The new episodes, which debut September 2, will take viewers inside the manic planning of a thrifty-but-huge Duggar wedding, and chart parents Jim Bob and Michelle's emotional rite-of-passage as they prepare to give away their first daughter.And that's not all the enormous God-fearing family, from Tontitown, Arkansas, have on their plate.
"It is not your liberty, women, to wear sensual, seductive clothing that is designed to draw the attention of your brothers." Let's hope she doesn't get caught in a tank top any time soon.The oldest daughter, Jana Duggar, is a little behind some of her siblings when it comes to courting, getting married, and settling down to have kids of her own.Reality stars Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar's conservative evangelical Christian beliefs are so extreme that they once forbid daughter Jill from helping a member of their extended family because the girl was pregnant outside of wedlock.On hit TLC reality series 19 Kids and Counting, the Duggars like to project an image of wholesome family values, but a series of incidents in recent months have revealed a darker side to the family's beliefs.Big changes are also in store for eldest Duggar sibling Josh, 26, and his wife Anna, who have now lived in Washington D. for a year, as well as for Jessa Duggar, 21, and her beau Ben Seewald, 19, as their courtship grows ever more serious.
We've seen the wedding photos from Jill and Derick's mega nuptials, and even their wacky registry list - which consisted of firearms and Fruit Loops no less - but soon fans will be able to go deeper inside the family's lead-up to the big day.And at 27, she's getting up there in age — at least when it comes to the Duggars.For most people, 27 is still a great time to be single.From wearing clothes her family would deem inappropriate to potentially taking birth control pills, both serious scandals in the Duggar world, Jinger's stirred up more than her fair share of controversy. But according to her and Jeremy, shorts aren't inappropriate — and now that she's living with her husband, she can live according to their rules and not her parents'."It is your liberty as to whether you dress modestly with a modest pair of pants, or with a skirt, or with a T-shirt, or with a blouse," Jeremy explained.The claim that this ordinance would provide predators with access to women's restrooms in order to assault or leer at girls or women is nothing more than fear-mongering and spreading ignorance and hatred.''Many that may or may not agree with their personal beliefs, but this does not mean that they shouldn't be allowed their reality show or that they should be attacked for their personal beliefs,' the organizer wrote.
