John and Abbie have been married a year. It isreported
, that despite the couple claims that it was love at first sight, there have been allegations that they knew each for years before getting married.
It is alleged by a fellow churchgoer, who grew up with Abbie that the Duggar's and Abbie's family, the Burnett's had known each other for years. They often saw each other yearly for church, and may have even stayed at Abbie's family home during one of their visits.
Apart from their commitment to their religion, the Burnett’s and Duggar have another thing in common, which is their big family sizes.
With seven siblings, Abbie's family size might not compare to the Duggar’s 19 children. However, she has adjusted well to her new life after growing up in home with a more than average sized number of family members.
After they posted the first picture of their daughter, they revealed that they were completely "smitten" over her and been spending their first moments enjoying snuggling with her.
Unlike the rest of their siblings, who met their partners when they were teenagers, Abbie and John met when they were both in their late 20's.
It is reported, the couple had to bent some of the family's courtship rules about not contact because they were much older, and were allowed an occasional hug or to put an arm around each other during their courtship phase.
