Why is that? (Please don't feel like I'm singling you out.) I'm just interested in why you feel that way.

It's the religion that they follow (they're Quiverfulls). Quiverfulls believe in Creationism, don't use birth control, and wear very modest clothing (right down to swimsuits). The wife must be submissive to her husband, and the children must be submissive to their parents.

Why is it that there are people on this board that are so down on the
Duggars? I think they are just a large family with a lot of love in their hearts.

I don't know much about them but they seem like a nice family. Different, certainly, but not bad people.

There are probably quite a few people who watch their show and find it heartwarming and inspiring. That's a good thing.

I do believe in God but I no longer really believe that God Himself has a plan for each person. I think our entire life is up to us. I also think that we have alternate selves existing in alternate realities. To me, it's more about our plan than anything else. I don't believe God is judgmental either, so I certainly don't believe he would have a problem with there being a TV show about their lives.

Yes, they love each other, but how much time can you spend with each individual child when you have 18?

I'm sure they find plenty of time... VERY restricted internet usage, not allowed to watch much TV, everybody was or is homeschooled (I'm guessing Jana, John-David and Jill are done with school too -- Josh graduated from school at 16), they all eat meals together, and can assemble their own musical group (all the kids that are able to, know how to play an instrument).

I do NOT agree with ANY of their beliefs at all (Creationism LOL) - however, I have tremendous respect for the Duggar parents. They are clearly doing something right, as far as kids' behavior goes in public, and the buddy system seems to be very effective.

Yes, I'm sure they have a great family life, but if it were me, I'd rather adopt 18 of the children in this world who are starving to death and have no one to care for them.

Yeah...there are too many people in this world as it is. Take care of the ones we already have. Nothing wrong with wanting to have your own children, but 18?


Besides...I just can't help but think that some of these children may end up with psychological problems, mainly from being forced to raise children so early. I could very well be wrong, but that's just my perception.

Exactly, it just doesn't sit right with me, I dunno.

I'm more horrified at the fact that the Duggar kids have actually said they want to marry someone that is like their parents. I dunno about you guys, but I really don't want to marry someone who reminds me of my dad. O.o

Default It's their own business...

Pro-choice works both ways. This couple made a decision to have a large family. This adoption argument makes no sense. They want their own kids. I've seen shows on this family's lifestyle, and it's not as if they're working the kids to death. They all have daily chores. I had chores growing up. Buddy system, good way to put it, Allison. The Duggars are happy and are doing it on their own. They are an outstanding and loving family. I don't see the harm in it. Spend a day in Family Court in a rough neighborhood, see the insanity and dysfunction that goes on in some families, and the Duggars will look better.

True, but it's said that a man often marries his mother while a woman marries her father, psychologically. In my case, it's actually true. My husband has some of my father's characteristics, like being a family man and a hard worker. I could never marry a man who was allergic to work. I'm like my mother-in-law in how I'm very domestic. I keep a cozy home, with the cooking, baking, holiday decorations, that sort of thing. I've seen pictures of her when she was younger, and we're the same type in looks, reddish blonde hair, big eyes, same type figure. Often a person will marry an alcoholic if their parent was one. That's tied into the low self-esteem that growing up in that environment creates. They don't think they deserve better.

I think we're the exception to the rule though as most people marry the opposites of their parents. It all depends, I guess.

It's hard to imagine a family with 18 kids running relatively smoothly but their family seems too...true the vast maj. of people would not want to have soooooo many kids but the Duggars are into it....and it seems to be working for everyone in the family...so...more power to them! In their own way they're kinda cool.

I have a possible solution to that. One of the New Age beliefs is that people create their own realities with their thoughts, beliefs and emotions and that if you think about something for long enough, and fully believe and expect to get it, then you will eventually attract it to yourself.

It probably only seems to people that the world is overpopulated because they keep thinking that. (They're creating their reality.) So if people change their beliefs and start believing, "The world is not overpopulated", then they'll attract that reality to themselves.

Seth, a spirit channelled by Jane Roberts from 1963 until her death in 1984 went deep into this subject in the book The Nature of Personal Reality.
