The Duggar family is known for their strict dating rules and many children. As the Duggars are watching their daughter Jessa grow into a young woman and begin dating, they are starting to realize they may want yet another baby in the house again. That would make 20 for couple, Michelle and Jim.

Michelle suffered a miscarriage in December 2011 that devastated the family. She says that the family is praying on another baby and are not sure if it is God’s will or not. She said they were also praying on whether or not they should try to conceive again or adopt another child instead.

“I would be so grateful if the Lord blessed us with another one. We’re trying at this point and we shall see if that is a possibility. If not, we are so thankful and grateful for the ones that God has given us so far. We are also definitely enjoying our grandbabies! They are so precious!” Michelle said, adding,”We’re praying about if the Lord would want us to adopt.”

It seems like the Duggar’s have made up their mind that a new baby will be joining their family one way or another. But having another child isn’t the only thing on Michelle and Jim’s minds. They have recently allowed their daughter Jessa to start dating.

Jessa is 20 years old and is the third daughter of Michelle and Jim Bob. She recently started dating 18 year old Ben Seewald after gaining her family’s approval.

We are so excited for Ben and Jessa,” Jim Bob said. “They are enjoying getting to know each other and are recommending sermons to one another.”

The Duggars have strong beliefs that couples should not hug or kiss until they are married. Michelle and Jim Bob work hard to enforce their dating rules and morals, but they are sometimes able to let a few tings slide.

“Dad allowed them to do a side hug when they were officially courting,” the matriarch of the Duggar family, Michelle,said. “They agreed that would be the only contact they should have.”

At least Michelle and Jim Bob won’t have to worry about Jessa and Ben working on a baby while they are working on one themselves.

    Can’t hug or kiss? Side hugs?

    I assure you that if you are too strict with your kids, it will lead to problems down the road. Every teenager wants to date, hug, and kiss. I have known kids that did not date in high school and they were very unhappy as adults. They always felt like they missed out on something.

    Developing meaningful relationships with the opposite sex takes practice. It also takes making mistakes. Forcing your kids to act a certain way doesn’t help the process. Looking back on my life, I know that I grew from even the bad dating experiences I have. The heart breaks taught me just as much as the joy.

    You can’t protect your kids from the world. That is impossible. However, you can be supportive, give insights, and encourage. One of the most important things is to teach your kids how to move forward from tragedy. Bad things happen to all people. Teach your kids how to recover from bad things.

    I do like the fact this couple prays a lot though.

    What in God’s name for? Does she think kids are just something you collect?

    They should be thankful for the kids they have.They can sped time and money on the grandkids.You would think that her having the miscarriage is a sign from god not to have any more.

    When asked about how long the Duggars waited to have sex after a baby is born. Mr. Duggar was quoted as saying” It depends on whether we have a private or semi-private room at the Hospital

    U all need to respect jim bob and michelles faith in the lord. freedom to practice loving god in our own way is the freedom we are givin as american people. u are bashing very good people and there are not too many of them left in this world. they are loving eachother as man and wife and have the freedom to not use birth control. another child would be a blessing and look how well the children have been turning out. GOOD PRODUCTIVE MEMBERS OF SOCIETY. so what is wrong with them wanting to bring up a another wonderful person who loves the lord. just saying

    No one was harmed by avoiding stupid and bad teen dating. LOL However it’s better that you teach your kids how to avoid bad dates than to avoid dating completely. As to Mrs Dugger, the odds are low that she conceives at 47 without some sort of IF support or that an adoption agency would hand over a baby to someone that already has 20 kids.
