Dating standards today
Courtship involves a lot more commitment and seriousness and is not to be viewed lightly.As Jim Bob has said in the past, “Courtship is really waiting for the one God has for you and praying through the whole process.” And the father of 19 also mentioned that his daughters should be viewing every man she enters a courtship with as a possible father to her children, since having kids is also most certainly on the brain for the Duggars.While sometimes it’s them who join the dates, typically it’s a sibling who can keep an eye on the two and make sure no one’s up to any funny business.“The chaperones then have clear guidelines for what is acceptable and what’s not,” TLC reports Michelle said. What that means is they’re allowed to say, ‘Hey, are you supposed to be doing that?Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar are the proud parents of 19 children, and over the years we’ve watched their oldest kids become adults and their youngest grow up right alongside them.And when it comes to their kids having families of their own, the Duggars have a variety of rules they must follow when dating.Yes, the prom as we knew it still exists, but even its drama pales in comparison to today’s boy-girl relationship issues.“It’s not your parents’ dating anymore,” concedes Robin Gurwitch, a clinical psychologist at the Duke Center for Child and Family Health.
We’ll never forget when Jinger gave Jeremy a full-frontal hug after he proposed to her — and we’re willing to bet other Duggars have snuck in a hug or two as well.
s prom season approaches, it’s easy to conjure romantic thoughts of dating rituals we experienced long ago.
