We have an update on the book Jeremy Roloff and Audrey Roloff teased to their social media followers in March.
And it's a rather HUGE update.
Earlier this year, the Little People, Big World stars excitedly told fans about this very cool project, explaining that they "have received thousands of comments, messages, and e-mails containing questions about dating, long distance, purity, conflict, love, and how we prepared for marriage."
So they decided to do something helpful with all of these notes.
They decided to write a book!
"The book is essentially our love story," Audrey explained at the time, adding:
"We are spilling never before told tales from our dating journey, and all the ups and downs and ins and outs of our love story...
"We cant wait to share what we've learned from our own dating journey in order to equip our readers to build Godly relationships from their first date to “I do” and beyond."
Aside from announcing a multi-week social media hiatus to complete this manuscript, neither Audrey nor Jeremy has said much about it...
... until now!
First, we can confirm that the memoir/self-help book will be titled "In A Love Letter Life" and it will be released in April of 2019.
Second, in her most recent Instagram Story, Audrey filmed a video of her computer screen, exposing some of the writing from this book and captioning the footage:
"Pushing hard to get this thing done on time."
What did the footage reveal?
It appears as if one section will be advice from Audrey on how to land an awesome husband such as Jeremy.
"Jeremy and I are advocates for being friends first," Roloff writes, explaining:
"Friendship lays the groundwork for pursuit. All the single ladies, volume up. You’re not giving a man the chance to pursue you if you’re the one doing the chasing, chances are the guy you’re after does not want to be caught."
Audrey has often felt comfortable giving marital advice, although she's sometimes gotten criticized for trying to profit off of it.
Adds the TLC star in this portion:
"If you start by building a friendship, the kind of man you want to marry will be empowered to pursue you. He will be willing to risk rejection, determined to be thoughtful and he will text you first, at least the majority of the time.
"Our period of friendship gave Jeremy the opportunity to pursue me."
There's something a little antiquated and even sexist about this, as Audrey states that a woman should never be aggressive, that she should turn dating into some kind of game.
It's 2018. Are we really arguing that men need to always text a woman first?
Roloff goes on to give a very specific account of her first date with Jeremy in the book.
Fans can expect it to follow the sort of Instagram posts she's often published over the years, many of which adhere to her Christian beliefs and her strict views on dating/marriage.
For example, after Jacob Roloff got engaged late last year, Audrey seemed to actually shade her brother-in-law for moving too quickly with his girlfriend.
She appeared to essentially judge the couple for having premarial sex.
"Some words on dating from a Christian perspective," she wrote at the time, standing on her pedestal and adding:
"Let’s just say you recently hurried into a relationship, dabbled with sexual intimacy, and then became emotionally attached.
"The main problem with this scenario is that it blinds you to red flags. It’s the classic ‘love at first sight’ trap. You begin to see the person you are dating as the ‘the most talented, most interesting, and most extraordinary person in the universe.
"As time passes, your friends and family may raise concerns about the person you’re dating, but you won’t be able to rationalize with them because all you will see is perfection.
"This is a titanic problem."
In other words:
Once you have sex with someone, you'll never be able to see his or her flaws because your mind will be consumed with lust. You'll just be thinking about the awesome intercourse and you'll be unable to think rationally.
That's an interesting take, we guess.
Do you agree with it?
And will you buy Audrey and Jeremy's book?
