Jill Duggar Saving 'Kissing' For Marriage

But she did indulge in some hand-holding

Jill Duggar is getting married

One of the Duggar girls is engaged, yet she's in no hurry to consummate her relationship. Jill Duggar and fiance Derick Dillard are reportedly taking things so slow that they won't even kiss until their wedding day.

"We're just really trying to keep our relationship focused not on the physical but really just more on communication and continuing to learn more about each other," said 22-year-old Duggar.

According to an article in GMA, TLC's '19 Kids & Counting' star Jill is enjoying an old-fashioned courtship that has probably left even her parents, Jim and Michelle, a bit baffled. 

After all, the Duggars themselves admitted to going "farther than we should have" and making "some mistakes" in their courtship, though they too saved sex for marriage.

Of course the Duggars aren't advocating anything new, but simply embracing the wholesome values of a time when there was "less teen pregnancy and when the divorce rate was a lot lower."

Is there any merit in chastity? Do you think the Duggar way will inspire any other young adults?
