All of our family is involved in this relationship.The Duggars, all 21 of them, have a word for their unusually large family: "normal." In an interview with The Wire, four of the older Duggar women — 20-something daughters Jill, Jessa, Jinger, and Jana — used the word often to explain the reasoning behind their new book, It's a book about relationships, including romantic ones.The best common ground between the Duggars and the rest of us, strangely, may be found in some of the characteristics the Duggar women believe sets them apart.In the Duggar family, those who date to build relationships are often just "having fun," as opposed to looking for a serious partner.But the Duggars, who follow a particular branch of conservative evangelical Christianity, don't date. "We're even saving our first kiss," Jessa Duggar told The Wire in an interview, "for our wedding day." With such a different way of being, can the Duggars teach us anything about ourselves, as they'd very much like to do?To crib a relationship status none of the Duggars will ever use on Facebook, it's complicated."Jessa and Ben have said that was the only contact they would have, when they initially greet each other, when he comes to visit for their first hello, they have a quick 30 second or less side hug and a goodbye side hug and they agreed that would be the only contact they should have.""They want to wait on the physical relationship until later," she adds.

"Dad allowed them to do a side hug when they were officially courting," the 47-year-old mother reveals. The lovebirds, who met in church, are "enjoying getting to know each other and are recommending sermons to one another," Jim Bob tells the mag, adding that he and his wife are "so excited" for Jessa and Ben. Jim Bob explains that courting is much more formal process, which often takes place in a larger group."Courting is getting to know each other in a group setting, both families spending time together and the couple setting goals together to determine if they are meant to marry," he clarifies."With dating, a couple will often pair off alone and that sometimes leads to a more physical relationship." Mama Michelle also adds that courting is a serious process, where a couple puts deep considering into the notion of starting a family together."Courtship is not just about having fun," she explains.The real difference, then, is in how the Duggars see you and me.In the book, here is how the Duggar women describe teenage female sexual desire: "The girl may so yearn to feel valued and accepted by a male that she gives in to the boy's desires.
