The show is about the Duggar family, which consists of parents Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar and their 19 children, nine girls and ten boys (including two sets of fraternal twins), who all have names starting with the letter "J". The family is conservative Christian and has strong beliefs in such things as homeschooling, and spending very little time watching TV and being on the Internet. The show's fifth season premiered on August 3, 2010.

Jim Bob and Michelle first met when Michelle had experienced a religious conversion and Jim Bob, along with other church members, were sent for follow-up visits. The Duggars have been married since July 21, 1984. The Duggars elected to wait before having children and practiced birth control[5] during that time. It was four years before Josh, their oldest child, was born. The Duggars then resumed using birth control; however, Michelle conceived again but suffered a miscarriage. Believing the miscarriage was due to the birth control, the Duggars quit using all birth control. Instead, as they explain, they decided to allow God to determine the number of children they would have. Shortly thereafter, Michelle became pregnant again, this time with her first set of twins, Jana and John-David. Thereafter, approximately once every year and a half, Michelle would again give birth. The Duggars are conservative Christians, according to their family website; the children watch very little television and their Internet usage is restricted, according to Michelle Duggar in the show's opening. The children are home-schooled using a mix of materials, including those of Switched On Schoolhouse, IBLP and Accelerated Christian Education (ACE).[6] The children are encouraged not to date, but rather to go through courtship, in which the young man seeks permission from the girl's father to become engaged. All meetings between a couple include a chaperone, and they believe in abstaining from most types of physical contact and intimacy until marriage, except for holding hands and Christian side hugging. Oldest son Joshua married through courtship and insisted that it was his choice and not required by his parents, as he explained in an interview in the TV show. The Duggars raise their children using a buddy system, in which an older sibling is assigned to a younger sibling and assists in their primary care. According to Michelle, "They help them with their little phonics lessons and games during the day and help them practice their music lessons. They will play with them or help them pick out the color of their outfit that they want to wear that day and just all of those types of things."[7] In 2004, Michelle Duggar won the "Young Mother of the Year Award" in Arkansas, which is sponsored by American Mothers Incorporated.[8] Jim Bob is a former politician who served in the Arkansas House of Representatives from 1999 to 2002. The Duggars say their income is derived from the commercial properties they own.[9][10] The Duggars live debt-free,[11][12] which Jim Bob has said is "the fruit of Jim Sammons' Financial Freedom Seminar" he attended years ago (Sammons' Seminar is endorsed by IBLP). Their 650 square meters (7,000 square-foot) house was built by hand by the Duggar family themselves over the course of three years with minimal assistance from friends, primarily in the form of instruction. The home was completed on January 20, 2006. The painting, decorating, furnishings, appliances and other finishing touches, such as a stocked pantry, were provided by Discovery Networks and corporate sponsors as part of the one-hour television special.[10] The work on and completion of the house were the focus of a one-hour television special entitled 16 Children and Moving In. On September 26, 2008, their eldest son, Josh, married Anna Keller. In early April 2009, the couple announced that Anna was pregnant. When asked about potential names, they hinted in the interview in keeping with the same one-letter tradition. Josh stated they were thinking "M," after his mother, and on July 30, 2009, they announced via their website that their daughter would be named Mackynzie Renée Duggar. Mackynzie was born on October 8, 2009. On December 10, 2009, Michelle gave birth via emergency C-section to Josie Brooklyn Duggar, three months prematurely. Michelle had been rushed to the hospital for gallstones and it was there that doctors discovered she had pre-eclampsia and performed an emergency delivery. Josie weighed 1 lbs, 6oz at birth. A week after the baby's birth, Michelle reported that Josie was "doing as well as can be expected for a baby at her age. We are taking each hour as it comes." On April 6, 2010, after nearly 4 months in the hospital, Michelle and Jim Bob were able to take Josie home to their rental in Little Rock while they awaited the okay to take her home to Tontitown.[13][14] However, on April 8, 2010, Josie Brooklyn Duggar was readmitted to the hospital after her vital signs dropped. Fortifiers that were added to breast milk to help her gain weight seemed to be the cause.[15] Now that their newest addition is doing well the family has discussed the possibility of having more children in an exclusive May 2010 interview with Radar Online.[16] Michelle was quoted as saying: "We would love more! I'm 43 almost 44 this September, I know that my mommy years are probably numbered and I don't know how many more children God will see fit to give me. The first year for her [daughter Josie, born 3 months premature] will be just getting her strong. We are so grateful and thankful for the ones we have so we shall wait and see. "It is something we've been praying about because we do love children. Each child really is a gift and that just doesn't mean just our children. We asked the Lord to give us a love of children the way He loves children. That is something that we've prayed about and we'll just see what the Lord has in store for our family in the future." On June 3, 2010, Josie Brooklyn Duggar was released from the hospital, weighing 7 lbs., 6 oz., after being diagnosed with digestion problems that are linked to lactose intolerance. According to her doctor, she now looks like a full-term baby and is expected to continue to thrive.[17] The family was able to take Josie home to their house in Tontitown on June 25, 2010. Michelle Duggar reported that Josie is doing very well, and weighs about 9 pounds. "She has a double chin now," Michelle said, "it is so precious."[18] Family Parents James Robert "Jim Bob" Duggar - born July 18, 1965 (1965-07-18) (age 45) Michelle Annette Duggar (née Ruark) - born September 13, 1966 (1966-09-13) (age 44) Children Names Date of Birth Notes 1 Joshua "Josh" James March 3, 1988 (1988-03-03) (age 22) 2 Jana Marie January 12, 1990 (1990-01-12) (age 20) Birth via C-section[19] 3 John-David 4 Jill Michelle May 17, 1991 (1991-05-17) (age 19) 5 Jessa Lauren November 4, 1992 (1992-11-04) (age 18) 6 Jinger Nicole December 21, 1993 (1993-12-21) (age 16) 7 Joseph Garrett January 20, 1995 (1995-01-20) (age 15) 8 Josiah Matthew August 28, 1996 (1996-08-28) (age 14) 9 Joy-Anna October 28, 1997 (1997-10-28) (age 13) 10 Jedidiah Robert December 30, 1998 (1998-12-30) (age 11) 11 Jeremiah Robert 12 Jason Michael April 21, 2000 (2000-04-21) (age 10) 13 James Andrew July 7, 2001 (2001-07-07) (age 9) 14 Justin Samuel November 15, 2002 (2002-11-15) (age 7) 15 Jackson Levi May 23, 2004 (2004-05-23) (age 6) Birth via C-section, featured in a Discovery Health special 16 Johannah Faith October 11, 2005 (2005-10-11) (age 5) Birth featured in a Discovery Health special 17 Jennifer Danielle August 2, 2007 (2007-08-02) (age 3) Birth featured in a Discovery Health special 18 Jordyn-Grace Makiya December 18, 2008(2008-12-18) (&&&&&&&&&&&&06931 year 10 months) Birth via C-section 19 Josie Brooklyn December 10, 2009(2009-12-10) (&&&&&&&&&&&&033611 months 1 day) Birth via emergency C-section, featured in a TLC special Other family members Jimmy Lee "J.L."

Also, she does not favor courtship and insists she will encourage her future children to be kids and date, but also to be safe and respect themselves and their values.
