They had a marathon of the show on the other day and I just had to watch some of it. The one I did catch, was where the oldest boy is enganged and they were going over the rules of their "courtship" and how they are only going to hold hands before they get married. It's not something I would ever do, but I found it sweet and endearing for them. Their lifestyle works for them, it seems.
Calling them irresponsible when they care for 18 children without government assistance is just wrong.
Regardless of health risks, I don't believe the feasibility of raising 18 kids has been proven to be successful in this day and age. While this does not mean it will be disastrous, it does mean that there is inherent risk in creating a family that large.
Also, I never said it was irresponsible for financial reasons. If that's your only criteria for being irresponsible (having babies without the financial means) then our views are vastly different.
If they are only holding hands can you imagine how that first kiss and just simple petting will be like? WOW!
Bless the Duggars....each and every one.
Poor Michelle, she must be like the Holland Tunnel down there, after having so many kids.
It matters not how strait the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate:
I am the captain of my soul.
