Joy-Anna Duggar: What Marriage Advice Did Her Sisters Give Her?

by at .

Last week, Joy-Anna Duggar got married to Austin Forsyth in a gorgeous ceremony, with all of the many, many Duggars in attendance.

While we're sure it was a busy day for the whole family, some of her sisters were still able to set aside some time to help her out.

In a darling little video, Jana, Jinger, Jill and Jessa gathered together to give their 19-year-old sister some tips on her new marriage to her boyfriend of six months.

Sweet, right?!

The video, filmed for TLC, naturally, kicks off with Jinger musing about how weird it is that Joy-Anna is getting married, since they're used to her not even brushing her hair.

"She was out there, like, running barefoot outside, we'd have to bring her in and get shoes on her, and wash her face," she remembers.

A weird memory to share about a bride on her wedding day -- "hey, remember when you wouldn't even wash yourself?" -- but we'll go with it.

The other sisters switch topics a bit, with Jana saying that she's so happy for Joy-Anna,

Jill explains that it's "a fun time" after you get married, because "you're not having to worry about 'oh, I gotta meet you here' ... you're just together."

We're sure she's just talking about all the extra hang-out time, but we'd say there's a good chance she's also alluding to no longer being limited by side-hugs, if you know what we mean.

Jessa seems to hint at the same sort of thing -- she tells Joy-Anna that she won't be able to hang out with her family as much because she'll be "distracted" by Austin.

"I know that Austin's a great guy," Jessa goes on. "I know that he's very tender, very caring, loving guy, so I know he's gonna treat Joy well."

For some reason, right after that statement Jill jumps in with advice for Austin on what to do when Joy-Anna's crying.

"When you don't understand why she's crying, that's OK," she says. "Just rub her back or something."

... Thanks, Jill.

Jessa gets things back on track by telling Joy-Anna and Austin that their honeymoon is going to be super exciting, and that they'll get to make a lot of memories together.

"This is the beginning of your life together," she finishes with a smile.

But if you think the tips end there, you're wrong -- People actually attended the wedding, and Jessa and Jill also had some advice they offered in a statement.

"My advice to her for marriage was just to enjoy being a couple," Jessa said.

"I know that they're super excited to be getting married and it's going to be amazing. They're perfect for each other."

Jill, meanwhile, revealed "They're working on a house, so I told them, get curtains!"

What the hell, Jill?
