18 Duggar Family Rules That Are Strict AF

By  | 

No birth control.

Not sure if it’s an actual rule, but they sure don’t seem to use it! Most of the Duggar girls are pregnant within a year after being married off, and Michelle (despite difficult pregnancies, premature deliveries, and a stillbirth) has said she leaves her reproduction in god’s hands. Seems … risky? Selfish? Exhausting? One of the tenants of Quiverfull is procreation, and followers eschew all forms of birth control, including natural family planning. Children are “unqualified blessings”, and the more the merrier. If they use birth control, they’re rejecting god’s blessings. It doesn’t matter if you can’t manage another child, or even afford another child. Gotta receive that blessing.
