This Is How Many Of The Duggar Kids Are Actually Married

Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar run a tight ship,
especially when it comes to relationships. The Duggar children never “date,” they “court,”
which Michelle described to People magazine as: “Dating with a purposeful mind set, [which
is] really such a contrast from what we are used to seeing in our world.” “Well we’re officially courting now.” “Yay!” Courting, for Jim Bob, also means: “Getting to know each other in a group setting,
both families spending time together and the couple setting goals together to determine
if they are meant to marry. With dating, a couple will often pair off
alone and that sometimes leads to a more physical relationship.” Because of these beliefs, you can imagine
that there are a whole lot of things a Duggar can’t do before their wedding day, and some
pretty strict rules to follow. A Duggar who is courting, or being courted,
is hardly ever alone. Chaperones are required, and only side hugs
are allowed; but after the engagement, hand holding is allowed. The Duggars are allowed to kiss for the first
time on their wedding day, and are free to let go and enjoy physical intimacy on their
wedding night and after that. In fact, Jill Duggar Dillard has been surprisingly
outspoken on intimacy after the wedding and beyond. In a June 2019 blog post, she encouraged married
couples to have intercourse three to four times per week, as a starting point, and says, “Be open with your spouse about your desires
and change things up to keep it exciting!” Because of all these rules that apply before
marriage, it’s not too surprising that the Duggar kids tend to tie the knot on the younger
side. But how many of them have actually walked
down the aisle? Well, there are nineteen Duggars, and according
to Cheat Sheet, eight of them are married. Oldest son Josh Duggar and Anna Keller were
the first to tie the knot in September 2008, and as of early 2020 they are still together
with six young children. John David may officially be second born,
or third born, considering he’s a twin to the unmarried Jana, but he’s the most recent
Duggar to tie the knot. He married Abbie Burnett in November 2018
and the couple had their first child, a girl, in January 2020. Derick and Jill Dillard, who married in June
2014 and have two sons together, starred in the spin-off show Counting On. However, according to Entertainment Tonight,
they were forced to leave the show after Derick made offensive remarks and major backlash
ensued. Jessa and Ben Seewald met at church, and while
Jessa was drawn to Ben, Cheat Sheet reports that she was afraid he wouldn’t feel the same
way because she’s two-and-a-half years older than him. That obviously wasn’t a problem for Seewald,
because the two have been married since November 2014, and together they have two boys and
one girl. Ben Seewald is the catalyst for one more Duggar
marriage, he introduced sister-in-law Jinger Duggar to former soccer star Jeremy Vuolo. They tied the knot in November 2016 after
just one month of courting. Because Jinger and Jeremy didn’t have children
until two years after their wedding, fans speculated there were either fertility problems
or birth control was involved. Josiah Duggar and Lauren Swanson also had
an incredibly short courtship. The former family friends went on a trip to
New Zealand with a group, came back courting, and 41 days after that, they tied the knot
in June 2018. Joy-Anna Duggar married Austin Forsyth in
May 2017 and got pregnant on her honeymoon. Their son was born in February 2018. Joy-Anna may currently be the youngest married
Duggar, but it was at her wedding that her brother Joseph asked Kendra Caldwell to marry
him. So, was it a sweet moment, or did he steal
Joy-Anna’s thunder? You be the judge. Joseph and Kendra married in September 2017. “I can’t believe it, so exciting!” “Yeah.” With eleven more Duggar kids to go, it may
not be long before another wedding takes place! Check out one of our newest videos right here! Plus, even more List videos about your favorite
