Jill and Jessa Duggar Us Weekly Cover

When it comes to Jill and her husband Derick Dillard, or Jessa and her fiance Ben Seewald, fans who watch 19 Kids and Counting know how smitten they are.

Their love knows no boundaries, it seems ... well, except in the physical sense.

Strict parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar have imposed a stringent policy when it comes to letting their girls see young men, but they do not rebel.

On the contrary, Jessa and Jill buy in to the family philosophy, and then some.

When it comes to Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar, they are all about the sex, as evidenced by their giant brood. But there is a time and place for it.

That time is after marriage, the couple believes, no ifs ands or buts about it.

The deeply religious Arkansas family has brought courting into the national consciousness, setting it apart from dating as a means of finding a mate for life.

With courting, Jessa and Jill have shown, the entire purpose is to see if they can find a life partner in one person, not shop around or play the field.

Whatever you think about their politics or religion, it's worked out very well.

They're not even allowed to hold hands until after they get engaged, per Duggar family dating rules, and even then are relegated to that and side hug action.

That might seem like a drag, but it just makes it more special, they say.

"In today's day and time, it's a little bit strange to be in our early twenties and have not had sex," Jessa Duggar, 21, admits. "But it's how our parents did it."

And Jill Dillard, just a couple of months ago when she married Derick.

Now happily married and expecting their first child together, the couple's love story continued to play out on last night's 19 Kids and Counting Season 14 Episode 6.
