I have been mesmerized with the Duggar Family for awhile... 18 kids... wow... certainly not a life for me. As I watched an episode late last night, while trying to relax after a long day (you would think my head would hit the pillow and I'd be out) I was amazed at the thought of courtship. Josh, from how I understand it, chose Anna as his wife. They knew each other (I'm not sure how they met... I'll have to research it.) He proposed, there was no dating, they always had a chaperon and before their wedding day the closest they ever came to one another was holding hands... no kissing AND they were fine with it.
As I thought about my own 3 years of dating before our engagement... I can't imagine it. No kissing... a chaperone... Do you really get to know someone if you never have the chance to even have a conversation in private? I believe that when you get married it is forever, but it was important to me to know the person I was committing myself to. Obvisouly, everyone is free to do as they please... which is why I love where we live and our freedom, I'm just in wonder.
I wish Josh and Anna well. They make a beautiful, very young couple.
