Three Duggar children are married and the public is wondering who will be next. John David Duggar has spoken out about his plans for courtship, which he says he wants to do according to God's will.
John David, 24, has often laughed off rumors about him being in a relationship and told TLC producers that there were "no ladies in my life yet, at least not so as anyone can know. No, there's absolutely no ladies in my life right now."
The 24-year-old Duggar joked at sister Jill's wedding that he was taking applications for a spouse, which went over well with the crowd. Dad Jim Bob is known for being an influential figure in his daughters' relationships, but insists that he's never specifically chosen their husbands. However, he does evaluate potential suitors to make sure they're worthy of his daughters' time. more >>
The Duggar family of "19 Kids and Counting" has come under fire for issuing a challenge to fans to post photos of themselves and their wives or husbands kissing but removing photos of homosexual couples from the page on Tuesday.
"God designed marriage to be a loving, dynamic relationship between a husband and wife for a lifetime," the Duggar Family's official Facebook page read on Nov. 10.
"God loves marriage and it is supposed to be full of love, joy, fun and romance. Marriage is where romance begins! Recently, Ben & Jessa received some criticism for posting a kissing picture. We are so grateful they waited to share their first kiss until after marriage. We've been married 30 years and are still in love! We had fun trying to duplicate Ben and Jessa's happily married kissing picture. We challenge all married couples to take a happily married picture and post it here." more >>
"Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson earned her best score yet on "Dancing with the Stars" after America chose her costume and the dance style for Monday's show.
It was "America's Choice" on "DWTS" where voters on social media were able to choose the song, dance and costume for contestants this week. For their first dance of the night, Robertson and her professional dance partner Mark Ballas danced the jive to the song "1, 2, 3 Turnaround."
For the first time since the season began, Robertson donned a costume that featured thin shoulder straps, a plunging neckline and very short hemlines that revealed much of the model's legs. Despite the departure from her more modest costumes, Robertson's jive only earned the couple 33 points out of 40. more >>
"Duck Dynasty" star and minister Alan Robertson issued a warning on Monday for all Americans calling for them to repent of their sins before civilization collapses in on itself.
"Let's look at human civilization and go back at all the great cultures that rose up, like the Romans or others, and it [sin] just weighs in on itself and it destroys. It becomes such a weighted-down culture in its own seeking of personal pleasure or personal gain, and then it collapsed. It's happened every time, up to now. Do I think it will happen to America? Absolutely," Robertson told CNSNews.com.
Robertson is part of the "Duck Dynasty" clan that became famous for its family and Christian values. He has seemingly followed in his father's footsteps by becoming a minister and preaching the Word to the people. He also worked with his father to co-edit the new study Bible, The Duck Commander Faith and Family Bible. more >>

Michelle Duggar, mother of new bride Jill, who is expecting her first child with husband Derick Dillard, has opened up on Monday to brag about her daughter's marriage.
"It's just so sweet to watch these guys and girls that are really in love," Michelle wrote on the family blog about Jill and Derick. "Love is in the air and it's good for all of us to be around that, even if the little siblings have to go, 'Oh no, they're kissing again, oh my!'"
Jill and Derick waited until they exchanged vows to share their first kiss and did not even hold hands until they were engaged. It was a personal choice for the couple, who firmly believed in firm abstinence from physical intimacy until they were truly committed to one another. Now they are expecting their first son together. more >>
