Caught in the clutches of... love? Follow up


Joshua Harris and his wife

So... great... Courting sounds nice.  Do I know of anyone in the whole universe who has done it?

Maybe not yet, but you will.  Just two of them are:
  1. Joshua Harris
  2. Josh Duggar
You may know Joshua Harris as the author of books "I kissed dating goodbye", "Boy meets girl", "Sex is not the problem, lust is", and his most recent "Dug down deep".  His younger twin brothers have also written a book entitled, "The rebolution - a rebellion against low expectations".

Dugger wedding
 You may know Josh Duggar (and I think it is funnily ironic that both of their names are Josh) as the eldest of 20 children in the Duggar family.

Shortly after Joshua Harris dumped dating and had written his first book on relationships, he met, courted, and married his long-time wife Shannon.  Now a father and pastor at Covenant Life Church. (There has been a nasty rumor that Josh and Shannon had divorced, but that, simply, is a nasty rumor.)

Josh Duggar and his fiance Anna purposed that their first kiss be on their wedding, and saved all physical affection to the maxim of holding hands before their big day.  They are now the proud parents of two children, making their the the Duggar seniors parents to 20 and grandparents to two, and the Keller's parents to 8 and grandparents to 2.
