Sweet Fellowship: Duggars and Friends (aka the Bates Family and Other TLC Families Thread)

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know what the situation is with Lawson Bates and Tiffany (or is it Tiffy) - are they living together? They appear to travel all over, just the 2 of them, proclaim their love for each other on Instagram. They stand very close, their bodies touch, but I haven’t seen them kiss in videos or pics. And Lawson is almost always talking/gazing into the camera; he doesn’t much look at her. But they’re together so much. Anyone watch the Bates show? Is Tiffy on it?

Tiffany hasn't appeared on the Bateses' show yet, but they're only at the holidays. On the show, Nathan just brought home Esther to meet the family, so it may be a while before they introduce Tiffany. Maybe season finale?

I think Gil is so desperate to get the boys married off, he's letting them do whatever they want. Courtship rules have gone by the wayside.

Until another girl enters a courtship.

By the time Josie was courting most Bates' rules were gone. They still encouraged accountability partners, and obviously no kind of sexual contact, but I believe kissing was even okay, once they were engaged.

Wow, I didn't realize that.   Usually they show the dads essentially beating their chests like a gorilla whle standing over the daughters about to enter a courtship or currently courting.

But look at Katie’s courtship, she couldn’t even touch Travis for their engagement pictures. Unless that was solely because of the Clarks.

I think that was Kelton’s FU to Gil for not allowing him to talk to Josie when she was 14. I wonder if Josie felt uncomfortable.

Just looked at Sierra Jo Dominguez IG, and she sure does look pregnant IMO.  She also looks like she’s 45-years-old.  If someone doesn’t mind posting the picture (because I’m tech stupid), tell me what you think. (She’s wearing a pink and bright red-orange jumpsuit, if you’re wondering which pic I’m referring to.)

Here you go! Looks like she's doing that thing I hate where she's using multiple photos to make one big one on the grid, but since I never look at someone's grid, you just get weird pieces of photos in your feed.

On another note, Tori, Josie and Whitney are all due to deliver next month. It'll be Tori's 3rd child, a girl, and her second pandemic baby. Josie's 2nd child, also a girl and Whitney's 4th child, a boy.

It'll be 18 grandchildren for the Bates, with the Duggars at 20 and expecting two more.

She has renamed it for the most recent one, typo is Jill’s:

And what if one or more of the Rod kids are naturally shy and scared to stand in front of a group of strangers and sing?  I only have two kids but one was like that, so we never forced her up to the front of the church for the children's sermon.  These kids don't have a choice, and they probably also don't have a set of loving arms to run into if they get scared staring out at a bunch of leering, unfamiliar faces.

Hopefully it's not a case of mommy telling them that if they sing loud and don't cry, they will get fed.  That's where my mind goes, unfortunately.

I don't think she'd even offer food as an incentive. I think it would more likely be "Anybody who cries or refuses to sing will get the whipping of their life when I get you home".

I can hear bestmamaever saying, “If you don’t sing, that means you don’t love Jeeesus, so you’ll go to Hell all by yourself, because all of your brothers and sisters love Jeeesus, and they’ll be in Heaven.”  I think that bitch is twisted enough to say those words.

If this weren't a fundie snark forum, I'd probably say early 1980s. But since it's fundies, 2000s? Is that Bateseseses?
