her being in college, getting to study abroad, but then having this major decision basically made for her was really interesting, but totally freaked me out. Her faith was so strong. I can't even imagine being in a situation like that.

    A quick 30 second or less side hug? Does a little buddy time it? Can they save unused time for another side hug?

    This courtship is probably more about providing a storyline to keep the show going than Jim-Boob & Jichelle really allowing any of their off$pring to become adults.

    SIX of the "kids" still living at home are now adults. That's 33% LOL! I wonder if they know they can leave without permission? Or even send texts without permission?

    So I don't care enough to look it up, but was this the same way that closet case Josh had his courtship & marriage---i.e., Jim Bob & Michelle basically picking out that Anna chick and being all up in their faces every second? Or is there yet another double fucking standard?

    I wish Jim Bob would catch them cracking behind the house. That would make my day. And if she released a back door teen mom tape a la Farrah, she would be my new hero.

    When the only "fun" these fundies are allowed to have is sex with a spouse, and judging by Ma and Pa Dugger there's a LOT of that, I guess it makes sense to marry young. It seems weird to us but I'm sure many of our grandparents were hopelessly inexperienced virgins on their wedding night. They did OK but I'm glad I didn't have to marry any guy I wanted to fuck.

    Honestly, I think the only reason that they let Jessa start courting, is get another season of their show. Oh, and they need to keep up with the Bates family.
