THE DUGGAR FAMILY
The Duggar kids are mostly adults now with their own lives; hence, it is quite challenging to catch the big family together. However, the official Duggar Instagram account recently shared a rare photo of all 19 siblings with their adopted brother Tyler. The caption read:
“Happy #NationalSiblingsDay from the Duggars!! Having a large family is an adventure, but it has been so worth it! #bestfriendsforlife.”
The snap, taken during Justin’s recent outdoor wedding, featured the 19 kids standing according to age, with the eldest son, Josh, on the left and the four youngest girls, Josie, Jordyn-Grace, Jennifer, and Johannah, on the right.
THE DUGGAR LIFESTYLE
Apart from their unique family dynamics, the Duggars are known to follow a particular lifestyle as devoted Christian Baptists. As such, they practice conservatism and have strict rules to follow.
The ceremony took place in April and featured a dapper groom and a gorgeous bride.
Among these are the way they dress, needing to cover most parts of their skin. They are also prohibited from consuming alcoholic beverages and cannot be alone with the opposite sex unless bonded by marriage.
Two Duggar’s tied the knot this year, Justin and Jed. Justin’s wedding with Claire Spivey came in February and was the event in the rare family photo with all 19 siblings. In a statement, the newlywed said:
“There is no greater joy than marrying your best friend. We are thankful for the prayers and support so many have shown us through our engagement [...].”
The 14th child of the Duggar matriarch and patriarch is 18 years old, while his bride is 19. The two met in 2019 and unexpectedly fell in love with each other, placing the Lord at the center of their relationship.
JED TIES THE KNOT
The ceremony took place in April and featured a dapper groom and a gorgeous bride. The reality star donned a navy blue suit while Nakatsu looked beautiful in a lace wedding dress with a tulle skirt.
Jed’s twin brother, Jeremiah, served as the best man and his wife’s sister took the role of maid of honor. Fans of the reality family were able to watch the wedding through a YouTube live stream.
