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

Published

on

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. They must save the first kiss until their wedding day, which could be awkward if you find out your partner is a terrible kisser…

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. But if they aren’t available, a sibling steps in to keep an eye on things during the date. This means when the couple’s oldest daughter, Jana, starts courting, she’ll need a chaperone. She’s 28 years old!

Women Can’t Wear Pants

Duggar daughters are required to be modest at all times, which means they must wear dresses and skirts, no matter what physical activity they’re doing. Fans were stunned, however, when Jinger (Duggar) Vuolo began wearing pants after getting married in 2016. She’s a rebel, but that’s probably why she’s a fan favorite.

Be Submissive To Your Husband

While the Duggar family has strict courting rules, those rules go out the window the minute a bride and groom say “I do.” Jim Bob and Michelle strongly encourage their children to begin having their own children shortly after marriage, and the majority of their children follow the rule. 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.
