After getting to know each other online, they met in person in Nepal, began an old-fashioned courtship and wed this summer. Jill Duggar Dillard and husband Derick, now expecting their first child – a boy! – started their marriage with a high level of commitment.
Fans of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting get to see the couple's nuptials in the special, 19 Kids & Counting: Jill's Wedding, airing Tuesday at 8 p.m. ET, where the couple chose a "covenant marriage" in Arkansas – making divorce more difficult.

Is there anything more cringeworthy than getting marriage advice from your soon-to-be in-laws?
Perhaps, if that advice spans topics from finances to marital intimacy – and is discussed publicly at a frozen yogurt shop.
Derick Dillard, who married Jill Duggar in June and is expecting his first child with her, had the awkward experience on Tuesday night's episode of 19 Kids & Counting. The couple had a premarital counseling session led by Michelle and Jim Bob Duggar.

Good news travels fast.
Though they'd only been married for a couple of months, Jill Dillard, 23, and husband Derick, 25, knew they couldn't keep their pregnancy news from their families for long.
The stars of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids and Counting, whose new season starts Sept. 2 at 9 p.m., got busy spreading the word almost as soon as they saw the positive pregnancy test – one they swiped from Jill's mom, Michelle Duggar's, stash.

Jessa Duggar followed her family's advice on how to find the perfect mate and, for her, it worked! She got engaged to Ben Seewald on Thursday.
But as fans of TLC's hit reality show 19 Kids & Counting – whose new season launches Sept. 2 at 9 p.m. – know, the family's views of love and relationships go far beyond their courtship rules of no hand-holding until engagement, and no kissing until marriage.
The Duggar Rules of Relationships also cover how to "court," not "date," what to ask a prospective suitor before you start courting and how to keep an existing marriage healthy.
