JD and Abbie: Captured Before the Rapture

Recommended Posts

*yawn* I wonder how long it will take them before they start shoving them down our throats as the next Duggar stupor couple. JB is probably sitting somewhere with dollar signs in his eyes.

"Yay!" (as Jilly would say.)

Do we have a predicted nuptials date?

October is my guess, based on past Duggarling engagements.

They're hardcore Gothardites. For all of Abbie's grabbiness, I don't see their life being out of the prescribed box at all. Sorry. ?

Read an article where they said they knew each other for years, but they did not meet officially until last year. How can you know someone for years and officially not meet until last year. I think it was a set up between JB and Abbie's parents because people were asking about JD getting a girl and settling down. Yes they act like they are in love, but I think it is just the first time someone of the opposite sex giving each other the time of day and finally getting a chance to be physical with someone making them act like they do.

No clue on the wedding date, but I hope Abbie continues to be employed. Perhaps they will wait until she has accumulated vacation time.

Please, tell me how someone can claim to know each other for years but only officially meet last year? This is another example of Duggar 'double speak'....contradictions, one after the other with these people.

I hope JD has at least a years stash of condoms so they can really get to know each other before a baby comes.

Surprises can still happen even with condoms.

I see this as JD had to wait until JB  was okay for him to court and get engaged. There is madness to JB's method of marrying off his children one by one. People were asking about how long it will take JD to "officially meet" someone, so no time like the present for JB. JD may be 28 years old, but JB still has some control over him. And JB had to make sure JD "found" the right type of woman to please the fans and to keep the show running for at least a few more years.

Their world is extremely segregated, unmarried males and females do not socialize together. JD & Abbie knew who the other one was, but weren't allowed to actually meet until their respective fathers gave their approval (or ordered them to do so).

This is the first couple I'd like to see actually shoved down our throat.

Abbie is 11 months younger than Jill and 7 months older than Jessa.

And JD's age doesn't matter in terms of how many kids he could sire.

Based only on opinion, I think JD may have had a crush on Abbie but was too shy to indicate this to her.  I'd like to think that Abbie finally made the first move. She seems to be the more natural hugger/toucher, and JD clearly digs it.  

I've said it before, but it really moves me that JD is able to be so physically affectionate with Abbie.  Growing up in that household with the Josh scandal, and the resulting environment that brothers will be predators of their sisters unless everything is strictly controlled . . . is 

In their environment, Abby would never be allowed to make the first move.  She would have passive-aggressively positioned herself so that JD took notice of her.  She would never have initiated contact with him, only throw herself into his orbit over and over again until he spoke up.  I remember my fundie roommate from college and her friends talking about some book that talked about this. I still remember her yelling at one of her friends that "A woman cannot pursue a man.  It says so in the Bible."

TLC only goes with what JD and Abbie gives them. They are in the business to sell the new couples as great in order to get the ratings and money to keep rolling in. I find all the couples dull and boring. They are not special in my opinion. I can go around my neighborhood and find more interesting couples roaming around.

This is very true.  My surprise is going to be 26 next month. 

Honestly, we can only guess what goes on when the cameras are not running.  I just hope they are happy and live the life they want to live.  They are older than the average Duggar bride and groom and that , IMO, is a big plus for them.  They may not leave the religious beliefs behind, but maybe they will be a bit more relaxed about the stupid nit-picky rules and restrictions.

I wonder if they'll have Abbie continue working ("working") to keep the star couple narrative going. I mean, it would be a STFU internets moment to see Abbie continue to work.

Wow, I'm shocked. I thought for sure TLC would strong-arm Abbie into having the wedding in Arkansas. Maybe with the Burnetts in control, this wedding won't be a typical Duggar disaster. My curiosity is piqued....

Is early November the same time Jessa got married. I bet she might not be happy with the fact she will be tossed aside for JD and Abbie. That in itself would be entertaining to watch.

I bet she is pissed. Her anniversary is November 1, her birthday is November 4, and Spurgeon's birthday is November 5. All that's going to get overshadowed this year with the wedding.

Jinger and Jeremy got married in November also. Poor, poor Jessa and Jill. One is being tossed aside for Jinger and JD, and the other one got tossed aside because her husband is an idiot.

You're right! November 5 for them. 

They really like early November weddings, apparently.

Maybe off-season discounts if they're not going to get freebies? :/

Hey Swansons - get this!  You didn't have to uproot the family to have your daughter marry be sold off to a Duggar boy.

I hope the Burnetts take over the entire wedding and the Duggars don't have a say in the decor, ceremony and the food.  I hope that Abbie gets the wedding of her dreams.  And JB, if you plan on JD flying out your family for the ceremony, don't plan on him interrupting his honeymoon to fly you back.

Ohh, I'll bet Jessa will be giving the stink eye to everyone and being her rude self to the Burnetts.  Plus I'll be she'll be posting on IG all about her, her wedding and Spurgeon then entire weekend with no mention of her brother's wedding.

In a family this large, date clusters like this are inevitable.  Even in my extremely small family, we had 3 birthdays within a 9 day period.  (Although in all fairness, all 3 were in September and it gets pretty cold in Chicago in January!) 

Also, JD probably doesn't want to wait too long at this point.

Why are they so fond of November? What's wrong with an October wedding? Have any of them ever gotten married during that month? Are all of these women on the same cycle, or something?

Not unless she gets licensure in AR. She's only licensed in OK,  AFAIK.

The Biblical Rapture ? Yeah, wouldn't that be a bit of a disappointment to him? As much as all these TrueChristians claim that it can't come soon enough for them, I have a feeling JD and Abbie might have their minds a bit more on the Earthly rapture than the heavenly one right now.

Yeah, in my small family my brother, sister, and two nephews were all born between September 11-13. We are also from Illinois where it’s a cold, cold winter.  I’m sure the Duggars realize that there are only 365 days in a year and there will be some overlap.
