Of course they are. I'm sure Josh will have even more than 18 children since they're starting so young. No one in that family knows how to earn a living other than in a reality show.
Good for them!

Dunno...That's not news to me. It's like saying water is wet.

The Duggars are part of a creepy cult offshoot of Christianity known as the Quiverfull movement. The idea is that children are God's "arrows," i.e. soldiers in the coming war between Christians and infidels. A Quiverfull woman's only goal in life is to "sacrifice her body" by bearing as many children as possible. There are no options for her except to be a stay-at-home mom in a near-constant state of pregnancy. Even the rhythm method is off limits. Needless to say, this places a huge financial strain on most Quiverfull families.

Quiverfull families tend to follow the "neo-patriarchy" movement, as well. That is, the husband is the head of the household and the wife should not assert her opinions in any way, nor even harbor thoughts that disagree with her husband's decrees. They also practice a bizarre form of historical revisionism. According to them, even the Jamestown colonists were pious missionaries. They also hold a lot of ludicrously prudish beliefs. For instance, it is highly immoral for a woman to wear pants, or to apply chapstick in the presence of a man.

And is buying a car dealership in an era when cars no longer sell really the smartest investment?

The father was as state senator for a time and I've heard that the family has NO debt. I'd say that they are pretty good at handling their money.

I don't believe in their lifestyle, boy howdy are they nuts, but they didn't get a reality show until relatively recently, after like 14 kids.

They have only been on TV for a few years,they were self sufficient before that.

I don't get why they piss everyone off so much.

They might have always been "debt-free," but they weren't living anywhere NEAR as well as they do now now that they have their own show.

And Josh owns his own business (and house) because daddy gave it to him, which is fine, but let's not pretend that it's something he's worked for and earned.

I believe the house was built and paid for,but TLC DID offer to decorate it-and why not?
All kinds of people go on TV for free stuff

Josh worked for his dad before getting his own dealership.

Mar, I don't get it either. If it's such a problem then don't watch them, don't read articles about the, and ignore threads about them.
