Duggar dating rules full episode
Since TLC came into the picture, the Duggars have also gotten many of the usual non-income perks that go along with reality TV gigs: They’ve traveled around the world, received help when furnishing that large home and likely got some financial aid when hosting Jill Duggar’s recent mega-wedding.
Dad, Jim Bob Duggar, and his longtime wife, Michelle Duggar, are members of an ultra-religious and politically conservative community that values modesty, obeying the patriarch as head of a family, and above all else, having lots and lots of children.
In 2001, Jim Bob explained they were financially secure enough that he didn’t have to work full-time.
He instead served in the Arkansas House of Representatives between 19, before spending his own 0,000 on a failed senate campaign.
In 1990, after six years of using credit and gathering some debt, Jim Bob and Michelle attended a seminar on Jim Sammons’ program.
And what about bathroom privacy (answer: they have nine bathrooms and seven showers in their 7000 square foot house).
(The Arkansas House of Reprsentatives job now pays approximately ,000; Jim Bob likely earned less during his terms.) The Duggars’ money philosophy also requires a lot of patience: Using an ,000 construction kit, they began building a 7,000-square-foot home in 2000.
They didn’t complete the project in 2006, at which point they were finally able to move the family of 18 out of their old 2,000-square-foot home.
Although the investigation had to be abandoned due to the statute of limitations, Josh, the Duggar family, and became the focus of a media frenzy.
Josh and his family were widely criticized for the circumstances of the crimes, their handling of the crimes, and their perceived hypocrisy in the face of their extensive and controversial "family values activism." .
(which we're pretty sure is the Duggars' least favorite publication) reported in 2015 that the family adheres to a home schooling program from the Advanced Training Institute, which is "a Bible-based homeschooling program run by alleged cult figurehead Bill Gothard." Gothard himself has been accused of a slew of improper sexual advances on young girls, but that's not where the creepiness ends.
