Jill would have been all over social media when he entered into a courtship IF he had but you know she would have radio silence once he gave away a piece of his heart and the ...(what the hell do you call the other person, courtship-e?) girl dumped Timmy.

I find it hard to believe that Tim could bring himself to reveal the family’s secrets to strangers, no matter how “Christian” they were. He’s always been clearly terrified of his mother’s wrath.

I can't see Jill or that blob she's married to allowing one of the children to court someone they didn't like. They seem to retain total control over these kids lives.

The post is fishy, but I think all the actual info in it is believable, or at least believable enough.
 

What I find weird is the tone...so breathless. Honestly, I think it’s more likely that Tim wrote it than that a friend from some college small group did lol

My husband is a judge in WV. I can say that if a family is in the court system due to neglect/abuse, they can be made to go to public schools. The parents in those cases may not have lost all parental rights, but are limited to physical custody, meaning that the court can make pretty much all parental decisions for the child.  That includes attending school.  From his experience, and mine from 30+ years in the educational system, most of the home schooling done by parents in the system is inadequate at best.
 

I don’t think that the Rods had gotten that far in the pipeline, because the case would follow them wherever they go. Lots of people try to move, but the mean old judge can find them and make them come to his court.  I have seen it happen.

I think if Tim had been seeing a girl the family disapproved of, it wouldn't have been called a courtship.

If Tim started seeing a girl without clearing it with Jill, first, it wouldn't be a courtship.  It could be he met someone up in Wisconsin and was interested in her and Jill demanded he come home immediately for having the audacity to think for himself.  Especially if she wasn't their brand of fundie and her family didn't do courtships.

I do think something specific happened in Wisconsin to bring Tim back to Ohio, especially with Jill barely commenting on it until he was already home to stay.  I'm sure he had academic problems but there could be more to it than that and it also might explain why Jill virtually ignored him for a bit.

Yes, I could definitely see this far more than an actual courtship or him genuinely dating someone. Especially in light of him not posting any of the normal homages to Jill. Or her not posting them on his behalf. I do think Jill is pissed at him for whatever reason and that there's more to his return home than she's allowed.

I agree.  Remember, Tim was utterly appalled that one of his instructors didn't think that the KJV was the one true Bible and actually told the class that he preferred another translation.  And, what did Tim do?  Did he approach the teacher and ask some questions to get some insight as to why the teacher felt that way?  Did Tim go to the library, get a copy of the other Bible and compare it to the KJV?  Did he talk to his pastor and perhaps ask if there were any references he could use to learn more about the differences between translations?

Oh, hell no!  He apparently ran screaming from the classroom and immediately called Mama to report the heresy.  A kid who has been so thoroughly indoctrinated into the cult that he cannot even bear to consider the POV of another Christian who probably is just marginally less strict that Tim's upbringing is not a guy who is going to welcome change.

I wonder what they would think if they learned that the KJV was busywork King James assigned to the clergy so they wouldn't have time to complain and interfere with his apparently plentiful gay lovers. They had harassed him to the point of cramping his style with the gentlemen, so he distracted them as much as he could.

Real divine inspiration, huh?

Even if she isn’t pregnant, I wouldn’t put it past her to make the grand announcement at the wedding and then claim to have a miscarriage a few weeks later. It probably wouldn’t even count as lying, since I think she convinces herself that everything she says is true as soon as it comes out of her mouth.

I’ve been to many cheesy bridal showers (Heck, I HAD cheesy bridal showers), and I’ve NEVER seen the bride and her mother and sisters perform a song. Play stupid games, sure, but not sing. Once again, Jill has to remind Nurie that she is never going to enjoy the spotlight - not even for her wedding.

Part of a parent's job is to be honest with their kids even when it may hurt their feelings.

Okay JillR, do some parenting.

Between the painful school concerts I've sat through and the American Idol auditions I've seen, I'd say Jill's parenting is actually pretty common on this one. I'd like to say Tim's lack of talent and Jill's desire for him to make the video are rare, but I've sadly seen too many parents forcing kids to do things they have no desire to do to say it's also not uncommon. 

Nurie's dress for her wedding shower is pretty and appropriate, that's a step in the right direction. I'm not one to start screaming pregnant, but I'm going with Jill making an announcement at the wedding, most likely the rehearsal dinner. That way she can steal all the attention at both events. The nursery reveal for the 2 year old was basically a flashing neon arrow.

If Jill is pregnant now, then it’s even more pressure for Nurie to get pregnant on her honeymoon. Cause you know Jill’s counting on both of them being pregnant at the same time.  Gotta take that spotlight. 
I hope Nathan and Nurie make the decision to wait at least a couple of months, though I doubt it will happen. They’ve both been so sheltered, they need to learn about each other before they add a baby to the mix. But I doubt that will happen.

In typical fundie fashion, Jill is cradling her lower abdomen as she sings. They only ever do that when pregnant, right? Once pregnant, a lady must always cradle her bump.

Jill will announce at the rehearsal dinner and promptly faint due to the stress of the pregnancy's severe effects on her delicate constitution.  Then, the Rod boys will be pressed into service, carrying Jill everywhere on a litter for the rest of the wedding, like Cleopatra on the Nile, probably dressed in her gown from her vow renewal complete with veil.

Nurie looks SS though she’s already dressed for the wedding- that dress would actually work as a wedding dress for a simple, low keyed ceremony.

The pic of Tim and the female could indicate a courtship, but it could also be so many other things.

Tim's wearing, what appears to be, a work shirt. It looks as though "E" may have the same shirt on. This could be a work related team building exercise.

And where are they? The background looks like maybe an industrial kitchen. Maybe E & Tim are leading activities at the care home he was said to work at.

They are SEVERELY close. More frontal than an acceptable side hug between an ENGAGED couple, never mind a courting one. That young woman is obviously sluttish with VERY loose morals. Mama would be rending her garments over his apostasy.

Just because they didn't announce it doesn't mean the relationship wasn't sanctioned by his parents. Nurie and Nathan were courting or precourting for a couple of months before Jill announced it. Here are some excerpts from the Duggar Data post:

"On April 23, 2019, Nurie Rodrigues did a Happy Birthday IG Post for her fiancé, Nathan Keller.  In the Post, Nurie said: “It has been exactly a year ago, today, that we stated our relationship.  ...

Duggar Data goes on to say that Nurie and Nathan probably started courting in June when Jill started talking about a new announcement. Jill announced July 2 that Nurie was courting, but had started her relationship April 23. She used the Rods Instagram as the source. 

It's possible that the girl's parents didn't want Tim as a son-in-law. Fundie males are supposed to support the women and children. The Rod boys aren't the only guys with this problem. The Bates boys, the Bowers boys and other fundie males have this problem. Tim needs to find a girl whose family will employ him.
