5 Duggar Family Rules You Won’t Believe Are Real, Even if You Watched the Show

TLC’s famous Duggar family is notorious for having 19 children. But the family is also famous for their religious values and strict rules—from saving your first kiss until marriage, always wearing skirts, and more. Take a look at some of the most extreme family rules parents Jim Bob and Michelle have established.

Side Hugs And No Kissing!

The Duggar children are famous for entering courtships with their significant other. This is an ancient dating term; to the family, it basically means the couple is “dating with the intention to marry.” But Jim Bob and Michelle forbid their children to “front hug” their significant other, and there is absolutely no kissing.

Keep A Chaperone Around

When the children are courting, a chaperone must always be present. Nearly all dates are chaperoned by Jim Bob and Michelle.

Their daughters are taught to be submissive to their husbands. As Michelle said, “You need to always be available when he calls.”

Absolutely No Beach Trips

Jim Bob and Michelle want to shield their sons from looking at inappropriately dressed women at the beach. Michelle said, “It’s just too hard for the guys to try and keep their eyes averted.” Fans have questioned this particular rule, saying that maybe the Duggar sons should learn to control their sexual desires as they mature. This feeling was exacerbated when their oldest son, Josh, had a sex scandal that nearly destroyed the ultra-conservative family’s reputation in 2015.
