Tonight, fans of "19 Kids & Counting" will be able to see Jill Duggar wed Derick Dillard in a special episode that features the couple deciding on and agreeing to have a unique, covenant marriage.
A covenant marriage license is available only in Arkansas, Louisiana, and Arizona and allows for more opportunities for couples who want to ensure that they stay together through thick and thin. It requires a couple to have special premarital counseling and agreeing to seek counseling should they ever consider separating or divorcing. According to TLC, covenant marriages "do not permit no-fault divorces, or divorces that are granted without evidence that the marital contract was broken."
Jill and Derick agreed to this stronger commitment as a sign of faith in each other and God. Should they ever choose to file for divorce, though, they would have to prove that at least one of them either committed a felony or serious crime, physical or sexual abuse of their children, committed adultery, or lived separately for at least two years or just one year if there was a child and some form of abuse. more >>
Duck Dynasty's Jep Robertson was hospitalized over the weekend after he suffered a seizure while hunting deer last week.
It is unclear when the seizure occurred. What is clear is that Phil Robertson's youngest son did not let his condition get in the way of his humor. He tweeted a picture of himself in a hospital bed impersonating action actor Steven Seagal.
Jep captioned the picture with the words "Just like Steven Seagal, I'm Hard to kill." more >>
Jessa Duggar and Ben Seewald are preparing to say "I do" this weekend, and photos of their wedding invitations have just been released.
Jessa and Ben have been engaged for a short time and are planning a rather low-key event compared to the elaborate wedding of sister Jill and her husband Derick Dillard. Jessa previously spoke of wanting to re-use her sister's wedding decorations for her own celebration in order to save on funds. The couple wants to spend the majority of their money on the honeymoon, which will be the first time they will be able to be alone together.
Per Duggar family tradition, Jessa and Ben practiced a traditional courtship and did not hold hands or have any physical contact except for a quick side-hug. They were always accompanied by guardians on their dates, which generally meant that one or more of Jill's brothers or sisters would be invited on the outing. More recently, Ben moved onto Duggar property, meaning he was closer to his bride-to-be, but the rules remained the same. They were never alone and only held hands once they were engaged. Ben and Jessa will exchange their first kiss at the wedding ceremony. more >>
"Dancing with the Stars" and "Duck Dynasty" star Sadie Robertson has spoken out about saving herself for marriage and not hiding behind her family's famous last name when it comes to her own faith.
"For my whole life I've kind of been shadowing what my family says," the 17-year-old told TVGuide.com. "They'll say something about my faith and I agree. But now, it's time for me to say, 'This is who I am as well.' I'm not hiding behind my family anymore. I'm sharing my faith by myself, which has helped me to be more bold and more confident saying things. It's the same God; it's the same faith. It's just my opportunity to share it in my words. And I have enjoyed it. It's been good for me and I've grown a lot form it."
Robertson has made a name for herself with her views and her appearance on "DWTS," which has brought her a great deal of publicity. She has also spoken about her relationship with Blake Coward, who was "raised in the same kind of family." The couple shares the decision to abstain from intimacy until marriage, but Robertson has said she is not 100 percent certain if Coward is "the one." more >>

"Duck Dynasty" star John Luke Robertson and fiancée Mary Kate McEacharn are busy planning their wedding but have said that God takes priority in their relationship and will guide their marriage.
"We said in the beginning when we started dating that if our relationship is not centered on God and if we're not encouraging one another to stay faithful and to just love people, then we have no relationship at all," Robertson told FOX411. "When I was growing up [my parents] taught me to set my own rules and guidelines, to stay pure."
He and McEacharn went to school together, and while he wanted to date her, she was not too certain about starting a relationship with anyone. more >>
