Ben acts just as mature as Jim Bob and Michelle, IMO. And as mature as Mr and Mrs. Bates too. Of course, that's not saying much. They all act extremely immature to have such large families.
I will applaud Jessa if she feels it's not right to stay put instead of marrying and leaving home. It must be a huge temptation. According to Jessa's family, she is so distracted by Ben that she can't fold clothes. So, maybe she is really into him. Plus, I don't think they require the same amount of being in love as you might think. It's more of do we have the same religious principles and can we get a long. If those things are met, then what's the hold up. That's my take on it. I do recall one of the Bates kids breaking off a courtship, though I don't know the reason.

I just don't think Jessa shows her emotions as much on camera, but I could be wrong.
The Duggar girls are currently on book tour. Its amusing because you can tell they have rehearsed answers for nearly every question. The only difference is which girl answers and puts her own spin on it. They've also become very good at seeming to answer a question when really they haven't said anything at all. :rolleyes:

I would be interested in the Duggar girls REAL story, not this thing their parents have conjured up.
They are sitting on a gold mine and don't know it. Those adult daughters could hire the right person and compile personal, individual stories of their lives. It's quite bizarre and I think touching for those girls to have lived the way they have since childhood.
The true story of how their parents really are, would be very interesting. I expect they would consider it a betrayal of their parents. I can understand that, but it is their experience and their life. They have a right to tell the truth, IMO. It could bring them enough money to pay for college and a house. That's huge. If they could get that without getting married, it would take a lot of pressure off and provide them with another option in life.
Of course, maybe the book they are promoting now will also be a big seller. I can't imagine they will actually see much of the money though.
Do you recall a few seasons back when the Duggar girls talked about their hairstyles? Basically their hairstyles are based on what their daddy likes. Creepy, IMO. But, that's the way he wants them to wear their hair. It's like a throwback to the 80's. Did you see the episode where Michelle got a makeover? OMG. She looked 100% better. Her hair was done in a very current style. (She got proper makeup too.) It wasn't any shorter, just styled differently. Michelle smiled, but she didn't like it. She returned back to her current outdated style immediately.
I have read that people get stuck with a hairstyle or clothes style in the era that they feel they looked their best. I guess for Michelle is was the 80's.
