How old are Jill and David?

I think Jill is 41 and David in his mid-late 40's. There is about a 7-9 year age difference between them.

I like the name Colton, but not sure how I feel about Kolter. Not the worst I've heard, but not one I'm crazy about either. 

Anyways, congrats, I guess.

Oh that's right--there was the whole creepy story from Jill about him ogling her when she was quite underage and he was 18/19, right?

I think Jill was 16ish when they first met. She was married off at 19. I think Shrek was 26ish.

She was 18.  Her wedding was October 4th 1997 and she was born November 3 1978. She would have turned 19 in November after she got married. David was 25.

I could have sworn there was a whole multi-year history before that, which involved her bragging about David eyeballing her, and when we did the math, we were all weirded out.

Tori is lucky she could have her husband with her during L & D. Some areas aren't allowing anyone. Our area allows one person during L & D, then that person has to leave after 2 hours and can't come back.

Does this mean the whole clan wasn’t in the room just moments after the birth? Poor Kelly must have been going crazy, lol. Also, noted People exclusive. Seems like the Duggars don’t get that anymore.

I guess she had the baby in an actual hospital. As soon as she goes home everyone will come over to hold the baby.

On tv they are saying 1 person per room or no one is allowed.

Maybe it means that while taking the class you get your college and career out of the way so you can go on in adult life to do something else......

Like grift for a living and eat the whopping majority of the food that ought to be going to your excessive number of children.

Ew, horny 12-year-old Jill stalking a much older and unattainable man. For years. Just so gross.  I take it he’s the only boyfriend she ever had?   And vice versa. Not that I can’t see why.

it used to mean the sunday school class for those that were out of high school and either in college or working. there is a sunday school group for high school and after you graduate you move up to 'college and career'.  then, upon marriage , there are other groups. what i dont understand is how a 14 year old was involved with an older guy in this group -- its not done that way here.

I think she meant she saw him and he was attending that class not that she was also in that class.  It's still very weird to have an acknowledge a crush on such an older guy.  I wonder how much was a revision of actual history.

I don't think it's that weird for a girl that age to have a crush on an older guy--what's creepy as fuck is David seeming to reciprocate and being completely aware of how much younger she was.

I remember being 10/11 and seeing some 20-year old guy at a church function and thinking, "Hot damn!" (I was always a bit of a heathen at heart, I guess.) The difference was he didn't pay me any attention because he wasn't a creep and, you know, I was 10. 

My older brothers are about 10 years older than me. I definitely had crushes on their friends.  No one reciprocated, because that would be creepy.  MrJill probably had no other options.

People wouldn't have been allowed in the room with the one person limit. They all sell their pics now anyway. If anyone would have taken pictures, it would have been Taryn, and she offered her congrats in the comments.

It's certainly possible, but if so, it doesn't mitigate any of the creepiness.

It's hard to say. He never gets to say anything. I guess he preaches at the churches they grift from, but he can just recycle the sermons. Jill-of-All-Trades probably writes them anyway. 

I wonder why Princess of the Universe settled for a plain-looking guy whose background was so "different"? I wonder if her family disapproved and that made her even more determined to get what she wanted. Maybe she also saw David as someone she could control. This is a little like dorky JimBob winning bikini-wearing cheerleader Michelle, but JB took some power. David's got nothing we know about.

That's my bet. I doubt there were really any women chasing after him. A man with not the best looks who won't hold a job, and always begging, I mean grifting for money. Jill didn't luck out that was more all women going 'He's all yours'.

Its probably the same thing. They both got a hot girl to marry them.

From their blog:

 

David grew up in Rochester, NY.  As a young child, David had trials enter his life. David’s dad committed suicide when David was only 5 yrs. old. He did not grow up in a Christian home and at the age of 18 yrs. old, he had pretty much tried everything to satisfy the longing in his soul.

One day when he was hanging out in the mall with his cousin, a man came up to him in the mall and handed him a Gospel tract called God’s Simple Plan of Salvation.  This man went on to explain how David could have eternal life!  Those words, “Eternal Life” stood out in David’s mind.  After the man explained how David could be saved, the mall guard came up and told the man witnessing that he could not do that in the mall.  Although this man’s witness was cut short, it still took root in David’s heart.

A few months later when David arrived home from a party that he went to again to try to fill the longing in his heart, he remembered these man’s words of how to be saved and David knelt down by his bed and asked the Lord Jesus Christ into his heart to save him!!

He has never been the same and God put someone in his path to invite him to a good, Bible-believing Baptist Church.  He grew in the Lord and served God in Rochester, NY for a few more years.  Then, he went to NYC to help a couple of churches there.  He served with the Pete Montoro Family in Astoria, Queens and then the Dana Dice Family in Jamaica, Queens.

David prayed fervently for a wife to serve along side him.  Jill came into his life and after their marriage they have served faithfully in various churches in NY State until God called them to West Virginia.  In NY, David taught a young married couples class for 10 1/2 yrs.  David & Jill’s goals have been to make a difference in the lives of other people for the cause of Christ!!

Jude 1:22 And of some have compassion, making a difference:

All glory and praise be to Jesus Christ!!!
