Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar of TLC's 19 Kids & Counting fame have been married 30 years, with 19 children and three grandchildren to show for it.
Almost as incredible as their offspring total? On their 30th anniversary, the Arkansas couple seems as happy and in love as the day they got married.
July 21 marked the couple’s 30th anniversary, which they celebrated with a "special lunch," and prompted Michelle to blog about their humble beginnings.
Be available. Anyone can fix him lunch, but only one person can meet that physical need of love that he has, and you always need to be available when he calls. - Michelle Duggar

Michelle recalls how she personally baked their wedding cake, wore Jim Bob’s mom’s wedding dress and honeymooned in their native Arkansas.
“My wedding to Jim Bob almost 30 years ago was sweet and simple," she writes. "I wanted to do as much as I could myself as a way to save money."
“For the wedding cake, I made it myself and froze it. A friend decorated it for me using icing that she made with ingredients I bought for her."
"Another special touch was wearing Jim Bob’s mother’s wedding dress as my dress. Everything [at] our wedding was so inexpensive, but perfect."
